    Pros

    Great company culture. They have really been putting a lot into employees lately to try to retain them instead of the traditional turnover after 2 years in audit

    Cons

    BUSY SEASON; client service hours are just annoying to have to worry about all of the time; travel can be really difficult for a lot of people as it is 100% a lot of the time (however I got lucky and don't travel much)

    Advice to Management

    Less focus on utilization; more focus on quality of work

    I worked at Deloitte (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great on-boarding and training programs. Insurance and pay were wonderful. You are treated very well while traveling if you're a manager.

    Cons

    Micro managers abound and chances are you will be the only SME on your team with the other three people being 1-2 years out of college. Having to train people while under pressure for delivering tons of paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee's when they ask for help; lead by example and not by distance and email. When you provide help don't be a bully or condescending (yep? yep?) Projects seemed top-heavy.

    Continue the success of Deloitte by maintaining the wonderful culture of the company. I have nothing bad to say to management.

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

    Pros

    Very well compensated, excellent benefits, 6 weeks vacation.
    8 weeks' severance (presumably for completing 2 years of service)

    Cons

    Poor performance management, poor counselor relationships, associate fewer hours worked with poor performance.
    No due diligence from upper level management regarding decision to terminate employment after 3 years of satisfactory performance.
    Abrupt termination from the company after returning from vacation (pre-approved by manager and director).
    No communication regarding reasons except "it was a business decision".
    Culture of sucking up to leaders and no honest communication.
    No promoting from within.
    Inconsistency in who is permitted to work overtime, remote, etc.

    Advice to Management

    If I can accomplish the same amount of work in fewer hours, I am more productive, not less.
    Do not promote people who threaten employees and who have zero emotional intelligence.
    (Exact words: I can replace you any minute. I don't care if your mom is dying, I want you to be at work by 8 AM).
    You cannot expect an employee to work more hours at a client site when the client themselves disapprove of it, and then blame the employee for working fewer hours.
    You need to be up front and tell an employee why they are being terminated.
