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

    Pros

    These folks know exactly what they are doing. They set high standards, and consistently deliver. Their project expectations and planning is excellent. The top level management folks are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning. If you go to company social events (which are very frequent by the way), it is quite easy to have conversations with upper management people (Partners). Deloitte's hiring...

    Cons

    Work-life balance can become poor, especially during tight project timelines (This is expected in the Consulting Business). The employees have a significant amount of "firm-internal" training and knowledge contribution tasks. There are annual goal expectations. It can get tedious if you continuously work on high demand projects. There is intense competition, especially during targeted promotion/milestone years. There...

    Advice to Management

    I have high regards for the Senior Management in this company. I think they are the market leaders in the industry, especially with their consistent high standards. Personally, I think they should strongly encourage some "end-to-end" hands-on responsibility in the IT consulting division. There are very few hands-on guys. I have seen a lot of segregation of duties between people that causes endless heartburn during...

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place to start a career in accounting. I began working in the Salt Lake office right after graduating with a MAcc. The training I received was second to none and the people I worked with were even better. Continuing a career with Deloitte can be very lucrative if you have have the capacity and ability, work-life balance could suffer though. Another huge benefit I have received from my time with Deloitte...

    Cons

    The work-life balance and stress level ring busy season was not ideal. Hours were long and stress was high, but during the non-busy season hours were very manageable (40-45 per week) with low stress levels.

      I have been working at Deloitte full-time

      Pros

      Current business analyst at Deloitte within S&O. This job is a great place to start your career. Tons of great perks if you are young and single. Free flights anywhere, great meals for free during the week, credit cards points, hotel/airline miles, it can be a lot of fun. Learn a lot quickly and have the ability to try a bunch of different project.

      Cons

      It can take a toll on your personal life if you are traveling every week. A lot of the time you are stuck on projects you don't like, and it can be difficult to leave.

      Advice to Management

      PMDs are very out of touch with what junior staff want

      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

          Great place to start your career. People are generally very friendly and great to work with. You are able to have control over your career path to a fair extent, which is great

          Cons

          It's a big company and thus, comes with lots of bureaucracy and process. For the Business Analyst program, hiring timelines and salaries are fixed, and thus does not really reward top performers as much as other consulting firms do. Additionally, pay for Analysts is abysmally below market at this point because the firm has not raised starting salaries for 4-5 years.

          Advice to Management

          Be more on top of what the industry is compensating at. There are a lot of upset employees at the junior level because they do not feel that their pay is even close to market.
