Audit Senior Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 15, 2017
Deloitte & Touche is a great company to start your career because you learn how different businesses operate, how to pay attention to details, how important to document and provide support for work completed and the important of interacting with employees at different levels.

Great benefits, really smart people, but highly political. As my boss once put it, "it's not just about being really good at your job." You have to be able to attach yourself to the "right" people to get ahead.
Senior Manager Strategy & Operations (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 13, 2017
A great example of a firm making professional services more humane and smarter service to clients at the same time. Deloitte is a leader in inclusion, family balance, non-traditional leadership and client-service excellence.
Difficult business model but fantastic resources available.
Consultant (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – January 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.
Terrific people to meet and work with, top-tier compensation and benefits, great opportunities for training and development.
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 Company to work for and have a lot of caring people who really listen to their peers and colleague's They are world wide They have a vision for the future They have a roadmap that shows they are ahead of the competition
If you love challenges and travel, this is for you!
Consulant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 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.
Travel, hotel and flight points, different projects

Deloitte Advisory is way different from consulting and they typically operate as separate companies and the difference is a lot. DC gets the better jobs and are typically paid about twice as much as the DA folks.
