I have been working at Deloitte

Pros

1 ) Incomparable visibility into the internal workings of a variety of companies
2 ) Possibilities for rapid advancement compared to other similar career options
3 ) Post-employment clout given experience at a "Big-Four" firm

Cons

1 ) Compensation is not in line with the time/effort required and expected of employees both on a regional basis within the same firm and as compared to similar job opportunities with other firms
2 ) Tendency is to treat people as a means to an end and the performance feedback loop leaves a lot to be desired

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make feedback meaningful and make it possible for someone to stand out and be recognized for their abilities without having to cow-tow, resort to disingenuity, and eat hours in order to meet minimum expectations (even if the individual is more than sufficiently competent).

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating work. Most of the people you work with are bright and motivated. Great exposure to Fortune 500 clients and mid to senior level management within those organizations. The firm also provides an effective feedback process.

    Cons

    A very political environment accompanied by a rigid promotion structure. You can be smarter, work harder and be rated higher than your peers and be promoted at the same rate and paid very similar salaries (within 1-2% difference) as those who just show up and go through the motions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance. Those who work harder and take a vested interest in their career with the firm should be recognized and compensated more so than those who are along for the ride and re merely "meeting expectations". Top performers should be identified early and given more opportunities within the firm to succeed. Only then will competent staff and seniors someday become competent partners and senior leaders.
