    Pros

    Challenging projects. Excellent teams and good culture. Good salary for young professional. Opportunity to learn and grow. If you are truly motivated, willing to put in long hours, and play politics with managers / clients, you can do very well.

    Cons

    Sub-optimal work-life balance. Difficult travel and demanding career overall. Pay can be low when considering the amount of hours worked. Not all projects are glamorous as recruiting makes them out to be.

    Advice to Management

    Better staffing of teams. Most teams are unstaffed for the scope that's been committed. Overall incorporation of better work-life fit for employees would be advised.

    Pros

    Deloitte makes sure you are extremely well prepared to face the customer and challenges around the consulting world. If you have been to other consulting firms (non-big4) you'll notice that you never got such great information to get a head start. The firm sets high standards, consistently deliver and invests heavily on their branding and make sure you are prepared to deliver that within their expectations.

    Top level management are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning. It is quite easy to have conversations with upper management people, most people keep open door policies and they will try to help you in any way they can.

    Deloitte University is a fantastic facility and the company invested heavily there and all the training you get there are top notch. You will find that Deloitte is on this business to win big and if you are able to network well you will grow easily on the firm. The benefits package is very good, pretty standard across the industry.

    The company has multiple mobile apps which makes your life a lot easier. Timesheets, expense reports, meeting/desk reservations can be done easily from your mobile phone. There are no delays on payment of expenses unless you have something that is really out of policy. There is a hotline for ANY question you may have and they resolve everything in 1 phone call.

    Cons

    I have found that even with a very big network outside the firm that connected me to people inside the firm, it can be hard to get staffed. They have a system where you look for project opportunities but that system is often outdated and you can not know who is hiring for specific jobs.
    A lot of people, specially senior managers and partners are often way too busy to respond to your e-mail and sometimes they will not even get into a phone call with you unless someone else referred you. There is intense competition and back-stabbing happens all the time and faster than you can think. One little honest mistake spreads quicker than a great achievement. Once you have done something that others claimed to be bad, it is hard to get your image back and you won't be invited to projects. You'll slowly sink if you don't play the political game.

    HR and your resource manager are very nice to you, and they will try to help you to get into a project. However, you must be flexible and willing to work on something you don't master. I personally don't like the idea of begging for work while you can see everyone else is busy. However, take advantage to learn a different skill. I ended up leaving because I could not survive a political game within a small group.

    Work/life balance is not truly there. There isn't a way to implement this easily in consulting. However, you should never expect someone to be available after hours and to work in the weekend. Even worse is hold someone accountable and stab them in the back if they had personal commitments on a weekend where you decided on a Friday afternoon that you need someone to work on a presentation that needed to be done on Monday morning. This can be something doable for young kids but not for employees with families.

    Advice to Management

    I do not think Senior Management is doing a bad job, in fact, it is the total opposite. They are aiming high and they will hit their goals, especially with their consistent high standards.
    I would advise to make sure partners are held accountable for the resources they hire. If you hired someone, you should make sure that the person can find the way around. This will not happen if you don't answer emails or phone calls. There are very few hands-on guys and those willing to be hands on are often pushed to the side and can become bored quickly. Make sure that work/life balance is set properly. Don't allow partners and senior managers to force people out of their weekend/evening plans with last minute requests and expect them to drop their family plans to work on a proposal (for example).

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

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home, generous PTO, great place to work. The company CEO is the best I've seen in the industry.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Lots of red tape. The leadership at the local office level will run everyone off unless they figure out how to manage people fairly, stop picking favorites, and stop ignoring problems that affects the whole group.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful when employees are overworked and do something about it. Overall, keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great to work with others your age. Lots of training and very standardized ways of completing activities with no room for creativity

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of travel. Does not care about your travel preferences or life outside of Deloitte. 401k could be a lot better

    Appreciate your staff
