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

    Pros

    Culture is great and managers and execs truly care about their staff and support you. Everyone seems to get along well, no cliques or silo type mentality. Teaming is great- learning and development is encouraged, and bonding and fun events are natural and- fun! Not pushed on you or fake. Good balance and flexibility.

    Cons

    Work hard/play hard mentality. But flexible and paid time off, bonus, and culture outweigh any long work weeks if/when driven by clients.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and keep the bar high when hiring- which keeps new hires Surrounded by great peers and managers and keeps the talent bar high.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career. If you can make it to upper levels of management (i.e. Partner, Managing Director), compensation is extremely high and the pension program takes care of you for life.

    Cons

    Early on in your career, hours are very high and compensation is well below market value causing high rates of turnover

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Flexibility, smart coworkers, challenging, and PTO benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    Training from teams can be spotty as far as the quality and attention for you to succeed. The busy season hours can play a toll on family and personal life. You work at the pace of your team not at the pace of your personal style. The harder you work = the more work you get.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to have lower staff evaluate and critique seniors and managers so that there is feedback from both sides.

    Pros

    Control, freedom, and client access in a consultancy is way better than at an agency. No inherent hierarchy. Get to work in a wide rage of industries and technologies. Finally have job security.

    Cons

    The work is only digital so I do miss more holistic brand projects. Working for Deloitte as a creative involves a lot of corporate weirdness and Senior Manageto are nightmares!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop underpaying the creatives compares to the other consultants!!!!!

    Pros

    Nice brand to have on your resume

    Cons

    The most horrendous place to work:
    - They have a “model” of how your career should look like - and any deviations are not tolerated (eg everyone is expected work and “detail review”.. only senior managers and above are given the resources and flexibility to do business development)
    - Raises are super low - top performers only get 6-7% in a “good year”. My current firm gives 8-10% for average performers.
    - People with terrible personalities are absolutely tolerated and loved. Managers and above who perform mediocre work and make people leave are much appreciated; staff complaints about these “managers” are never heard.
    - Upper management is too stacked up, so promotions are even slower - it used to take 2-3 years to make manager, now they have intentionally made it 3-4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people.... get their honest feedback and work on improving your culture. Most of your people are only staying because of your brand, not because they like working there.
