    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Been in the firm for awhile now and it offers a great environment to grow in any dimension you are passionate about as long as you drive your career yourself and avoid doing just what comes. A sales driven culture that demands top notch execution, if you are not passionate about selling or fail at execution you are dead in the water here. The leadership team is great at driving the business forward and has continued to do a great job driving the firm forward.

    Cons

    It's a very exclusive culture where if your not one of them, your pretty much going to reach a ceiling quick. The firm does a great job running a sales and execution business but does a horrible job at everything else. Luckily, the partners and the engine they built are so good that the business continues to thrive just by closing big deals and executing on them successfully. They are trying hard to innovate and nurture a different culture they sense is coming but ultimately they don't get it. All innovation is top down driven, needs to look and feel the same as what the partnership has been comfortable doing for the last 10-20 years which filters out 80% of what innovation is about. The culture is still all network based (who you know and help is your currency) and if you look, speak and think differently you will stand out as an outcast despite how successful you may be. It's a partnership model that wants to build more of the same partners not more of something different and potentially better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really want to grow and be innovative, you need to figure out how to support and encourage diversity in thinking and acting. Great things happen because of diversity, the key is alignment so you can foster greater autonomy.

    - Not appreciated for the work done
    - Useless work to complete to meet compliance that doesn't add value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility in project / team / location - this has allowed me to travel extensively early when I could and wanted to, and stay local now when I have a family
    Investing in / acquiring market-leading capabilities (innovation, analytics, digital) to stay ahead of the market
    Has recently put greater emphasis on merit-based (as opposed to tenure-based) promotions and incentives - a lot more folks are being considered for mid-year milestones, and annual incentives have moved to a variable scale as opposed to fixed numbers based on ratings

    Cons

    Continues to lag the market in competitive pay, especially in Consulting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to significantly increase focus on top talent retention in a proactive and effective way (as opposed to negotiating once someone has another offer in hand)

    Pros

    The team is fantastic and the real reason I stay with the firm. I learn every day from friendly colleagues and get assigned to roles that stretch my skills.

    Cons

    8 hours is a short day, 10-12 is typical.
    Salaries are competitive with other consulting firms, but overall the pay is much lower than what you can make in industry.

    Improve compensation!

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

    Pros

    Fast career progression, exposure to a large depth of work, great opportunities to take more ownership
    Deloitte has opportunities for both strategic work and implementation. The combination of the two equips individuals with the right skillsets to succeed in the future.

    Cons

    Work = Life at Deloitte. However, with the multitude of great people, this can often be overlooked. Compensation is typically not in the form of Money. Deloitte will recognize and reward talented individuals with more work and new responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay can be more competitive
