    Pros

    Deloitte Consulting provides a good platform to learn new things and engage in complex projects. Compared to the other big four accounting firms with consulting arms, Deloitte Consulting has a great brand and projects are generally interesting.

    Cons

    Partners and directors will often over scope, leading to subordinates to have to figure it out. This could be a pro, but often time, puts a lot of pressure. Internal work and practice development is more of a political game. Work life balance, regardless of what they say, doesn't really exist.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive growth and try harder to be innovative.

    Pros

    Great for resume building, excellent potential for upward movement in relatively short time (performance-based), as Deloitte is quick to lay off underperformers and places high emphasis on developing and retaining only the highest quality individuals.

    Cons

    Must be able to juggle numerous, often competing demands simultaneously with short-time to required completion and without sacrificing quality, and with this comes very long working hours (multiple days straight in certain circumstances).

    Advice to Management

    Great job so far, though I would recommend perhaps being less sensitive to GPA when evaluating entry-level support staff as GPA does not necessarily reflect on-the-job competence, general knowledge or ability to learn quickly; when too much emphasis is placed on nit picking, the entire firm/group is left understaffed and overworked, which often drives out the top performers who eventually burn out.

    Pros

    Great consulting firm to work for, if you fit in. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Being consulting company, heavy focus on relationship, networking, branding and sell rather than building capabilities and solving problems.
