If you’re a campus hire, what made you choose deloitte over other firms/b4 firms assuming you had other offers? You don’t get a bonus until you hit senior and tiny raises. I don’t think many other firms/big 4 do that right?

I liked the training we had (DU + boot camps - basically had a month of training when joining) that I thought would (and it did) help me jumpstart my career. Plus our internal tech + resources are top notch. On the flip side, I am actively looking to leave and have been getting very competitive offers that I can partially attribute to the baseline training and experience I got from Deloitte as a fresh grad.

EY and KPMG training historically is inferior. They tick a box but the effectiveness of Deloitte training was better. I had MINTO training out of undergrad, EY didn’t offer it till manager and it was a terrible training. Deloitte combined tech and functional training be it SAP, Oracle, etc, the other Big4 do not. Deloitte as a result tends to produce superior talent.

If you took d over PWC/EY bad move

Didn’t do D for sure. But we lost some due to perceived prestige. Though we get so many D joining us now days with loads of negative critiques of them. I am curious to see how the recruiting goes in future.

Chose Deloitte because I’m in human capital and Deloitte is top notch in that area

15 years ago, Deloitte’s starting salary was $6k higher than any other big4 or IBM, 3k higher than Accenture and the $6k signon bonus was paid over your first two years. Their training program was only rivaled by Accenture and no one else in Big4 was close. (The training center in Dallas was in the works)

Deloitte and Accenture continued to pay significantly more than EY and KPMG through 2012. PWC post acquisition of Booz, increased their comp to compete. Through 2015, Deloitte was still investing far more in training as well.

Joined D for tech consulting, the practice at the time was significantly larger and more successful than the other firms’ that I had offers from. The TC offer also eclipsed that of all the other offers (other big 4 included, variance was between $10k-$15k). In general I didn’t like the other big 4 firms during recruitment, most were unprepared and unorganized. It wasn’t a good look.

Is it a wise thing to ask the manager to give me onsite assurance in written so as to compensate for the CTC ?
