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

    Pros

    Vast network of knowledgeable professionals
    High-paced environment that encourages growth and learning
    Opportunities to ascend the corporate ladder
    Friendly colleagues who are always willing to help

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain work/life balance during busy season
    Work processes can be hindered by bureaucratic policies
    Management politics are kept under wraps in the background
    Easy to burn out from constant work, emails, meetings, and phone calls

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more transparent about workplace issues instead of giving the "standard corporate answers" that people want to hear. This would increase trust, potentially reveal other issues that need to be addressed, and prevent gossip/hearsay that is inaccurate.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good learning and project opportunities. Great Brand. Top clients.

    Cons

    Have to appease too many people in the management - You cannot keep everybody happy. You cannot jump from one technology to another unless Management (at least 5 PPDs !!) is really happy with you. Higher ups can say anything which goes against professional etiquettes and if you say something against it comes in your performance appraisal or goes against the concept of networking or maintaining relationships. With the new iRPM system one can only get feedback from his higher up and cannot write what all he/she has done all throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    respect people who have contributed to the firm for many years in one technology. Think of people's careers when making decisions about merging or separating technologies (for god sake it is not strategy consulting) for marketing needs. Consider people who have contributed to the firm for many years as important and help them in their careers.
