    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging projects/clients. Smart people. Lots of learning. Opportunities plentiful to grow. More work you put in more you will get recognized/rewarded. If you can travel our boundaries are limitless. Good balance of benefits - 4-6 weeks PTO, 16 week paid parental leave, sabbatical programs, $500 heath subsidy, FSA/HSA, Tuition reimbursement, Paid graduate school programs, Health/Life Insurance etc etc etc.

    Cons

    Work = life. Not much life outside work. Not for you if you cannot completely dedicate yourself to your work. Limited local opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing the foolish flexibility and predictability games. You know that doesn't work in consulting.
