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

    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.

    I worked at Deloitte (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 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

    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 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 (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.

  10. 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.
