    Pros

    - Career development like nothing else; amazing projects, deep exposure, and accelerated learning. You won't find a better start to your career than in management consulting and Deloitte is the top of the Big 4 for a reason. The learning is fast paced but you'll become 5x more seasoned than your peers who went into industry.
    - Brand name recognition. Deloitte on your resume allows you to go anywhere. This is because from the very first project you'll be thrown into meetings with senior leaders and executives. You won't be treated like a college intern and the learning curve is steep.
    - Salary. You start at a much higher salary than your peers who went into industry with an accelerated career track. Raises and bonuses are generous depending on individual and firm performance (10% +).
    - Growth opportunities. They push you to advance. There is no such thing as a 50 year old Consultant at Deloitte. Grow, learn, and advance or leave. This is hit or miss depending on your personality.
    - Travel. Both a positive and negative. You'll travel around the country and even have opportunities for global deployment.
    - Brilliant colleagues. Seriously. Stanford, MIT, UCLA, Berkeley, USC, Duke, you name it. Deloitte has surgeons, nurses, PhDs, engineers, etc. Lazy and stupid don't survive here very long. I've had the absolute pleasure of working with some of the most brilliant minds.

    Cons

    - Intensity. Consulting is industry on STEROIDS. Work/life balance can be poor, you're on call all the time and traveling Mon-Fri if not more days. You're expected, in addition to client work, to help with internal initiatives like proposals, engagement letters, and client pursuits.
    - Inflexibility. There is no movement in Deloitte to different industries and specialties once you've been on a few projects unless there's a business need. It's not like changing majors in college, there has to be justification. Due to this you can get stuck in a vertical you don't want to stay in-- choose wisely when accepting a job offer.
    - Certain colleagues can be unpleasant depending on where in Deloitte you are. This goes with any huge organization -- align yourself with people who share your work style and personality.
    - Projects are not your choice. Partners will sell work that have staffing needs and sometimes you'll be staffed on something not as exciting. Be sure to network internally as much as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Work with staff to better align projects with their career goals and allow more movement between industries and specializations. It's better to allow people to pursue new interests and industries than to lose them to other firms.

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

    Pros

    -Ability to work with people your own age (mid 20s)
    -You learn and grow as a professional
    -You're thrown into a lot of situations, but you figure out how to make it work. Also, you're never thrown into anything you can't handle
    -Benefits are FANTASTIC (5 weeks PTO, health insurance costs are super low, 100% Paid Family Leave available)

    Cons

    -A lot of your progression and success in the company can depend on who you work with and whether they like you or not
    -Hours are long (but that's a given)

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

    Pros

    Flexibility for some tax consultants. Good starting salary if you have a Masters

    Cons

    Management is disconnected with lower level consultants, promoting unqualified individuals while highly qualified get a 2k raise for their hard work.
    Don't expect equality or fairness. Networking with the right people will get you further than working hard or meeting charge hour expectation.
    Most jobs going to India to cut cost, soon out of a job.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people and reward according to merit. Take care of your people and they will take care of your clients.
    Do not pay new hires out of college more than current experienced staff.
    Cut down on all the programs that make random partner leaders of this and that, use those extra bonuses to reward the staff who actually do the work.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is great!

    Cons

    Management is lacking good leadership and a lot of ambiguity from management.

    Advice to Management

    One Team middle management should be audited on their leadership. Finances are not being properly monitored or forecasted. Barely any group team meetings.
