    Pros

    Pays high, but you work a ton of hours for it. So, per hour, you aren't actually paid as well.

    Cons

    A lot: 60+ hour work weeks, bad clients, travel, etc.

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

    Pros

    -Well-known “Big Four” Consulting firm prestige
    -Great place to start a career

    Cons

    -No direction or support
    -Highly political environment
    -Experienced hires are shunned by “campus hires”
    -All the great things you read about Deloitte are only true for MBA hires that come in as interns
    -I read similar reviews and thought I’d be able to navigate the politics and I am sorely mistaken. If you have a good reputation with your current employer, do not damage your career by joining this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful about placing people into jobs that match their background and experience. If there are no projects that match their skills in the pipeline, then don’t hire them. All the Senior Managers complain that the bench is too thin, but people are sitting around for several months without being staffed.
