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

    Pros

    From all the companies I have worked with Deloitte has the most focus on their people and developing their people into future leaders within the company.

    Cons

    Deloitte does have some heavy requirements on its employees to give back to the company in the area of business development and firm initiatives. This combined with a long commute in DC was not a good thing for me. However, Deloitte has realized a need for client focused work were you your entire time is dedicated at the client, the downside is that pay raises and promotions are not as frequent.

    Advice to Management

    We are expected to meet with our mentors within the company every two weeks to discuss issues and concerns from the employee side and the mentors can provide feedback back to us from talking with management. This allows for issues with behavior to be corrected immediately instead of someone being shocked at end of year. I like this approach and it should be kept up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote consultants to Managers/Sr Managers until they are capable and mature enough to manage people. Encourage managers to be upfront and set expectations correctly

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

    Pros

    Very employee centric. Lots of smart people. Amazing benefits (6 weeks PTO for a Manager, $500 annual fitness subsidy, nearly 3 weeks of US Holidays, training opportunities at Deloitte University, Family Leave to name a few). By far the best company I have ever worked for over. Only reason I left was to pursue an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    Didn't come across any in my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on your employees! The constant communication stream from the C-Suite and focus on employee stories on the Deloittenet home pages provided a constant reminder of how Deloitte was taking caring of employees across the world both professionally and when tragedies and national disasters impacted their personal lives.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good variety of work, diverse colleagues and leaders

    Cons

    Pay is below market until you make partner. The career path to partnership is all-consuming for many colleagues, meaning competition rather than collaboration are more strongly valued. Strong sales culture, so everyone is selling, selling, selling, sometimes disadvantaging delivery scope/timelines. Delivery talent much less valued than sales.

    Advice to Management

    Allow a greater share of profits to trickle down to non-partners in the form of competitive compensation.

    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.
