    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Brilliant people, ever-changing work, lots of learning. Then the usual consulting pros: airline miles, hotel points, and Deloitte can help you get or match status when needed.

    You'll meet awesome folks who will challenge you, and you will learn quickly if you're eager to do so. If you're willing to work and can handle the travel, then this firm can take you places.

    Cons

    Consulting has travel. Deloitte is more flexible when needed on travel than most, but you're still on the road a lot. Be into that, or don't do consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep seeking out the best people and helping them float to the top. Keep working on diversity and inclusion. We are far better than most, and I am very thankful for it, but there's more to do, and it's our duty to set the example to the rest of the Big 4 and our clients.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, unless you're a masochist.

    Cons

    Yesterday I was fired after 3 days on a project. Why? The project manager (I'm not sure if you can even call him that) sent out notice of a telephone training at 9:45am, for a 10am meeting. I had an important call scheduled for 10am. Given the non-existent notice, I took my call instead (I actually even considered rescheduling it). I went into the designated phone area took take my call and the project manager blows the door open, busts into the private room and starts yelling at me and demanding I get into the training meeting. As appalled as I was I nodded my head yes. The training call lasted less than 10 min, I never made it in. Thereafter I didn't receive a badge (I was told there was a bug in it), my computer was not updated, but no one had any nerve to say anything to my face (I tried, but there was only one, nonprivate room, and was blown off by the manager before). When I got home I got a call at 7pm from my recruiter telling me I had been released from the project. Good riddance. I write this review to warn you to stay away. Also, I'm 7 months pregnant and was sat next to the door and had to answer it for three days bc the company didn't have badges for us. The project manager didn't pitch in to help once. I can't think of a more toxic environment, and we're talking about law practice. Godspeed, Deloitte. The company's lucky they don't have lawsuits against them. Though I'm sure they will soon if they don't already.

    Advice to Management

    Crank up the heat and get used it. It's hot in hell.

    Pros

    Family leave benefit is amazing and you are surrounded by talented and experienced individuals who can be great mentors. The expectations are high, but my experience is that there are a wealth of tools and individuals in the organization to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a real challenge at any workplace. Deloitte has provided more and more flexible options to practitioners to help create a more sustainable working rhythm. Ownership is on you to set appropriate expectations and boundaries through clear communication with your project teams and leadership to ensure you can avoid burnout.
