    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits are excellent. I feel like I am growing as a consultant every day on the job. Friendly and extremely smart coworkers as well as excellent training resources. $500 wellness subsidy is a great perk. High emphasis on networking in the firm.

    Cons

    Staffing can be a challenge when you first start at the firm as it took a month for me to get placed on my first project. Jumping through independence requirements can be a challenge. Work-Life balance can be difficult if you aren’t willing or unable to set boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to emphasize work-life balance especially on high burn high travel engagements and negotiate this with clients up front.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Endless pool of SMEs. Some pockets of good management.

    Cons

    Dog eat dog. Management only looks out for themselves. Analysts, Consultants, senior Consultants are interchangeable at will with little regard to their future or setting them up for next engagements. 1-2 reviews written at the end of a project can eliminate all the good work you’ve put in for the team and clients. HBR awarded year end review system that is even more convoluted and a black box than before. No personal life. Don’t expect to ever use your 5 weeks PTO unless you want to ruin your utilization and chances of promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good and a lot has been changing but the people it really impacts (I.e., BA, Consultants, SC) get no say.
