    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn. Work with some wicked smart people. Involved in significant client initiatives

    Cons

    Company has gotten too big and people are treated more and more like cogs than people. Hard to network with groups set up nationally rather than locally/regionally. Something missing from the current wave of Partners/Directors - they were raised to know how to execute/follow direction and many struggle to think strategically. Staff development is no longer an apprenticeship model, more a mimic and figure it out as you go along model

    Advice to Management

    Take a greater interest in developing your staff than in this year's unit share price. While technically still a Partnership, the size of the company has required less entrepreneurship and more corporate structure. Stop thinking you can have your own 'slush funds' and stop worrying about individual legacy and focus on the longer term health of the overall company - both employee and structure related
