Deloitte's poor management & culture is starting to wear on me. Prob some residual resentment at how layoffs were handled tbh. Has anyone left D for another Big 4 & care to share if grass is greener?

I'm ex Accenture. Same thing at all B4 really. I joined Slalom for rue culture and better pay... We do better work too. People care about the work vs. just money in the pipeline here. You don't get let go of you're on the bench either (unless you're bad and unstaffable), because they know that in. The near future, pipe will expand and they'll need you again. Worth a chat with Slalom. We're 20%+ ex Deloitte, 27%+ ex Accenture and so on and so forth from B4

The cultures are all roughly the same. They vary in ways that would be specific to those that know the other firms, but are the same to outsiders. K was much more about EE engagement and EE satisfaction focused than D, but didn't have to deal with scale that D does, either (still miss my summer gift and numerous encore awards). Don't forget D culture is far more insular than rest of B4 because they were never broken apart. Remainder are realigned puzzle pieces that had to redefine their culture after seeing forced "marriages" that failed miserably. At K, mgt consulting is more laid back because it isn't king of the castle. Deals is. Their culture is much closer to D Consulting - hours, expectations, etc. others may disagree, but my experience says satisfaction is more defined by team and project than by overall firm decisions.
