    Current Employee - Services Manager  in  McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Services Manager in McLean, VA

    Pros

    If any, it would be networking and access to training provided through Deloitte University.

    Cons

    1. All the warnings in the world cannot prepare you for the internal dysfunction within this organization!
    2. The ethics hotline is useless when reporting violations because investigations are performed by internal Deloitte personnel who may and have had direct professional relationships with the employee being investigated.
    3. Favoritism and politics protect corrupt employees from reprimand or dismissal.
    4. Abuse of authority is common within Services management on all levels, and perceived as necessary in order to silence the voice of overworked service employees.
    5. Partners are fearful of addressing concerns or making waves internally because it may impact their ascent. As such, many are willing to ignore the suffering of other Deloitte personnel if there is no professional career gain in it for them.
    6. Changes made to the firms operating structure providing Deloitte Services oversight of administrative operations has been brutal on the moral across all functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upward management feedback should be used to measure performance across all functions.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    1)Big 4 Brand, 2) "Management Consulting" image, and 3) Exposure to multiple opportunities (few strings attached)

    Cons

    1) It's Partner culture company. Many Partners with different personalities. Few are great Many are average and Few are downright "bad apples". There is no consistency as an organization.

    2) Money corrupts even good people. As partners are "Business Owners". Many times greed from few Partners cause ruthless behavior. Employees are treated as disposable commodity, setup for unrealistic expectations and vagaries from Partner. Employee get discarded. It's big fish eating small fish world at it's best. The same culture percolates to next levels like Senior Manager / Manager level.

    3) You can control few things (hard work, knowledge update, dedication etc) but you can not control LUCK and Perception. Perception plays major part along with Luck for your survival and growth. * You need to get in alignment with Partner / SM * Many times even to stay at the same level ... you need to find your 'patsy / scapegoat" to wash your hands :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that you have close to 60% of total revenue from Technology (compare to other service areas) .. you might as well as learn how to handle technology culture. it's like math where 2+2 = 4 always. So don't punish the messenger for giving you answer as 4 .. despite you want answer 5. It's not employee .. it's you. it's not perception problem .. it's inability to understand the fact on your part.
