Former Employee - Senior Consultant in New York, NY
Former Employee - Senior Consultant in New York, NY

I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Excellent on-the-job training - project management, presentation delivery, presentation development, etc.
- Respected and sought after reputation
- Intelligent peers
- High Energy/Get-the-job-done culture
- Attention to detail - from delivery to services provided to consultants (e.g., HR)
- High performers are treated well
- Adherers to 3-4-5 work week (Fridays work from home office)
- Project/Career opportunities are driven by networks/connections (great for those who keep up with social activities)

Cons

- Service delivery, firm activities, and client engagements trump consultants' work/life balance requirements, which is a basic necessity for those that have and want to keep their families
- A lot of time outside of business hours is spent on work (i.e., travel, firm requirements, project status calls, etc.)
- Project/Career opportunities are driven by networks/connections (difficult for those with outside of work responsibilities and did not "grow up" at the firm)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reputation for service delivery is strong and drives business. If looking to retain professional hires in the consulting realm then provide more thorough "analyst level" training (i.e.,
presentation, speaking, RFP response) to boost morale.

    Pros

    - Compensation is good to excellent
    - Plentiful opportunities depending on who you meet/how you network
    - Generally good work environment

    Cons

    - Work-life balance is your responsibility and yours alone -- gets a lot of lip service, but the expectation is you will put work first 99% of the time
    - Lack of diversity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on cost cutting and unrealistic growth is demotivating
