No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Increasing brand, good people, pretty good benefits. Some of the work done in the Health Care and Life Sciences groups is very cool. Very little other true strategic work outside of this.

Cons

Compensation is lower than at other major consulting firms. Too little focus is put on project performance, and too much of your rating and compensation is based on non-client work.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. No other place to get experienced with the most broad spectrum of professional services (strategic/operational advisory through implementation)
    2. Top Talent
    3. Brand value
    4. Entrepreneurial culture - if you have ideas and can articulate and relate well, sky is the limit

    Cons

    1. High expectations on performance (which is usually exceeding expectations for other firms) esp. given top talent across the board
    2. Can take a while for experienced hires from tier2/3 firms to align and adopt. No limits for top talent though
    3. Independence restrictions to consulting is not necessary!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up on the strategy execution! We have aggressive goals but take care of talent while executing on firm's strategy. Lets maintain our uniqueness.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Numerous trianing opportunities, maternity leave (8 weeks +) paternity leave (3 weeks), very competitive pay structure, volunteering and networking are highly encouraged, young work force, numerous office locations, remoting/working from home on some days is acceptable based on your clients.

    Cons

    work life balance is preached but not always possible. You have to be disciplined to turn off from work otherwise it will take over your life. Senior Consultant and below: Utilization/Billing hours is your top priority

    Advice to Management

    More firm activities should be counted toward utilization since there is such an emphasis on them.
