    Pros

    Some of the brightest minds and hard workers in the industry. Fun place to start with a lot of colleagues being the same age as you.

    Cons

    If you don't like the profession you are going to be burned out quickly. The only thing that keeps you there is the solid PTO program and the people. Once they start leaving you want to leave too.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make Deloitte feel a little smaller.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Compensation is fair
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    My leaders are absolutely clueless
    Most of the old-timers just hang around to retire and get their pension
    Most of the leaders have been in the company so long, they don't understand what innovation really means
     Insane politics and MDs behave childish
    No direction or vision provided by MDs
    Their yearly feedback in writing is given by a green dot in a 2x2 quadrant
    I have had the most clueless boss in my life over 15 years. I am not sure how she's reached this level and shes not the only one within the organization.
    Remote teams hardly engage with each other apart from meetings. Its like talking to strangers at times!

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a due-diligence on the leadership, especially MDs and Senior managers who have spent more than 10 years in the company and not producing any value whatsoever
    Walk the talk and take more risks with innovation, rather than thinking if you will lose your job by taking such risks

    Pros

    Pays high, but you work a ton of hours for it. So, per hour, you aren't actually paid as well.

    Cons

    A lot: 60+ hour work weeks, bad clients, travel, etc.
