Business Technology Analyst (Current Employee), Washington, DC – October 20, 2013
Pros: great people, name recognition
Cons: limited learning, meaningless work, poor management (all partners had to take an "art of empathy" course.. what does that say.. )
Deloitte is a great place to start your career and then progress to somewhere else where you can actually provide meaningful work. Very few analysts are learning real skills. Most analysts are highly-paid PowerPoint or PMO experts. Your opportunities within the firm are determined your first project and is completely out of your control. Stay for a – more... while then use the Deloitte name to get a job elsewhere.
Additionally, if you go to a "non-partnership" school, expect your raises to be less than half of your peers despite having the exact same performance ratings, experience and responsibilities. – less
Senior Consultant - Operational Capital Markets (Current Employee), New York, NY – October 8, 2013
Pros: colleagues, flexibility, marquee clients
Cons: being at the "mercy of the staffing machine"; compensation
Deloitte can be a great place, or it can be the opposite. It's always a "job within a job", and you can really win or really lose in this environment. I've had projects where that have satisfied me in every way, but I've had others where all I could ask myself was "how did I ever get roped into this". The lack of consistency in this equation is the – more... most difficult part about being in consulting. As someone who has spent time in another Big 4 professional services firm, I find the politics at Deloitte to be far more prevalent as well. – less
Project Associate (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – October 8, 2013
Pros: good development
Cons: long work hours; can disrupt your work/life balance
Deloitte is a really great place to work. I really enjoy their diversity and they stress inclusion. You can work long hours but they have great development and most senior and executive management are approachable. Overall, I think this is an excellent place to build your career.

Tax Consultant II / New Jersey BTS (Former Employee), Parsippany, NJ – September 30, 2013
A typical day at work would start at about 9 am and stretch to anywhere from 6:30 pm-9pm. we would start off the day by having a meeting to touch base with the rest of our team, our clients and our peers over sea's in india in order to be on the same page in terms of work that needs to be completed. in the work place you never stop learning because – more... theres always something new for you to do and you interact with so many people that theres always something new to learn which increases your skills all around. However, what makes the job so great is the people your work with day in and day out and the hardest part of the job is prioritizing and meeting the clients needs unconditionally. – less
Internal Client Service (Former Employee), Doha, Qatar – September 27, 2013
Pros: paid overtime, free dinner after 10pm
Cons: very short breaks or sometimes, need to sacrifice lunchtime for work
It's always busy work days, beating deadlines to the last minute. Working with them made me more competitive, learned to produce work output more than what is expected of me, and utilize more the skills I have. However, it seems that management failed to monitor their workforce particularly those that belongs to the support department. It was observed – more... that co-workers who belongs to upper level are more friendly than those who has lower positions. The hardest part of the job is serving several superiors at the same time and requiring me to produce all their needs at the same time after being informed that deadline is few minutes from now. I can consider the most enjoyable part of the job is when I successfully deliver all the work output needed on time and gathered good feedbacks from my superiors. – less
