    Pros

    The people are really nice and laid back. You will have an awesome resume builder and work with a great group of talented young individuals. They care about your promotions and how much you're learning. However, they also care about your personal life and how satisfied you are with your job. That is reall nice and reassuring. Also, the people are Deloitte aren't nerds or stuck up like some ppl at the other firms which makes it a really nice place to work. Finally, we know how to party and have free time but that doesn't consume our day. In the end, we're still accountants and you can't forget that.

    Cons

    The hours during busy season. I'm not too crzy about the office either. Not alot of sunlight enters the center of the office where the cubilces are because the managements offices surround the windows. I'd like more travel opportunties with tax too. But overall, I can't say too much negative stuff about Deloitte because there isn't any.

    Advice to Management

    We need a new office and better bonuses...more like the ones Investment Bankers get. We are compensated fairly but I think that management could do a better job at increasing the bonuses, etc. The salaries are legit right now.

    Pros

    Great place to work with great people and great clients. It's also a place that you can work as hard as you want or as little as you want. The harder you work, though, the more you are appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    You can get caught up in the over demand for the organization's services. If you're not careful, you can work everyday. Don't let that happen to yourself but do step up when necessary. You will not be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to right size and scale back the utilization requirements. They are too high in certain markets.

    Pros

    You get great experience and leadership opportunities are prevalent. The pay is good. There are lots of organizations you can join to feel connected. You are in charge of your own career. You have the opportunity to somewhat run your schedule as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Bad luck with getting bad clients. Not all managers are good. The reasons I identified as good reasons to work at Deloitte are based on the assumption that you get a good manager. My experiences so far have been positive. There is a political aspect to Deloitte that you must deal with as well.

    Advice to Management

    Look at scheduling people more based on what they are interested in.

    Pros

    The company is very committed to its employees. Interns are treated just like full-time staff and given plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a big company and as an intern you are competing against 20-plus other qualified candidates for a full time position.

    Pros

    The Deloitte culture is fun and the people are great to work with. We work on significant client issues so the work we do has great impact.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel, as there is with any major consulting firm. There is a great deal of significance placed on internal firm activities in addition to the demands of client work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the bureaucracy as much as possible. Train managers to focus on efficiency as teams spend too much time in redundant efforts for little added value.

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

    Pros

    Career development: ample training, many projects
    Allowed me to get into a new line of work upon asking
    Time and attention and great career advice from Partners
    Partners and Sr. Managers care about their people and want to develop them
    HIre older, more experienced people which clients appreciate.
    Teams work well together.

    Cons

    Constant travel
    If you're not a partner in 10 years, you're out. This is much longer than the others...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're doing it quite well.

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

    Pros

    Some of the brightest folks I have every worked with. Good pay, good leaders, good benefits, good work life balance, and climbing the charts for almost every ranking in the country. Number 1 or 2 in every area we choose to play.

    Cons

    Most of the folks here have a pretty solid personality that fits the culture but there are some complete goofballs that slip through the cracks. The arrogance is oozing from some folks. This typically comes from the 'top tier mba' hires that come in as senior consultants.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a good job. Money is more fun than events.

    Pros

    -Good compensation, lots of training material available and flexible working environment

    Cons

    -Being such a huge firm, management could give little more personal attention to their consultants. I worked their for 5 years and always had an above average performance review, but the offer they made when i was leaving was not even worth considering,

    Advice to Management

    management could give little more personal attention to their consultants, especially considering we are the people generating revenue for them.
