    Work life balance is hard to manage with travel every week unless you get lucky on a local project.

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

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, mostly interesting clients, lots and lots of airline and hotel points etc.

    Cons

    Incredibly competitive ("up or out" based on bell-curve annual performance ratings) with a sink or swim sort of mentality - either you are in or you aren't. Client work PLUS internal projects (you have to bill hours to both) = really cruddy life/work balance. Aggressive management - you have to have bite to get above manager.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to develop skills, gain wide variety of experiences. PTO - 240 hours/year.

    Cons

    You need to become part of the the correct groups to get the best opportunities. Annual/mid-year review process is never-ending. Too many type-A.

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

    Pros

    Very diverse opportunities - the firm is playing in all major industries and functions and is well known and respected in the professional services space for down-to-earth approach, great work ethics and focus on successful execution. National staffing model allows to align with the team and function of your interest. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved in eminence or community efforts.

    Cons

    It may be difficult to navigate complexities of working in such a large firm (although I got plenty of support from colleagues in my office). Practitioners play significant role in driving their own careers, which means expectation of choosing a few focus areas and proactively building your network in these. It may be difficult at first, but works as a great training for any future career.

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

    Pros

    Work with fortune 500 companies. Deliver large scale, enterprise solutions. Very bright, committed individuals. The learning curve is steep but the experience is worth the challenge.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Unreasonable, overly-demanding partners. Bend over backwards for client requets/demands. Constant panic mode. Compensation is subpar compared to other firms. If your life is just to work then you may be suited for this type of consulting firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need to advise... they're trained to be this way.
