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

    Pros

    - Fantastic team effort. Never feel like you have to tackle things alone
    - Great PTO
    - Flex spending account for wellness related activities

    Cons

    - Long hours at time
    - Can feel very competitive with those around you
    - Getting to the upper management level is a challenge

    Advice to Management

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


  2. "Great professional services organization"

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Deloitte's San Francisco office in the audit practice. The office does a great job of hiring a wide variety of backgrounds but overall good people, leading to a great office culture. Employees are given responsibility early on, especially in the audit practice - as a "senior" you're partially responsible for running a small team.

    Cons

    The organization is so large meaning there is red tape and sometimes arduous processes to get things done. This is likely how all of the big 4 firms operate, though

    A great structure to learn fast

    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.

  8. "Good company to start a consulting career"

    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.

    Pros

    People. The professionalism and the investments in education and personnel investment are outstanding.

    - Limited visibility into timeline for career growth

    Provide more opportunities for internal mobility

    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).
