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

    Pros

    The benefits are so nice. Its almost hard to find companies that give you $500 Wellness Allowance, $300 Mobile Tech Allowance, crazy amounts of Parental leave, 200+ hours of PTO, yearly bonuses/raises based on performance, and training on demand.

    They try to honor flexibility and predictability as much as possible

    Cons

    You will work for those perks. And don't know what your skillset is but it doesn't matter because you will do a bit of everything as a consultant. I really hate that. As a consultant you will work on proposals even if that's not something you want to do or have a knack for. If you are on their traditional PPD career path then this also means you have to do firm initiative (aka free work for the firm)

    If you are a technical person like me I would recommend steering clear lest you like not working tech.

    Advice to Management

    Management is generally awesome. They have been through the same crap as you and the typically understand that things come up and life happens.

    Pros

    25 days PTO, ability to work from home, travel if you're in the right industry/projects

    Cons

    Utilization is the biggest contributor to your pay increases and not all hours are always client chargeable. They say its easy to move within groups, its not at all.

    Pros

    Great teams of folks. Good benefits. Great culture at the time. Was part of a reduction in work force. Had a boss that was extremely cool

    Cons

    Politics. You are just a number to people making decisions on who to cut. My boss had zero say in whether or not I was to be let go or not.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to partner with senior client counterparts.

    Cons

    Your career is what you make of it... Mentors can help guide your career, but you need to be responsible for shaping it, including type of work, specialization, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to improve transparency around decision-making at the lowest levels, as this helps grow younger staff into future leaders.

    Pros

    You're surrounded by smart and ambitious people. Good benefits, not bean counters

    Cons

    You're evaluated on a normalized scale against your peers, long hours, lots of biz development hours

    Advice to Management

    Change your business model for federal accounts, change your utilization calculation so employees can use their PTO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good conditions, flexible time, always promoting diversity and inclusion, training and tools are available and great networking to solve most of the problems during a project. You can find great and smart people

    Cons

    Workload can be a pretty hard, it is common to find your self working 50-60 hrs x week or even weekends, stress is there most of the time, dead lines and some times lots of travel, dates can be really demanding and most of the time are already due.

    Advice to Management

    To try reduce the workload on the teams by promote a better or more realistic time line for projects, I think needs to be done since the selling process before starting the actual projects.

    Pros

    compensation, opportunities to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    work life fit shouldn't just be talked about at DU in theory but applied in real life on client projects
