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

    Pros

    You learn a lot.
    The people are great.
    The pay is good relative to COL in the area.
    Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Little regard for what your career goals are.
    It's very difficult to change trajectory once you start.
    Good luck moving to data analytics or business analysis if you start as a developer.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the interns one simple question "Do you know what you want to do?"
    If the answer is no. place them where you see fit. If the answer is yes, try to accommodate them. You will see lower turn-over rate and happier returning full-timers.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, access to excellent training and development tools and resources, generous PTO, each employee has a coach/counselor and on-boarding adviser to help with performance and development, many talented and friendly colleagues, culture of excellence. Although it did not work out for me, I still believe it is a great option for many others and I have seen many inspiring success stories for myself.

    Cons

    The USDC business that I supported does not operate the same way that the Deloitte Core Consulting practice operates, so much of my initial training and expectations did not apply once I was on the job. Networking and relationships are critical to success there, and this is a double-edged sword, In my case, I established great relationships with virtually everyone except the primary decision-makers. I was constantly told that it takes a year to learn my role, but was only given 4 months. Also, every obstacle faced was attributed to some type of "learning curve" on my fault, including not being included on emails or in conversations regarding information I was supposed to be tracking or data errors that I later learned were happening across the board. My experience was completely different from those of my peers working in other areas of the firm, including some who started on the same day. Much of the Deloitte culture that I researched was not the same in the USDC.

    Advice to Management

    Consider using more of a 360-degree evaluation approach, even for new hires. Train coaches to consider all options in problem-solving, not simply assuming that everything they are told is accurate. Ask questions and investigate the true cause of issues or challenges rather than assuming everything is due to a learning curve or employee shortcoming. Also, no employee should ever be blindsided by a termination (i.e. being told on a Tuesday that things were "great" then terminated on a Wednesday). In the unfortunate event that you do need to terminate someone, doing so by phone then asking that the person drive back to the office to return company property is not the most sensitive option. Consider inviting the person to the office so that a member of HR can deliver the news in person or at least be there while the news is delivered on-site. Overall, I still believe Deloitte is a great opportunity but the USDC has a culture entirely its own (not a judgment, simply an observation).

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

    Pros

    Health Benefits, Paid Time Off

    Cons

    Salary, extensive travel with no consideration for people's medical needs or work life balance, long hours, over complicated management structure, lack of accountability, lack of consistency, childish responses to serious issues, lack of professionalism

    Advice to Management

    Take time to speak to your employees. Take five minutes to consider what may be effecting their work, don't accuse them of not being able to do their job without assessing situations. An environment where only those who play golf with the boss on Friday's get ahead and get the new/exciting work doesn't breed positivity.

    USDC management should give their employees opportunity to grow and alloew them to maneuver in the firm not stick to USDC only

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every day is a chance to learn something new
    You have a chance to make an impact at a national level
    When a project is good- it is very, very good, it really depends upon your team
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Management by exception seems to be the rule.
    It can be very difficult to play to your strengths- passing on any "opportunity" can result in under utilization resulting in a poor performance rating- so it is hard to navigate to work that truly fits your talents and interests.
    You are constantly being judged in a very competitive setting. Some people thrive on this, others not so much. So you need to think, before you join, if this will work well for you.
    Work- life balance means that work is your life

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Salary. If you are not worried about how many hours you need to work per day and you want to grow in your career path quickly then Deloitte is the best place. If you prove your strength and capabilities and available for long work hours a day for the project then you will get promoted every 2 years.

    Cons

    Work life balance is horrible. No flexibility. Projects expect every resource to work atleast 12 hours per day. No proper planning and too much of adhoc work and change in project planning.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to think about work-life balance of their resources seriously and plan the project planning accordingly.
