    Pros

    great people, extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions, interesting work, over all it was a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes interns are assigned clients that are not in the city in which they are living for the summer so it takes a little away from there experience in a new city but honestly thats about it.

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Deloitte has one of the best work environments for both interns and other applicants. You have mentors and plenty of educational resources to help with your professional growth. At Deloitte, they provide great and competitive salaries, insurance, and etc. There are always rooms for promotions, but you have to work for that.

    Cons

    It is not a con for me, but it might not be the best place to work at if you are planning to work for no more than 40-hours a week. Expect to work overtime during the week and over the weekends. Also, expect to travel to meet customers or help other team in a distant state.

    "One of the best places to start your career, afterwards you need to decide for yourself if it's for you"

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

    Pros

    One of the best places to start your career
    Challenging work if you enjoy problem solving
    If you hate your project / work, there's usually still an end to it (rather than quitting if you have a regular job with the same work / boss)
    Good compensation / pension plan when you finally make it to P/PMD level
    Good for stability if you are a decent performer
    Work life balance if you are on a good project

    Cons

    Raises are probably mediocre at best
    Project delivery is the most important thing for us (and client) as consultants, but that contribution to our core business don't seem to matter as much at year end
    Lots of admin tasks taking up a significant amount of time - and only impacts negatively to your performance if you don't do them - most notably the staffing system which replaced a working system (for the end user - probably not for reporting) with a worse one
    Burning time with varying level of use of the term "Productive Time" - wait.. did I say burning time which we were not supposed to years ago?
    Firm contribution is a big part of your job, may be not so much in other parts of the firm (can't speak for all the practices) but expect to spend an extra 200 - 300 hours doing "impactful" firm activities if you are in Consulting so they don't ding you for not doing it
    Performance system was kinda broken but progressively got worse (from Supporting Success to the latest iRPM). And it's increasingly more about checking the boxes above, and then who you know (the system is broken right? so we went back to the most effective method!) and don't know. People get screwed along the way because they are not as well connected or if they are not the best at networking
    Up or out mentality when you get to the management level, we don't do a good job retaining people who are really good at doing what they do at their current level and find a place for them
    With all these points above, work-life balances, while it's there, requires you to be absolutely vocal and make sure you don't get on a bad project / stretch

    Advice to Management

    Fix the performance and compensation system or just do away with it. It's a waste of time if utilization, firm contribution, and then networking is all that matters
    Find a way to keep people who are not P/PMD or possibly even SM personality and find a way to still have them perform, contribute, and grow in the firm

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

    Pros

    If you are nice to everyone, and do decent work, you'll be fine and they will never fire you.

    Cons

    People only tend to stay because it is easy instead of challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a performance management system which actually rewards good ideas/work regardless of politics.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience fast across many functions and industries.

    Cons

    Claim collegial, but means clickish and political. It's about who you know, not just how you deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more internal mobility, to improve network/relationships, through voluntary rotations throughout careers, not just in early stages.
