    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With a name like Deloitte everything "should be" considered Pro

    Cons

    Promised positive changes and growth within Department and US facility by Canadian Partner - only to have the office shut down 5 months later. Didn't deliver the bad news himself - poor management style.
    Worked in US site using US Human Resources but reported administratively to Partner/mgrs in Canada - very confusing for all.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with what Partners are telling staff. Don't have administration in a different country with the human resources residing in US

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Deloitte has a lot of smart people doing interesting work.

    Having Deloitte on your resume will help you to advance your career.

    Deloitte has some very cool offices and is trying to become a fun place to work with lots of extra-curricular activities,

    Cons

    Deloitte talks about work life balance and how it wants to improve it but in reality it works fine until work life balance conflicts with a deadline and they you are expected to work 80 hours a week and weekends to make it happen.

    Deloitte culture is very much about bringing bright young people into the organisation and burning them out and can't really cope with anyone older than 30 joining below senior manager. To quote one partner "I don't know why we hire people like you" he was referring to my age.

    Advice to Management

    Your efforts on gender discrimination have been laudable, but you need to do more for other types of discrimination including ageism.

    Your on-boarding of employees is okay but your off-boarding of employees is awful. Why alienate people who resign from your company, you never know they may be buying professional services in the future.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inclusive Organization, forward thinking, excellent internal branding, great benefits, competitive salary, loads of potential to move up the chain and become a Leader in the firm.

    Cons

    Highly political. Multiple management layers to navigate, making it difficult to know who's the boss. Highly competitive environment that breeds ambition and results in cutthroat behaviour. Ambiguity in the rules. Deloitte loves its business chemistry and if one's labeled a pioneer there's a misguided impression that it's the only way to act - in other words, to hell with the rules!

    Advice to Management

    Be clear with your direction, and stick to your convictions. There's nothing wrong with being a Guardian.

    Some managers who come from a non corporate background need training in how to be an effective manager.
