    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Deloitte has very good benefits and places emphasis on work/life balance. For Managers and above you get 5 weeks PTO. For women this is an excellent employer as they have generous mat leave benefits. Men are also accorded parental leave. Deloitte acknowledges non-traditional families so partners of the LGBT community are eligible for benefits. Lately the firm has been shutting down completely from Christmas Day to New Year's to allow practitioners to completely unplug and recharge sans guilt. When the firm exceeds it's targets all practitioners receive an extra treat like a $500 Gift Card in addition to annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Depending on your management team things can be tricky. Some Managers encourage working from home and insist that you take all your allocated PTO while some especially in the Consulting arena are most concerned with billable hours and give short shrift to work/life balance. I would encourage anyone considering employment with the firm to be upfront during the interview phase and let them know if you need to leave at 3:00PM each day for kiddie pick up. Many managers are willing to work with you on your schedule as long as the job gets done at the end of the day and an you are reachable when needed. As a working mother with young kids I was able to negotiate my schedule to work around my kids needs.
    As a firm under the jurisdiction of the SEC 401K options can be limited. We cannot invest in a firm we audit so playing the Mega Lotto is verboten.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing and rewarding good people.

    Definitely a bodyshop. Only met with my coach twice because they were too busy. Hard to change projects and was bored most of the time.

    Work on mentorship programs and promoting people who are at a higher level than the job they are in

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great company for growing your career. There are many trainings you can sign up for. You can learn technical skills as well as softer skills, i.e. leadership and facilitating consultative sessions. It's all about building relationships with your managers and clients. The path to promotion is always clear but not always straight-forward or easy to make happen (other factors come into play, besides your performance)

    Cons

    Health benefits are not great. Generally, people judge quickly and size you up. Work life balance is not existent.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training, and opportunities to grow are in abundance. Pay is pretty good as well as recognition which results in additional monetary compensation.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult as you get older and more responsibility is added to your personal life such as growing your family or pursuing other opportunities to support your personal happiness. This company reviews performance by comparing you to your peers with no consideration to the fact that everyone has different circumstances. Builds a stressful environment with overly competitive peers, backstabbing and premature promotions for friends of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Measure performance on a set criteria instead of comparing peers. The culture is dangerous and not sustainable for millennials. You will lose your talent faster than ever before if you don’t start thinking about building a more healthy culture fostered on collaboration instead of competition.

    Pros

    Very smart peers, broad client base, great opportunities available upon starting with the firm. Competitive salary, defined ascension plan.

    Cons

    Work-life balance depends greatly on your project leadership/client, limited lifespan for non-technology-implementation projects, lack of dedication to federal mission space. Terrible 401k match, overly competitive peers.

    Pros

    - Great people, good benefits (6 months maternity leave), diverse experiences, constantly striving to improve, strives to teach their employees new skills

    Cons

    depending on the project long hours, metrics drive people to work in areas they may not be passionate about, can be competitive, still a male dominated leadership, salary is not competative

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees a higher salary - especially Federal sector. Work on supporting female leaders and coaching to PPD (beyond a few select programs).
