    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of learning and development opportunities, good project experience relevant for what I want to do in the future. Sponsoring my MBA. Good about flexibility when client work allows for it, but can definitely be high-burn. Fun culture, good people.

    Cons

    High-burn, high expectations, but there is flexibility when client work allows. Don't always have great control over the work you're doing but it gets better as you move up and gain more experience.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Deloitte is a growing company with great employees. The perks and benefits are great, although many are unable to make full use of the generous PTO.

    Cons

    Although Deloitte is recruiting experienced hires in the Federal Health sector, it isn't well equipped to make the best use of their experience. Instead, energy is devoted to fitting experienced hires into the Deloitte consultant mold.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a true experienced hire onboarding program that will help experienced hires apply their expertise within Deloitte in a way that is valued.

    This is the worst company I worked in my life.There so much dirty politics with in the company.From outside this looks like a very good company.But internal politics are horrible.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Very few leaders are good and they already left the company. Alt travel is good.

    Cons

    No job security. They will take you out without warning. You should know how to be in good terms with one of the partners. If you cannot play that game you are out, no matter how skilled you are at work. You will not be promoted also.

    Advice to Management

    HR has to act like real HR. Do not loose good people.

    Excellent experience doing interesting projects for some of the biggest corporations in the world.

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was cool working with partners and upper management and the teams I all met were very dedicated to their work

    Cons

    I really hated the bro culture. It seemed like most people there came from a frat/sorority and they kept this kind of cliche up even at work

    Advice to Management

    Hire people from more diverse backgrounds. Get some super nerds in there or some ppl who are naturally awkward but awesomely confident when it comes to presenting their work

    I worked at Deloitte (More than a year)

    Pros

    None whatsover, there are no pros to working at Deloitte, specially if you are non-white and truly smart as your talents are never recognized

    Cons

    1. Racist - one has to be white to survive and thrive
    2. Partners in M&A and S&O are really incompetent - not capable of getting repeat business, but surprisingly system lets them stick on, while the senior manager gets axed out.
    M&A and S&O practices - specially US practice is most complacant with partners running thier own fiefdoms

    Advice to Management

    Change the performance evaluation process and structure - today it is 100% non-merit, a lot of negative group think at play, Deloitte's become a revolving door, if you include non voluntary attrition
    Introduce non-voluntary seperation at partner level(specially white partners) on annual basis, everyone has to be measured fairly, today white partners just have to be white to survive without bringing in new or repeat business

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any suggestions. The business model is what it is.
