If you love challenges and travel, this is for you!
Consulant (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 11, 2017
I worked as a Technology Business Analyst (later Consultant) for three years. I believe that this is the perfect post-graduate job for anyone that is willing to travel every week - you get to see so many different industries and work with different departments, which is useful if you're not sure where you'll fit in.

You also get to work directly with the executive suite at large companies, something you'd have to wait years to do using the regular industry track.

However, the drawback is traveling and work intensity. You must be ready to jump on a plane every Monday through Thursday, and sometimes even stay weekends. On the days that you travel, be ready to be at the office at 7 am and not leave until 2 am. This is tough on relationships, family, and friendships even though Deloitte is trying to work on the work/life balance. However, for me, the compensation and the challenges made it worth it.
Pros
Travel, hotel and flight points, different projects
Cons
illusion of work/life balance, long days

Difficult business model but fantastic resources available.
Consultant (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAJanuary 13, 2017
Deloitte has every resource under the sun, and plenty of opportunities for practitioner development and growth -- however the business model requires practitioners to find their own project opportunities, which can be extremely difficult if the firm is not selling lots of new work. Practitioners are responsible for their annual utilization (total hours billed in the performance year divided by 2080 billable hours/year), which can suffer from slow project sales and cast practitioners in a poor light despite best efforts and regular contributions to the firm outside of billable client work.
Pros
Terrific people to meet and work with, top-tier compensation and benefits, great opportunities for training and development.
Cons
Challenging deployment model, limited practitioner agency in the face of slow sales growth, travel burden can be enormous, work-life balance is an ongoing struggle.

Great place to build skills, and develop
Solutions Manager, Performance Lead (Current Employee) –  Current work location - Arlington, Virginia, USA.November 29, 2016
Typical day at work is managing staff and deliverables in engagement and working directly with your contacts at the client. Co-workers are almost all young, and everyone is fairly social. Management varies widely depending on project. They have time-flexibility.Good Compensation Benefits, good peers and management
Skill enhancement - There are so multiple opportunities to increase your skills and the management provides many options to exercise one's talent and grow in the company.
Pros
Good Compensation Benefits, good peers and management
Cons
As with any consulting, travel and deadlines can present challenges

Great income, poor culture
Senior Technology Consultant (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAOctober 1, 2016
The compensation is excellent at Deloitte. The only problem is the people they hire. Young college graduates, no experience from top tier schools who thinks they know more than someone who's been in the business for years. This creates a very poor culture, many people have that bro mentality, and the females they hire know nothing about products, but they are physically attractive. It's more than the service but an image at Deloitte. Looking to leave to a company like Oracle. Advancement is also contingent on who you know.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Poor Culture, Advancement Lacks

100% Travel to usually terrible locations but good pay and benefits
Management Consultant (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 15, 2016
Not the job for you if you don't like to travel. Usually you'll have to travel to no name towns. Hit or miss on the project team members, could be great could be terrible. Lot's of ambiguity. Get paid well and have great benefits. Very strict promotion schedule, not at all a meritocracy. Very hierarchical with big headed partners that think they are God's greatest gift to the world.

Underpaid and Over Worked
Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  McLean, VADecember 17, 2016
Deloitte is the lowest paying of all accounting firms in the DC area, but is an excellent name to have on your resume. Multiple busy seasons are the norm and very few seem to be happy working here. Most people simply stay until they find a better opportunity elsewhere.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
No work life balance/ low pay

Avoid Tax
Manager, Business Tax Services (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 8, 2016
In the Houston office for tax, the culture is horrible. Most professionals are mean, arrogant, and disrespectful. If you are a minority forget it, you will never make it. Pay is sub-par to other Big Four. The benefits and people outside of that group are nice but I would not recommend Houston tax to my worst enemy. Just being honest.

Manager in Technology Strategy
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 19, 2016
I've had a great and diverse experience in the firm. Coming in as an MBA intern, there are few if any better options.

People overall are friendly, but it is a "Big Firm", "Small feel" environment, so it will largely depend on the team/engagement that you end up in.

Compensation is at par with the industry, without being above or below.

Overall a good place if you want to pursue a long term career in consulting.

Great organization, great people
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAOctober 14, 2016
Nature of consulting is not for everyone but Deloitte is the best place to be in Consulting. Deloitte is bit more conservative than other Consulting firms. The standards are higher and the expectations are greater than other firms.
Pros
Management and benefits, opportunities abound
Cons
long hours

Worklife Balance and Compensation are a bug minus
Salesforce Solution Engineer (Current Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLNovember 15, 2016
Work life balance and compensation are a big minus in deloitte. People are fired more.

Work culture is the best that I have seen in the consulting firms that I have worked on

Great place to work!
Tax Consultant, Tax Management Consulting (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 9, 2017
Deloitte is a great place to work. Their client base varies over multiple industries and exposes employees all over the market. I learned to work on different technologies and to work with different people.
If the compensation and benefits were as good as the work load, I would have preferred to stay.
Pros
Travel benefits
Cons
Lower pay in the market

Revolving door organization
Compliance (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTSeptember 10, 2016
Company culture is very poor, tends to be an environment where everyone attempts to look busier than they are in actuality. Not an inclusive environment at all. Collaboration is lacking here sadly. Depending upon performance review you can be "counseled out".
Benefits were really good, PTO, health stipend etc.
Pros
Benefits, Salary
Cons
Negative culture, Isolated Environment

There are always pros and cons to a big firm
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  NYAugust 31, 2016
Deloitte is a great place to start your career in terms of the exposure you get to various industries, types of roles/responsibilities and opportunities. If you can find your niche, align with the firm's strategy and build the right relationships, you can go far here.

Upper management is trying to improve work/life balance with a new "well-being" campaign, but the micro-culture on individual teams continues to be what dominates your life.
Pros
training & development opportunities for high performers
Cons
high expectations to be great at everything, numbers-driven cold machine

Great Company for Fast Learning, Poor Work Life Balance
Audit Senior Assistant (Current Employee) –  Jericho, NYAugust 6, 2016
This company gave me a step up immediately out of college and taught me a significant amount in a short period of time. Though the learning curve is steep, the people I worked with were very intelligent, and personable. The major issue with the company, is that you will have multiple busy seasons and a small amount of work-life balance. Many people are jaded into believing that working a 12 hour day is normal. The best part of the job for me was the people I worked with, and the amount that I learned, however, it was not worth it for me to give up years of my life for quick advancement. I learned many things in 2 years, such as: how to manage people, running a full audit engagement from start to finish, professional etiquette while travelling and managing multiple jobs, time management in extreme situations, meeting tough deadlines, running meetings, Sarbanes Oxley 404, filings such as 10-K, 10-Q, S-3, acquisition procedures, opening balance sheet, reviewing prior auditor's workpapers, etc. I have worked with companies that make $100M to $30B on an annual basis. I am glad to have worked with this company, and appreciate all that I have learned, but am happy to be leaving.
Pros
Free lunches, Intelligent employees, Benefits, Steep Learning Curve
Cons
Work Life Balance, Salary (no overtime/many hours/underpaid)
