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

    Pros

    - Loads of learning
    - Good work benefits
    - Lot of projects to network your way in to
    - Great trainings available

    Cons

    - Politics
    - Fixed career path and poor performance management system which does not determine the quality of work you are doing
    - Managers want to manage without knowing what the ground work is!

    Advice to Management

    If everyone gets promoted from consultant to senior consultant in 2 years, why would some people work harder than others? You need better performance management and promotion criteria

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

    Pros

    Wide breadth of work, get exposed to doing new things every day - if you like that. Deloitte Advisory does not have a very rigid practice offering structure which can give one the opportunity to work on many different things rather than doing the same thing every day.

    Cons

    As there is no rigid practice structure, key to success is networking. Need to be able to play the game and leverage. Technical excellence and hard work alone will not guarantee success.

    Advice to Management

    There is merit in meritocracy.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salary is fair. Working with people who know their craft is truly great. It's a symbiotic relationship which helps you up your game

    Cons

    Recently, though, there's not enough knowledge in the new staff we hire which requires lots of hand-holding, training, and turnover

    Advice to Management

    Better job screening Don't be in such a rush to grow. We're losing touch with seasoned staff who are disengaging

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has some decent programs for high performers to gain additional development and experience outside of traditional client service.

    The firm invests a lot in technology and training and Deloitte University is great.

    Cons

    Probably similar in all the Big4, but level Trump's everything. Professionals are treated like children by those in higher roles, unless you find a great team that you can work with for your entire career.

    Performance management/evaluation process sucks, even after they reinvented it a couple years ago. There's no transparency.

    Lots of administrative/firm obligations on top of project work and client service.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation can't be limited to firm operations and client service. Get creative in solving the cultural problems and start at the top.

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

    Pros

    Love many of the people I work with and see some visionary leadership.

    Cons

    No work life balance even in digital in the untraditional model if you want to be perceived as performing well and rewarded. No predictability makes it tough to have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Work on how you support experienced hires. Make this a place where people with families want to work so you stand out in a now crowded landscape. Promote PPMDs who exemplify the culture you want - give SM level folks a reason to want to be promoted.

    Pros

    Great experience, work on the biggest deals and really learn the ins and outs of corporate tax. Very talented co-workers. Low overall hours requirement, but see below.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. You can never unplug and be off the clock. It does not matter if it is a weekend or holiday, people will always ask you to work.
