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

    Pros

    Smart people. Interesting projects. Good benefits. Opportunity for continuous education.

    Cons

    Its all about the project success, even if it means there is no work/life balance for employees. Not all partners are made the same.

    Advice to Management

    Always consider your team, your most valuable asset. If you treat them well, they will stick with you even during difficult projects.

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

    Pros

    A lot of training, They will pay for school and cert and etc. Great pyramid setup and you can easily talk to different higher ups. There is a pension after 3 years but the average turn over is 1.5 years. Makes most revenue out of the big four. Looks to be the number one in Cyber in consulting. Can move and try new projects and roles all the time.

    Cons

    Benefits are really bad compare to other firms. 401K only gives you 25% of each percent you put up to 6%. So if you put 6, they give you 1.5%

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

    Pros

    Deloitte has great benefits, including 401(k) match, pension, health, and wellness subsidy. PTO is accrued at a very reasonable rate, and there are generous holidays. Deloitte expects employees to make the most of their time off, so your vacation time is expected to be away from work. There is a pervasive attitude at Deloitte the what is best for your career is what is best for the firm.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a high-performance firm, as such, the exception is that employees are high performance. This can lead to long hours and high stress.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start out of college. A lot of motivated individuals.

    Cons

    Unless you are gunning for a PPD position, this may not be the right place for type B individuals. A lot of strategy type work and deck building. Not for those who want to get hands on experience.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide variety of challenges, great smart coworkers, opportunity to learn. Fast paced and interesting. Never a dull moment. There are some truly caring and exceptional people to hang around with. Generally close to the cutting edge and it's impossible to become stale.

    Cons

    Tenure valued over talent for PPD admission. Butt kissing practically essential. Annoying minority of posers and hacks. Too many stupid "rules". Can often border on slavery and requires tremendous personal sacrifice (no weekends or holidays off if it's crunch time). Very much a "what have you done for me today" culture. Very unfair performance appraisal process: mediocre performers can get better ratings because someone feels guilty or they're being considered for promotion. It's frustrating to do a great job yet get a 2 you didn't deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Your talent management approach won't work with your now millennial dominated work force. Deloitte is doubling down on being old school with hard requirements to pay your dues and spend lots of time at grade. Some of your best people are walking out the door because you pretend that you can't do anything for them and great opportunities await outside. Practice what you preach around rewarding differentiated performance.
