Project Associate (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – August 18, 2017
Deloitte in Rhode Island was an interesting role. Consulting can be tough if you're not willing to take on new responsibilities. You have to be willing to step up and volunteer for new opportunities. If you aren't a self-starter, it is not the job for you. Deloitte does take very good care of its employees but the work can get stale if you're not growing.
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – August 18, 2017
Tremendous culture. Lots of energy. But poor work life balance. There are many opportunities to move up and sideways... but in the end, it's a business and you need to bring in new business to move up.
Audit Senior (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 18, 2017
Good employer with very good benefits. Company is very inclusive for all type of people from all over the world. Working hours are negative side as it can be up to 80-90 a week and when you are on salary, you don't really see benefits of it
Executive (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 15, 2017
Cant really say enough about this company. It was a truly remarkable experience offered to me. All requests for professional assistance to complete my tasks were never denied. Made my responsibilities all that more rewarding.
Advisory Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 15, 2017

Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – August 15, 2017
Fast growth, good culture and great benefits. Work with very impressive clients and very cutting edge technologies. However, very poor work life balance due to travel and firm demands. Minimum of 45 hours a week, not including travel time or additional firm activities.
Working for Deloitte Consulting provides an excellent opportunity to work with intelligent, fun people and impact the world for better. A typical day involves working at a client site helping the client to innovate their business process through a strategy or IT project implementation. You have the opportunity to work with talented people - both within Deloitte and at the client site. The focus at Deloitte is how to impact the customer and make improvements in meaningful ways.
The team is supportive but competitive environment. Leadership and staff are dedicated and frequently go the extra mile in effort and in time to deliver the highest quality. Results oriented evaluations are the norm.
opportunity to work across industries and develop a specialty, great learning opportunities, good team environment, ethical culture
100% travel, long hours, highly competitive, be careful of burnout, need to have a plan to support work life balance
Audit Senior (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 14, 2017
Lots of potential for aspiring youths willing to sacrifice personal life for career advancement. Working for Deloitte provides the expected corporate environment with good training and career prospects, but asks a lot in return. Not the place to work for everyone, but a place to succeed for some.
Senior Tax Consultant (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 13, 2017
Expected to work more than 70H per week during the busy season. The busy season is typically 5 months so half of the year, I am expected tow work long hours. If I do not make it to the chargeable goal hours, was asked to use PTO.
Deloitte gives you a solid backbone from where once can carry not only the reputation but also work ethics. Deloitte is a excellent platform to start a career because it provides you with all the resources needed for a motivated employee to excel whether it is tax, audit or advisory.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 12, 2017
A culture where everyone is groomed to talk the talk but lack technical skills and real hands on experience. Most colleagues will piggy back on the one person in the room who is actually well versed in subject matter. Job includes a lot of political strife, insane hours (most of which are just because Deloitte management can't get its act together and not because of client expectations). All in all, very difficult to have a personal life in the slightest degree. Management will act as if they own your life and time. I would take back the years I've given this organization if I could. Worst mistake I've made in my career.
I found out I was being paid well below what I should have been, when I was finally laid off, I was being taken advantage of, I was doing the work of a manager but was never promoted probably so they didn't have to pay me what I was worth.
great benefits I loved working at the company I loved my job
you need to be part of the good ol boys network to move ahead
Lead Functional Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – August 11, 2017
Only meant for a person who does not prioritize work life balance, good growth if so. Also lack of flexibility in the paths you take, industries you want to be a part of. As long as you have a mentor you can constantly do everything for, you are sorted.
