    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    - Looks good on CV
    - Great new agile offices
    - Plenty of mobility opportunities if you know the right people
    - Reimbursement of studies

    Cons

    - A lot of cuts as unrealistic targets were set for 2020. It's going to be grim moving forward.
    - The bonuses are calculated differently every year so that no one knows how they come up with the number. Basically, if Toronto had a bad year, the whole practice has a bad year. This is despite the fact that your team might have outperformed... doesn't matter.
    - Performance reviews are based on the whims of your partner. Each partner is the spokesperson for their team members. If your partner doesn't think much of you, you'll never get that promotion despite the fact that you do more than other people in other teams. Note: the whole performance review process was changed this year. Hopefully it gives everyone a fair chance.
    - Partners have NO say on your salary. It's decided by people who have never met you. So if you're a new higher, negotiate for a high salary! If not, they'll always keep you in the low ranges of your level and you can never negotiate once you're in.
    - Extremely long and tedious to change teams.
    - Best practices are NOT shared. Also, same teams in different offices will work differently and deliver different products for the same job! Extremely difficult to find templates (if there are any).
    - No IT service. They use Service Now and cut a lot of staff. When I left they were working on one month old tickets. There is NO service.
    - In some teams you're expecting to work until 6:30-7:00. It looks bad if you leave at 5:00.
    - Some teams are still very much a boys club. I was sometimes asked to "fix" a Power Point presentation because I was a girl and therefore must be good with visual presentations. It's hard to stand out or fit in if you don't have that cocky attitude which seems to impress many people in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    I was told that in the past new employees were all sent to a training center to learn about the company and best practices. This is now gone. It would be worth it to invest a minimum in training new hires. Also, it's very discouraging to hear every quarter that we didn't hit the targets. Maybe they're set a bit too high!? The 2020 targets seem very unrealistic.

    Pros

    The staff is very young and the atmosphere between the coworkers is most of time great

    Cons

    We worked a lot, sometimes the week end the team spent the whole Sunday at the office.
    And depending on the client, we could finish very late like until midnight or we could leave earlier but we had to finish our work at home.
    Heavy workload and a lot of pressure, I saw a few people from the junior staff cried.
