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

    Pros

    A caring environment: personally, I have had a great experience with management actually caring for my well-being and giving me time to attend to personal matters.

    Cons

    It is a large organization with clear systems.

  3.  

    Great experiences - Laid back management - They trust in you so you should be good so long as you don't violate that tru

    Pros

    Deloitte provides great Exposure with the various client assignments you get
    Its a good Resume booster
    Offers Comparable compensation
    They pay for certifications

    Cons

    Work life balance may get challenging but it sometimes falls back on you on how to manage it
    Benefits are comparable but you take a slight hit for the perception that comes with working at Deloitte and job prospects in the future
    You may get tagged to a market offering that you are not interested in and probably loose some traction in your career progress by leaving it for what you like to do - Again, that's something that could be a personal choice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try as much as possible to rotate people to areas outside of their core market offering to enable them to continuously grow.

    Pros

    You work hard/long hours but you work in a great team that supports you. Deloitte provides lots of training opportunities and other ways to progress your career.

    Cons

    It is a consultancy so by nature you travel every week, Monday to Thursday. This can get tiring and your work/life balance can suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a solution for the 'road warrior' problem, e.g. let people rotate in working from home for one week at a time.

    Pros

    Great training ground for post college and MBA professionals
    Wide variety of project experiences and client interaction
    Excellent career opportunities frequently arise, internally and externally

    Cons

    Work/Life balance hard to maintain - though the company will make special arrangements when needed based on situations in your life - these come with no repercussions either
    Limited control on the types of clients you work with (initially) - eventually you can steer things in the directions you want, but have to earn that privilege

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

    Pros

    Great analyst program for undergrads, good way to acquire skills usable in several functions and industries. Compensation and benefits are very solid. Structured training program in place throughout the year to develop consulting and industry-specific skills.

    Cons

    People may not like the fact that you can't always choose your project, which means you may travel (even if you don't want to) or you may be local (even if you don't want to).

    Pros

    -Good compensation, lots of training material available and flexible working environment

    Cons

    -Being such a huge firm, management could give little more personal attention to their consultants. I worked their for 5 years and always had an above average performance review, but the offer they made when i was leaving was not even worth considering,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management could give little more personal attention to their consultants, especially considering we are the people generating revenue for them.
