    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.

    Current Employee - Tax Consultant I in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Gaining a lot of experience. Coworkers at my level are very fun to be around and are normal people I hang out with outside of work.

    Cons

    Direct management expects way too much out of staff. I am consistently assigned work above my pay grade and expected to work 60-80 hour weeks. During year-end close I worked 17 days straight and put in over 180 hours. No overtime compensation at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop beating your staff to death with work and maybe they would stay at your company for more than 3 years (when the pension fully vests). There is a reason you have retention problems - its because staff don't like their salaries to be abused.

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

    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
