Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men

Madam TellItLikeItis Senior ManagerDTTL
I worked here for a year in the global technology department (DTTL) which was abusive and mostly mediocre. They constantly refer to themselves as "world class" and are the furthest thing imaginable from it. The leader of this department is mostly not seen and swans around the world doing very little and clearly believes that people are expendable and 10 a penny. When he deigns to show up at events which are mostly huge, expensive boondoggles, he usually stands in the hall or outside talking on the phone ignoring most of his staff until he's remained long enough to justify leaving. At last check the attrition rate was above 20%. People work through weekends and on marathon conference calls, top 'leadership' is not leadership at all but just the ones who have been there the longest and know where all the bodies are buried. They are almost all numb and burnt out but also ridiculously overpaid, so not going anywhere anytime soon. This department seems to be an eddy for burn outs and people who can't hack it anywhere else. It's not particularly sexist, but the culture overall is very "work 100 hours to prove your loyalty" that it's just ridiculous. Lots of weakness and abusive behavior in leadership. It's not a meritocracy and anyone who has anything going for them figures it out and gets out fast, or gets pushed out because they start pointing out what's not on the up and up at this place.

Deloitte is an awesome company first and foremost. But there is A LOT of red tape and politics that people don't ever talk about. People you "need to know", activities and projects you "need to work on", it gets exhausting. Everyone says find activities and projects here that make you happy and are personally fulfilling but if those things are not properly aligned to what the company deems valuable. . .you run the potential of getting dinged during your evaluations. Which of course affects your bonus, raises and promotions. Even with that being said I have NEVER learned soooo much and worked with so many amazing people in my life. I am a much better person as a result of my experience at Deloitte and if I ever leave the firm I know for a fact that I will be prepared for anything. Even with all the red tape and politics, Deloitte is a great company and for where I am right now in my career, there is NO BETTER place for me to be.

I've been with Deloitte for 1.5 years. At the lower levels, women and men seem equal but the higher you climb, the fewer women there are. Although the company preaches diversity and supporting women, the reality is that women have to find other female supporters and the upper echelons are full of white males. As a woman of color, I find it especially hard to network which, given the politics of a consulting firm, hurts my advancement in the firm despite high performance. Maternity (and paternity) leave is pretty generous and I know plenty of women who take it but leave taken is still counted toward utilization so taking maternity leave significantly impacts your year-end performance rating when you return. The firm is also very flexible with arranging local projects to limit travel for individuals with that need. Overall, I would say Deloitte is a great place to work for young singles and women with school-age children.
