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

    Pros

    Deloitte really cares about its employees and offers great benefits. I have enjoyed my time at Deloitte and have found my work extremely interesting. They work closely with you to make sure that you career is going in the direction that you want.

    Cons

    The only con is the amount of work you will be doing. However the vast amount of experience will pay off in the long run.

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

    Pros

    Inclusive culture & team environment (never feel left out of the group)
    No day is boring
    Surrounded by smart people who are willing to share their knowledge
    Paid vacation days
    Fitness subsidy

    Cons

    Not specific to Deloitte, but can burn out on client service (many treat you like garbage with little or no insight into why we need to update procedures to comply with PCAOB and internal inspections)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending annoying reminders to complete firm trainings (I know, I'm an adult, it is on my to-do list), especially during busy season

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

    Pros

    You career is in your hand and your input drives your advancement.

    Cons

    Not the best pay master.
    A big struggle to maintain work life balance as big emphasis on internal firm activities outside of normal working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    implement some of the great thoughtware on work / life balance. Nice in powerpoints but allow practitioners to book 40 hours and take PTO without being penalized during reviews.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful and easy to work with, you can move up relatively quickly, Great Resume builder, health and fitness subsidy

    Cons

    Work-life balance doesn't exist, ability to transfer between career paths is close to impossible, they under compensate their employees especially for the number of hours worked, for new hires they discriminate based off of what college you attended, very poor 401k match

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally, allow employees to choose which career path they want to take, increase compensation closer to the market average.

    Current Employee - Project Associate  in  Camp Hill, PA
    Current Employee - Project Associate in Camp Hill, PA

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

    Pros

    - Learn alot about current technologies
    - Hands on in all phases of the SDLC
    - Experience gives you a phenomenal resume
    - You have a lot of celebration dinners

    Cons

    - You never see friends or family
    - Have to work holidays (and do not get a bonus for it)
    - Project Associates do more than Consultants but get no credit or financial rewards
    - If you become good at something you are expected to work at all hours of the day to meet the projects needs
    - Baseline hours become 60 -70 hours a week
    - If you want a raise you have to threaten to quit or have a job offer
    - Attrition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Increase the pay of employees who work hard, have a high business/client value, and who fixed complex system issues.
    - Promote an environment where employees who are not travelers can see their friends and family regularly
    - Have bonuses for individuals who work holidays.
    - Listen to employees who are asking for more money.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Associate IV  in  Harrisburg, PA
    Current Employee - Associate IV in Harrisburg, PA

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

    Pros

    Signing Bonus: You get a decent signing bonus right out of college, but after the increased tax rate the bonus will be half of what you actually get. Overall, the pay is fairly low for the Associate model considering the hours which are expected without overtime pay.

    Benefits: The overall benefit Package is pretty good. The 401K could be better.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance: There isn't any. Deloitte calls it Work/Life Fit, because you would need a battering ram to fit all of the expectations into a 24 hour day.

    Compensation: It is really not competitive (for recent college grads) for the track you are in. It causes one of the following things to happen:
    1. You find a better job and move on.
    2. You are able to make the switch to the consulting model, where the salaries ranges are better.
    3. You have enough value, that you force them to pay you a competitive salary.

    Promotions: Promotion in your career and promotion on the project are two different things. You can run the project, yet still be at an entry level position in your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Simplify the process to switch tracks within the firm.
    2. Improve the compensation for the Associate model or Improve the work life balance.
    - You should not be expected to work like a consultant, but not be paid like it.
