    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

    Interesting opportunities to build your resume, but time machismo is an issue

    • Work/Life Balance

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Associate in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Senior Associate in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Consistently named as a best place to launch your career (Newsweek)
    * Unique benefits like a fitness subsidy
    * Great colleagues
    * Brand recognition
    * Great training opportunities

    Cons

    Time machismo is an issue. Although we win awards for work/life balance programs, these programs are rarely implemented as intended. An example is Mass Career Customization, which was discontinued due to it not working well. Employees found that managers could not always deliver on the desired work profile (from home, ramped up to rev up promotion horizon, ramped down to meet family needs, etc.) due to client needs not meshing with employee desires.
