Is Deloitte consulting more demanding than other Big 4 consulting arms? (Technology consulting specifically)

Worked at PwC before D. Short answer is yes, D is of a higher quality in consulting due to age of its practice (did not get rid after Enron) and acquisition of Monitor. As always, long answer is “it depends”

like

Yes in my experience but it is very similar to Accenture. It depends on how you define “demanding” but the practices tend to just be significantly more mature than the rest of the Big4.

Deloitte was definitely more demanding than Accenture, and also higher quality (at least in the groups I was in). Part of this is due to the 45 hour client billing, PRD work, firm initiatives, practice initiatives and local office initiatives. Plus all client deliverables at D go through a lot more reviews than what I experienced at A. I say this without bias given I worked at both (and am elsewhere now).

Agree with this.

Demanding is the wrong word. D has the most maturity and more capabilities than the other B4 combined, so they’d have higher expectations for technical competency. Clients make this job demanding - and all our firms serve tough clients.

I’d say it’s more demanding but less organised and professional. Work is probably higher quality. In contrast to Accenture, I find they are more organised and operate at a similar quality

How do you think a swap from MBB to big4 strategy would be viewed? Currently in a flagship office of an MBB and there is basically no strategy. There are 9 miserable cost outs / transformations / PMOs for every 1 borderline strategy case. The staffing lottery in my region means you almost always end up working 75 hours+ on some god forsaken project. Contrast that to what I hear about big 4 strategy: lower hours and more strategy exposure as the crappy projects go to the other MC departments

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE.

Honestly just looking to learn anything.
