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.
Lady LPN Senior ManagerTechnology
I worked for Deloitte for over 10 years and was a very senior Senior Manager. I made it through the birth of two children at Deloitte. I was up for Partner. As I thought about what it would take for me to go up for Partner, I realized that I didn't want to make the type of sacrifices required for me to achieve that level within the firm. The year I left, I worked the equivalent of 8 hours a day 360 days of the year. I worked weekends, nights, holidays. I worked on vacation. It was not the life I wanted - especially with two young children. I loved Deloitte because I was a driven and ambitious woman and it presented me with the ultimate client challenges; however, the more I put it all in perspective, the more I didn't want to give up all the time I would lose with my children. I took a new job in industry and I'm 100x happier. Time is the one thing that you can never get back.
Lady LongHours Manager
The work from home opportunities, generous-time off policy, culture of inclusion, and amazing people make Deloitte a great organization. While working here, I got an offer for another job with more money, and I resigned. Less than two years later I was back. The grass is definitely not greener on the other side. Deloitte has a lot of what we call "boomerangs", and that speaks volumes in my opinion. Yes, we work long hours and sometimes in highly stressful situations. However, the ability to take time off, work remotely from anywhere, even get to the supermarket in the afternoon, is a tremendous benefit. Please note that I work in a group that does not have external client responsibilities. I realize that when you are working on a client project or at a client site, options can be more limited.
