    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

    Pros

    Can't think of one, oh they hired me. Worked there 5 years.

    Cons

    Full of discriminating folks especially in HR towards folks not in HR, you have to wonder how this happens. They do hire veterans but do not count on any assistance or understanding if you have a military related disability. Just a terrible place to work, do not believe all the hype they will feed you. You will regret it if you quit your current job to go there so please learn from my mistake and stay far away from them. Wish you the best of luck.

    Pros

    The people are intelligent, and you will learn a great deal in a very short amount of time. A wild ride that is quite enjoyable. Large company with awesome resources. Excellent to have on your resume.

    Cons

    You have to always cover your own behind, because that is top priority for everyone else. If its you or them, lets just say its going to be you.

    Pros

    Deloitte offers a number of benefits. In addition to an above board starting salary, Deloitte caters to an aggressive and outgoing professional. Along with a strong compensation and benefits package, Deloitte offers a number of continued education programs and provides its employee's with a healthy amount of extracurricular activities to build your own professional brand. Lot's of free professional perks, outings, and get togethers.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so you have to make a name for yourself. Office culture can be a little stubborn at time, but with a little socializing and networking you make your own career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to better its work-life fit model and not penalize employees who have earned PTO from taking it. Utilization is important, but it should not factor in holiday time or earned PTO.

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

    Pros

    Training (especially Deloitte University), employees have good backgrounds and are typically smart/work hard, Traveling is the best!

    Cons

    Management does not listen to employees, PTO is "given" to employees but no one is actually able to use it because it will affect your utilization, the Federal Arm of Deloitte needs a lot more work to be up to par with the Commercial Practice. Additionally, if you join the company with experience (and sometimes already a graduate degree in hand), you will not be compensated for all of that - Deloitte wants to mold you in their own way. That's why it is best to join as a new hire, right out of school!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all employees! They are the ones who make the company.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay. Great People. Collaborative work environment. The people at all levels of the firm are generally all amazing. Work hard play harder!!

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. The amount of work required outside of client work can be overwhelming. People often find themselves working when they get home or even weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate firm initiatives!!! Improve pay!!

    Pros

    The greatest thing about this company is the name recognition, benefits and access to training.

    Cons

    This company will do anything to steal you away from your employer including offering more money for fake
    Promises. This has been a traumatic experience for me. As a senior consultant I was expected to work 65-70 hrs a week. In my year end review the leadership suggested that I don't work work enough hours. There is no team continuity. It's a completion where you are competing aganist your own peers constantly causing more friction. The average duration at this company is 2 years and that's only because most sign a signing bonus and are locked for 2 years. Managers and seniors managers call you at 2-3am constantly. This company promotes flexibility.. But you spend 30
    Hours doing, proposals , business decelopement, dealing with your clients etc... I work on the federal
    Side. Deloitte is nothing but a
    Fraud as even when government
    Personnal get recruited over they leave after 4 months. My suggestion is to never work for this horrible company who does nothing but abuse
    You mentally and physically. Yea
    You make a descent salary but you're doing triple the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your business model and stop stealing people from companies with fake promises

    Pros

    Great place to meet high caliber professionals and learn a great deal - but only for the motivated individual. Nothing is handed to you so be prepared to create opportunities, align yourself with the people who will be 'in the room' during your evaluation, and go above and beyond to get noticed. Otherwise it's not for you.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on networking to staff people on projects - a bit hap hazard/ad-hoc approach to staffing once you are hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recently on-boarded individuals should be given some say on what project sectors or industries they are staffed on.
