    Pros

    - Exposure to working with high level / very accomplished individuals
    - Steep learning curve. There's always an opportunity to learn more
    - Promote from within, set promotion dates as long as you're performing well
    - Great benefits including great dental & a fitness subsidy that matches qualified expenses dollar for dollar up to $1K (you spend $20 on a gym membership, they cover half)
    - 25 days of PTO + holidays

    Cons

    - Can be very long hours at times
    - Steep learning curve (can be tough to keep up for some)
    - Commuting. Sometimes you can get placed on clients further away than you'd like
    - Pay could be better in the industry, but they're in line with other big 4.

    Advice to Management

    I think management could focus a little more on boosting morale during the times of long work hours. This could be done by offering sporting tickets (on a per-team level) for performance.

    Pros

    Deloitte normally has nice offices.

    Cons

    Deloitte is filled to the brim with sociopaths, and the higher the person is in the organization the more of a sociopath they will be. Deloitte is constantly lying to its clients because its does not care about what the right thing to do, all decision making is based upon maximizing revenue.

    Deloitte does not promote people who know how to implement projects, only those who can sell. Deloitte provides terrible value, and in every case where I follow them the system has been poorly configured, documentation is lacking, etc..

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to give, Deloitte thinks they know what they are doing when they are simply corrrupt and incompetent.
