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

    Pros

    The culture is awesome. People are very friendly, and most people emphasize working as a team.

    Cons

    Travelling is expected, so its not for everyone. You can get lucky and be staffed locally, but at some point in your career you may have to travel and that can be a burden on your family, etc. Also the firm's pay is not very high for college grads, etc. In some spaces (e.g. cyber), there are lots of opportunities outside of Deloitte that are higher paying, and I've seen many of my peers leave the company because of this.

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great company that offers good benefits, flexibility in determining your schedule and working remotely, as well as autonomy to execute on projects that you own. The people at Deloitte are generally helpful and there is a strong, positive culture at the company. You will be provided with many opportunities to advance, as well as network with other people within the company to navigate the work that is being performed within the ERS space.

    Cons

    Salary is pretty low and once you get past the Sr. Consultant level, it takes quite a bit of time to move up in the ranks. Work schedule can be quite demanding during audit busy seasons. It can also be difficult to get off of IT audit projects when you are pegged as an IT Specialist within the Assurance workline.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with more opportunities to explore avenues outside of the IT audit space within Assurance. While this space provides a great foundation of learning of how to work in a large company, stick to deadlines, manage budgets, work in a team setting, and more, it would help talent retention by providing exposure to other types of work when employees express interest in doing so.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good conditions, flexible time, always promoting diversity and inclusion, training and tools are available and great networking to solve most of the problems during a project. You can find great and smart people

    Cons

    Workload can be a pretty hard, it is common to find your self working 50-60 hrs x week or even weekends, stress is there most of the time, dead lines and some times lots of travel, dates can be really demanding and most of the time are already due.

    Advice to Management

    To try reduce the workload on the teams by promote a better or more realistic time line for projects, I think needs to be done since the selling process before starting the actual projects.

    Pros

    Good quality work. Lots of different projects. Deloitte University is pretty epic.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. You're promotions are tied to "networking" which is just a nice word for knowing people that are useful. Hard to switch projects.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for people to switch projects. Let people's work speak for themselves and decide their promotion, instead of their connections.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Payscale was good for enviornment. Nice atomosphere, up on techonolgy.

    Cons

    Too many expectations on your time. Need high utilization, training hours, firm contributions and charity work to move upward in the company. Hard to do while have a certain number of billable hours. Push to travel, not great for working parents.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the multiple requirements on employees time. Allow them to have time for family.
