Pros

Deloitte provides unique opportunities to work as part of a truely innovative consulting firm that is first to market with many of the solutions it offers to clients. Deloitte provides practitioners of all levels opportunities to drive their career and ontribute as a leader in a multitude of capacities in either internal or external projects. Deloitte's focus on professional development provides great opportunities to make yourself more marketable either within the consulting sector or within many industries, on their dime.

Cons

Deloitte's work life "balance" is a joke. It is almost impossible to meet your required utilization rate (accounting for holidays & PTO) without consistently working 50 hours a week at the client site, and then contributing to a multitude of "firm contributions" and business development on top of that. Deloitte's heavily bureuacratic nature turns you into just another number come review time, so don't rely on the ability of any local leadership to support you when it comes to that promotion, bonus, or raise that you have been working for. Although the salary and bonus look pretty sweet on the surface, once you realize all of the additional work that is involved outside of your normal client delivery, you'd be better off with a smaller consulting firm, unless you are just starting out your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With the state of the current job market, it is not longer reasonable for Deloitte's retainment model to be "you should feel priviledged to work at Deloitte". Work on your work life "fit" (there is no way there will ever be a balance at Deloitte), examine your extensive and bureaucratic annual review process, and look to exceed your competitors (instead of just trying to keep pace with them) when it comes to compensation, if you can't fix anything else.

    Pros

    - Good mentors (Consultant, Senior Consultant, Manager, and Senior Manager level) that show patience to coach you
    - Leadership that allows you the space to make mistakes and learn
    - Opportunity to work with some amazing and talented people
    - Get to work on high-profile clients and projects

    Cons

    - Poor management of the Green Card process that can cause tremendous hardship for the employee during their time at the firm, or for years after they've left Deloitte
    - Easy for an employee to get pigeonholed, which could potentially limit opportunity for professional growth and reaching full potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Deloitte should switch to a more competent immigration counsel and set up systematic checks to ensure that an employee's Green Card process is handled in a timely and competent manner while setting appropriate expectations; poor management of Green Card sponsorship can have a long-lasting and severe impact on the employee
    - Recognize employee strengths based on their educational background and allow them to develop those strengths into a value-adding asset for the firm
