    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor

    Pros

    Extremely high pressure with impossible time constrains and objectives

    Will burn through a conveyor belt of contractors without achieving anything

    Daily is well below market rates

    Personal attacks by management

    Cons

    Lots of weekend work

    Early morning meetings, expected to stay until the work is complete

    Permanently shifting goals

    Advice to Management

    The long term strategy to transition to a technology company is never going to happen without the long-term assistance of technology contractors
