Perks and Programs

We asked Deloitte to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Deloitte University: This $300 million facility on what was formerly a 107-acre Texas ranch lets professionals train in style. Between classes, leadership forums and conference events, attendees can wander the running trails or work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center. During their downtime, classmates also gather at The Barn, which features gaming consoles, TVs and pool tables, or Bistro 375, a combination coffee shop-cocktail lounge.
  • Generous Paid Time Off: The average Deloitte professional receives 43 paid days off each year, which includes 13 firm holidays + paid time off that can be used for personal leave or vacation. A sabbatical program also offers a month of unpaid leave, or between three and six months of leave at 40 percent pay, with benefits, to pursue professional or personal goals.
  • Corporate Citizenship: Citizenship drives measurable change in our communities, inspires our actions as societal leaders, and instills great pride in knowing that what we do best – applying our skills and experience – accelerates positive, societal impact. Deloitte professionals are able to help drive positive impact in our communities in a variety of ways, such as our pro bono program, skills-based volunteering, board service, and our recently launched Social Impact service line.
  • A Range of Bonuses: Many Deloitte professionals receive performance bonuses as part of their compensation packages, but the majority of professionals are eligible for ad hoc bonuses. People going above and beyond in their jobs can receive Applause Awards of between $50 and $500, while winners of Outstanding Performance Awards can take home up to $5,000. Deloitte also offers bonuses for employee referrals worth up to $7,500.
  • Pension: In addition to the organization's contributions to professional 401K plans, Deloitte offers a rare defined-benefit pension plan that provides a guaranteed source of retirement income for vested participants.

How to Get Hired

We asked Deloitte for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

First and foremost, when we think about our organization, it’s about our people. Our people deliver measurable and enduring impact on behalf of our clients, communities and society, which makes us the leading professional services firm. So given this framework, we look for a broad range of skills and experiences in potential hires. We look for people who have the ability to lead in a fast-paced and performance-driven environment.   Other specific characteristics/skills we look for include:

-- Humble, likeable and down-to-earth, but confident

-- Professional, engaging, and charismatic; client-ready and credible

-- Good listener with mindful decision-making skills

-- Applicable industry skills and/or unique experience from a non-traditional background

-- Ambitious and entrepreneurial while working in a team-based environment

-- Demonstrated track record of exceptional leadership, as evidenced by roles in professional and extracurricular efforts

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Bring your authentic self to every interaction with our people. We look for people who share our values:

-- Ethical: Our people must be uncompromising in their values and insist that all of us exhibit the highest standard of integrity

-- Community citizens: professionals interested in continually making positive and meaningful differences in the communities in which we live and work

-- Inclusive: We celebrate and harness strength from diversity of all kinds — backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives — to the benefit of our clients and ourselves

-- Lifelong learners: We look for professionals who embrace lifelong learning and maintain an intellectual curiosity inside and outside of the workplace

-- Collaborative: We look for people who are comfortable being individual contributors, but who are also comfortable leading and working on diverse teams.

Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

Our interview process typically consists of three rounds for experienced candidates. The first two rounds are done on the phone, scheduled at a time convenient for the candidate. The first interview is a general assessment with the recruiter to ensure we have a match on the basics, including prior experience, communication skills, and career objectives.  If successful, the candidate will then move on to a phone interview with a practitioner from the business to do a deeper dive on previous experience and expertise.  Next, candidates are invited to interview in a Deloitte office with senior level practitioners. During this session, we assess core professional capabilities and continue to probe on subject matter expertise and analytical skills.   In preparation for the interview, we recommend getting to know more about our culture and people.  We offer a variety of ways to do this including our social channels on Facebook, Instagram, Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Yes! We are actively recruiting for all of our businesses, but an area of growth across our organization is definitely technology. As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, it translates into more technology skills needed across all our Deloitte businesses. We have a diverse set of needs ranging from technology strategy and project management roles to technical architect, development and integration roles to cyber security and technology risk roles.  We are also seeking out candidates with a variety of backgrounds in the analytics space.  Most of these roles require a minimum of two years of professional experience and increase from there, depending on the level of the position. While not an absolute requirement, some previous experience is often desirable. For people interested in our federal government practice, many of our positions require an active U.S. government clearance or eligibility to obtain a clearance.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

As one of the largest professional services organizations in the U.S., Deloitte offers rewarding careers that provide meaningful and challenging work assignments in our four client service businesses – audit, tax, consulting and advisory – as well as on our professional staff.  Whether you are transitioning from campus to career or looking to make a change as an experienced hire candidate, you can learn more about career opportunities and open needs on the Deloitte Careers website.   On the site, we have launched networking communities for military veterans and women pursuing careers in technology. The communities create a personalized recruiting experience that connects candidates to people inside Deloitte with similar career interests, addresses the questions of each individual job seeker and helps recruits understand what a Deloitte career looks like. The networks have been hugely successful and attracted nearly 1,500 members currently.
