    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best company to work for in the consulting industry. Provides all the latest tools and technologies to advance your skills and career. Very supportive work culture. Brand image in the market.

    Cons

    Better start building your network on day one. That’s everything. Your network speaks volumes. Work load is heavy but that why you get too dollars. It’s one or the other.

    Advice to Management

    Need to include more work life balance. Not all service lines implement the philosophy.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wide variety of clients
    Interesting work (at times)
    Great laptop technology refresh
    Flexible schedule
    Some great people

    Cons

    Too many people to please
    People will stab you at year end from your project and never own up to it even though they gave you a good/great rating while on the project
    Trying to become Accenture
    VERY hard to move up (because of all the higher level people coming over from Accenture)
    Not a meritocracy - must kiss a lot of butt to get ahead rather than have real skills
    Need to donate a lot of your time pro bono to work on proposals but not counted for your metrics
    If you want a real raise, you need to leave and come back. I knew consultants making more than managers and they were new consultants with almost no skills compared to very experienced and seasoned managers

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear vision and communicate it. Reduce the number of PPMDs on a project. Have PPMDs back up their staff when they are right rather than fold like a wet napkin to a higher level PPMD. Actually care about your paper in deed, not just words. If you want to become another Accenture, just buy the company rather than hire all their people into Consulting. Makes it almost impossible for people that have been with Consulting to move up.

    Pros

    Amazing project experiences and best compensation in the market by a long shot

    Cons

    Consulting takes a toll on your life in the relentless travel and immense pressure from time to time because of a blowhard who oversells and rides on the backs of his team who kill themselves to get it done.

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about firm contributions. Too many people just checking the box and put no soul into it just to say they did something.

    Current Employee - Technology Consultant in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    - Hard to ask for a better job out of college
    - Initial starting cohort makes all the long hours worth it
    - If you can luck into a great project / team members the lifestyle can be incredibly fun
    - Hotel / Flying rewards programs are a nice side benefit

    Cons

    - Luck of the draw for managers and projects like any consulting firm
    - SAP Service Line is terribly structured and
    - Counselor role is just a checklist item for most SAP managers
    - Too much luck of the draw when it comes to getting a manager to help with your career advancement
    - No bonus until after your first full year as a Consultant. (For a new hire out of college that means three full years at the firm)

    Advice to Management

    - Dont sell the "own your career" narrative if that consistently is challenged by Resource Managers and administration
    - Get rid of the requirement for all managers to take on counselees or else do a better job of making sure counselors are actually helping

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone was extremely nice, smiling, and willing to help with any trivial task.

    Cons

    Travel can be seen as a con for some.

    Advice to Management

    Expanding the intern program to 10/12 weeks and reaching out more on college campus would definitely attract more students to the company.
