Advice to Management

Deloitte has a lot of great ideas, methods, morals, etc., however many of these things are not followed on the projects. Often the focus is purely on what is contractually required in the SOW, as opposed to what is best for the client. Unrealistic project timelines are consistently adopted and always end in horrible resources crunches, long weekends and late nights. Upper level management and partners need to start learning from their mistakes and manage projects more realistically, even if it means not winning the work. Don't underbid every project, and then kill your people to get it done.

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

    Pros

    The company has a good diversity program. They do a lot for charities in the local area.

    Cons

    It's obviously called WORK for a reason! Not that I mind hard work... I don't! I gave my 150-200% all the time! But it always seemed the more you did, the more they gave you... without any compensation or thanks in the process. Most of the employees are being stretched too far-- Ones with good work ethic are undermined and railroaded. Too many favorites... the rest will die trying. And nothing seems to change. Your job is safer if you brown nose to management instead of doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Consider replacing the current CIO, he may be intelligent but wisdom comes with age. Review what middle management is doing to employees. People are not machines and need a life outside of work. Focus on not demanding more than 45 hrs/week of employees. We will move on to better environments as opportunities present themselves. Make sure new employees get the training they need to be successful.

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

    Pros

    Deloitte was a great work enviroment in terms of the management, development opportunities, and exposure to work on big clients. The caliber of colleges is top notch; the client experience is excellent and can provide a stepping stone for your career.

    Cons

    some of the cons include heavy travel. I was traveling 100% of the time for my entire time at deloitte. The pay was low as well, based on this type of travel

    Advice to Management

    better compensation for mid level consultants
