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

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Some flexibility to work from home occasionally. Lots of room for growth within the company and fair compensation.

    Cons

    Long hours, answering to multiple bosses (can be good or bad depending on who they are), expectation to be available at all times, pressure to meet certain client service hour goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show flexibility and concern for individual needs of employees and they will continue to be happy, loyal, and more productive.

    Current Employee - Consulting Director in Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Consulting Director in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    I didn't grow up in "big consulting" but can definitively attest that Deloitte Consulting offers a great first rung on the ladder for anyone interested in a career in business and/or aspires to apply to b-school. Not every project will be in a young consultant's perceived sweet spot, but the ability to cycle through dozens of companies and "fuzzy questions" in the course of 2-3 years is unparalleled. Consulting experience is also a fast-track to a top-tier b-school.

    Cons

    No doubt, consulting is a demanding and all-consuming job. The travel, hours, and pace can be extreme.

    Pros

    After experiencing what life at a mid-tier firm is life like, I better appreciate what a brand can do.

    Cons

    Some of the frustrations still exist, but still think it is a great place for me to continue to grow my career.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    -You learn alot (however if you do anything for 15 hours a day you are bound to learn something)
    -Good resume Builder
    -Work with intelligent people
    -You will not go hungry since they keep you well fed so you can keep working

    Cons

    -Busy season is a myth, it is no longer a 3 month period, its a minimum of 9 months depending on your clients and their year ends.
    -Absolutely no work life balance, and will severely restrict when you can take your PTO.
    -While individual partners are typically very friendly, management could not care less about you and will mandate terminations if their profitability drops below a certain level. This leaves those who are left to pick up the leftover work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to ensure equal distribution of workload among employees, rather than drowning some while others coast by.
