Cut throat- No. Competitive-Yes.

It's the expectation to do internal work that is "impactful"..don't play that game, you won't get good raises.

I hear it's brutal. Whenever I get together with bschool friends the Deloitte-ers are the most burned out

The culture and hierarchical ass kissing combined with the inability to truly trust anyone is unmatched. I can't wait to leave.

All about learning to play the game...each firm has their own set of rules. Just gotta know what they are.

Deloitte sucks ass. Can +1 all the anecdotes here. I know that management wouldn't hesitate to screw me if they needed to. (a la all the S&O layoffs last year)

Depends on who you work with, my group isn't competitive but the level of quality everyone expects is high. That in itself is hard to get used to when you first start.

Been here 7 years and love it. Have had some really rough spots but the firm has stepped up for me. This job isn't for everyone especially in the long haul and that is okay. I try to step back at least once a quarter and ask myself "what can I control at work to make sure I'm getting energy from this career?" "What can I control outside of work to make sure I'm refueling and fully engaged at work". Less alcohol? Tech free mornings on the weekends? Etc. I personally stay because I like being surrounded by bright, ambitious people. I've been in industry and that was just about too monotonous to me with an ambiguous end game.

Never felt that way... apparently some do though

Hi Fishes A bit off topic but relevant. Did anyone hear abt TekFog & Persistent Systems Limited ? Did they develop it ? What's going on ?

Does anyone has any insights into it beyond the company blog post claiming they are not involved. Also how is the work culture there, are these sort things even believable for such company ?
