    They will teach you marketable skills, but don't expect them to let you manage your own career.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is good, training is good, promotions are clear-ish, overall you'll learn, but you'll want to get out after a year or two.

    Cons

    I've spent a considerable amount of time growing my network, building my expertise, and finding projects that match my skill set, interests, and benefit the firm. When it came down to it, however, and I was offered a fantastic project opportunity that management would not let me pursue. In order to succeed here and get where you want you need to screw people over and that simply doesn't match my values. I'm very disappointed with Deloitte because I believe that the firm and it's people have a lot of potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you tell us that we can 'manage our own career' then let us do that when the opportunities arise. Don't be a hypocrite and force your employees to work against one another in order to get ahead.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with top tier talent who cared about getting things right the first time. Advancement opportunities were available and encouraged. Excellent benefits package and vacation. Lots of programs for advancing women and networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be tough to stand out. Pressure to work long hours sometimes just for the sake of showing you can...not necessarily because it was required by the workload.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can't find much pros as the company culture is heavily changing to a particular south Asian country. It is a bizarre environment under the direction of current chief.

    Cons

    Long term degradation of an American enterprise. It is sad that you can circumvent hiring practices to favor one particular country and dilute branding.

    I would not want to be a part of this culture anymore. Ask the co levels and you will find out that they view Deloitte heading into the same direction as Accenture, IBM!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove and centralize hiring within proper geography or insert critical reviews to question talent search, on boarding and retention.

    Pros

    Great experiences, lots of training in soft skills, work with very smart, motivated professionals who are constantly trying to make themselves better. People very much care about their jobs and performing well, both for their client and themselves.

    Deloitte also cares a lot about their people and if you are passionate about something, they will allow you to do it.

    Cons

    Competitive teams. Sometimes more about who you know than anything else.
