    Pros

    Health and fitness subsidy, very smart coworkers, sweat equity sweat equity sweat equity. I would have never learned as much as I did in such a short time without the experience that 3 years at Deloitte gave me. And the pros of putting this company on my resume are second to none.

    Cons

    I worked all of the time and my personal life suffered. I didn't handle stress very well and so this job broke me in some ways. But for the right kind of person it can be very enriching.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure I really have any advice for management. I'm glad I'm not a partner. Industry was a better fit for me in the end but I'm glad I started at Deloitte.

    Pros

    Flexibility is uniquely suited to client service. Work from everywhere. Do what you love. Feel supported. Atmosphere of inclusion. Plenty of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Long hours, deadlines--sometimes conflicting. Not for those who cannot work independently and as a team. No long-term incentive until PPD level.

    Advice to Management

    Luggage allowance would be nice

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Only Pro = Good Pay and Benefits

    Cons

    Culture strongly favors consultant's hired from college over experienced hires. In my experience an experienced hire at Deloitte tenure is a little over one year.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and less about internal politics

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits are great but be prepared to not have much of a personal life. Great continuing education.

    Cons

    Travel is a nightmare these days and it's a 100% requirement. Long hours, lots of weekend work, little sleep, away from family a lot, and stress stress stress... and your partner better be able to handle it. By the time you add up the 80+ hours a week and divide it by the pay.....

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

    Pros

    Improving work-life balance through DC's "Flexibility and Predictability" initiative, which aims to reduce travel (e.g. work from home sometimes) and improve work life balance

    Cons

    Focus is often on selling work on necessarily helping the client
    Reviews are very politically and does not necessarily represent the quality of client work
    If you get stuck with a bad manager/project, it's tough to get out of

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve work/life fit
    Rethink the performance rating system
    Improve the was information can be shared within the organization so that you don't from scratch every project
