Poor insight and leadership at partner level made clients and most talented individuals in federal HIT practice miserable
Pros: Some great people to work with, great emotional support from my client
Cons: Having to commute 3 hours a day to sit at a desk and talk on the phone
I was chronically overworked, required to "eat" hours (on a federal contract), and pressured to have jr business analysts do work they could barely discuss, let alone provide quality work for our government client.
Work the client requested which could have been transformational was never turned over to them, as it was deemed "out of scope" of the fixed price contract by management.
While styling itself as a healthcare IT leader, only the private sector arm had meaningful success, primarily with installation of EHRS at large medical centers.
I did have an opportunity to work with several other comparably expert individuals of high caliber and integrity. Few, if any, still remain with Deloitte after just a few years, and nearly all cite comparable reasons for leaving.
