    Has done very well tapping into the SAP S/4HANA opportunity

    Encourages new people more than the existing
    A lot of importance given to network development. No network, better to leave

    Make it exciting for old and new employees alike, moderate focus on selling and focus on quality delivery like before.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I think Deloitte is really trying to create some work/life balance. Anyone in consulting knows that's a big challenge. At least they try...

    Cons

    Same cons as any other big 4 consulting firm. The work can occasionally take over your life and make you want to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making strides to improve work/life balance. Find a better performance management system and immediately get rid of dead weight. Too many projects with co-workers that drag the team down. The slack has to be made up by your top performers and will eventually drive them to quit.

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

    Pros

    I was in the business valuation group, which was great for building fundamental technical finance knowledge and modeling skills. Hours in bval aren't too bad outside of busy season.

    Cons

    Pay in the valuation group is awful. The vast majority of the work is post-deal and is just for financial reporting or tax compliance purposes. In other words, our work isn't that important, but managers treat everything like we're saving lives. Bval is aligned to Advisory, and Advisory is doing awfully compared to Consulting.
