    Pros

    Counseling Methodology. Performance base reviews. Have the ability to choose the work-life balance you want most of the time.

    Cons

    Experience with Deloitte is based on the client you are with. Clients can impact your happiness rating with your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure leadership continues to train consistent and effective leadership with an aggressive growth strategy.

    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.

    Pros

    Constantly being challenged, Great office space, very interesting and close knit peer group. the career progression is very transparant.

    Cons

    Too much politics. Upper management are to consume with meeting revenue targets and obtaining new clients rather than motivating fellow staff member. This contributes to very high turnover. Pay is mediocre.

    Pros

    good benefits, chance to meet and work with many smart people

    Cons

    Awful compensation, awful hours. The so called "life work balance" is non existent. Deloitte has one and one goal only: make money. Politics and favoritisms reign, and many PPDs are just useless. Very old style of doing business - from associate to senior managers, you are reminded every day on how replaceable you are and how deloitte is doing you a favor to give you a job. All this while you're on the road for 50-60 hrs per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid to hire PPDs that don't have consulting experience. Value and appreciate your employees instead of seeing them as a cost.

    Pros

    Good exposure to potential employers. I feel that auditors are pigeonholed however the contacts are great, and I can't wait to exploit exit opportunities

    Cons

    Long hours and terrible managers. The firm is moving in the right direction. I just feel like long term auditing is a tough gig

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more supportive of senior managers

    Pros

    great boss, very flexible schedule, able to take time off whenever needed, learning constantly, pro and con is the amount of responsibility you're given immediately

    Cons

    pay is not comparable for the work, during busy season we work 60+ hours a week, expected to do things without always being shown how to do it
