sr. manager (Former Employee), Dulles, VA – January 24, 2015
Pros: site i worked was close to home
Cons: management, business model, corporate culture
Deloitte consulting is run by people that don't know how to create work products that meet the needs of their customers. Most seem to be geared to promoting the type of work that can guarantee billable hours w/o delivering value to the customer and getting the customer to accept the charges.
Senior people will not want to work at Deloitte as there will be no opportunity for advancement as the ranks above them are already swollen. I would recommend smaller boutique consulting companies that give one the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with customers as opposed to pushing the hours like a law office,
Senior Consultant, Strategy and Operations (Current Employee), US – March 10, 2015
This is an excellent company to work for. I recommend everyone at some point in their career work in consulting. This experience helps one become well seasoned in dealing with different client situations, industries, projects and market eminence.

Accounting, Valuation & Analytics Consultant (Current Employee), Washington, DC – March 4, 2015
Pros: benefits, name recognition, trainings
Cons: disconnect from management, poor performance review process
Great company with great benefits but a huge disconnect between management and staff. Growth is linear and structured based on client hours and business development. Must be able to balance multiple tasks both internally and externally on a daily basis.
Team lead of SQL Server Database Services, ALTESS (Current Employee), Radford, VA – March 3, 2015
I serve as the SQL Server database team for a US Army hosting facility. My team installs and manages 35+ instances of SQL Server, most of which are clustered. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new technology.
Loved the atmosphere of Deloitte, it is a fast paced environment and kept me busy most of the time (loved that). I would arrive rather early and that was favored by all management that needed PowerPoint touchups, also printed and bound before their flights took off. Implemented and supervised a Service Center to support Senior Managers and Managers for the Irving office which leads to this Service Center as being the example on implementing Service Centers for all of Deloitte’s offices in the US. The customer service satisfaction rating was 84% over the national rating of 48%. The hardest part of my job was getting there I had a 70 mile journey there everyday. The most enjoyable was the fast paced environment and getting to know a lot of different cultures and people.
Consultant/Associate (Current Employee), Annapolis Junction – March 2, 2015
Been there for approximately 3 years and enjoy the people I work with. One of my job duties is to review over 50+ pages of financials. I review contract agreements and make sure the funding on the DO matches the funding on the TO. The hardest part of my job is updating the 50+ financial deliverable. The most enjoyable part of the job is reviewing the financials.

Senior Consultant, Enterprise Risk (Former Employee), Arlington, VA – February 24, 2015
Hardest part of the job is the fact that you never stop interviewing for a job here. To get onto a project or team every assignment is a new grueling sales pitch. Also you can get roped into a never ending cycle of constant travel -- all over the country. Tulsa is not fun for 3 months in winter.
Facilities/Hoteling Supervisor (Former Employee), McLean, VA – February 20, 2015
Pros: great connections and networking.
I enjoyed working with all the employees and it gave me a sense of purpose and family. My co-workers were awesome and very friendly people. The hardest part of the job was leaving at the end of the day sometimes I just wanted to keep working and the best part was the friendly atmosphere.
