sr. manager (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 24, 2015
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, Enterprise Risk Services (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 2, 2015
Public Accounting is the best place to start a career in Accounting/Finance. There is no comparison to the amount of knowledge gained during your tenure at a public accounting firm. The firm is dedicated to educating their personnel and providing unparalleled access to knowledge databases on anything and everything Accounting, Cyber Security, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc.
Although I was not at the firm long (2 years), and I would not be a good fit now, I am very grateful for my experiences and mostly for the network of great people that I still keep in contact with.

If not at your client's office testing, in the office drafting the reports based on the test results. It is a small office with only five employees. Learned to work with different kind of people and different kind of environment. Built my interpersonal and communication skills. Focus so much on time management was very important. Helpful and considerate co-workers. The hardest part of the job is to get your client to agree with your findings. The most enjoyable part of the job is going from one industry to another (auditing of different industries), meeting new people and networking.

Analyst (Current Employee) – Philadelphia – August 17, 2015
Deloitte is a good firm with competitive benefits and has a good brand. However it has many of the departments working in silos which makes it very difficult to move around. It can be a cutthroat environment coupled with the departments managed by incompetent people at first and second level management and above them are so far removed and out of touch they do not know what is going on. This setup for making it more difficult to move and to try something new.
Benefits, work schedule, strong firm
office politics, chronism, lack of leadership development, leadership and workforce is not diverse with minorites
Great Experience with Deloitte, Management Horrible!
Center Associate (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – August 17, 2015
I had a great experience with Deloitte. I was able to travel and experience some interesting environments. I was able to visit a friend for a wedding in a completely different state and work from his home at the same time.
They had a decent training program. Unfortunately, I had previous experience, and they wanted me to come onboard as an experienced developer rather than an entry-level developer. I had no support at all. Part of this was due to the fact that the center where I worked was closing down.
The management was too busy trying to advance their own careers than to support their developers with the problems they are confronted with.
Management Consultant (Current Employee) – New York – August 17, 2015
Both Pros and Cons are there. Pays good but again also compromises in time for personal life has to be made to balance the work need. Seniors in office are not very supportive but company policies support employees
