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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Compensation is fair
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    My leaders are absolutely clueless
    Most of the old-timers just hang around to retire and get their pension
    Most of the leaders have been in the company so long, they don't understand what innovation really means
     Insane politics and MDs behave childish
    No direction or vision provided by MDs
    Their yearly feedback in writing is given by a green dot in a 2x2 quadrant
    I have had the most clueless boss in my life over 15 years. I am not sure how she's reached this level and shes not the only one within the organization.
    Remote teams hardly engage with each other apart from meetings. Its like talking to strangers at times!

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a due-diligence on the leadership, especially MDs and Senior managers who have spent more than 10 years in the company and not producing any value whatsoever
    Walk the talk and take more risks with innovation, rather than thinking if you will lose your job by taking such risks

    Pros

    Deloitte has very good benefits and places emphasis on work/life balance. For Managers and above you get 5 weeks PTO. For women this is an excellent employer as they have generous mat leave benefits. Men are also accorded parental leave. Deloitte acknowledges non-traditional families so partners of the LGBT community are eligible for benefits. Lately the firm has been shutting down completely from Christmas Day to New Year's to allow practitioners to completely unplug and recharge sans guilt. When the firm exceeds it's targets all practitioners receive an extra treat like a $500 Gift Card in addition to annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Depending on your management team things can be tricky. Some Managers encourage working from home and insist that you take all your allocated PTO while some especially in the Consulting arena are most concerned with billable hours and give short shrift to work/life balance. I would encourage anyone considering employment with the firm to be upfront during the interview phase and let them know if you need to leave at 3:00PM each day for kiddie pick up. Many managers are willing to work with you on your schedule as long as the job gets done at the end of the day and an you are reachable when needed. As a working mother with young kids I was able to negotiate my schedule to work around my kids needs.
    As a firm under the jurisdiction of the SEC 401K options can be limited. We cannot invest in a firm we audit so playing the Mega Lotto is verboten.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing and rewarding good people.

    Pros

    Deloitte treats its employees like human beings with families and obligations, not commodities that can be dispensed of when they’re no longer useful for their original purpose.

    I’ve seen multiple instances in which low performing employees were given years (literally years) to improve performance and were supported with coaching and training. I’ve also seen the firm actively work to find a different position for employees where their original position just wasn’t working for them or Deloitte.

    It sounds simple, but so many companies these days dispose of employees without a second thought. Deloitte recognizes that they hired the individual in the first place because they have talent, and really goes above and beyond to make it work for both sides. This isn’t to say nobody gets fired at Deloitte, but I can guarantee you that due process was given before the axe came down.

    Cons

    - Too much administrative red tape at times.

    - Administrative processes that seemingly have no purpose
