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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for professional growth and development. There are a lot of very bright and social junior practitioners, which makes work more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Solutions aren’t particularly innovative and leadership can sometimes plays a large role in inhibiting practitioners from achieving their potential. Junior practitioners can sometimes get stuck on painfully boring projects for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Let practitioners rotate projects more frequently in federal

    Pros

    Amazing support and resources. Management will typically fight in your corner

    Cons

    They give you a lot of PTO that you are not allowed or expected to take. And if you take it, it could have negative impacts to your performance reviews

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte is such large company, it's hard to implement changes from the top down. "Culture" is a funny word when you have 200,000 employees. There's enough information out there about Deloitte that you probably don't have to read it in this review.

    Pros

    If your interests are aligned with where the firm would like to go, they will invest in you.
    Great people, helpful support staff

    They own your day/life
    Must attend most activities for the networking opportunities

    Pros

    Great company! Exposure to different industries, amazing benefits, travel to different parts of the country! Exposure to upper management. Company will provide industry specific trainings!

    Cons

    None really, you know what you're getting into if you're working for Deloitte or any big 4, if you haven't done your research and think it's hard to work then you're not a good fit.

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

    Pros

    Lots of benefits to include paying for certs, well being pay, and gift cards are rewards.

    Cons

    Information regarding promotion and how pay is determined is kept hidden. Promotions are only give in August and when your raise is less than inflation they will say it is due to a level cap that doesn't exist. Also, your career is not in your nor your supervisors hands but is determined by a "coach" who may or may not care about you.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about the processes and allow people to drive their own careers with this knowledge. This should be part of in processing not something an employee should find out through the grapevine.
