Over 10 years with the company
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 6, 2018
Your career will take off if you are willing to sign over your life to them. Deloitte publicizes how supportive they are of family leave, but it really starts at the partners you work with. Most partners you work with aren't supportive of you taking paid leave and look at it as if its a burden on themselves to cover you for your time out of the office, even after over 10 years of dedicated service. Hours are long, and turnover is high. At the end of the day, the work gets done, but at the expense of burning out. Ratings are unexplainable as a dot on a scatter plot. Training programs are very good, and if you find a good support team to mentor you, you should be OK. Just don't wait too late in your career to have a life, have kids, etc. because you will get penalized for not signing your life over to the partnership. It is more forgivable to have a life and kids earlier in your career. You work with very smart and motivated teams, happy hours and celebrations are elaborate unless there are budget restrictions. There are lots of opportunities to travel and own your career. It's just hard to have it all when they take it all out of you.
