    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, flexibility of schedule/work location, and having the opportunity to work for a best in class organization. I enjoy working with extremely smart people on interesting projects and have been able to transition into different career paths over the years. I also have worked from home for the past 6 years, but can go into the office if I am seeking more live interaction.

    Cons

    Working at Deloitte is not for the faint of heart - performance expectations are high. However, the flexibility, people you will work with and industry leading work, resources, processes and systems make it very well worth it.

    Former Employee - Project Controller in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits for consultants. Ability to work from home twice a week after 1 year.

    Cons

    No work and life balance. Chicago office PC practice has a lot of issues with management. Management doesn't want to hire more resources and instead they over utilize current employees until they burn out & leave. Seems that practice is focused more on replacing employees that leave with new hires rather than making sure that current employees are happy & want to stay. Avoid at all cost. The worst job that I ever...
