    Pros

    Deloitte believes that interns are some of the most important assets. It provides them with the top quality education and work experience. Each intern has a mentor, advisor, consular, and resources manager that spends some time with him/her at least once every 2 weeks to discuss work and learning progress and get some feedback to improve the internship experience for future interns. To future interns, I guarantee to you that you will leave Deloitte with a huge work and learning experience.

    Cons

    I have not notices cons while working for Deloitte as an intern.

    Pros

    Great culture, large focus on learning and development, people really care about each other and about you making the most of your career. You really "own" your career and can chart your path. A true meritocracy, with help IF you ask for it.

    Cons

    Extensive travel (even if clients are ok with virtual work, often legacy mindest persists re: being "on site" all of the time); smart people get pulled into everything, so the art of saying no to some things becomes critical. Hours can be brutal (leaders need to be better role models for flexibility, though the firm is really trying and there's strong support at the top to make this happen). Decision-making and risk-taking can be slow/conservative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work; sometimes be bolder/move faster.

    Pros

    Smart and young people, great mandatory and on the job training, benefits. DU is an awesome training facility.

    Cons

    Little work life balance during busy season, the structure is very hierarchal, compensation could be more competitive with opportunities outside of public accounting

    Advice to Management

    Consider finding ways to make work-life balance more of a focus by allowing employees more flexibility during busy season.

    Pros

    Learning opportunities are great and get great experience working with some of the best technologies in our field. Explore building world class solutions for our clients.

    Cons

    Pace of work can be a challenge for some, but firm is trying to address that by offering flexible work schedules on assignments. Also working in a matrices organization can be challenging for some who are not used to building their brand or network.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accessible and open regarding available assignments and career opportunities. Take a look at the salary structure as with the job market getting better, salaries will need to rise in order to retain talent as other less demanding jobs offering similar pay begin to be available.
