    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Deloitte gives you a ton of experience and basically acts as a very intense training program for Business Analysts who are just out of college. You're given a lot of responsibility, and it'll give you a lot to put on a resume and to talk about in future interviews. For me, it really built my confidence because I had just about every potential problem and challenge thrown at me, and always managed to figure it out and come out the other end having learned something.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work-life balance. The culture is to work at your client's office 8:30 to 7 at minimum, and then to go back to your hotel and either continue client work, or do 'firm initiatives.' It completely burns you out, but the company doesn't care, because that's just their business model. They always have a new crop of BAs graduating from college and ready to replace those that have left because they can't take it anymore.

    Also, as a BA you have very little control over what project you get staffed on - you will basically get shipped off to wherever you are needed, regardless of your interests. And at the end of the day, most of the work is really just not that interesting - clients are paying us to do the work that their employees don't have time to do, and to put in tons of extra hours to get it done as close to perfectly as possible. Again, you learn a ton, but it's because you get so many impossible situations thrown at you that you have no choice but to figure a lot out as you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about retention of BAs. Most are extremely high performing, but are largely miserable, and only stay until they can find a better opportunity somewhere else.

    Pros

    Flat organization, lots of really smart, really great people, leadership is very personable, a ton of opportunities to join high-visibility projects, opportunities to lead.

    Cons

    The work-life balance here isn't the greatest (you work 40 hours some weeks, and 65+ other weeks), compensation structures is really frustrating, you don't have time to use all your vacation days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better base raises and focus less on bonuses.

    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.

    Pros

    Great firm & culture... great learning opportunity. firm invests heavily on employee development --i.e. DU (love the firm)

    Cons

    Not a strategy-house, now at one of the top 3 and see the difference.... also, a few bad seeds w/ chip on their shoulder play politics rather than focus on clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on middle management

    You are well paid for all the hard work that you put in. Great bunch of people - but work life balance is a major concern.

    Cons

    Could go up to extremely long hours - as bad as 100-120+ hours a week.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career.

    -You work with very talented people, and learn a lot in just a couple of years. The coaching and training I received were excellent.

    -Going Deloitte University was a wonderful and fun experience. DU is extremely nice and a great place to meet many Deloitte professionals.

    -If you wish to have a career in accounting or auditing I believe this is best company to be at.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, if you are a high performing individual you get rewarded by having more work giving to you. Most people leave after 2-3 years, and most people who worked after a year are not happy.
