A tough hill to climb before building a network, but once at the top, smooth sailing

Pros

- You work with the best;
- Privately held means profit sharing for all;
- Strongh emphasis on networking results in "small company" family-style relationships with upper management.

Cons

- Expected extra-curricular activities are burdening on your personal time.
- MCC profile seems to play little effect as to expected commitment.
- Strange multi-tiered performance review system with little clarity, seemingly relying on strength of network / relationships more so than on merit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- 360 Reviews shoudl be mandatory for all projects and relationships at Deloitte. Many times, new Managers are hired into the firm that are not apt for the role, making it difficult for those subordinate to them as these managers adjust.
- Also, the performance review system needs a serious overhaul. Adding additional forms isn't an overhaul, but just more "red tape."

    Excellent firm - but you've got to do the heavy lifting

    Pros

    Ample opportunities for training, multi-disciplinary experience, and work on substantive high-profile issues w/ smart, sharp teams of talented people. I've been impressed by the depth of expertise I've come cross. We've got libraries upon libraries of resources, tools, and methodologies to pull from to get the job done. (though finding the right resource in a stack of resources can be tedious at times)

    Cons

    Deloitte's an outstanding firm for professional development, career growth, and one packed w/ plenty of opportunities. To succeed, however, you've got to be dedicated to steering your own course, finding the right engagements that meet your goals, and resist the urge to be staffed on a project b/c it's convenient for senior management and their resource teams. This firm's talent runs deep and it's a joy on most days to work here. Work-life balance can be a challenge at times b/c "building your brand" means copious hours outside of client time - writing white papers, leading communities of practice, and creating firm "eminence". If you can get over that hump (and the tedious consultant-speak that comes w/ them) than you'll be a happy consulting camper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One size fits all does not a happy consultant make - and forcing every client-facing employee into a model that weighs client and internal work equally w/ compliance for training and regs is a recipe for disaster - and a terrible way to balance one's life.
