    Pros

    Young, fast paced environment with ample opportunity to learn and grow. Such a great place to own your career, set your parameters and develop a network. Smart people and endless resources. Great expense policy. Free meals, parking, mileage, coffee, professional dues, tuition.

    Cons

    The hours can become long, but you can work from anywhere. During busy season some people show up around 9am and work until 9pm, while others work 7-7pm depending on your preference. Of course, your schedule depends on the clients to which you're assigned.


  2. Very challenging work environment with not enough life balance.

    Pros

    Awesome travel perks and very flexible schedule on a macro scale. You can get a lot of vacation saved up and take a few months off occasionally if you want, because there isn't a specific job waiting for you - you just wait until you are between projects and can disappear.

    Cons

    Very not flexible on a micro-scale (day to day). Long work hours and occassional weekend work are not avoidable because you don't manage your own schedule, your manager, senior manager, partner, and ultimately the client does.

    Pros

    Great people, benefits, culture and leadership! Having such great coworkers and a culture of curiosity and improvement make for an amazing place to start a career.

    Cons

    Work life fit! Very difficult to be present at home when you're on the road every week. Even being a recent grad it's really difficult to stay connect and present at home while traveling EVERY week.


  6. Good place to be if you want some experience

    Pros

    Able to get exposure to a large variety of industries and also many different companies. Benefits are quite nice as well.

    Cons

    Work can be repetitive and at the same time reallocation is not as easy as I thought.

    Advice to Management

    For the new employees, give them more opportunities to try different practice. It will be better for the low turnover rate.

    Pros

    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 Management

    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

    Pros

    Strong experience building, good networking, travel perks (for consultants) and a lifetime of contacts to spread your network with upwardly mobile career-minded people.

    Cons

    Tough hours, work often comes home with you. Teaches you the tough parts of deadlines in the corporate world.

    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 Management

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