    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamic and progressive firm with good benefits. Always improving how and what they do so you learn a lot. Training programs are great and plentiful.

    Cons

    Can be hard to balance work/life at times. Ever increasing work load and not staffing up fast enough is common. Project/client teams can be very demanding and expect 24/7 responses.

    Advice to Management

    Establish better guidelines for project team to limit night/weekend demands.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, excellent pay, many project opportunities to choose from. Cutting edge technology. Can perform many roles. Well known as number one Big 4 firm.

    Cons

    Extremely cliquish. If you don't know anyone be prepared to rot on bench and then get chewed out about utilization being low. Work life balance is pitiful. Plenty of HR nonsense about health and welfare of employees, not followed on projects. Must be able to meet any day and any night. Most upper level stuck in 1980 employee employer relationships. Very few Americans in tech advisory, they don't hire many natives. Lots of BS brown nosing required at office even after traveling all week. Required to be in office on Friday even if on opposite coast the rest of the week. No control over assignments but still required to keep utilization extremely high. Be prepared to have a coach who doesn't work in your area and or doesn't have a clue about your skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating middle people better and follow through with work life balance initiatives.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to a variety of industries, work life balance and taking ALL of your PTO is highly encouraged

    Cons

    You can very easily get boxed into one particular area of work and it can be difficult to venture into other service lines or sub-practice areas.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the smoke screen and be straight up with the fact that an 'Advisory Consultant' is not a management consultant. The 'consultant' title is sold to thousands of new hires every year who come in thinking they're doing consulting work when in reality they signed up to be IT auditors or outsourced internal auditors.

    Pros

    Deloitte has very structured counseling and mentorship relationships and an open staffing model that places more career agency in the hands of analysts and consultants.

    Cons

    There is an overemphasize on internal initiatives relative to other firms in an effort to build firm culture, which forces employees to dedicate themselves to 1-3 part-time initiatives in addition to client projects.
