I received an offer for 30k more than I’m making now at Deloitte for Cyber Risk.. what’s the main reason Advisory is a bad choice? Is a Senior Consultant role in this practice a bad place to be from a career growth perspective? I don’t understand the practice structure and am unsure if I’m being misled. I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅

Deloitte cyber is only in advisory so don’t worry about D Consulting vs D Advisory. D Cyber pays Consulting-like salaries. What business offering are you going for? I did implementation projects for IAM, but they do assessments too. I just moved to EY for a pay bump and everything here seems to be assessments, which is what I prefer. I actually turned down ACN’s offer bc I didn’t want to be stuck on year long implementations like I was at D

Thanks EY, that’s helpful insight. I like things to keep changing, so my main objective is to not be stuck doing the same thing. A mix of architecting and engineering would be the best.

I mean I was stuck on the same project for the majority of my 2 years there, so maybe that was just my experience. Your mileage may vary. I know D lost a LOT of cyber folks this September (raises) so you can definitely milk them if you’re in the right offering

Thanks everyone for the replies and input - I accepted the offer 😀. Looking forward to working with some of you soon.

Do not go to Advisory! Deloitte Consulting is fine, but Advisory is not a good place to be! I left ACN for Advisory, 30k bump in pay. Went back to ACN a year later. Took a pay cut to do so.

From the interviews and input here, it sounded like I would be working pretty closely with the consulting group and the engagements sounded similar to what I’ve been doing at ACN. The bump in pay is also pretty life changing for me, so I think it’s worth it for me to at least give it a shot.

What team would you be joining? There are different areas within Cyber Risk. We have people doing purely Assessments but we also have teams that do technical implementations Sc is the 3rd level

SC is the third level

Oh ya I forgot we changed that

Makes it confusing because i think everyone else has their third level as manager

I don’t think Advisory is a bad choice, that’s just where Deloitte places their cyber practice. You need to check what team you’re going to be joining because cyber is broad.

Thanks for the replies. It’s the cloud security practice - I went through a recruiter, but my understanding is that it’s cloud-agnostic.

Any chance you’d be willing to share the offer number?

A3 what level?

Wanna hook a brother up op? We got no raises and bonus avg 2% lol. Which were u in at ACN.

Everyone had this experience this year

You don’t have a choice for cyber at D. It only sits in Advisory so it’s not like there’s a pro or con. It’s a job.

Cloud infrastructure group is struggling hard right now because people are leaving in herds. There are some really good people in the group, but the turnover right now is unbelievable. But I am excited that you are joining and would like to congratulate on that!

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information.

Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
