    Pros

    Deloitte is #1, it the resume builder of resume builders at is such a recognizable name. The company does many creative and innovative things around the world, so it can feel like you're apart of something truly groundbreaking.

    Cons

    The Canadian firm is a mess. They have very little respect for people, they are continually going against their own values, and managers and senior managers are seldom exciting, innovative or great leaders. There are very little career development opportunities and a whole lot of smokescreen and mirrors. They tell you, "you can develop, travel, get put on amazing projects", and they neglect to tell you that this is rare and great opportunities only come around 1-2 years. Oh, and if you're not available, then your waiting period essentially starts again. Even at the very top, there are very few leaders and a whole bunch of expert managers who care little about people and a whole lot about excellence and execution.

    Advice to Management

    Taking the values of the firm (leader at every level, work your way, etc.) and begin to apply them, measure performance based on them, and challenge all leaders to push themselves to act accordingly. There is a major disconnect here between what you value and how the majority of your leaders behave and treat their times. It's time to bring about change, and small change isn't good enough anymore.
