I have been working at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)
Working in the USDC you have less travel than a core consultant. Deloitte has a good culture and is focused on your impact both with clients and internally. There always seems to be food around, plus free coffee in the “Dcafe”. You are assigned a coach who is invested in your career and leadership seems genuinely engaged in your success.
The USDC offers less benefits than the rest of the company. The majority of the reasons they win all the awards (paid family leave, Deloitte University, etc) don’t apply to you if you work at the Delivery Center. You are constantly told that you are a “lower cost talent model” and that is the reason why... supposedly the lower cost to the client is that we don’t travel like a core consultant but I think the company should be careful about constantly telling a certain group that they are “lower cost”. It creates a mentality amongst both core and USDC workers that they are second tier, get paid less and aren’t quite as good. It makes sense to offer more incentives/benefits to the people who travel for a living, but it could be a bit more equitable. For example- core gets 16 weeks paid family leave and USDC gets only 2... this should be increased to at least 6 so that a new mother could get the full 12 weeks of FMLA time off paid (when combined with STD). Many competitive companies offer more than this to employees who don’t travel at all.
Advice to Management
Be careful with the language about calling some groups “lower cost” without explaining the why behind it to make sure they aren’t perceived as lesser than.
