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

    Pros

    I've been fortunate to have had really good opportunities throughout my time at Deloitte. I can confidently say that every project I've worked on offered ample learning opportunities and fascinating subject matter. This may not necessarily be the case for all who join the firm -- it is large and diverse. Having good support and positioning from the start has helped greatly.

    Cons

    I know full-well that Deloitte can run you through the mill and spit you out downstream tired and drenched in frustration. The likelihood of such a result depends largely on where you've been positioned in the firm and who your immediate partners are.

    While the firm extols itself on how flat it is (there are only 6 ranks bottom to top) this increases the internal politics to sometimes byzantine levels. It can feel like a game of thrones as different "kingdoms" within the firm vie for human resources and clients. But this can also enable smaller players more leverage and more options than you might otherwise encounter in more traditional corporate structures.

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

    Pros

    I was a consultant so this review is based of off that.

    If you love traveling and being on the road, this is the job for you. Alternative travel benefit is awesome. Salary is awesome. Working with new people is always great.

    Cons

    If you aren't a fan of sleeping in a hotel room every night and you like the comfort of your own home, then this job is NOT for you.
    If you like to workout at your own gym, cook your own meals, have your own life... then this job is NOT for you. When you travel and are on the road so much, you don't have a life. You are a workhorse for the company, which is fine., but at a certain point, that gets old and all you want to do is feel like you have some sort of a life outside work.

    Advice to Management

    Wokr life balance. Allow consultants to work form home more and you will have happier employees.

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

    Pros

    A cut-throat, non-stop work environment that develops toughness.
    An unpredictable performance management system that keeps employees alert and on their toes.
    Extra hurdles for minorities, experienced hires and women, motivating them to push for new levels of professional excellence.
    Limited access to cutting-edge technology, encouraging employees to be especially resourceful, patient and tenacious.
    Incompetent senior managers and disengaged partners, ideal for developing an independent, entrepreneurial mindset.

    Cons

    No downsides at all. A great place to work!
