Deloitte is awful, in my opinion.
A website created for global consultancy Deloitte to quiz people on knowledge of hacking tactics has proven itself vulnerable to hacking. The site, found at the insecure non-HTTPS URL http://deloittehackeriq.com/, makes its YAML configuration file publicly accessible. And within the file, in cleartext, is the username and …
I would add that where there are competent staff they quickly attract the incompetents from other projects eager to escape their failures.
I have worked at places (crapita forexample ) where 3 competent were carrying 50+ deadweights who not only insisted upon adding their unnecessary costs to projects but also created at least 80% of the issues the 3 useful people had to deal with outside the projects.

Given any population and crucially, no matter how one selects the population, it has been found that 20% of that population are morons!
Thus, out of the "population of people with 197 IQ", *One in Five* will be a moron (corresponding well to my too long and rich experience working with "academia" and "management").
So deciphering this should be a piece of cake for ace Deloitte types:
Hacking? Not a problem!
And yet 'Management' will throw truck loads of money at these people rather than listen to the in-house advice. Show me a Consultancy that doesn't employ people with zero experience (but with a degree) and then trot along and tell you that they are worth £750 a day as "Junior Consultants", oh, and could you show them what to do as the Principle Consultant is busy on another job. There was a time when Consultants actually knew their stuff.
I worked at a company where, quite unexpectedly and completely unannounced, the owner decided to contract an "ergonomics" consultancy firm to observe, then provide advice, for improving our physical movements to conduct our jobs more efficiently. WTF? We couldn't have been more shocked if he had introduced a voodoo priestess.
So these numb-skulls who had no clue whatsoever about WHAT our jobs were much less whether we were physically moving about in the most efficient manner, milled around aimlessly for about a week, baffled the owner with bullshit, and claimed what I confidently assume was a princely sum for their expertise.
Whatever advice it was that they provided him with, it never made it back to us and everyone just proceeded as before. I have to admit it did make me wonder if I indeed was moving about as efficiently as possible though. At lunch, for example, I held my sandwich on both sides, with both hands IOW, while about to take a bite. Is that the most efficient use of handage? Or would one hand have sufficed? But note that I said "wondered", not "lost sleep over" :)
