Pros

A good place for young professionals to gain skills.

Cons

Everyone is out for himself. The incentive model pits employees against each other. Everyone wants your knowledge and your assistance until you are obligated to ask for credit on the deal, and then you're cut out. In stead of getting the job done, workers are left on the bench unbillable because they are overqualified (too expensive for the Partner's net profit report).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the customer first. Don't be so risk adverse. Make Deloitte more personable.

    Pros

    Standard Promotions. Earnings a little bit more than minimum wage. Looks good on the resume. You learn alot. High quality work performed on enagagements; but only due to fear by management of PCAOB comments.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance - One of Deloitte's biggest jokes, which is why the firm has been trying to change the term to Work/Life fit. If your life is more than your work at Deloitte, Deloitte is not a good fit for you. When starting at Deloitte, please remove all your facebook friends, breakup with your boyfriend/girlfriend, and delete all personal contacts from your phone. Deloitte is your life now.
    Promotions - You will not be promoted any faster than Deloitte's schedule.
    Work - Take your time finishing your work. If you finish all your work fast and ahead of schedule, you will just be assigned someone else's work; and it will also burn you out in the process.
    Management - The firm has been promoting alot of workaholics recently. If you are not abiding by their schedule, they will look down on you and think you are not trying hard enough. Many of these workaholics don't know what to do with themselves if they have only been working 40 hours a week. Many of these workaholics are in bad marriages, and prefer to be at work than spending time at home with their 'so called' loved ones. Therefore they often will search for more work to do and generally will try to find additional work for the engagement. These workaholics consider 'light' work weeks 40 hours, and often say that they don't know what to do with themselves if they are not working more hours.
    Raises - The 15-20% raises they told you to expect each year in school was a complete lie. You can generally expect a 2/3% raise each year, unless it is a promotion year, in which you can expect 5-13%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting workaholics - it is ruiining your culture.

    Pros

    A lot of diversity in projects as well as colleagues. Lots of great experience in Strategy & Ops in Consulting

    Cons

    Not a great place for professional growth, which may have more to do with current economic climate than the firm itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for growth, need a better culture of recognition and rewards
