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

    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Deloitte has a great culture and is committed to the growth and development of its people. I have been a consultant my entire career and worked for 3 of the Big Four companies and Deloitte has been by far the best experience.

    Cons

    Although work life balance and flexibility and predictability are core to our culture it is difficult to actually practice. Performance expectations are very high and it is challenging at times to manage client, people and firm contribution demands.
