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

    Pros

    A large global employer with many opportunities with a good benefits and salary that could turn into a career.

    A large firm where if you are not management will be out of the loop in terms of decisions that will not give you all the information regarding your position for the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees truthfully and tell them directly what needs to be done or what will be done and don't rely on a recruiter or a HR manager to tell sensitive information.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many. It's a good name to have on your resume so that you can leave for a better opportunity after a few years.

    Cons

    Base compensation is abysmal. 401k match is even worse. Bonuses are sub-par. You won't be rewarded for good work, as the firm now seems to only care about whether you participated on proposals. The work itself wouldn't be terrible, except that we waste 90% of our time on meaningless tasks that we create for ourselves. Also, the "stay for the experience" argument is getting old, given that no one is making partner anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people about the way you treat them. Realize that we need people to actually do some client service work. Retaining work is as important as winning new work, and if everyone just worked on proposals we wouldn't actually make any money.

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

    Pros

    Access to the best people in their fields to aid you with your projects.

    Cons

    Watch out for leadership brought in from outside Deloitte! Some of them have a slash and burn attitude and you could be out the door simply because you work under someone targeted by the new MD or partner.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you bring in from other companies to play senior leadership roles. You are giving them the power to do a lot of damage to the firm.


  6. "Not as Advertised"

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment with lots of opportunity for stretch assignments.

    Cons

    Unrealistic workload expectations, inability to take advantage of flex work arrangements that are advertised to get them on Working Mothers lists, lack of focus on staff development due to push for billable hours

    Advice to Management

    Refocus expectations on hours to truly enable managers to develop their staff without fearing over-budget hours on engagements

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    The compensation is high for the post MBA consulting role. If you are able to secure a summer internship, they will pay for the 2nd year of your MBA.

    Cons

    The quality of people was very mixed. The accounting mentality is reflected in the utilization metric which is a sword on your head. The company acquired Monitor and did not have enough work for its own people.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not ask your employees to under book their work hours. The partners often ask this of their team members.
