    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very inclusive to new hires, especially to campus hires and interns who return. Lots of soft skill learning opportunities, event management and community involvement. If one can manage to get approvals, lots of vacation. Everyone I know has taken off at least 3 weeks an year apart from usual holidays

    Cons

    You can only grow with network allowing paper pushers to succeed. Quite difficult to switch industries and service lines. Trainings provided are mostly soft skills but not specialization in industry or tools

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible to your employees who want to learn new things

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Great Benefits; reasonable hours, cultural diversity. Many employees enjoy the style of management and ability to advance. There is a longevity to the community, with the average tenure at 5 years or so, many have been there much longer.

    Cons

    The service line teams are not valued compared to the active financial teams. Reception, mail, hoteling, facilities and AA's are expected to do more with less, reporting to more and more managers with less and less leadership. Although these teams have hefty responsibilities, they are still low priority for the firm compared to all others.

    More open to new candidates, not just who they recruited from school

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    6 weeks of vacation, pension, flexible work environment, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Terrible year end review process, poor communication in my department, constant efforts to reduce headcount (and hire in India)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open about your intentions, laying people off to hire 3 heads in India isn't always the best option.

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

    Pros

    You'll be in lots of situations where you have the ability to learn and take the lead.
    There is training available for certain jobs.
    There is an attempt to have work-life balance, but it's not really feasible in Deloitte's model.

    Cons

    Compensation is not reflective of the amount of effort or amount of time Deloitte takes from you. Compensation is not solely merit based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge people on their merits not on "the numbers."
