    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Collaboration with extremely bright, driven and talented people
    Potential to acquire a lot of experience quickly because of rotation to multiple projects
    Excellent development and mentorship of entry level employees (Analysts)

    Cons

    Work/life balance is difficult to maintain, especially when trying to start a family, and particularly difficult on women
    To be staffed on challenging and interesting projects there are many times that who you know is more important than your capabilities
    Employee review process not transparent enough

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in addressing work life balance concerns for employees, which can help reduce employee turnover due to family reasons
    Employee rating and compensation approaches need more transparency
