A great company in many ways but still very much a club where the women who are promoted act like men and the male partners have mostly have stay-at-home spouses.

Manager

*** This review is for the Consulting side of Deloitte, for a client-facing role. Deloitte is a very big organization and they have other positions and member firms like Audit, Tax, etc. which are different * The Good: Amazing parental leave policy, possibly the best in the job market. Money can be good at the undergrad or MBA level. If you just got an MBA and got recruited at Deloitte, you will earn $145+ plus sign-on bonus as a SC, if you are just out of undergrad you get about $70+ as a BA * The Bad: If you are on the client-facing side of the business of Consulting, you have to travel 100%. There is no way around it. Hours can be really bad, at a minimum you are supposed to work 45 *billable* hours. Which means that realistically you end up working a minimum of 60 hours to bill 45, and that's on a good week. Working on weekends and holidays is very often the case. * The Ugly: If you are pregnant and traveling, you get NO break for traveling. I cannot tell you how many of my friends have LOST their babies or delivered excessively early because of the excessive travel. I asked not to travel during the later stages of my pregnancy and my hand got slapped and I didn't get a good bonus or a promotion. In addition, Deloitte is very tribal. It's all about your network. Partners and senior managers always work with the same people and very rarely get new people to work with them. If you are a new comer, you better start networking like crazy. And even if you network, it's really hard to get traction because they don't know you, therefore you don't get staffed in the cool projects. They have resource managers that "match" consultants on the bench with open projects but most of those projects are the ones that nobody wanted or with terrible senior managers with whom nobody wanted to work. * The Very Ugly: Deloitte is a place where you have to toe the line carefully or you are out. There is no space for diversity of thought. Either you comply and do what they ask you to do the way they want it, or you don't advance in the firm. Men still rule Deloitte, even if we have a woman CEO. There are very few women at the Partner level and most of them don't have kids or their kids are step kids and a lot of them have stay at home husbands. The women partners with kids earn less money most of the time. Most if not all partners are very greedy. They only care about their compensation regardless of how many people get burned out, or damaged on their way to excellent project delivery. On the flip side, if you want money and don't care about your family and being nasty to your subordinates, this is the place for you!

It depends on your leadership in that department on how successful you will be. Sourcing and recruiting is a different area than the technical positions with the company. There are some positions with little travel and some that are 100% travel. The more you travel the higher the pay.

    The company is flexible in many of their roles with sourcing and recruiting. However, some of their technical roles are inflexible for those with young children and require over 50% travel.

    This seems to be a focus of this survey. This was not a concern for me or throughout my career.

    I am no longer there. Remove the bias that men understand technology better. Remember that when other employees are more competitive than collaborative they may seek to injure another person's reputation within the company. Look at the numbers rather than bias. Improve your communications with people. Avoid confusion by ensuring you are communicating effectively with your staff. Encourage knowledge sharing and discourage aggressive competitiveness.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Only if in a direct technology role and only in the delivery centers. If in a technical sourcing role ironically, men are seen as the experts on sourcing technical candidates even if the woman is sourcing well (helping fill positions) and holds technical certifications for software development.

There are great policies being rolled out, but the ability to fully utilize them is often based on your client workload and the local partner group's view of the policies.

IT

January 1970

If you are Indian or Asian you will do well here most likely. The more technical IT roles are really reserved for this group, and mostly men unfortunately. Although the CEO supports gender diversity, and you get emails about inclusion and what not, it really comes down to the people you are working with on a day to day basis and the people in the practice you support, doesn’t it. Deloitte has a long way to go to get women in leadership in their Advisory Cyber Risk Services practice who come from a technical background. I’ve found they have a few women in leadership roles but these women don’t understand technology and because there are so few of them, they discount women below them who aren’t like them (such as a technical woman). It’s sad that the culture hasn’t changed much in the 5 years I’ve been with them. I think there is a leadership problem with the men throughout Cyber Risk.

    It depends largely on whether or not you are staffed on a project and how demanding that client is/how many hours you are willing to work. People are successful here if they work like dogs on not only client work but something called Practice Development (PRD) which is completed outside client work hours (includes proposal work, internal initiatives, etc.). Someone once said to me after 5pm (when the client had left the office) that now the real work begins. You can work all the time here and you shouldn’t expect to go very high on the ladder here unless you want to work like a slave all the time. It’s really bad work life balance here (coming from the Advisory > Cyber Risk practice).

    Maybe. If the role traditionally supports women then it will be a much better experience than if you join a part of Deloitte which traditionally supports men. From my own experience working in Cyber Risk (Cyber Security), more specifically within Identity & Access Management, most of the leadership is of Indian/Asian origin and typically made up of men. I am a white female with a Computer Engineering background and it was very tough getting staffed on technical implementation work and staying in that work, largely due to the lack of support from senior leadership in this area. I got promoted while I was there and it was hell going through that promotion while I noticed it was much easier for the Indian men. They like to work together and will talk about you in their own language even. They will discount you off the bat I think if you are a white female and assume you are not very technical. Deloitte has a Women’s Initiative (WIN) but it’s all smoke and mirrors. The bottom line is it’s hard to get support to do technical work here as a female, and especially as a white female. It’s even harder to get promoted in Cyber Risk due to many reasons like lack of technical support in your career early on (you will be less prepared moving up the ladder as management and above in Cyber Risk typically only respects those who are more technical).
