    I have been working at Deloitte for less than a year

    Pros

    - On-site cafe w/ weekly local food / restaurants served - Decent hourly rate for contractors (but only for hours worked, not PTO or holidays)

    Cons

    - Quickly hired, one interview - should have been a red flag (just needed another body in a seat) - No on-boarding/introduction to work, projects, teams, or office. Just thrown into the fire to be the new scapegoat for delays or miscommunication - Expectation is to work whatever hours are needed to get the work done, knowing that not all over-time is approved or paid. If you only work 40 hrs/week, 1 of 2 things happens:...

    Advice to Management

    Sort it out. Put time and effort into getting your employees up to speed and you'll have happier, long term employees. Foster a better culture and team, and you see an increase in quality of work. I have no idea how Deloitte has won "best places to work" - probably bc of the PPMD ("VPs") who reap all the benefits at max pay.

    Pros

    I went to Deloitte Digital because I wanted to get exposed to diverse clients and projects and that's exactly what has happened. I strongly recommend working there, if you can get in. Great experience.

    Cons

    You will be challenged, and it will make you a better professional.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can expect lots of autonomy, challenging projects, great benefits. Great place to launch a career and learn business

    Cons

    Long hours and high expectations. Consultants of all levels work very hard just to meet expectations for clients internally and to compete against others.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities that allow management to have consistent approaches to managing work and their people.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All the great things (talented co-workers, excellent learning opportunities, a culture promoting innovation and hard work, etc.) you would expect from a solid management consulting firm

    Cons

    1. Messy leadership structure - not sure who is in charge of what. 2. Top-heavy org structure: some stats to share - 8 partners and 2 senior managers share the credit for a project run by 1 manager supported by 2 senior consultants and 2 consultants. 3. A flawed performance evaluation process based on mis-aligned performance metrics - Way too much weight is placed on firm activities, which in most cases add...

    Advice to Management

    Do what you would advise a client - align performance evaluation process/metrics with the value proposition of the firm, i.e., creating measurable value to the client, which subsequently brings in both and follow-on business.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's difficult to find a consulting agency where the focus is on the quality of the deliverable and not doing things at the absolutely lowest cost. The rest of Deloitte does their best to leverage the strengths of the design driven methodology. Most teams are set up to work collaboratively, in the same space, and most clients are open to feedback about what is being built.

    Cons

    Deloitte isn't a hierarchal organization, so getting permission to do something is nearly impossible. You can use this as motivation to solve problems yourself, but there's rarely a "correct" way to do something. And, additional interaction with offshore resources threatens to cause more off-hours time commitments, something most employees didn't originally sign up for. Also, it's not clear what the long-term compensation...

    Advice to Management

    New projects are slow to materialize, so a greater focus on selling will energize current employees and protect the future.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A good place for folks in earlier-stage of their careers

    Cons

    1. Reward "firm activities" to a laughable extend. We are in the business of serving clients; thus, how well consultants meet or exceed clients' needs should carry the most weight in performance evaluation rather than how many hours she/he spends on organizing "events" 2. Staffing is overly personal-network-driven.

    Advice to Management

    1. Align performance metrics with the essence of the consulting business. Otherwise, you will get what you want, i.e., a group of talented event organizers 2. Re-visit the staffing model to best utilize resources
