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

    Pros

    Firm focuses on having consultants not only work on strategy, but also, on implementation as well. At Deloitte, you will be working on both strategy and operations and you will be accountable and responsible for the recommendations that you give. I think in the long-term, the experience that you gain from doing both strategy and implementation is invaluable. This is a major difference when comparing to other firms such as McKinsey, Bain, or BCG where they try to separate people that work on strategy from operations.

    Cons

    The firm is very large and the experience that you have can vary greatly depending on luck. Depending on what client projects are available, which senior managers need resources, and who you meet when you first join, it can either be an amazing experience or a negative one if unlucky.

    Advice to Management

    The greatest advantage that Deloitte Consulting has is access to other branches of the firm and in having the same consultants work on both strategy and implementation so that they are able to learn from mistakes with higher stakes and develop into better professionals than at other firms that just focuses on strategy or implementation or tries to segment the two.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to various clients and high levels of responsibility at early level! Supportive and fun coworkers and great benefits if you take advantage of them (vacation/health stipend)

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes extend beyond typical "busy seasons". Really need to make business case if you want to do an additional assignment outside normal client load.

    Advice to Management

    Spread work more evenly, less emphasis on exceeding hours goal.

    Pros

    - Potential for great learning opportunities is high.
    - Competitive pay and benefits
    - Work with some of the best that the industry has to offer

    Cons

    - Taking all of the PTO offered can be difficult
    - Follows industry norms in requiring long hours during certain seasons, can depend on team/office expectations

    Advice to Management

    Clearer promotion/salary expectations and transparency. $$ talks are fairly hush hush, and creates an atmosphere of dissatisfaction when people feel like their raise/bonus/promotion was less than expected.
