    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunity for networking, team building, etc. There was always a Happy Hour scheduled and meeting new people within your company was encouraged.
     - Looks great on the resume. Top company, recognizable name.
     - Don't really remember the entire benefits package, but the paid time-off was excellent, even for entry-level like me.

    Cons

    - Easy to get overlooked if you're not outgoing, Type-A, go-getter
     - They make sure you feel important and what you're doing is of value...the downside? Everyone (even those inputting data into a spreadsheet for HR) has an air of arrogance. And it's draining. Once you realize everyone's a cog in a machine and not really making a difference, the glamour fades. Which is why I left for Med School.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consider a way to appreciate you're Type-B personnel. They're usually the ones behind the scenes making sure stuff gets done.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant - Human Capital in Washington, DC

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

    Pros

    Deloitte has been and continues to be a true workplace of the future that, while asking a lot as any large organization or firm does, provides its employees with significant flexibility and predictability and a flat management structure that welcomes new ideas.

    Cons

    It's not always easy to move around internally or try new opportunities in other areas of the firm. It's best to come in knowing exactly what you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to try new areas, projects, networks, etc., especially high performers. Also more closely align compensation to the market.

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

    Pros

    The pro to working at Deloitte is the scope of projects and people. Also they really invested in training their consultants in innovative ways.

    Cons

    The cons focus around how hyper political some of the partners are. They can actually impede revenue growth through their need for control.

    Important to become valuable to the partner on a client engagement

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good news: While excellent performance is always helpful, the way to get ahead at Deloitte is to become valuable to the partner and client.
    If you get on the right project team, it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding.

    Cons

    Bad news: If you become too valuable in a specific role, you can find your advancement blocked by a partner or manager who doesn't want to lose you, so research how potential managers and partners treat their staff people before you commit to a project.
    Choose your starting place (function or practice) carefully, because it is very difficult to transfer internally between practices (Consulting to/from Audit/Risk) or major functions (Commercial to/from Federal)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reorganizing the firm and do a better job of vetting the very senior partners.

    Pros

    there are really great opportunities if you are self-driven

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve work-life balance and re-evaluate the usefulness of "firm activities" (especially in federal)
