    I have been working at Deloitte as a contractor (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: your projects suffer which ppl take as a result of you not knowing what to do; or management inquires into why you're not doing more.
    - LONG hours as a result of off-shore communications. Typically 10+ hr days needed to get minimum work expectations completed
    - No work / life balance (not to be confused with ability to work from home as needed)
    - Lack of management or senior input & availability.
    - Long term employees that are comfortable with 50+ hr work weeks create a lot more stress and noise around projects than is necessary.
    - Lack of communication and responsibility
    - Excessive amounts of process and red tape that are Deloitte specific, and not industry specific. BIG learning curve, if someone can take the time to share.

    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.

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

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to grow your network.
    High visibility into what is trending and where we're going in the future.
    A lot of projects with ample amounts of areas to use your strengths.
    I get to work remote sometimes

    Cons

    Everyone seems heads down.
    Culture seems to promote working some nights and weekends.
    I have been on 5 large projects at once and it made me slip on the lower priority ones.

    Advice to Management

    Create more team building opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility
    Transparent feedback for improvement to next level through the various reporting metrics
    Upward mobility is set in stone if you are good at your job you will get promoted
    Great young people to get connected with
    Great place to begin caterer but probably not somewhere to stay long term

    Cons

    This job requires lots of writing and documentation
    Over worked

    Advice to Management

    I think the work could be divided up better. Some new hires get better clients that are large and don’t require one to monitor their hours billed as closely. However if you have multiple small engagements you can gauarentee that your busy season will be year round and there will be no time for pto unless you make the time.

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

    Pros

    Deloitte has great benefits, including 401(k) match, pension, health, and wellness subsidy. PTO is accrued at a very reasonable rate, and there are generous holidays. Deloitte expects employees to make the most of their time off, so your vacation time is expected to be away from work. There is a pervasive attitude at Deloitte the what is best for your career is what is best for the firm.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a high-performance firm, as such, the exception is that employees are high performance. This can lead to long hours and high stress.

    pay at least median market value and provide equal opportunities for growth in services

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

    Pros

    Abundance of opportunities to learn. Benefits are great. Tend to hire smart and motivated people.

    Cons

    Many senior managers don't know how to manage people. Personal/professional growth are extremely difficult when they don't provide feedback and take actions counter to their words. If you end up with a bad manager, the experience at Deloitte isn't good.

    Advice to Management

    Directors need to make a much more concerted effort to talk with people 2-3 levels below them to avoid situations where bad managers continue to get praise because they know how to manage up well.
