    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Deloitte is very collaborative and focused on employee development. People are always striving to deliver the absolute best work to their clients.

    Cons

    As a consultant, the travel can become a bit much. This is inherent to the consulting industry though so I don't fault Deloitte for the amount I traveled.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage management to be more selective in its recruiting from both undergraduate and graduate universities. At the entry level consultant level I think there is too much disparity in talent.

    Management is lacking good leadership and a lot of ambiguity from management.

    One Team middle management should be audited on their leadership. Finances are not being properly monitored or forecasted. Barely any group team meetings.

    Felt like after 3 years I had earned an MBA - very well rounded experience that set me up for great opportunities after

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to hold partners accountable for not burning out their teams. Maybe start by implementing 360 feedback - it's 2017!
