    Pros

    Everyone at Deloitte is very smart and driven. Its a great place to learn and get exposed to a variety of projects. I'm very happy I spent 5 years at Deloitte

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not great. They give us 25+ PTO days to use each year, but my workload does not permit me to use the PTO days.
    Increased use of off-shore employees means that current U.S. based employees are becoming expendable.
    Audit compensation is good not great.

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Great Place to learn
    Great Branding and Service Lines
    Great People (Smart and type A)
    5 Weeks PTO (6 As a Manager)
    Partner are pretty much down to earth and pretend to be accessible but are too busy for you

    Cons

    Dog eat dog environments in some practices
    As you move up, the nastier the partners get
    They find every reason not to give you a raise
    The expectation of work hours are not realistic
    They have favorites and only provide opportunity to those they like
    Unreasonable expectations
    Tight budgets and short -turnaround time for projects
    Their is no transparency in the rating system and manager are not truthful to your face but will rate you lower than you expected. Good luck finding out who it is if you work for many managers.
    Some management is too old school and think they know it all but have not realized that things have changed.
    Diversity is really a facade
     Deloitte preaches people first but treat their people poorly at times.

    Advice to Management

    Things are changing in the workforce and the old model is not sustainable. Deloitte will lose its place as the top professional services firm. Deloitte preaches people first but treat their people poorly at times.

    Pros

    Not many. It's a good name to have on your resume so that you can leave for a better opportunity after a few years.

    Cons

    Base compensation is abysmal. 401k match is even worse. Bonuses are sub-par. You won't be rewarded for good work, as the firm now seems to only care about whether you participated on proposals. The work itself wouldn't be terrible, except that we waste 90% of our time on meaningless tasks that we create for ourselves. Also, the "stay for the experience" argument is getting old, given that no one is making partner anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people about the way you treat them. Realize that we need people to actually do some client service work. Retaining work is as important as winning new work, and if everyone just worked on proposals we wouldn't actually make any money.
