    Pros

    great benefits, decent pay, national staffing model so you have access to an office in most major US cities

    review process is convoluted and promotions are highly political. Additionally, it doesnt make sense for a team not based in your home office and who you dont work with on a day to day basis decide your fate in terms of promotions, raise and bonuses

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing group of professionals, both at leadership and staff level, and you can get really good exposure to the most complex issues companies around the world are facing today

    Cons

    Work life balance is out of the window, senior leadership works 24/7 and expects all to follow suit, there are people who do not know the technical aspects or the core business but just use politics to rise up in ranks, this is really alarming in such an open organization;

    Advice to Management

    Although I had a wonderful journey, I was really plagued by politics and the way some of the senior level members treat staff members, I do not indulge and support politics at work, no work-life balance, there is a need to watch all the groups closely and how fair are we treating employees from all religion, caste and creed and not just on the survey/training's that happen periodically.
