Okay company

Work life balance is sometimes possible, it depends on the project you're staffed on. You rarely get aligned to the projects that best match your skills unless you network with the right people. Salary in advisory could be better. The greater company culture may be different then the culture you experience on projects.


travel perks, bonuses/rewards, team outings


salary, hard to find "good" projects, people you work with can be good and can be bad

Fun place

Deloitte is a fun place to work especially on the GPS practice. Work life balance is great with a lot of interesting work. Smart people and some great benefits as well.

Fun work place

Great place to work for families, multiple project opportunities, resource manager is there to help you but you have to find project on your own by networking


Flexibility, 100% remote work, good recognition from project lead


Low pay at Delivery Centers, lots of politics within team.

Overall, a great place to work. You have a lot of opportunities to learn, network, and build a career. Wellbeing is valued a great deal.

Deloitte is great place to start off your career and build a strong diverse skill set. You have opportunities to build on soft and hard skills and learn many of the basics of how to tell a story and communicate to clients. employees have many opportunities to network and meet other professionals in their preferred field. Work is demanding and high quality of work products is a necessity, but well-being is still valued and many different avenues of support are offered.


Great work culture, Learning opportunities, Varied day to day work, Competitive compensation, Lots of PTO and wellbeing time


Poor retirement matching, Work can vary greatly depending on clients and managers

Great place initially

This can be a difficult culture to assimilate into when you join with years of experience. Feels like an inordinate focus on individual employee brand and network building over true team work and shared goals.

Unrealistic expectations with low pay

Deloitte is recognized as one the big four firms with a great reputation, however the company falls short of wanting to retain their talent. There are more cons than pros. You are expected to travel staying in hotels more than your home which is taxing on anyone who has a family making you a part -time parent and spouse at best. When you raise your concerns to your leadership team they pretend to care and make you feel like you should be grateful to be working for Deloitte as oppose to working with you. You will have constant travel along with tedious unrelated tasks to your job and no admin time to get assigned tasks completed. There are no bonuses offered to field consultants only managers which is disappointing considering all of the hours you put in for your client, yet the company sends out Regular updates on how they’re performing well in sales year over year growing their business. Seeing that Deloitte is doing so well and the team is not reaping any of those benefits is disappointing. You will get a salary of 50K with all the unreasonable demands that will have you question if you want to keep your job or your family this is a terrible feeling. At the salary being offered you can find that anywhere these days without any travel. Considering the job market now I would hope Deloitte starts listening to their employees to make positive changes otherwise they will be know as revolving door of talent who burnout every 6 months and looking for replacements constantly.


Per diem for meals when traveling, rental cars for field work, well-subsidy benefit, and reputable brand for resume


Salary, work-life balance, no bonus structure, no holiday incentive, extensive travel, unreasonable demands, poor leadership creating toxic culture

People are what make Deloitte

Very smart people and continuous learning. Emphasis on work life balance but does not always happen. Great benefits, PTO and culture. Do not want to leave.

Enjoy working with peers but definitely does not promote the best workplace culture

Although the company fosters a lot of community events, they could work on paying us better for the hours we work. Especially in consulting, there is really a sense of "client-first" at times, which the firm is working to fix, but still needs improvement


Workplace culture amongst peers


Long hours, compensation

Honest Review for Potential New Hires

I worked for Deloitte for over 4 years. Here is what you need to know about Deloitte:If you are looking to get experience and want various hands on opportunities in different technologies, this is a great place to start your career... But for those who have experience, You will ONLY get your title and compensation in the hiring processes. Do not look for it in raises or "promotions" . This is a place to get your experience and GET OUT.. Two years tops, then look for something else. Do NOT let Deloitte try and tell you you are part of the this or that, "build your brand" and try and lead you into staying. They will tell you how pivotal you are to the company, then when year end comes they try and give you the least amount possible.After seeing a young coworker become senior over me with only a quarter of the tenure I had, none of the certifications, and I was expected to teach her infrastructure, I had to make a decision and look else where. I understood what was going on. I did not fit into their DEI vision.In closing, get your experience, get your certifications, make Deloitte pay for them, and find another company. that is the best advise I can give you.. Dont waste your time like I did and many others did thinking you are apart of the culture or let them tell you you are valued. because take it from me, once you show them you got another higher offer somewhere else, they will toss you aside and not entertain matching it to keep you. You are replaceable here, if you keep that in mind you will have the right mind set for the company.

Great place to start your career

This is a great place to start and grow your career early on. The people are wonderful, and the breadth of projects are both amazing and meaningful. Consulting culture is difficult, and there's little WLB balance.

Depends on the team

Deloitte has a lot of great benefits and the people within the firm were really cool. Unfortunately for me, I experienced that in places outside of my Advisory practice. Upper management in my team was super toxic.

Great place to start a career - experiences may vary

Typical day of work: would go in to gov’t client and sit in a conference room all day. Partners don’t care about people, managers are over-worked. Really helps if you have a great team and mentor.


Expensed Starbucks, $500 health benefit, great younger workforce


Terrible hours, cut-throat coworkers, and politics

Not a great place to work

Management is not approachable. Only a few managers are great. Only people who butter up their managers gain promotions here. Hard work is not the way to go here. Only need to focus on your relations with your manager.Work is redundant. There is no focus on learning

Avoid if you can

I can only speak to human capital. Most people leave after 1-2 years here. The consulting lifestyle isn't for everyone and gets exhausting and old pretty quickly. We have something called "Deloitte Nice", which equates to people who are fake nice because performance metrics aren't clear. You're often placed in teams with people who are at the same level as you, you're expected to be a team player but at the end of the project and year, you're ranked against each other. All of this promotes back stabbing. The review process is not transparent - you won't get feedback for why someone was promoted over you even if your performance rating is the same - your coach presents you to a panel, who then goes into a room to decide your fate. It's all a popularity contest, so make sure you're in the running (aka the loudest) otherwise good luck moving up. Don't even get me started on diversity - 95% of the leaders in human capital are white. Yes, there are a few URG leaders, but they're not the ones hosting town halls, so you rarely see them - get what I mean? This place is toxic, it promotes those who are toxic, and leadership will feign ignorance or that they have no evidence of such things but the truth is, they're just not measuring it or willfully turning a blind eye. Hearing leadership's canned responses and shifting blame to practitioners "for not speaking up" has been exasperating in the COVID context - we don't speak up for fear of retaliation, which is done through our performance reviews. Your manager and will say you're doing great in your face and then say something different - 


Competitive salary - Deloitte will BUY YOU


You hold all the accountability - for performance convo, work hours, career growth, work-life balance
