It has been a great place to work while raising my young kids. I work from home, part-time. It has been great for keeping my skills up, but there is very limited opportunities for advancement at this stage of the company's growth.

    I was a contractor workign for this company almost exclusively when I had my second child in 2008. I planned my time off and budgeted accordingly. I returned to work 4-6 weeks after my daughter was born.

Maternity leave is great, but they suck the life out of you when you’re working.

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).

  • Recommend to Women?

    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).

There are some very impressive women in leadership positions, however watch-out that at middle management it's often hard for women to juggle the job demands and life demands.

No women in leadership, no paid maternity leave. HR reports on gender pay parity for salaries, but not for bonuses, which can be over 20% of comp (if you get one!). This is a place where inequality can hide out and there is no transparency.

Many companies merged to form WTW, some had cultures that were more progressive than others. Strong I&D focus within the organziation, good flexibility and benefits, but still predominantly white-male in terms of leadership. Change is slow, but happening.

Fair amount of women in higher up management. Current CEO is female. If you want to "work as hard as a man" you'll get promoted at the same frequency!

    depends on your assigned client as to how much flexibility you have. I have worked on clients where I HAD to be on-site 5 days a week, and I've been on clients were I work from home 3 days a week
