I’m actually wholly surprised when people are impressed that I work at Deloitte. This was a super easy job to get, most people here are majorly unimpressive and it’s altogether average. I know most of y’all on here already know that but if you’re stalking this app because you think D is cool, it’s not bro. It’s fine but it’s nothing special.

Privilege at its finest. Maybe it was easy for you due to your circumstances, but some people sacrifice a lot to get to where they are. I think you forgot all the schooling involved, debt, and part time jobs during school people hold to get here. I can already tell by this post you are insecure about your role and as a person, looking at others below you. Might want to get a reality check sooner rather than later lol

OP - getting into Deloitte is not hard (though you’re in GPS so it’s even easier - Deloitte monitor and many other groups are not as easy). BUT, succeeding at Deloitte, climbing the ladder, making PPMD and thereby unlocking a comfy upper middle class muscle is what’s hard. Yea it’s not big deal to get in but it’s hard to make partner where the carrot lies.

Think of big 4 like a large well known public university where you have many average folks but the ones that come out on top get the same jobs as as many in ivy league

In this bubble you have no idea what the real world is like.

I live in Ohio and when I tried to get off the road from McKinsey most HR here asked me what type of work they do.

I worked at Deloitte for many years and I'm well aware its diverse. I'm HCOL Californian, but these experiences were in MCOL Texas and LCOL Florida. So not sure how well versed outsiders are on the diversity in the firm. It's not about who's inside. It's about who outsiders think is inside.

As a former Deloittian and having also worked my way around most of the brand name firms over the course of my career, I'd go a step further and say OP's point holds true for consulting in general, not just Deloitte

likesmart

So true MD1.

I’ve been doing this for too many decades and it’s the same across all firms.

Low performers are weeded out. Top performers move on to greater things. And the middle is what remains.

likesmarthelpful

If you think people at Deloitte are unimpressive, move into industry. You will realize that even the “worst” performers are high performers comparatively.

D11 I kicked a Deloitte team off my project cause they were so shit lol (I've moved back to industry).

In fact the local Deloitte tech team hired all the worst people I was trying to get rid of from my old firm, and tried to sell them back to me in my industry role. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Don't agree at all. At my school, a non-target, non-ivy university, only four people in our year were offered for Consulting out of a few hundred applicants. OP probably went to Princeton and doesn't understand what the other 99% of the world is like. It took a lot to get my job. High GPA, leadership on campus, interview prep and false case studies and i still cant believe i got it (althought that was some years ago). Get some perspective. B4 and FAANG don't even LOOK for people at most universities.
