    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    like a lot of large companies, there are plenty of perks for working here: company parties with free food & drinks, affiliations with retail outlets offering discounts for employees, etc.

    Cons

    work. you. like. a. dog. seriously, if you are starting out here, you are less than a dog. I've never had my worth DE-valued by an employer before like it was here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just because you don't have work/life balance, don't take it out on everyone else, or expect everyone else not to have it either.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers; volunteer events (Impact Day); firm values; firm's investment into their employees

    Cons

    salary, office poitics

    Many people take credit for work other people really did in order to advance in the company or to protect themselves from lay-offs.

    It doesn't matter if you 're a great employee or a poor employee. All that matters is that your manager thinks you're working (even if you spend 30 hours a week on Farmville). It's more important to spend 40 hours being friends with your manager than it is actually doing your job, especially if your manager is a PPD (Principal, Partner, Director)..

    Deloitte will not hesitate to fire you OVER THE PHONE despite a satisfactory performance review. Deloitte is trigger happy with the at-will employment option. Deloitte will shut down your account so you don't even have a chance to look for other opportunities with the firm or say good bye to friends.

    Deloitte does not want women in their 30s who may have babies. Even upon their return, many women are terminated after a year or not given any assignments so that they can be up for termination due to "performance issues" (e.g., you're utilization sucks even though it's because the person assigning you work is too busy travelling around the US to suck up to PPDs).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that people claiming credit for their work actually worked on it rather than just "project managing" (e.g., watching the progress of work product by others and being the first to claim credit or throw people under the bus).

    Make sure employees who do their job remain with the firm and employees who abuse the telecommuting are investigated and ferretted out.

    Former Employee - Consulting Manager  in  San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of training class offered for junior employees, very social environment. It's a great place for fresh graduates but not for experienced hires.

    Cons

    It's all about connections and who you know in the firm. How much have you contributed to the client success and the firm's bottom line is secondary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop politics.
