    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Most of your co-workers are very smart and very motivated Interesting and challenging projects, at least for more senior staff They pay well They have robust internal processes (this is also on the cons list) Big project teams, with someone to do everything (another thing that could be on the cons list) With Deloitte on your resume. you will get a lot more attention when you apply to future jobs, not unlike having...

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations about how hard people should work. To be 100% utilized, you have to bill 45 hours a week. This is on top of many hours of unbillable time that you have to spend on internal Deloitte process stuff and travel. They justify the 45 billable hours thing by giving managers 6 weeks of vacation a year, and that is good for the U.S., but only standard in a lot of countries. They pay lip service to work/life...

    Advice to Management

    Well, if they cared about me wanting to work there, they should change their whole business model, try to staff people locally more often, or at least not send people from the west coast to east coast projects, so they have to fly on Sunday. They would ease up on the up-or-out thing for partner-track employees (that wasn't me, but still seems harsh) and they would design their CBT training modules and other constant internal-process-related...

    "Great place to launch a career"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Los Angeles, CA

      I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

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

      Cons

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

      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...

      -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...

      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.
