Good brand name, but probably not the place for long-term career

I worked at Deloitte

Pros

a) Brand name - considered of the Big 4
b) Opportunity to work on a variety of things
c) Exposure to top clients

Cons

a) Performance reviews are very political. It is much more important to work with the right partners than do a good job
b) Delivery is poor - there are many great sales people at Deloitte, but many poor delivery people
c) Learn on your own, Deloitte will put you in many situations and you have to learn on your own because there is little training and the people you work with are poor at delivery
d) Siloed in their delivery model, so different areas compete against each other for client work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To be truly one firm, the incentives should be changed to support working toghther, instead of regional and service area silos

Performance management should be more objective and much more transparent.

    Popularity Contest, Very Cliquish

    Pros

    Deloitte does provide, at first glimpse, a collegial and familial environment. Externally, it is everything it appears to be - a large well run consulting machine. The majority of staff are intelligent, the company is well organized, staff at Manager level and below are approachable and candid, and the work can be very interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    On the Organization and Change team there is a lot of gossip, favoritism and cliquish behavior. There is less emphasis on consulting performance as related to client performance than on one's desire to kiss the behinds of the internal "in crowd". There are a lot of politics, a lot of back stabbing and less opportunity for Sr. Consultants and below to defend themselves against potential onslaughts of managerial self interest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your junior staff. Enforce a more objective 360 review process. Improve Top down communication.

    Pros

    Opens up doors to many great opportunities. Competitive salary. Challenging and exciting work environment. Great title to put on your resume.

    Cons

    A lot of work all the time. You stay very busy. The hours can often be very long and traveling can be a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at Deloitte is very strong. Staff gets assigned a senior person who offers advice and serves as a mentor.
