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

    Pros

    Big four, far more complexity than many opportunities. Many great people.
    They are doing their best.
    They are trying very hard to value their employees, they provide many activities and dump free food on their employees. The directors and partners have a great sense of humor, and are very human.
    Incredible level of integrity of many higher-ups.
    Emphasis on socializing and people are very friendly. I made many great connections that will last and that will surely prove invaluable.

    Cons

    Big push to use India. Versus E&Y & PWC I am told Deloitte Tax is trying to win by digging deeper and deeper into India. Seniors do not have time to teach. I was brought on as an experienced hire, previously a manager at an exceptional two man shop (ie billionaire individual and hedge fund client with $30MM in ordinary income.) I did not bounce when I hit the ground.

    Staff: lay low, be quiet, work 12-16 hours per day, bill 8 hours. Coming from a small firm I was naive and billed out all my hours, in training they said not to worry about it. Worry a lot! This might be specific to Deloitte Tax. Some departments might be different. I don't know for certain. If people hear you have missed a budget, it can spread like wildfire across the entire department, and your days are numbered.

    Highly political, many secret alliances with a director and manager in my group targeting certain people.

    I was told to stop being difficult and to do whatever I was told. Senior on a project made mistakes, and I left them in as I was told to, I got fried.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know, there are so many great people, but at Deloitte tax it seems like the dog is wagging the tail, and they are just cutting costs to win because they cannot compete with E&Y & PWC on quality.


  2. "Great company benefits, too little room to advance due to top heavy Partner / Director layer"

    Pros

    Excellent medical, dental, disability and life insurance
    Great opportunities to work at many different companies
    International opportunties
    Generous PTO

    Cons

    Top heavy partner / director layer with few opportunities to achieve this level
    Diminishing rate per hour in Technology consulting. Not able to keep high rates due to loss of footprint to competitors offering lower cost alternatives to Deloitte
    New hires are not the same caliber as prior years
