    Pros

    The company allows flexibility on assignments. I'm a second year employee and I am able to work from home a couple times per week.

    Cons

    The newest version of the performance management system is not great. They tried to make it more transparent, but all it did was confuse the staff.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Deloitte is a great place to start a career. You will learn a tremendous amount about your field. No matter your role, you are pushed to learn and develop quickly, and you'll get really great professional experience that is highly valuable in the marketplace.

    - You get to know a lot of really fantastic, really smart, hardworking, genuine people. I have made a lot of meaningful connections here that will stick with me forever, both professionally and personally.

    - The perks and benefits are pretty great. PTO is generously accrued, if you're traveling you can rack up hotel and travel points, there's a pretty good wellness reimbursement program (and lots of other good benefit programs, many underutilized), and most teams are pretty flexible around working wherever you need to (home, office, travel, etc.) and crafting a working schedule that accommodates personal life.

    Cons

    - You will work extremely hard. Because of the pyramid staffing model (partners at the top, more managers in the middle, and more staff at the bottom) there is always more work out there than people to do all of the work. This can stretch people thin if they don't take control of managing their schedules and work load. Especially the best people, who are always the most in demand.

    - It's a massive company with so so many different services offered, it can be very difficult and overwhelming to understand what other departments and service lines do, and effectively network with professionals in those other services. And as you progress in your role, making the right connections becomes extremely important for your ability to be successful. It takes much more than to simply perform your job duties well in order to succeed and continue moving up through the firm.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a better balance in the staffing model between the business need and a professional's goals. We have so many excellent, smart, talented people, it's a shame, and to everyone's detriment, when they leave because they couldn't find the right fit for them. Our firm does so many different things, I really believe there's a right opportunity out there for everyone. But the firm needs to do a better job of supporting professionals to find and take advantage of those opportunities.

    Pros

    Prestige of working on at a Big 4 and working with extremely talented individuals. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Current leadership is focusing on the short term rather than focusing on the long term. Currently they focus on working everyone to death in the us and outsourcing as much to India to realize better margins.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the long term goals of the organization
