Business Tech Analyst at Deloitte

Jul 12, 2019 14 Comments

Is it a good place for CS majors or entry-level programmers to go into if they want to get into management eventually? Got invited for interview for this role at Deloitte.

How is the TC for this role or similar roles with Deloitte or other Big 4? Any views on insight would be appreciated as I do not have much knowledge about these roles or these consulting companies.

    I started my career as a BTA at deloitte so i can speak to it. Your pay will be around 74K. Work load varoes between projects but yes can go upto 10 hours a day. I see 0 issue with that because i feel i learned 15 years worth of stuff in 5 years easily. The amount of variation on projects, clients, industries, type of work, technology you will experience is amazing. It prepares you really well for late stage of your career. The exposure to C suite folks, soft skills, ability to pick up new things in short time are all invaluable things i learned that now give me a massive edge over ithers in my industry job late in my career. At the start of your career focus on learning and building skills, in my opinion total comp is secondary. The only reason i would discourage you from it is if you do not lime traveling. It can be really brutal for folks to fly every single week and live in hotels. And is it a good ace for programmers? Nope, not if you want to code all your life. They mostly work on large packaged solutions and technologies. There is some amount of custom development but nothing to keep your skills sharp over a FANG company. If you want to get unto into management however, absolutely. It will make you fantastic and being able to tackle any problem that can come your way brcause of the diversity of problems you face at multiple clients and industries.

      Dont worry about total comp. This is my life philosophy weather you agree with it or not. Build a solid foundation. This is what will dictate weather you end up with a director or C suite level role later in your career or be stuck at a terminal mid level role for life. The doff in comp at such high level roles will easily negate any other incremental salary you might have made elsewhere. At deloitte or any consulting for that matter, yes start pay is low, but top performers can consistently bag 12-15% base increase and 12-15% bonus every year. This is all CASH btw, no RSU bullshit. Compound this over 10 years and it will become nuts.
      For your questions:
      1)levels are BTA->Consultant->Sr. Consultant->Manager->Sr. Manager->Partner/Director.
      2) See my comment on pay above
      3) on an average promotion is guaranteed every 2 years until manager if you do well, it start getting to 3-4 yrs after that and more at partner. I have seen somone go from analyst to.partner in 11 years, this is not a norm but exception. He was damn good.
      4) .net projects, jaba projects, a bit of web development as BTA. As consultant and higher i specialized in ecomm and content packages like Adobe and Hybris.

    Hey, I recently joined at PwC as a programmer. It really really really depends on the team, but generally speaking consulting firms aren't doing great in tech, however they fill a large gap in industry with their solutions.

    Your experience there will vary according to your manager and teammates.

    In Big 4, in tech, in most cases, as you're growing you are expected to do more sales rather than coding.

    Definitely consider joining, but before joining a team make sure you understamd what your role will be on a daily basis. Many times people there will use buzzwords such as machine learning, drones etc without really underatanding the technical aspects of that.

    Feel free to send me a pm if you need more info, and good luck :)

    I'd steer clear of entry level positions at consulting firms... Sweatshops

      Good question. I meant managing people and teams as opposed to products and projects

    Tech roles are good in Deloitte. They have Deloitte innovation where I have seen lots of developers doing amazing work.

    Been there. Couple pointers:
    1. You don’t learn any real skills.
    2. Earn less money.
    3. Lots of politics and shitty ratings
    4. To get good ratings, you need to slog a lot and end up with no social life

    If you have a chance at a better role. Take it. Learn some useful skills and then move into a management role as you grow up your ladder

    Nobody likes a manager who doesn’t know how anything works.

    BTA roles vary ALOT. But generally you will not use or grow CS skills. At all. You'll mostly live in meetings, outlook and PowerPoint

    Business tech analyst roles are dead ends, definitely not good places for CS grads
