    Pros

    Deloitte invests in their people, providing ample opportunity to enhance one's career through trainings, certifications, graduate assistance programs, internal firm contributions and client opportunities.

    Cons

    Compensation is competitive, but who would want more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall very satisfied. Work/Life balance is coming along. In the professional client service space it is hard to achieve a great work/life balance, but Deloitte is working on flexible work schedules and it is improving.

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

    Pros

    Deloitte is a partnership. The culture and incentives of a partnership are very different from that of a corporate environment. You will be required to build the skills that will make you a business partner (communication, flexibility, diversity of thought and skills, planning, sales, engagement delivery). But it's also in every partners' best interest to grow more partners, so you'll find a mentoring/apprenticeship culture. The Firm has, in recent years, become even more aware and encouraging of work-life fit, though the experience varies greatly within the Firm.

    Cons

    Like many professional services firms, Deloitte will consume you if you allow it. Individuals who do not do well in setting and managing boundaries experience burn out, and there won't be many people (if anyone) to stop this from happening.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will be on-boarded and have lots of information thrown at you.
    It is a very structured environment that will reward you in theory if you work very hard.
    There is a lot of networking opportunities and sense of community

    Cons

    Feedback can be hit or miss.
    You can work excessive hours and not be compensated for them.
    very little small margin of error
    Expectations are not always communicated well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to get to know who you are hiring and how to make employees feel less alienated

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company to grow and accelerate your career at. They offer competitive salary as well. Deloitte has a great promotion structure. You will get promoted every two-three years as long as you do what's required. Heavy emphasis on training and it's mandatory for all employees to attend Deloitte University in Texas.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to work 45-50 hours minimum. Most Consultants work well over 50 hours. Additionally, you are required to put in anywhere from 150-200 hours in to firm contributions (outside of client related work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from the firm contribution!!! This should be an optional thing just like it is with other Consulting firms.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, pay, and time-off. Leadership really cares about the development of the younger and entry level positions. Opportunity for advancement is based on a 2 year plan and is basically an automatic promotion. Training facility and learning experiences in Texas are unbeatable. Great young work environment as well and you can move projects easily if you are not happy with your current client. Work averages about 50 hours per week.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive and compared through rating system which reflects raises to colleagues in all aspects. Hard to keep up with client, firm, and proposal initiatives. If you are not from feeder schools i.e. Virginia Tech, UVA, JMU, etc. you will have trouble getting the major opportunities associated with the connections through alumni.

    Pros

    Abuntant opportunities within company and client engagements.

    Cons

    Large portion of performance review dependant on extra curricular. Evidence of a solid org culture, but pulls away from focus on client success at times - was my reason for leaving, to contribute more to client success without distraction

    Pros

    Deloitte doesn't focus on your title - you get more responsibility when you take it.

    Cons

    There is a large culture here for doing work outside of your project - "firm eminence" - that will hurt you if you don't participate. You need to spend 200+ extra hours a year working on proposals, white papers, etc.
