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

    Pros

    -Strong Name Brand in any almost any Industry and usually rated the top partner in the Gartner Quadrant for most technologies (Salesforce, SAP, etc)
    -The Deloitte name looks great on your resume (not many companies are in the same league)
    ot many companies look as good as the Deloitte name on your resume
    -Mature Methodology that enables you to have more structure
    -Talented Co-workers who generally lean towards being Type-A
    -Great Benefits
    -Best pay out of all Big 4 and also in Industry but of course still lagging behind BCG, Mckinsey, and Bain but they're competency is more in Strategy/Management whereas Deloitte has competencies in more areas
    -Extra holidays and free stuff (entire week from Christmas to New years was given to us paid as well as other days here and there which don't come out of our PTO bank; we also get free things like $500 wellness subsidies which can be used towards massages, gym memberships, etc., also received a free Alexa 2nd generation/Google home assistant)
    -Access to good training

    Cons

    -Hours can be long depending on project
    -Deloitte attracts Type As so although you work around talented people, they can sometimes rub you the wrong way since many are very competitive
    -Too much emphasis on Firm Initiatives (work outside of project work which includes recruiting, practice building, sales pursuits, white papers, etc); more so than other firms
    -Inability to transfer to other countries since the business model is Partner-Owned (technically you have to quit and then apply in the new country)
    -Can sometimes be elitist when it comes to hiring entry-level employees unless you have a very specific, in demand skillset that's hard to find (usually only hires from top 50 schools)

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest about the PTO reduction. I was hired mid 2018 and HR told me that I would be receiving 25 days of PTO but it wasn't until a few months after I started that I realized i was only getting 22 days out of the year. Apparently D shortened it by 3 days. This needs to be communicated better

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

    Pros

    Good pay, but the pay hikes are not great at all. They do work in every industry and service offering - so if you know where you want to be and want some quick experience this is a good place.

    Cons

    Minimal upward feedback - no way to share feedback with leaders making it a very top-down org.
    No regard for employees - loyalty to company is worthless here as you are treated as just a resource.
    Bad work/life balance as projects are always sold cheap - resources are overworked and utilized with only profit outlook.
    Unfortunate project staffing system - no way to build appropriate network as org is too large and you end up doing work you don't like just to keep your performance KPIs good.

    Advice to Management

    Build a more robust and cohesive upwards feedback system. Feedback for leaders from staff should somehow affect their reimbursement as that is only way to drive change bottom-up
