Consulting

So I was in Chicago (Lincoln Park) and I come across this really nice men's tailor. Decided to go in and see if I can get myself a suit - we started chatting and he was like oh you work for Deloitte..

That's nice - my wife works for PWC and I have a lot of clients from consulting firms. We had become a little paly and so he followed that up with what's wrong with folks at Deloitte? They always seem rude - is that how we're perceived?!?!

@OP My fam mentioned I’m “always in a hurry” and “can’t slow down” since I joined the firm

Yep. Even when y’all come to work for Pdubs. Even when recruiters try to bring me over. Condescending is the word I would use. Seems ubiquitous.

I distinctly remember a conversation I had with my roommate 6 years ago after attending a Deloitte campus recruiting event. The presenters had a “we are superior than any other firm” kind of vibe. Also once in a cab, the driver out of nowhere goes “you must work for KPMG.” Then he shared his impressions of the other big 4, and his thoughts on Deloitte were that people were rude and had big egos.

Applied to pretty much every consulting firm except Deloitte out of college because of this... when my brother worked there he advised me to consider another industry before considering Deloitte.
