    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Generous traveling/meal per diems. Extremely talented coworkers. Flexibility for working remotely. Generous work phone plan. Fairly easy to get your first promotion to Senior, and then again to Manager.

    Extremely tight deadlines. Partners over promise clients on deliverable timelines. PTO is frowned upon. Very common to work most weekends. 60 hour weeks are common and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great professional development. Work is challenging and intellectually stimulating. Overall, invaluable experience if you are okay with being enslaved.

      Cons

      Unhealthy work environment. Work-life balance is encouraged in theory, but not in actuality. They technically give you 5 weeks of PTO, although there are black-out periods during busy seasons that are off limits, and they add contingencies to PTO approval during non-busy season. "If you complete 80 hours worth of work before your PTO, then it is approved". If you can stick it out 2 years, it will open doors for better...

      Advice to Management

      Do not attach contingencies to PTO.
