Getting into Deloitte

New MYfP25
Nov 5, 2019 48 Comments

Just wondering what's best way of getting job at Deloitte. Are they looking for Ivy league education or big brands if from industry? Does applying online give same chance of landing interviews vs internal referral? How does it work if same role posted in multiple locations and each office so different? Appreciate any input. Thank you!

    I'd keep consulting in mind. There may be a broader array of opportunities that you're interested in there than in advisory.

    With that said, I've had a great time in Deloitte consulting. Lucky enough to end up with a good senior manager in GPS, so WLB is good, yet the work is intellectually stimulating and extremely impactful, though I'm paid quite a bit less than my commercial peers.
    Your time here will very much depend on your project, skills, and network.

      I do think it's in both. I know consulting has an RPA practice, primarily within Strategy And Analytics, Analytics and Cognitive (this is a talent group of personnel). IDK about what ops are in advisory, but I think they do some work with that.

      Consulting is the firm of Deloitte that does everything consulting, so it's very broad, from IT implementation and data science to strategy, with RPA work included.
      Deloitte Advisory is the firm that tends to have a flavor as something halfway in between audit and consulting. Hard to explain, since I don't work in it, but from the people I've met, it shows in the people they hire and the work they do.
      It's two different firms that do different things, but RPA is a skill that likely has a place in both .

      Is it easy to hop between practices ie from Advisory to Consulting, vice versa or to elsewhere for that matter or does that get tricky?

      No, definitely not easy. You need approval on both sides, which means you'll need to have one firm be willing to give you up and another firm be willing to take you. For the latter, you'll need to have proven yourself somehow, either by working on that firm's project (which is unlikely--why would advisory pay you to work for consulting?) and/ or networking/interviewing.

      Some people legit just reapply to the other firm rather than going through the bureaucracy.

      I'm assuming Consulting pays more than Advisory? If so, by how much?

      You're right, consulting does pay more than advisory. How much, idk---someone else will need to answer that for me.

      But it'll depend on whether you're GPS/commercial, and if you have experience, your skills and how much you can negotiate.

    This is in their Advisory practice/Controllership implementing RPA with 80%traveling. Job is posted for 12 major cities and I see very little interest on LinkedIn. Any insight - can i apply to same role in multiple locations?

    consulting is a separate LLP (think different company). you will not get in from audit/advisory/tax whatever. The real RPA work is in

    Consulting/S&A/A&C

    as somebody else said, and if you do get into S&A getting RPA work should be easy cause nobody in A&C wants to do it (source: I’m in A&C).

    The other people complaining are likely working out of a delivery center, not client facing, doing low level implementations, or are in some shitty group. I made six figures at D as an Analyst working with my FAANG client jr execs one-on-one. Worked ~60hrs/week, if that’s a lot for you then dont be a consultant. Period.

      S&A and A&C stand for?

      Strategy & Analytics. Analytics & Cognitive (the A half of S&A).

      Is the pay more in those areas ie under consulting embrealla than the other arm?

      Yes consulting pays more

      Thanks for all your input, very helpful to me. As much as I like to be in consulting, the roles I see open and from what I sense, they want people with more technology background and not people with traditional CPA serving in a functional role. Too bad there is this overlap between the firms, because I much rather be in consulting where there's better opportunities and higher pay.

    Internal ref is better than through online. Esp if they contact someone from the hiring group. That said hiring is slow right now

      Is it firm wide or just specific office and practice that is slow?
      Nov 6, 2019
    • Deloitte Fnbd34e
      Many practices are slow so it's fairly firm wide. There is hiring happening though.

    Travel sounds fun from the outside, but once you join and have to catch flight every week Monday morning 5 AM and travel back on Thursday, it becomes exhausting. Your lifestyle is ruined, most of the times you're in office, work hours are long, you're eating outside and you rarely have time to look after your health because you're traveling. As others have mentioned that it really depends on your project, but so far my experience has been bad. I am in consulting. I have met a couple of happy people in consulting too. Again, there are tradeoffs and it depends on what works for you.

      I can imagine: but do you think the knowledge, skills, exp and the D brand make it worthwhile if you just stuck it up for 2 yrs and then jump to private where more of WLB? What's the avg tenure there? People who stay at the D and live with this kind of lifestyle get promoted or get paid more$$?
