    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Access to the best people in their fields to aid you with your projects.

    Cons

    Watch out for leadership brought in from outside Deloitte! Some of them have a slash and burn attitude and you could be out the door simply because you work under someone targeted by the new MD or partner.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you bring in from other companies to play senior leadership roles. You are giving them the power to do a lot of damage to the firm.

    Pros

    Great company to work to for.

    Cons

    Deloitte will push you to your limits and some employees may not know how to balance this pressure, I have never had an issue with this in my career, it has always pushed me to greater heights.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are hiring veteran for their own business purpose, the company is unethical, do no work here,

    Cons

    I am a veteran I have been to Iraq war, I would prefer to go back to Iraq than work with Deloitte, the name should be Deloitte Corruption LLC

    - Expectation is to have all the employee to be billiable and work more than 60hours on client
    - over charge client even for a small business
    - fool the client to spend more, unethical
    - They are violating the Dept of Labor code of conduct, if you take leave your billiable hours will be down and over all performance will be given Negative
    even if an earned PTO is taken

    Advice to Management

    Be an ethical company, not a corruption company, make your employee as priority not corruption

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company works hard to keep skill set current and relevant. They have ridged targeted learning milestones tied to receiving bonuses and compensation.

    Cons

    Don't take care of their contract workers like they could.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't appreciate being promised an 18 month contract and being release after three months simply because the client reduced their budget and you had to reassign your employees. You should try and help the people you bring on-board to find new positions, even when they aren't directly employed by Deloitte when your contracts get cut. Their contract is with your firm, not the client.

    Pros

    Competitive pay lots of PTO and tons of training opportunities. You get to work with very high level interesting clients as well.

    Cons

    Often put in difficult situations that don't ensure your success. In a manager and above level you often have to find your own projects despite what the Talent people may tell you when hired.
    They give a lot of lip service to work/life balance but still expect you to bill 50+ hours per week. If you aren't willing to do that, you won't succeed there.

    Advice to Management

    While growth and stretching is important, it is more important for new employees especially, to put them in situations where they can leverage prior experience to succeed.

    I have been working at Deloitte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with Deloitte STAC, this is probably the worse organization of Deloitte.

    Cons

    This is a very disorganized group, to give you an example - We were in a big conference room in the Chicago office and one of the Client Partner who works out of DC office come to the room and started saying bad words to a Sr. Manager for no reason in front of everyone....bad ...very bad...working in this group of Deloitte is not worth it at all.

    Advice to Management

    Very Poor leadership, lots of politics.

    I worked at Deloitte (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Deloitte can provide a person with many diverse opportunities if you seek them.
    The benefits are more vast than I realized.
    All of the tedious things that are required of you are actually good things for your career development. It's not always easy to realize when you are spread a little thin, but the extras they ask of you are worth it.
    Embrace the volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    It's a large company and can sometimes feel a little impersonal.
    Your opportunities may be limiting based on your location. I worked in multiple departments, but saw that if I really wanted to excel in the area that I preferred, I would have needed to be located in on of the larger offices.
    Deloitte needs to be more flexible in pay. HR has a tendency to pay you based on a structure that doesn't always fit. Ultimately, I left because the market offered more in both compensation (30%+ increase to leave) and opportunity to leverage my experience that I had gained while at Deloitte. I would have loved to stay, but they couldn't get offer me the opportunity I wanted in the time frame I wanted it.

    Advice to Management

    Dig deeper into your relationship with your current employees. Deloitte is such a great company, so much so that you should never lose good talent. If you're willing to give responsibility to someone that may elevate their experience, then compensate the person fairly after they've shown success and leveraged that experience. I could have been a lifer or could have exercised my talents within, if only had I been given the opportunity. Maybe next time?
