I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great people. Smart, open-minded, driven.

Cons

Lots of overtime. But you're usually only billing 45 hours so the rest is gravy. Provided by you. On promotion milestone years you are also expected to kick even more butt with hundreds of additional firm hours. Basically, if you don't have a life outside of work, this job is for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop pinning billable hours at 45/week. Consultants should bill what they work. Leads to better feedback mechanisms and better incentive for good management.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Deloitte is an accounting firm. I was working at the IT Audit department. I prefer the collaboration between these two departments. The focus on accounting in combination with IT was new for me.

    Cons

    During the interview proces Deloitte only focus on my skills and my education. I tried to understand the Deloitte culture, but had to less time to get information about that. Afterwards I learned that it was better to took that extra time. I didn't like the culture at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that working at Deloitte kills your career. Deloitte doesn't have an eye for talent and treats most people the same way (consultant, senior consultant, manager etc etc.). Your growth path is planned and to rigid if you work here.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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