    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place to start a career and begin. Once you have the professional training from Deloitte you will be ready to tackle any other industry or job in the future! Deloitte also has many out of town trainings and will most definitely take care of you when you are either traveling or in the office. Also if you are working long hours they have many great benefits and will reward you for your hard work. The people at the firm are also very intelligent as Deloitte selects the best people out there so you will for sure he working with smart and like-minded individuals.

    Cons

    You must be proactive about getting the proper mentorship and training to get the most out of your Deloitte experience. The pairings of mentor/mentee is impossible to get get down to a science so it is at times hit or miss. The hours are definitely long at times and you must be proactive and want to do well. Also since you are working with such motivated individuals you must be always on top of your work and put in those extra hours so that you are able to excel and be able to stay within the pack which can be both a great thing for your professional development and advancement!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and continue to seek out professional development to further those skills.

    Pros

    Deloitte is an industry leader. They boast a good reputation, and hire the best people. Because Deloitte is privately held, the partners treat the company like their baby, and make decisions which are best for business in the long run. Deloitte takes care of its employees by offering a competitive compensation and benefits plans. You have a lot of freedom to customize your career including increasing your workload to "fast track your career" or decreasing your workload to focus on parenting and other life activities. Deloitte promotes a team/family culture, so you know your coworkers and care about them.

    Cons

    A downside would be you are judged during your year end performance evaluation on your participation in firm activities outside of client work. Your year end rating is based upon a "bell curve" and it is important to network because the firm is very political. They have many initiatives to promote work/life balance, but there are still strides needed to make it easier to balance having a family with working at Deloitte.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the firm has some work to do about having some more diverisity in Senior Management. Leadership is aware of their need to improve in this area, and have started initiatives to that effect, but it is still a work in progress.
