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

    Pros

    -generally nice people to work with
    -generous PTO and holidays
    -flexible schedule and working situation at times, dependent on engagement team

    Cons

    -pay is well below industry and doesn't really coincide with performance (i.e., the pay difference between high and low performers is small)
    -no bonus potential until after you have been with the firm for 3 years
    -depending on your schedule, can be busy at all times of the year

    Advice to Management

    Make a better effort to reward and compensate high performers before they leave. Also, be more flexible in allocating resources to distribute work more evenly across engagements.

    Pros

    Good brand name on your resume

    Cons

    Narcissist partners, work life balance is a joke, not a place for honest hard-working non political person, divide the number of hours worked to salary you will be making less than minimum wages, fires at the flip of the hat

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better at giving a work life balance to people

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

    Pros

    A wide variety of projects working with a wide variety of people in several different places.

    Cons

    I was hired into an offering that has seen very few projects come through. The outlook for Advisory in general is bleak and layoffs are happening. Crappy raises and an increased minimum 45 hour work week.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work

    Office is nice and has a great view

    Unlimited (but unpaid) days off if you give notice

    Flex time

    Cons

    Management lies and says they're going to hire you full time to get you to stay there and do the same work full time employees are doing

    Good luck getting hired full time if you're a minority

    Expensive parking unless you want to park in an unsafe area

    No benefits

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell contractors you're going to hire them full time just to get them to stay and meet last second deadlines you didn't properly foresee. I'm glad I woke up and found a full time job. Perhaps it wouldn't look so bad if the contractors you did hire weren't all white males. There were plenty of minorities who were qualified. I will say my experience there did help me get my current job though...so thanks for that.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food. Decent managers - some were better than others. A few managers had a good grasp of what was going on. Flexible hours (usually). Overtime. Nice facility. Good experience if you're looking to go into a non-traditional legal career.

    Cons

    Sometimes expected to work long, unreasonable hours. Some manager have no idea what they're doing. I've never seen so many poor decisions made by a management team until I worked here; very little. Little pushback when it came to unreasonable deadlines which forced many to work long work weeks totaling not well over 50 hours. Managers cut contractors for no good reason but let others stay even though they broke several guild lines.

    Advice to Management

    You run the risk of burning out your contractors and FTEs. You need to understand your projects so you can make better decisions on how to complete them and pushback on your clients if they're making unreasonable demands.
