    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will not find smarter people anywhere else, except other Big4 firms. The opportunities to learn on the job are tremendous. There is a chance at world travel, depending on the client. The experience will teach you so much more than just how to serve a client; it will teach you about yourself - who and what you are.

    Cons

    After 150+ years (which they brag about), the business model hasn't changed. Everyone, including Partners, is measured against "chargeability". I saw another post on Glassdoor that implied how this contributes to bad behavior. It's particularly true at DC, since they are not truly relationship driven; they are more project driven. A good career strategy is to begin at DC and then look to move over to DT for a while. Also, adjust your expectations about making partner. You've got to put up with A LOT and for more than 8 years, maybe 10, to get "on deck".

    Advice to Management

    For goodness sakes, listen and learn from your Millennials! Also, you're smart enough to keep Fortune Global 100 from making bad business decisions, yet haven't yet improved on the consulting business model? (It's more than staff augmentation) Also, why is there still a high degree of complaining about work-life-balance?

    Pros

    Fun and friendly atmosphere with good amount of training and mentoring. Deloitte is a good place to start ones career. The senior management is generally supportive and some amount of mentoring is provided to new employees.
    Deloitte also has an outstanding package of benefits. It includes health care, paid time-off programs, disability benefits, and retirement investment plans. And that's just for starters. Because of their commitment to work/life management, Deloitte also offers flexible work arrangements and several employee assistance programs
    It is also a very inclusive organization with people from different backgrounds and cultures. The Quarterly Staff Meetings are an example of how Deloitte appreciates and rewards its employees.

    Cons

    stressful and long working hours

    Advice to Management

    communicate effectively and motivate

    Pros

    They have good pay and good benefits. They are relatively good about work/life balance, although it leans more towards work than life. However, they do make an effort to let you leave early or take time off or work from home if you request it. The on-board training is very thorough for a new hire.

    Cons

    Sometimes the senior management does not listen to people below them. The midyear and year end rating system is extremely bad, basically giving the 30%-80& percentile performers the same rating.

    Advice to Management

    They should be confident in their decisions, and stand up for their employees. Micromanaging isn't good, but they should keep some sort of rapport between everyone else on the project.
