Great place to work but currently very top-heavy, which limits upward mobility

Current Employee - Tax Manager

I have been working at Deloitte full-time

Pros

Smart people, fast-paced environment, great benefits

Cons

Below market compensation, limited upward mobililty. You get tons of PTO but good luck using it; demands on your time will severly limit opportunities to take that personal time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thin the middle management herd. Too many people have stayed-on for too long, out of the fear that has followed the financial crisis. Time to fix the team such that only strong performers remain, so that all are able to be promoted based on merit rather than tenure.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Great exposure to many different clients, different industries and subject matter
    * Excellent benefits (medical, 401K, time off) - Most of the reason I stay
    * Appreciate the culture, even if it doesn't always filter down to lowly consultants to enjoy
    * Travel (both a pro and con depending on perspective - new place, points, miles)

    Cons

    * Feel under-compensated (especially in Tax, compared to Golden Child Consulting)
    * Travel - *unpredictable*, tiring, grueling, cuts into work life balance
    * Upward mobility feels stunted
    * Management of my particular group feel disorganized and micromanaged, focusing on the wrong things rather than growing the practice.
    * Work spills over until personal time - wknds, evenings...
    * Passive aggressive comments from mgmt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency, more commitment, keep meetings, invest in your employees, don't micro manage... less passive aggressiveness

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    - Smart people
    - Challenging, competitive environment
    - Ability to be entrepreneurial
    - Renewed focus on growing people
    - Commitment to the community, internal and external
    - Leading practices and flexibility to innovate

    Cons

    - Little to no work-life balance
    - Rating system is forced and overly competitive
    - Too much of a focus on who you know
    - Not always easy to change focus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Bid the work, so people aren't killing themselves
    - Don't get too caught up on the rating curve; our people are good and the competition isn't helping our relationships or our retention
    - When setting our firm profit/revenue goals; be realistic and fair
