    Pros

    The people! Hands down that it was make Deloitte a great place to work. There is a genuine concern for your well-being and career advancement

    Cons

    As much as they pay lip service to the idea of work life balance, it is just a really hard thing to expect as a management consultant. Also, because it is a structured organization, there are a LOT of hoops to jump through to get from level to level. Although the path to career progression is laid out fairly clearly, there is little one can do to accelerate the process. Additionally, there is a sense of having more control over your path & projects than you actually have...not necessarily a bad thing but it helps to be aware of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent. I saw politics at play that were really disheartening. Partners play favorites and I get that, but it can be really damaging to morale.

    Pros

    Great Pay. Good Opportunities.
    Plenty of chances to show off your talents.
    If you have a lot of self-discipline, then this is a great job for you. There is no one in the firm to stand over you and micromanage your work. You are in charge of your own career.

    Cons

    Lots of Gossip, especially in the smaller practices.
    If you cannot network with people, then this job is not for you.
    Additionally, there is a focus on firm activities. I am not a fan of these, as I view them as a waste of time, but other people enjoy them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for more training and education classses. One you are staffed on projects, training becomes an afterthought.
