    I worked at Deloitte (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse culture; Good place to start a career; Lots of opportunities; Rewards self-starters; Different career paths provide some flexibility.

    Cons

    So big that's its hard to feel like your actions can make a significant impact; Lots of bureaucracy; Culture can be insular.

    Advice to Management

    The annual review process is too subjective since it sometimes rewards people who are self-promoters rather than people who have made the biggest or most important contributions.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, excellent pay, many project opportunities to choose from. Cutting edge technology. Can perform many roles. Well known as number one Big 4 firm.

    Cons

    Extremely cliquish. If you don't know anyone be prepared to rot on bench and then get chewed out about utilization being low. Work life balance is pitiful. Plenty of HR nonsense about health and welfare of employees, not followed on projects. Must be able to meet any day and any night. Most upper level stuck in 1980 employee employer relationships. Very few Americans in tech advisory, they don't hire many natives. Lots of BS brown nosing required at office even after traveling all week. Required to be in office on Friday even if on opposite coast the rest of the week. No control over assignments but still required to keep utilization extremely high. Be prepared to have a coach who doesn't work in your area and or doesn't have a clue about your skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating middle people better and follow through with work life balance initiatives.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Holidays
    Big Company and Large Clients

    Cons

    No compensation according to market standard
    Not much career growth
    Politics Politics and more Politics

    Advice to Management

    Know your employees! Change the traditional system of compensating employees with a graph. Instead use skill based compensation system for each employee. Employees are not a group of asset which you can dump into a single bracket. Consider each employee's performance as a measurement of compensation. Nothing else matters!

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours.
    Rewards for your work are good.

    Cons

    I have heard many good things about this company before joining. Always had good impression about its workforce and the brand. However, i did not experience 1% of it. I was a person with confidence, good work ethic, punctuality and professionalism before joining. At the time of quitting i left as a person with low self esteem not being able to cope up so much unnecessary pressure from the competitive environment.
    Absolutely no work life balance.
    Not a friendly environment.
    Worst salary package ever

    Advice to Management

    It would be good for management to address the concerns of its employees.
    Needs to get some better projects

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

    Pros

    Brand name. Big four consulting.

    Cons

    AMS model and big four consulting feel like two sides of the same coin. At a very early stage in your career, if you are looking for challenges (I mean real challenges that use state of the art technology), being stuck in the AMS model is not what you want. If you are lucky, you end up in a "good" project. If not, you end up in a project that has no end.

    Advice to Management

    I do not feel I work in/for a big four. I wish AMS is given a choice to navigate through projects, attend DU trainings, and create a network. Do not sell consulting in the name of AMS. And do not keep changing titles every now and then. And give us opportunities and value our contribution to firm related activities as well.
