Anyone got the latest on (1) how things are working out at Deloitte Consulting's Strat & Ops practice and (2) pros & cons of the practice versus other strat practices?

Thanks for your views:good to hear that the partners are energetic. Hope it works out well for you. They seems to be recruiting very heavily at the moment - are people there busy? Is there an emphasis on a particular area of work (e.g. strat vs. ops)?

Deloitte has heaved up its recruitment of Techies, whilst not so much on the strat side. Pure strat work is rare - Deloittes business is heavily systems based. It is a leader in TMT (Telecoms, media)eg BBC BSkyB and public sector projects (MOD, TFL). The people are truly genuine, fun and NORMAL. That beats Mckinsey anyday. BUT promotion is tough and its galling seeing people with less experience being poached to manager level. It all depends on timing and circumstance. The future looks bright though certainly for the next year. Training is second to none also

Anyone have any insight into DC's CIO Advisory division? Does work involve actively working with client's CIO on overall IT strats? I've been shortlisted for a positon there based on my previous interviews with them and would appreciate any comments.

Thanks Christina - very helpful. Agree with your comments re McKinsey! Wasn't aware that the Strat & Ops side was so techie biased, but have heard very good things about how DC has turned the corner in recent times.

strat and ops is actually part of the same capability - it is then broken down further into 3 competencies; strat, finance and operations. as cristina mentions, work on the pure strat side is relatively light whereas the pipeline for work falling under the finance umbrella is growing massively. they have major finance and risk engagements with some pretty big banks but the focus is more on the tech than on the business side. however, i think that they are actively seeking to compliment their tech savvy with some business nous given the profile of recent recruits such as myself. however, the great thing is that the partners are not too possessive ie, you can work throughout all capabilities and competencies as long as you are willing to push for it. incidentally, what is your current situation and are you interviewing with dels?

thats a good point and i think the positive momentum is likely to continue. there are some fairly driven partners who were only just accepted so the onus is on them to drive business and that means more chargeability potential.

Hey S,

I was just wondering what level you're interviewing on (consultant/manager/?), and where. I'm currently a C1 at ACN London, and am really interested to hear about the division you mentioned. So all you DC insiders out there, we'd appreciate any clarification on the matter! Cheers, J.

Hi johnnie,

I think they're looking at Senior manager level, although there have yet to be any concrete discussions with regards to level. I used to work with Accenture as well. Left during the dot com boom a few years ago, and rode the roller coster ride, and now looking to get back into a meaty consulting role and hopefully make director in a few years time. Best of luck with whatever you do, and although Accenture has changed somewhat since my days, there aren't many better places that will provide you with better opportunities. S
