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

Pros

1. The firm offers world class training in hard and soft skills. Makes one of the best places to work if you are just starting your career.
2. Offers above average benefits and compensation.
3. You may get very good exposure to a diverse set of industry projects

Cons

1. They will continue to hire new staff with same skills even if you are on bench for a long time.
2. If you have over 2 decades of industry experience, you will be the last one to get hired on projects. And if you are on bench for over a certain number of weeks, you will be asked to leave.
3. Its a game of musical chairs to get billable on client projects.
4. Work life balance - one of the worst in the industry. Expectation is - put work before everything else including family.
5. Outside the firm exeperience is rarely respected. It is better to grow from entry level position to top. In other words - not a place to be for experienced hire.
6. Even if you are a very experienced professional , a junior colleague may write your performance reviews.
7. It does not matter how talented you are , if you are not well "networked" you will be on bench for ever.
8. Aggressive sales and poor execution of client projects
9. Very hard to please management. Quality rarely matters, where as quantity (number of hours, number of papers) do matter.
10. You are always compared to your peers for performance. If your peers put 80 hours per week, and you put only 60, you are rated "poorly performing".
11. You are always judged by your current numbers , and NOT by your potential or previous track record.
12. Due to exorbitant growth, the firm has become a wholesaler of technology practitioners.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is something every one has unique talent that they can offer to business community. Know that talent early on and deploy the staff accordingly. Treat each practitioner uniquely and not as a widget.
