    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and career-building options; smart, hard-working colleagues; interesting work that requires creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit rules the culture

    Cons

    They are trying but work-life balance is a struggle at times - especially given the travel requirements; again, they are trying but the performance management system communicates the firm only cares about the top 20% of employees - as defined by their standards of 'top'

    Advice to Management

    Level the playing field a bit

    Pros

    Deloitte has great people and great benefits. The experience that you gain is extremely invaluable and you take this skill anywhere you'd like after you are done.

    Cons

    There are lots of hours involved as is true for public accounting but that is the nature. Do not use that as a knock again TV is.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the management is doing s fine job and the firm could not survive without the expertise that exists within the firm

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Many opportunities to try new things or switch market offerings or industries. Many professional development programs for high performing professionals.

    Cons

    Difficult for minorities and women to get ahead - hard to find sponsors - work-life balance is a huge challenge at all level, but especially the Manager level. While many programs are available for advancement and professional development, all are geared towards high performer, leaving out those that may actually need true development opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Focus should be on not just high-performers but also those mid-range performers that could also be high performers if a little support was provided.
