I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- Challenging workplace that forces you outside of your comfort zone - provides unparalleled learning experiences at the beginning of one's career.
- Leader within its marketplace. Project opportunities are with blue chip clients.
- Generally good people, many of whom became friends outside of work.

Cons

- Consulting is a loose term and Deloitte is not a strategy firm; rather, the Firm provides clients with intelligent individuals as short- to medium-term staff augmentation. Consultants are focused on executing operational tasks that do not require innovative thinking. Projects become mundane quickly.

- Size. It's a behemoth. Unfortunately, as an employee, it felt too big for its own good. Service areas fought against each other for business and it was difficult to find a sense of engagement with the broader Firm. The values and experiences that tenured practitioners reminisced about fondly were completely different from the current state of the Firm's culture.

- "PRD" (aka extracurriculars) - there is a heavy focus on non-billable work to "support Firm development." Essentially its free labor for Deloitte that practitioners are forced into, but are never truly thanked/recognized for after hitting (or surpassing) the status quo.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Develop programs and initiatives focused specifically on retaining top talent;
- Increase transparency in every regard;
- Visit client teams more often and organize opportunities to connect outside the office...this had a huge, positie impact on engagement and morale but unfortunately became less common with each year

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for learning new skills delivered with quality.

    Cons

    Difficult to move around in the company if you want to try new things outside your starting function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For controller group - market and support controllers as part of the project team rather than keeping them mostly in back office roles. Integration and support for projects will happen best with controllers attending meetings with project leadership - becoming a trusted member of the team.
