    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Great place with employee perks, good flexible work environment.

    Cons

    No concise feedback system despite the processes put in place, no respect for staff despite the rhetoric on talent retention, no consideration about retaining an employee due to internal politics/poor budget planning. (Disclaimer: this is not a case of sour grapes but to highlight how the employment termination could have been better handled)

    Advice to Management

    If you no longer need an employee, have some decency to inform the person with respect and professionalism.

    I worked at Deloitte (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, PTO and networking opportunities. Deloitte is a great place to start your career and build a network. During training, you'll meet individuals from other offices. The camaraderie is a truly amazing aspect of having the experience of working with your start class of 70 or so other individuals your age.

    Cons

    Although the PTO is fantastic, you do need to book it pretty far in advance - sometimes 6-8 months out because once you're put on a client, it's difficult to get rotated off to go on a trip. Everyone is well aware of the hours, but be prepared that you may be put on a busy season client in the summer or fall. Make sure to communicate with management is this happens to avoid being put on busy season clients year round. Some of my colleagues got unlucky schedules their first years and had little to no time to get their CPA done. It's relatively hard to switch from one service line to another. For example, it is difficult to switch into advisory if you are in audit. Therefore, if you think you want to do advisory/M&A/Consulting, then you should start in one of those practices from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to encourage their staff to record all hours worked and reward managers for providing realistic budgets to avoid managers pressuring their associates to eat time.

    Pros

    Lots of PTO and flexibility, great benefits, awesome people, really feel like people invest in my development

    Cons

    Busy season is obviously very busy, could do more to ensure even staffing

    Advice to Management

    figure out a better way to deal with staffing; there have been too many times a job was so understaffed that they were miserable for the entire audit; this just leads to more people quitting, less staffing and more suffering for those of us that want to stay
