Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone here is involved in Deloitte's CDD/M&A strategy practice. I am thinking about joining but would like a heads up from any insiders.

What is the culture like?

typical hours?

Are there peaks and troughs or are you working flat out from one project to the next?

What are the prospects for a movement elsewhere after a couple of years, or will you be pretty much labeled as a CDD person? Opinions from current and ex Deloitte Strat guys would be really welcome.

The hours are resonably variable, but are more than most of the rest of the strategy practice in Deloitte. The pay and prospects are exactly the same as strategy and the wider S&O and there is no more pay for working harder. The last year and a half has been very busy for the team and as a result people have mostly moved from one project to another with limited break. The partners have tried to make sure less people are consistently burned as a number of consultants at different levels were working to an unhealthy level. There are peaks and troughs and not surprisingly there is a trough at the moment with the uncertainty in the market and August in general which has been quiet. The culture is very much Deloitte which is a lot about making more money for the partners than the rest of the big 4 and by not paying particularly good bonuses in particular. If you are happy to work hard and are not too worried about the lower remuneration than PWC etc then it is a perfectly good place to work. Good bunch of people in general and work is reasonably interesting. In many ways it is less interesting for the more junior levels as the work can be pretty samey after a while even if the company does change and there is limited exposure to clients or company people at those levels.

In terms of prospects and moving, it is pretty much like most of the rest of Deloitte. The promotion is largely based on tenure and few people move much faster. Moves from the team to other teams have happened, but only a limited number. It is important to have an industry focus otherwise it is harder to make that move.

Overall it is a long hours culture with slightly below average pay but with a resonable bunch of people.
