    Pros

    Deloitte offers its employees great career development opportunities, including many resources to teach you to be everything you can be.

    Cons

    You will find yourself swimming in what I think of as shark-infested waters, with few you can trust. There are multiple parallel efforts going on due to competition.

    Pros

    inexperienced team members get exposed to many parts of project management
    work with generally smart people

    Cons

    at executive level, managing extra curriculars is like having a demanding part time job
    going from one project to another is completely based on relationships

    Pros

    - You learn a ton in a short period of time
    - Many benefits to working at a huge firm. It's not like a start up where you get free lunch everyday, but I would say you get a nice lunch at least once a week. During busy season all dinners are paid for and sometimes lunch for the whole week as well.
    - You get to work with really smart people that have a lot to offer in terms of knowledge and experience.
    - Depending on how proactive you are, you can work on a variety of different clients from large SEC clients to small private clients.
    - The opportunity for advancement is there. As long as you're doing a good job, you will systematically keep moving up. There are also opportunities outside of audit which you can pursue. One thing to note about opportunities outside of audit is that they make it seem like it's an easy switch, but it's not. It's actually very difficult. It can be done but you have to be highly rated and the timing has to be right.

    Cons

    - The hours are way too long for the amount of pay. The hourly rate ends up being pretty low when you calculate it using your actual hours worked.
    - Some of the partners/managers only care about the bottom line. Although the firm as a whole says one thing, the individual partners are really what determine your experience at the firm. This could go either way depending on who you're working with. Watch out if you get stuck with someone who only thinks about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Even with the large amounts of cons, I still value my time at Deloitte and everything I learned. I'm glad to have had the experience. One thing I wish they changed is that the tone at the very top sounds like music to my ears, but sadly it never trickles down to the individual teams. Implementing a system of holding partners/managers accountable for not following the rules would be greatly beneficial to the firm.

    Pros

    Good place for those recent grads or those looking to get their foot in the door in IT.

    Cons

    Not for those looking for challenge and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Great work-life balance, and wonderful benefit. But promotion and evaluation process leaves much to be desired.

    Pros

    Every day is a chance to learn something new
    You have a chance to make an impact at a national level
    When a project is good- it is very, very good, it really depends upon your team
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Management by exception seems to be the rule.
    It can be very difficult to play to your strengths- passing on any "opportunity" can result in under utilization resulting in a poor performance rating- so it is hard to navigate to work that truly fits your talents and interests.
    You are constantly being judged in a very competitive setting. Some people thrive on this, others not so much. So you need to think, before you join, if this will work well for you.
    Work- life balance means that work is your life

    Pros

    flexible
    Salary is okay
    Benefits are great

    Cons

    Too much politics, you have to aim to be liked by many or it will be hell for you.
    Sometimes your evaluations are not based on you work but on managers "personal Feelings" about you.
    Everyone does not have a fair chance to prove their selves.
    There is a disconnect with Management and staff.
    Very hard to get a transfer to another dept.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff and the way how work is distributed.

    Pros

    Work is intense which means great learning. It's depends on project. I worked with smartest people and had the career best learning curve. I improved technically and inter personally.

    Cons

    Disgusting pay, very poor work life balance, high demanding projects, dancing to client music. Less employee retention and care.

    They provide health benefits like gym membership but ironically there is no time to do that.

    Advice to Management

    Start fresh graduates with a decent salary...otherwise they are going to leave. Do not make it like one more Indian service based company where people are made to slog taking off their personal time.
