    Time-off policies. 5 paid weeks off a year.
    Projects are exciting and challenging
    Co-workers are great and very good

    Cons

    Work-life balance, always on the road Monday- Thursday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management have a number of initiatives underway and they do a great job communicating those. At times though, it feels like what they are preaching is not really practiced on the projects

    I have been working at Deloitte for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn and grow as an individual in a face-paced environment. Great opportunity to build connections in the professional community.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. If you were to ensure a life outside of work, you paid for it in performance reviews and promotion salaries. They anticipate your work will be life, and that you will live for the sake of promoting Deloitte when they do little in return for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance. Respect your employees and respect that we all have live's outside of work.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Deloitte is without a doubt one of the best environments to enhance your skills and grow your career. The PTO policy is one of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    They expect a lot out of you. There is no free ride at Deloitte. At any given time, you have many masters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest enforcing the work/life balance instead of just promoting it throughout the company.

  7.  

    Poor work life balance, excellent variety of work and caliber of coworkers.

    Pros

    If you like to be challenged, fast paced, thinking on your feet. Excellent compensation and benefits; some autonomy over your work schedule.

    Cons

    Worked lots of weekends, away on travel four days of every week,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real option for telecommuting or balancing onsite client work with virtual teamwork as appropriate -- that's just silly in this day and age. Of course partners are going to want to do things the way they've always done them; and of course you are going to keep losing talent to better work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great reputation, salary and benefits, highly skilled and educated peers and challenging opportunities.

    Cons

    Flexible working mother only applies to certain groups and entities, the ability to work from home is limited if allowed, too many Partners/Principals/Directors on one's plate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring another person to support Partners/ Director/ Principals before promotions take place.

    Pros

    Opportunity abounds if you are good at what you do. In tax, they even encourage everyone to travel to the India office for 3 weeks to a couple months to work with co-workers in that location.

    Cons

    Everyone is very good, so some people just don't get the opportunities they would like.
