    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Deloitte has a positive and collaborative culture, excellent perks, flexibility, benefits. I was respected and considered an expert in my field. I had many opportunities to move within the company and built a great set of skills.

    Cons

    My salary increases were not competitive and promotions were elusive. Sometimes leadership attempted to motive through negative means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advocate for those who report to you. Your staff makes huge sacrifices to make the leadership look good - be there for the staff to help them in their career.

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

    Pros

    Smart period; varied projects; great communities; lots of training opportunities; flexible work programs; Deloitte University; capable of providing great experience and connections; international deployments possible

    Cons

    Difficult to move around within the firm; work/life balance difficult to maintain and sometimes nonexistent; senior managers are not always looking out for their own team because they are more focused on pleasing other partners so that they can become partners themselves; if you are a consultant, there is constant travel; if you move to a more expensive place (ex: Oklahoma to New York City), they do not adjust your income for that move if it was voluntary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that compensation and transparency are huge issues that cause a good deal of unhappiness within the firm. The "black box" that is HR really needs to become more open with how they decide compensation pools and rankings.

    Pros

    The firm's overall total rewards package is outstanding. The people are great and you can learn a lot and grow. The firm invests in their top talent and provides wonderful training opportunities. Deloitte University is an amazing experience!

    Cons

    The culture of the firm seems to be shifting to focus more on the bottom line vs the people. Deloitte is a people business and in order to attract and retain their best talent they need to focus more on their people. The firm right now feels huge and it's hard to identify with the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on people and culture. Give the local offices more control to make the firm feel smaller.

    Current Employee - FAS Associate in Rosslyn, VA

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

    Pros

    Deloitte offers a number of benefits. In addition to an above board starting salary, Deloitte caters to an aggressive and outgoing professional. Along with a strong compensation and benefits package, Deloitte offers a number of continued education programs and provides its employee's with a healthy amount of extracurricular activities to build your own professional brand. Lot's of free professional perks, outings, and get togethers.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so you have to make a name for yourself. Office culture can be a little stubborn at time, but with a little socializing and networking you make your own career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to better its work-life fit model and not penalize employees who have earned PTO from taking it. Utilization is important, but it should not factor in holiday time or earned PTO.

    Former Employee - Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Deloitte offers excellent training and networking opportunities. You can meet the best and the brightest of the industry here and with the right attitude there is a great potential for growth. Even if Deloitte is not a long term career stop for you it still has a great brand value in the market (In the US as well as outside).

    Cons

    Work Life balance does not always work out, even though HR and the firm leadership do sponsor and advertise programs promoting a balance. Given that the organization is Projectized, depending on the project and client the level stress varies.
    Utilization plays a major part of your performance appraisal. If you do not meet your utilization target then other contributions dont matter much. If you meet your utilization targets then you need to have solid firm/people contributions to be eligible for higher YE ratings; which I agree with but in the long run can be exhausting since you get into an never ending rat race year after year.
