WTH do advisory people do? Have some on my initiative work that can't make a slide to save their life... Lower hiring standards? Different skill set?

Different skill set focused on a different target client. They could be asking why you're spending so much time on slides.

@OP: you fix slides? That's cute. We run codes and do analysis on Tableau, R and Excel (many more for sure). We provide the content that you put on the slides. Happy?

I would phrase it as such. Consulting 'creates' shareholder value while Advisory 'protects' shareholder value. As Advisory only really works with larger Fortune-500-type clients, it could be argued that the protection of $X Billion in revenue can, at times, be more valuable then an initiative that either creates or saves $X Millions. As Deloitte doesn't do a great job of explaining this distinction at any point, I'd be interested in feedback on this interpretation as this is my best effort at it.

Ah I'm glad some of our consulting colleagues are living up to their snide, condescending, elitist reputation.

@NY1: that's exactly how one of the PPDs explained it to me and I agree. Having said that, we do strategy work as well. But mainly protecting value is what we focus on.

We make the customer feel comfortable. Advise them. Clients like advisory -people / change / organization / HRT consultants more than a nerdy tech geeks who can't get above numbers and details. Clients will remember us longer. And we will get paid more for doing less work. :) understand advisory work now? 😂

I don't see Advisory having a higher salaries...

PwC advisory is different. At Deloitte advisory is paid considerably less, recruited out of middle-tier schools rather than top, and basically does the bitch work where the three consulting arms do the "relationship selling"

Went from an ID sweatshop with a hard 200/month requirement at a 30 attorney firm to a coverage position at a 300 attorney full service firm. My hourly rate about doubled and the hourly requirement is about 145/month. Just want to say to all you ID guys that there is a way out. I actually beat out all the other candidates because I had so much experience doing everything as a new associate at ID because my firm just threw me into the wolves.
