    Pros

    Firm reputation, training, company values, and exposure to high caliber clients are all positive reasons to join this firm. The hours can be a little long during busy season but the experience is worth it!

    Cons

    This environment may seem somewhat restrictive to those who want to run their own business. If you don't mind the regimented environment and the years to achieve your goal of becoming a partner it is a great place to build a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Great firm for gaining experience and contacts.

    Pros

    I found the consulting world great and the access to education and activities outstanding. The overall challenge was great

    Cons

    The major issue is that there was a lot of red tape around you as your career growth. Also, I think the way you start the project search needs to be completely reworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A revamp of the model of how things get done from an individual perspective needs to be addressed as well as looking at the group.

    Pros

    Wonderful Benefits
    Great People
    Latest Technology
    Flexible
    Great work/life balance

    Cons

    I'm in a support role and I'm pretty sure they've worked hard to keep our salaries low over the years. The 1% raises aren't cutting it anymore.
    No upward mobility in my role.
    Lack of opportunity to branch off into other areas of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There really needs to be more opportunities to grow into roles with better pay, higher title, and more responsibility. The rating system is also unfair and antiquated. A rating system that's not based on performance is senseless. To set goals your employees aren't given an opportunity to reach is also unfair and senseless.

    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.
