High Pressure, High Reward, High Politics, Unnecessary Stress
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 25, 2016
I worked for 5 years in consulting and 3 years in an internal role. All 8 years were challenging, but what I experienced in each role was very different. There is a lot of pressure to perform well, which provides stress but also a lot of opportunity to learn and grow quickly - hence the high reward.
Unfortunately, with this high pressure comes a lot of unreasonable expectations that hinder work/life balance and create unnecessary stress. There are also a lot of politics that you deal with - at Deloitte and at the client.
Overall, it was a good place to start my career, but my health and personal relationships would probably be better if I had only spent a few years at Deloitte and left for a less stressful company.
Unreasonable expectations, Poor work/life balance (despite what they say)

Good learning opportunity for starters. You will let to learn so many new technologies since there are many projects within the same building. Every person you meet has worked across the different project so you will also learn new things from that person.
some times free lunch or dinner if you are working late
Extremely fast-paced environment with little on-the-job training

-Long hours -Little on-the-job training -People generally are more concerned with their advancement than helping develop staff below them -You will be successfull if you have solid accounting knowledge and ability to learn on your own
Exposure to different industries, good pay
A lot of working through lunch, no work-life balance
I learned to work as a team to meet deadlines and provide tax returns on a timely basis. I usually worked on partnerships and corporations and enjoyed the learning curve and being able to work on several projects at once.

There was no constant, partners were moving, colleagues were moving or leaving, a state of constant flux. Loved my job, thought it was secure as the key administrator/researcher for a team, but politics of those higher up muddied the waters.
Good pay and benefits, very smart people.
Reviews were a joke, bad politics, bottom line was king

Manager (Specialist Master) (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2016
A welcoming and supportive organization. Really interesting work opportunities with chances to expand and build skillsets. Demanding of core consulting skills - but willing to develop them in an industry hire - like me.
Flexible - if you like travel and variety
Much travel - which can be tiring if the commute is too long

Although a typical work day at D&T started around 9am-9:30am, I preferred to come in at 7:30am in order to meet deadlines and be as productive as possible. I worked closely with my team and developed good relationships with my interns, first year assistants, seniors and managers. I enjoyed traveling as part of the job, and wished to do more traveling. My clients mainly consisted of companies within the TMT (telecom, media and technology) industry, and I maintained a good working relationship with client staff. I very much appreciated my tenure at D&T, and I hope my experience and skills that I developed there can be put to excellent use at another growing and dynamic organization.
Travel, teamwork, collaborative and productive environment, diversity
Employees at Deloitte are really nice and are willing to go out of their way to help you and see you succeed. Regardless of the position or the seniority of the employee. They are all willing to help you and there are so much resources to utilize at the firm.

Deloitte is a culture of "if its to be, it's up to me". There is no hand holding for professional growth, you have to take charge of your own career and get out there, network internally and make things happen.
The people are amazing. Smart, innovative, personable. I am lucky to work on a great team with very high quality peers.
Culture of innovation, flexible work arrangements, work life balance for internal positions
comp can be lower than market for internal opportunities - you pay for work lift balance
