    Pros

    Good benefits, solid people, some interesting work (though tough to come by)

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with peers, PTO allowed is generous but impossible to take due to utilization requirements, very challenging to take control of your own project selection as a more junior-level employee, work-life balance can be very

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best talent is going to continue to leave after a few years if more is not done to allow them more control of their own career

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid salary and investment in milestone training programs.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is talked about, but it is up to each individual to find it. The company rejoices in long hours and dedication, but rewards are not based on effort nor necessarily on impact, but on being at the right place at the right time. Networking is critical to success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the apprenticeship part of the culture from the Partners on down. Make sure that Senior Managers are mentoring Managers - that link in the chain is broken.

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

    Pros

    - Fast paced.
    - Best and the brightest to work with.
    - Top end technology and resources like ultrabooks, iPhone 5s.
    - Best tools to make your job easier.
    - Work life Balance (no really, over the the whole year).
    - Compassionate managers.
    - Own your career.

    Cons

    - Pay could be better (but you go up fast).
    - Your entire experience will depend on the project you are assigned.
    - Review process is lengthy and drawn out.
    - Sales! Sales! Sales!
    - During busy season, it's busy.
    - Own your own career, so if you fail, it's on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What i would like to see is: Less focus on what resources fill what need and focus on what the end goal is. Too often resources are just pulled around haphazardly and then they are just set up to fail. If you pull a marketing major in to program algorithms, obviously it's going to fail for both the engagement and the resource.
    Don't bottle people into an industry. Once one industry contracts let the next expansion flourish. All to often good people will leave when they could leverage knowledge in another industry.

    What you are doing well: Letting people own their career. Letting people take the initiative to make a difference. Keeping the focus on happy people matter.

    Pros

    Opportunities abound to explore pretty much anything you might be interested in. That doesn't preclude having to work hard to find it, and to be successful while you're doing it, but the opportunity is there. Moreover the brand is on the up-and-up; the acquisition of Monitor Group in 2013 has really expanded brand permission into a number of new and interesting client spaces. If an entry-level hire takes advantage of all the leadership and interesting client engagements the firm has to offer (as mentioned, that might take some digging), exit opportunities won't be bad either.

    Cons

    Personal experience has shown those in their first 3-5 years at the firm, and the truly rockstar partners, make the firm run on a day to day basis. Unfortunately the firm has a hard time training and retaining effective management (Senior Consultant to Senior Manager, especially fresh MBAs) which may make life difficult for lower staff, on average. This may be an industry-wide critique, however
