    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Deloitte is a partnership. The culture and incentives of a partnership are very different from that of a corporate environment. You will be required to build the skills that will make you a business partner (communication, flexibility, diversity of thought and skills, planning, sales, engagement delivery). But it's also in every partners' best interest to grow more partners, so you'll find a mentoring/apprenticeship culture. The Firm has, in recent years, become even more aware and encouraging of work-life fit, though the experience varies greatly within the Firm.

    Cons

    Like many professional services firms, Deloitte will consume you if you allow it. Individuals who do not do well in setting and managing boundaries experience burn out, and there won't be many people (if anyone) to stop this from happening.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Deloitte are:

    1) Name recognition - The firm is recognized across the industry as producing top talent
    2) Training - Amazing training opportunities that are free and part of your required work throughout the year (PMP, LSS, ITIL, SCRUM, etc.)
    3) People - The people I work with constantly challenge me and create a unique competitive working environment that forces you to adapt and grow.

    Cons

    1) The hours can be long and if you are looking for a 9-5 job, Deloitte is not for you
    2) You are constantly competing against your colleagues at year end for ratings and bonuses. As you get higher in the firm, colleagues may stab you in the back to get new business and ensure their own success at your cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that the firm needs to examine the way they compensate people with clearances. They have finally recognized that compensation is necessary to retain top talent within the National Security Sector, however it still lags behind other firms in the amount awarded.

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

    Pros

    Of the big four consulting firms, Deloitte probably has the best culture, investment in your training, and support your professional growth, and even your work-life balance Benefits and perks are very competitive. I've met a number of people now who are exiting Booz Allen Hamilton for Deloitte. That says something. From a CEO perspective, the company is aggressive in its focus on competing in the marketplace, too.

    Cons

    The only con is that if yo u want to be a big-time manager or even just manage 5+ people, you may have to wait awhile. Deloitte is an awesome place to start a career, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work of treating your employees well!!!

    It is advisable if the work-life fit is given more thought. Better and relevant training of new staff. More insights into the business for all the employees, including Seniors and Consultants. More discussion on the available career paths to Partnership / Directorship.
