    I worked at Deloitte (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience, room for growth, companies often recruit accountants strictly based on if they have worked for the Big 4

    Cons

    There are some very long hours from December through April. Usually worked between 60-70 hours a week. Hourly pay would be nice during these months

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

    Pros

    There are some really sharp people here--top of the class super-achievers. And many of them are nice, gracious, decent human beings.

    Cons

    There are many consultants and managers here who would throw you under the bus if it helped them to deflect blame from themselves and/or from their own bad decisions. To succeed you need to be a "type A", and you really must find a champion IN YOUR SILO OR PRACTICE who is at least two steps above you, truly believes in you, and will speak boldly on your behalf. Once you find that person, then you need to request him or her to be your career counselor (manager). If your career counselor doesn't believe in you, see potential in you, and speak up for you, then you will not last very long. All that needs to happen is for your career counselor to faintly under-praise you, understating your skills with a lack of enthusiasm at annual ranking meetings and your career will take a tailspin (unless they have too much billable work to handle and you remain a revenue source). And they drink a LOT--that may be a plus for some, but a minus for many. So if you are working there or just interviewing there and you feel like you don't fit in, then interview with small to mid-size consulting firms that actually know their employees' names and skills.

    Advice to Management

    Behave as ethically as you expect your employees to behave. (HINT: Watch your own ethics videos!) If you need to lay off a lot of IT consultants due to lack of work, be honest & call it a RIF & treat it as such, instead of playing mind games with your employee's by trying to hide it and laying folks off one by one over several months and then telling your former employees that it's a "performance discharge" when in fact they were getting passing performance ratings on their projects, and their only "performance" issue was that they were on the bench because you hired consultants faster than your sales team could sell enough work to keep them busy.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people at Deloitte are a cut above the rest. Great colleagues and even better friends. Deloitte's recruiting methodology identifies high potential people with the right temperament for the job.

    Cons

    High and sometimes unreasonable expectation. Deloitte expects practitioners to lead and participate in extensive extra curricular activities.

    Partner process is grueling and at times feels like a crapshoot.

    Pros

    Deloitte has a great compensation package. I worked there on a short-term program, and they took care of all my accommodations during that period.

    Cons

    Sometimes there work is too much, as it happens at every big four firms, although they've been implementing changes to improve this issue for all level professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on such work-life balance programs. There has been a difference and professionals notice that.

    Pros

    Starting Pay is higher compared to the other big four, flexibility is part of their culture and there's plenty of advantage to take and have a work life balance.

    Cons

    Crappy raises, avenge of 3% if performing at level. Culture does not promote inclusion and it's easy to feel disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a more inclusive culture.
