    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

    Cultivate a more inclusive environment for underrepresented minorities, push for more work-life balance with rotations from travel to local projects, and ensure that employees get on projects that align with their skills and development plan.

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

    Pros

    (FOR CONSULTING)
    One of the best IT support and handling I've known and worked with (even relating to other people's experience with competitors)
    Easy to develop yourself there and robust training (online and virtual)
    Professional development (soft skills) is wonderful
    Its easy to have a work family here. People tend to look out for each other
    You sucked in your last project? If you're not fired and depending on your office, its not hard to do better and start on a clean slate (i was there)

    Cons

    VERY VERY people oriented. Which isn't bad, but Deloitte is an odd mix of a people-cracy and meritocracy. It's not for everyone. You must do well at work and at relating to people
    The performance review system is HIGHLY unbalanced and very subjective. If you don't have the best relationship with your reviewer, you're toast. If you do, then you well off...Which is the same everywhere, but @ deloitte only 4 questions are used to determine this at "snapshots" and they are very, very subjective. There's no way to defend why YOU the reviewed person are where you are. Also it's not a 2 way review and you cannot see your reviews. It's weird
    Sometimes they hire without knowing what they are going to do with the hire. Basically hire based on skill not work need (from my experience talking with new hires)

    It's easy to be left out of the loop and then never recover from being left out (like an inside clique)

    I'd love to come back to this later...I have my issues with the firm

    Advice to Management

    You keep harping about "utilization" yet you guys hire very qualified people and they end up leaving because you don't have where to put them or you promise to put them somewhere and internal politics get in the way. I am not a new hire, but new hires who aren't campus recruits should be treated better.

    Please overhaul the review system. Its unfair and highly subjective.DPME (the old 2 way street review system) was tedious, but at least it was fair by getting to see the substantiation behind decisions make about your life at Deloitte. You can do better.

    Keep up the good work in other areas. I really do think this is a great firm (I know it is cuz I've worked with 2 of the Big 4) I overall think this is a cool place to work and practitioners definitely leave being positively changed people.
