    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    -- Invaluable learning opportunity to witness high-level operations and network with upper-level management at Fortune 500 companies

    -- Fast track to obtaining attest experience and the CPA

    -- Large corporate setting and availabiity of resources truly dictate the phrase "it's what you make if it"

    -- Work/Life balance can be satisfactory if you communicate your needs early on and continuously

    -- Considerable flexibility in vacation time and work hours during non-busy season time

    Cons

    --Non-busy season time has become scarce; employees regularly work 6 month busy seasons.

    -- Smart, competent employees leave the firm to find better opportunities; incompetent performers are the experienced employees left over to promote to leadership

    -- Relatively bad pay and opportunist culture of San Francisco result in the highest turnover of the best talent in the Deloitte SF office

    --Opportunities to jump on advanced and/or fitting assignments are limited by politics and inefficient, weak management philosophies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a lateral change in engagement management tactics for AERS' economic success. Clearly the approach now isn't working and everyone is leaving.

    Current Employee - Human Resources Senior Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've had the opportunity to work in multiple areas within Deloitte and as my interests (personal and professional) have changed, I've had the chance to move around into different roles while still progressing my career; very supportive managers that have been good role models personally and professionally

    Cons

    Must manage your own work / life balance - I've been supported by leadership in doing so, but it's something the employee must drive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on playing to people's strengths

    Pros

    80k out of school in 2012, nationwide travel, all the perks that come with traveling and the ability to expand your network exponentially

    Cons

    Limited client interaction during your first year, and sometimes it can feel as if you're not producing meaningful work. Hours vary tremendously between projects -- I have worked everything from 20 hour to 100 work weeks.
