    Pros

    Decent salary, great benefits, ability to travel and build travel points, impressive professional versatility.

    Cons

    Unpredictable work projects - e.g. some engagements last weeks, or months; each employee is their own company (with their own brand etc) and greater emphasis is therefore placed on networking. If you're not good at networking, become an expert in a particular field or map out a systematic plan to network.

    Pros

    I worked for Deloitte for almost two years and enjoyed my time there, with excellent salary, They have very fair and complete ways of reviewing performance. I would be happy to return to work for this company if I had another opportunity to do so.

    Cons

    I was abruptly let go when unable to locate a project that matched my experience. I felt this was too sudden and further leeway could have been given.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee is unable to locate a project to be assigned to, give him or her a time limit to work with, and advise that after that limit is reached the person would be let go, rather than the first notice also being the final one before termination.

    Pros

    Benefits are very generous at Deloitte, from the 401k plan to the health benefits. I particularly like the the health and childcare flexible accounts and the $500 a year benefit toward employee fitness program.

    Cons

    Utilization is one of the most important and rigorous part of the employees' metrics. Although meeting the utilization standard can be easy, especially if you have a steady project, it can be a challenge if you are unable to get in a project. And more than often, the employee is responsible for finding another billable project, with minimal help from resource management.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to put a solid structure in place that really helps the employee find a new project after they roll of from one engagement.

    Pros

    Working at Deloitte is all full of learning professionalism and capacity building. Every assignment is a learning opportunity and every project is another chance to apply your lessons learned for improvement.

    Cons

    Relationship makes sense in a project driven organization to secure a job. There is a corporate learning system that keeps employees busy with mandatory training and tests.

    - If you don't like networking you won't go far - If you don't want to put the time in to learn, contribute to the company and travel you won't last - If you are not flexible and willing to stretch yourself you will think it is too much work

    Advice to Management

    Have people designate and specialize earlier in their careers so they can focus earlier on industry expertise. Value internal services and training offered more.
