What is the typical team size a Deloitte Manager leads? I have about a year of experience leading a small team (3-5 people) and am at the Associate level at Booz Allen.

Would I be better suited for Deloitte SC or Manager level? I have 8 YOE total and 3 YOE in consulting. I have plenty of experience managing workstreams, just not a lot of people management. Not afraid of a challenge but also don't want to set myself up for failure if I'd be expected to jump in and manage 50+ person teams...

Definitely SC, though they'll try to bring you on as a C (and pay even less than BAH).


If not clear from my comment, D definitely pays more than BAH on the whole, but they will try to pay less, much less, if they can get away with it.


Could be 1-2, could be 15+... all depends on the type of work and how close you are to SM. SM managed revenue is $2.5M, so that’s very roughly 10-12 people.

Deloitte almost never hires at manager level. They want you to show that you can perform on manager level for a year before you are promoted. I know people with 10years of solid government experience and number of relevant certifications hired as SC.

You won’t get hired at manager level at Deloitte.

As was I.
5 years federal employee and then two years at KPMG at the senior consultant equivalent (I think the KPMG thing made them more comfortable).

Hi All,

Looking for some help with job referrals!

I am trying to get into policy/government affairs related roles, preferably remote jobs but open to relocating.

Thank you!

YOE: 3 years
Highest Degree: Masters


Thinking about applying to a fed consulting job. It doesn’t specify which security clearance I will need, but I will need one. My spouse works for a foreign company (here in US) that is listed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). She is not a citizen of that foreign country, but just works at this company in middle management. Is this an automatic disqualifier for me to get a security clearance?


Just a friendly reminder that this space is supposed to be HELPFUL and commenting rude and unhelpful comments on someone’s post accomplishes the opposite :)
