    Pros

    - Great place to start your career - Strong emphasis on employee training and producing quality deliverables - Can specialize in key Industries if you want - Fun work environment with very smart people

    Cons

    - Somewhat linear career path with limited acceleration - Top heavy in certain departments (my department had more partners and senior managers than analysts / consultants) - Not as much support for middle management (Senior Consultants and Manager are responsible for sales and delivery) - Below average salary

    Advice to Management

    - Allow Consultants / Senior Consultants / Managers who want to support sales activity to be compensated for sales rather than just delivery (if they are interested in Sales) - Pay to keep strong employees

    Pros

    It is a nice place to work - good benefits and a good atmosphere. They reward effort and look to help you grow in areas you are interested in.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red-tape involved in getting things done and change is limited. There is also not much of a social element. Work-life balance is more like work-work balance

    Pros

    Best company I have worked for. They care about the market competitiveness of their practitioners and are fairly generous in investing on practitioner's skill sets.

    Cons

    Nothing I could think of for now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep the start up mindset and don't become like a mega size consulting enterprise.

    Pros

    Very smart people working alongside you Work with a wide variety of clients New office looks to be very nice and functional

    Cons

    Long hours, including having to work on weekends and late at night during busy season Poor pay compared to other entry level jobs Lots of politics come into play during year-end evaluations.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to prioritize their employees as these are their greatest assets. Try to have more events to boost morale rather than always hammering the bottom line.

    Pros

    Love the open culture, colleagues, team interaction, challenging work and continuous learning. Hours are a lot better than in other consulting companies.

    Cons

    My only complain is pay, which is subpar compared to tier 1 consulting companies. I guess that comes with the benefit of less hours and travel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Very flexible with time (but know how to manage your time), Great salary, Great Benefits, Great culture and team. I was pleasantly surprised from day one and keep getting awesome surprises everyday, no wonder Deloitte is #1 of The Big Four.

    Cons

    Seriously have not found any downfalls, I don't even consider it a job, because I love what I do! Others might see that working after hours or on weekends is a con, but I love it as that's the nature of the job and I also love what I do, so not a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, you clearly hire the right people and have the right practices in place!
