    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Deloitte has endless opportunities to advance your career, learn new things, and get involved in mentorship/volunterism.

    Cons

    It's all about your network and who you know. If you are willing to work long-hours you can probably get paid/rewarded for it.

    Advice to Management

    The company is so large it's hard to make anyone feel like anything other than a number. Don't make senior staff counselors. They are too busy and basically worthless yet have such an impact in your career advancement.

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

    Pros

    Training, and opportunities to grow are in abundance. Pay is pretty good as well as recognition which results in additional monetary compensation.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult as you get older and more responsibility is added to your personal life such as growing your family or pursuing other opportunities to support your personal happiness. This company reviews performance by comparing you to your peers with no consideration to the fact that everyone has different circumstances. Builds a stressful environment with overly competitive peers, backstabbing and premature promotions for friends of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Measure performance on a set criteria instead of comparing peers. The culture is dangerous and not sustainable for millennials. You will lose your talent faster than ever before if you don’t start thinking about building a more healthy culture fostered on collaboration instead of competition.

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

    Pros

    1. Benefits are amazing.
    2. Pay is pretty good.
    3. It's a great company to have on your resume.
    4. There are lots of highly intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    1. Networking - This is essential in order to get on good projects, get promoted, and get the amazing opportunities that the firm is known for. I'm an introvert so I hate it.
    2. If you are really good at your job and people find out, they will use you and try to make you do wayyyyyyy more than anyone else.
    3. If you do a great job, they will not want to provide you additional help and subsequently not support you for promotion.
    4. Practitioners are assigned counselors who do not work with you on a day-to-day basis, but are there to provide mentorship, assist in networking, and present your case for performance evaluation at the end of the year. Counselors can be amazing or horrible. My experience has been horrible.
    5. Unrealistic expectations exist in terms of commitment to business development outside of client work. Many times people are working on proposals late nights, weekends, and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to make an above-average salary and have a variety of projects, the firm may be for you. If you have a family that you like to see and spend time with, AVOID.
