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

    Pros

    Good project at some of really big companies. Very smart and dedicated team members.

    Cons

    1. Nickel dime attitude on billing/expenses
    2. Work life balance is always a struggle
    3. Be ready to navigate the 'blue-eyes' ceiling for upward mobility/ growth

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with employees regarding giving them a realistic feedback on their career growth. Try to build a more inclusive environment to help grow everyone

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent but expensive benefits, lots of PTO to counter the management initiative to burn out longer term employees. Great growth potential if you are willing to sell your soul to a partner, principle or director who has already sold their soul to their bank accounts.
    Constantly evolving technology and practices.
    This is a great opportunity to make some contacts with clients to further your future, just don't try and subscribe to the thinking it's a long term career opportunity.

    Cons

    Constant churn and burn driven by the current powers to be. Change is never fully thought out and followed through so it's sort of like swimming laps in a pool, but turning before you reach the end. Unreasonable expectations to work 65 - 90 hour weeks with no compensation beyond an occasional high priced meal.
    Upper management and C levels are just that, managers and not leaders to those in the field churning out results.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way it was

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn at a very fast pace. You have the freedom to explore a large variety of business verticals and solutions. Lots of very smart people and great networking.

    Cons

    Very poor performance rating system. Yearly reviews are very political and biased, and not about performance. Very much seems like a "good ole' boys" club in my experience. If you have the unfortunate experience of working with senior management that you do not get along with, do not have same ethical bar or even male/female dynamic, ethnic and culture background clash, you are in for a bad experience, with little opportunity for recognition or growth. You are punished for taking PTO, paternity/maternity/FML in the form of not being able to hit your metrics for the year.

    Advice to Management

    Work to create a better way to quantify the contributions that employees make. Recognize them properly, and build a more inclusive atmosphere.
