    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The company has the following things going for it:
    Prestigious
    Great People
    Good Benefits
    Excellent Learning Opportunities
    Defined Career Paths

    Cons

    The main cons for this company are as follows:
    Long Hours
    Lacks Flexibility
    Pay is not as great as in industry work

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on making the job more flexible as working remotely and adding flexibility to scheduling should be easy in the information age. There is also room for increasing pay especially for top performers as there doesn't appear to be much differentiation between average employees and above average employees.

    Pros

    Deloitte is a decent career boot camp to start. There are great benefits, training and other support available for all employees. Some partners really care and invest in their team.

    Cons

    It can be quite difficult to succeed if you do not have an effective champion in the partner ranks. Additionally, the partners are completely invested in internal politics and revenue grabs to the detriment of client service.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is not just color or gender, but bringing multiple points of view to the table. Additionally, ethics should not be a 'tick in the box' training to respond to the failures of partners, but should start with the top.

    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).
