    Pros

    Great people; great opportunities; great training; perfect place to start a career; huge alumni network

    Fundamentally, Deloitte faces the same challenge as all Big4 or major consultancies: to succeed in the long term, your career must become your life.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Prestige of working for a Big Four consulting firm
    -I feel like I am paid fairly , but it's actually quite low compared to what I made before when you consider how many hours I work.
    --> 165k a year, working 4,000 hours of year, comes out to about $41 an hour. Compared to 2,500 hours per year for 140k (the comp for my previous role), which works out to $56 an hour (not to mention the opportunity to have a life outside of work.)

    Cons

    -Nobody seems to enjoy their work. I once asked a senior manager, "off all the things you've done for Deloitte, what have you enjoyed the most?" Her response was: "I don't even think that way. I just work here for the money." She happened to be talking with me at 10:00 o'clock at night--in between client meetings. Why work so many hours at something you do not enjoy?

    -The people in Human Capital do not seem to be excited about their field. Most of them would have preferred to work in another area, but were not skilled enough to get into Strategy or Tech. I joined Human Capital to improve people's lives at work, but the people here are unhappy.

    -I had a Principal ridicule me for asking for a reasonable accommodation for a disability.

    -I have had several managers ask me to falsify my hours. This makes it hard to reach utilization. On the other hand, if you refuse to lie, it affects your performance rating.

    -I have to pay $20-$50 per day, out of pocket, without reimbursement, for the privilege of working from one of Deloitte's offices.

    -Experienced hires are not given access to the best projects because staffing is based more on personal networks than skills, qualifications, or interests.

    -Despite their branding (which frames the company as strengths-based and inclusive), I have had a senior Principal tell me "we are not a strengths-based culture, we are a hierarchical culture and you will do what you are told."

    Advice to Management

    Hire another consulting company to fix your culture. Stop falsifying your hours. Measure engagement in a way that holds project leaders and coaches accountable for employee engagement, well-being, and turnover. Think about things other than availability when it comes to staffing projects. Live in accordance with your stated values.

    Pros

    Pays high, but you work a ton of hours for it. So, per hour, you aren't actually paid as well.

    Cons

    A lot: 60+ hour work weeks, bad clients, travel, etc.
