    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide variety of challenges, great smart coworkers, opportunity to learn. Fast paced and interesting. Never a dull moment. There are some truly caring and exceptional people to hang around with. Generally close to the cutting edge and it's impossible to become stale.

    Cons

    Tenure valued over talent for PPD admission. Butt kissing practically essential. Annoying minority of posers and hacks. Too many stupid "rules". Can often border on slavery and requires tremendous personal sacrifice (no weekends or holidays off if it's crunch time). Very much a "what have you done for me today" culture. Very unfair performance appraisal process: mediocre performers can get better ratings because someone feels guilty or they're being considered for promotion. It's frustrating to do a great job yet get a 2 you didn't deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Your talent management approach won't work with your now millennial dominated work force. Deloitte is doubling down on being old school with hard requirements to pay your dues and spend lots of time at grade. Some of your best people are walking out the door because you pretend that you can't do anything for them and great opportunities await outside. Practice what you preach around rewarding differentiated performance.

    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.
