    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    You will touch a lot of different types of projects, ranging from individuals up to provision and consulting/proposals. They are always bringing new clients in so you always stay busy. If you find an advocate at the senior manager/ partner level then you will always get their work for better or worse.

    Cons

    Outside of a couple senior managers, management is either distant, don't know the answers to your questions, or unwilling to guide you. This means the role of manager, detail reviewer, substantive reviewer, and a lot of the times preparation falls on you. Which with the high turnover, most of my engagements were brand new to me. Turnover in experienced staff is and seniors is very high so no one below you is ever on the engagement for two years in a row. Unless it is a staff from India which you will essentially be preparing the project yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your seniors out. Don't make them manage a project when they are new on the engagement and have no team under them. And don't disappear for days because they are going to have questions. Also one word emails are never the best answer.

    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Engineer in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, 25 days off, various corporate perks. Senior engineering department is strong.

    Cons

    - Projects led by managers with little/no background in creative or digital work. Most come from suit & tie consulting backgrounds and have no idea what they're selling to clients

    - National creative director implementing "design then ship to India" for cheap engineering at Mumbai office

    - Projects selected on meeting profit margins rather than healthy, stimulating challenges

    - Recruitment blatantly hiring for numbers, not quality of employees

    - Observed many people leave out of boredom (sit on the bench for months) or pure frustration (not doing work they were told in interview)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring subpar talent & management. You're bleeding quality people because you're not giving people quality projects to grow on. Setting career goals as a mobile engineer (and other disciplines) is seemingly pointless because you're forcing people to work on HTML/front-end work and not bringing in mobile projects.

    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, higher than average caliber coworkers, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Work-life balance non-existent, projects frequently undersold forcing newer employees to work 7-day weeks, often 70+ hours to make up for the difference. The phrase "Well, we did all pick consulting" is used by upper management often to excuse all kinds of unreasonable work practices. Being in professional services means that you never get overtime, and you don't get bonuses either until you've been with the firm for a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some of the best talent in the world coming in, yet your business practices towards new hires show some of the most disdain I've seen in the consulting world. Your business is nearly 100% incompatible with living a life outside of work, either fix that or stop parroting about work life balance or you'll continue to see awful retention rates.

    Current Employee - Tax Manager  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Tax Manager in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    -Great benefits (5 weeks vacation, Health, Dental, etc)
    -Great resume builder
    -Advantages of having a large multi-national company and its resources
    -Paid CPE and CPA certification

    Cons

    - Very low pay compared to industry and other big 4
    - It is very difficult to have any life balance
    - Working with India; the Indian workers are "integrated" into the team and time and learning differences make it difficult to be efficient.
    - It didn't feel like anyone was actually leading this office in any one identifiable direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay competetive wages, re-think your India strategy, and REALLY make good on the promise of flexibility and balance. You have all of these awards, but I have yet to meet an employee who agrees with the ACTUAL treatment of the employees.

    Good place to learn, horrible work-life balance

    Former Employee - AERS Auditor  in  Denver, CO
    Former Employee - AERS Auditor in Denver, CO

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    - Great opportunities for promotion.
    - Company takes care of all your CPE on a yearly basis.
    - Bonus for passing the CPA exam.
    - Ability to work in different industries.

    Cons

    - Horrible work life balance: go from busy season (11 hour minimum work days) right into Q1 without a break.
    - Partners and managers always expect you to be ready and at your best, even when you're overworked.
    - Staff are at the mercy of the Senior, who usually "use and abuse" them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to treat employees better, especially since they are so overworked. Try to at least show some compassion towards employees, as we are all people and not just capital.

    Pros

    Deloitte has a great internal training and development plan. They focus a lot of time and effort on developing each consultants career.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a place where people that like "corporate america" thrive. You are not asked to do much and you can fly under the radar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to do more to make it an entrepreneurial company. It seems like everything is confined by red tape and processes.

    Current Employee - Consulting Director in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    It has to be the money, it can't be the people because we hire anyone who can touch the bar. The culture is good in good times and cut-throat in the not so good times. If you are short on revenue this year, watch out because the axe-man wields a sharp edge.

    Cons

    There are too many slacking and low revenue principals being carried around by their senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take yourselves less seriously, it's just consulting - you're not really changing the way our clients do business, they are. In the tough times, we look so hard in managing the bottom line that we overlook the opportunity to double-down on our investmest (people). Stop paying lip-service to training.
