"Don't expect to have a personal life"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Expect high compensation and an excellent benefits package
Opportunity for travel to great places (some of mine included Hawaii, NY, So Cal), but also included awful, depressing places in the middle of nowhere (Kansas, the Dakotas)

Cons

See above in terms of travel: you have very little say in where you end up, and sometimes you're there for 12+ months at a time
EXTREMEMLY political, and difficult to get highly rated or a promotion unless you're chummy with sr. management and partners
Do not expect to have a social life if you're single, unless you're interested in hooking up with colleagues on the road (which I was NOT)

Advice to Management

Promote on merit, not on personal relationships

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

    Pros

    People focused and very non hierarchical culture. Lots of options to grow career - managers highly support staff, in case you want to make mid course adjustments in your career within Deloitte (they are great at deploying people to the right jobs where one has passion in and can deliver excellent results). Staff is given lattitude to innovate/do things differently.

    Cons

    Nature of job requires lots of hours. One has to be very organize pd to strike a balance between work and personal life. But even then, you find more skew ness towards work life. That's why the culture and work environment becomes even more important and Deloitte can offer you a dynamic envirompnment to not only build but also enjoy your career...also, managers embrace flexible working ours and this helps staff to manage better their personal lives

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support staff in creating a balance between their work and personal life - come up with more innovative ways of doing this.
