    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.

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

    Pros

    Company culture - promotes working from home, and even allows this during busy season; Love my co-workers

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season; Evaluation system doesn't really allow differentiation between employees, so people are less motivation to work hard; Don't think we are compensated enough for all the hours we put in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the evaluation and goal hour system so that people who are efficient and work hard will be compensated, or else they will just leave

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

    Pros

    Compensation, Travel opportunities, Invest a lot in their people through training opportunities. Most of the people here are very bright and many have the "work hard; play hard" mentality.

    Cons

    Work life balance is almost non-existent due to the long hours and travel. The culture is focused on doing whatever it takes to get the job done and depending on the phase that could mean working 65+ hour weeks for a couple of months.
