    Reward the good workers earlier before they are lost to recruiting efforts from other companies.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Compensation is fair
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    My leaders are absolutely clueless
    Most of the old-timers just hang around to retire and get their pension
    Most of the leaders have been in the company so long, they don't understand what innovation really means
     Insane politics and MDs behave childish
    No direction or vision provided by MDs
    Their yearly feedback in writing is given by a green dot in a 2x2 quadrant
    I have had the most clueless boss in my life over 15 years. I am not sure how she's reached this level and shes not the only one within the organization.
    Remote teams hardly engage with each other apart from meetings. Its like talking to strangers at times!

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a due-diligence on the leadership, especially MDs and Senior managers who have spent more than 10 years in the company and not producing any value whatsoever
    Walk the talk and take more risks with innovation, rather than thinking if you will lose your job by taking such risks

    Pros

    Great benefits, typically friendly / collaborative culture, lots of different ways your career can go (you can rotate in and out of roles easily), very easy to transfer or work remotely if you need to

    Cons

    Very large and hard to get decisions made; largely decentralized and can feel tough to navigate; leadership can be very political

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many great colleagues. Great benefits including 401k and pension.

    Cons

    Firm is apparently reducing overhead by laying off admins (including ones with 10+, 20+ years with firm) without notice. Notice not given to people they support either. Moving clients support to remote service center in Dallas. Business needs are one thing, but when asked Directly last year if admins needed to be concerned regarding new programs, were told no.
    Normal bureaucracy full of obfuscation.

    Pros

    Good client work opportunities. Great place for entry level and new grads to learn about different industries. Great platform for growth.

    Cons

    Competitive working environment. Everyone needs to be on the top of their game all the time, which can add pressure.

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

    Pros

    PTO - very generous and easy to use if you are ok planning months ahead of time
    Training - not just technical, if you want to develop soft skills, there are opportunities
    Client Work - besides working with the largest clients, after a few years talent does take your opinion in what type of engagements you can be staffed on. If you say nothing, they will put you where ever the need is.

    Cons

    Day to Day Work-Life Balance - There are multi-week periods throughout the year where I have little balance, due to being assigned to clients with various year-end dates
    Inconsistent Management styles - given you will see this at almost any other company/firm, when I transferred to SF, I was burned/thrown under buses by managers more in less than a year working on Bay Area clients than in the 3+ years I worked in a mid-west office.
    Raises/Bonuses - the ranges they give to show are useless as its blended for all levels (consultants through SMs).

    Cons

    - Work life integration
    - Lack of control over project selection
    - Limited visibility into timeline for career growth
    - Compensation is limited/not consistent when compared to relevant companies in the bay area

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for internal mobility

    Pros

    They offer you good opportunities to get ahead and advance your career. Work with many different teams and in many different industries. Work with many people your same age.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be tough. Work has a lot of travel involved, with travel happening around the country. It can be tough to stay on top of local and personal things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to maintain an understanding with employees. It is important to keep communication open between different teams and to make it feel like there is good connection. Learning and development are a large part of this job.
