Deloitte Consultant Review

Good on a resume, but will ruin your soul

Let me first say that I read reviews like I'm about to write below before I joined the firm. I thought they must have just been disgruntled. I have a history of excellent work prior to Deloitte and thought to myself these negative reviews can't be true. How naive I was... Pro: Great project experience for a resume and good money/benefits. And now everything else... Now lets get to what you'll be expected to do for that money and benefits. Expect poor management people skills working 70 hours a week, politics galore, unreasonable expectations. I've witnessed papers being thrown due to anger issues by senior leaders, berating of a project manager in front of others by a partner. Forget work/life balance (even though they preach that). Don't expect to take PTO, because you'll be on the "beach" (times when you are not on a project) at times and that will count against your utilization rate (more on that later). Don't expect positive feedback, everyone is stressed out and focused on issues rather than managing people correctly to motivate and train. Expect to rework a deliverable about 50 times because multiple hands in the pot. Expect your soul to be drained. On the plus side if you stick it out a year or two, you've get great experience you can take to industry. But expect your family to become distant and take a hit. It's an up or out company, so if you don't hit your utilization rate (which is basically how many billable hours you make) and on top of that contribute to firm projects (again taking you away from your life), you'll be be out.

Good place to be if you are a go-getter

Deloitte Consulting is a great place to start out your career IF you are 1) self-motivated 2) Comfortable with putting yourself out there. A lot of what determine's one's success in consulting is not just your performance but who you know in your network. Most of the time, it is about working smarter and not harder. Perceptions are held to a high standard and outweigh actual performance.

Pros

Great PTO (23 days to start and you accrue more as you get promoted), great people, lots of health/well-being/work from home subsidies

Cons

large range in pay bands and lack of transparency with salary decisions

Good Start to Career

Learned a lot working here with great benefits. Management was unimpressive. Good start to a new career if you can handle the hours. Work I was assigned too niche
