    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Deloitte has a great culture - very collaborative and diverse. The size also means that Deloitte does everything - you just have to network and find the right people. Our brand also gives us the opportunity to work with some great companies on their toughest business problems.

    Cons

    Deloitte asks a lot - work life balance is still not a great fit. Also, unless you are brought on directly from school the comp and ben is not what it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Management should make sure that they practice what they preach. If we are all about our social values to retain the best talent, then everyone should be able to take those opportunities when they come along.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Bright colleagues with a passion for excellence - Room to grow if you are able to perform at a high level - Flexibility to take your career in many directions (though mostly within the existing opportunity set) - Opportunity to experience many different projects in a relatively short period of time - Access to brilliant experts in most any field - Very strong corps of Managers and Senior Consultants - Growing diversity among senior leadership (at least gender diversity)

    Cons

    - Bureaucratic processes - Risk averse culture - Way too much fluff in "Firm Initiatives" - Still a strong emphasis on "How Many Hours Did You Put In?" despite messaging to the contrary

    Advice to Management

    - Increase the focus on client delivery. That does not mean passive execution. Rather, we should redirect the energy we put into fluff firm initiatives towards innovating for clients and spreading that knowledge throughout the firm. - Get serious about reducing the emphasis on number/hours put into firm initiatives. Consensus panels are still harping on it. It is foolish to burn good people out on meaningless "contributions." Expect excellence where it matters - driving our business towards advantaged capabilities and positions.

    Pros

    Diverse challenges and high expectations for performance; excellent coworkers with interesting backgrounds; and involvement in designing cutting edge business solutions

    Cons

    The job requires a lot of travel and time away from home, which makes it difficult to maintain a high quality of life; each project team is also different, so there is a continual process of improving team performance and adjusting to new workstyles

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pursue the company's strategic vision and hire top-quality people

    Pros

    -Extremely intelligent colleagues -Interesting and challenging projects where you will continue to learn and grow -Leadership that truly cares about you -Numerous stretch roles and opportunities that many don't get early on in their careers -Great training opportunities (Deloitte University, local learning)

    Cons

    -20% of the people do 80% of the work outside of client work -Heavy emphasis on firm activities and business development -Despite preaching work life fit, it's not a reality for many (the 20-25% who lead firm activities and BD work)

    Advice to Management

    Reward your highest performers, not just in salary/bonus but with unique training opportunities and other recognition.
