    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was expecting Deloitte to be a typical dead silent office but what I found was a lively and unique place with really exciting opportunities to move around and learn new things.

    Cons

    Depending on your boss, you might be working long hours or on things you don't enjoy. I personally had a great boss, enjoyed my work and didn't have to work long hours at all.

    Advice to Management

    The way Deloitte organizes coop students is pretty poor and almost seems to happen without much of a plan of what to do with them. I was lucky to be brought into a different team, but most of the software co-ops were stuck together to do whatever random projects that higher up's could come up with.

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

    Pros

    You will have a lot of autonomy over your performance and network, if you work extremely hard against all odds and fits in well with the personality of the firm, you will thrive. You have control over your career trajectory and for the most part promotions are correlated with performance

    Cons

    You will notice the leaders at Deloitte have a specific profile / personality / aura. If you share those qualities, you will be highly valued and deemed "partner track", which will contribute to the great success in the firm. However, if you don't share those qualities, you will be escalating at a much slower pace with less attention. With that said, whether you want to "fit in" or be of that nature is completely up to you. I know people that hate pretending to be part of the "club" but they will do it for the network / favours / advantage.

    They hire industry people with MBA but lack substantial experience and qualification at a higher pay. It's very discouraging for people that are organically grown within the firm but not much we can do.

    Pay is very low compared to industry standard. It's not the lowest I have heard in big 4 but definitely not enough to incentivize people to stay or grow

    Pros

    - Great name and reputation in the business
    - Really focused on growing their consulting practice
    - Culture is something I've never experienced before (your colleagues are supportive and always trying to help you grow)
    - Amazing opportunities for leadership and travel

    Cons

    - Long hours are the norm
    - Work life balance can be difficult
    - Compensation is not great (and therefore very high turnover)

    I have been working at Deloitte as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent mentoring and opportunities for new hires. the Deloitte University programs are top notch! there are so many ways to advance and build a career here. The people are outstanding and easy to work with.

    Cons

    open concept is terrible! very poor work life balance. They promote inclusivity, yet exclude contractors from most company celebrations , achievements - very disappointing and demotivating.

    Advice to Management

    focus on making contractors part of the team.

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

    Pros

    - You are the owner of your career. Deloitte experience is what you make out of it.
     You'll need to go out and meet people to see what opportunities are available to gain your desired experience. There is limited hand-holding - nothing comes on a silver platter, but for people who take ownership and reach out, there'll be support. (i.e. getting on the projects / industries you want, transferring internally is quite doable / geography transfer trickier but doable)
    - You have the freedom and support to pursue any initiatives / ideas you want to outside of client work. Want to open a workshop for internal employees / initiative a volunteering event / volunteer your skills by doing pro-bono consulting? You have the resource & support to make it happen.
    - Chill culture - I see many people in almost borderline casual cloths (even plain casual for 5th floor tech consulting people :)) - of course, you'll need to dress the part when you have a client meeting but generally the culture is very laid back and relaxing.
    - Depends on the team, but for my team the work life balance is pretty good. (I did hear horror stories from more strategy focused groups (i.e. monitor) working until 10PM-2AM... but I have been going home by 5-6pm-ish except for a very few occasions.

    Cons

    - If you don't have the 'take ownership' personality, you will quickly get lost in this huge firm. You'll still get somewhat decent experience & good name on your resume, but you won't be utilizing 100% of what's available to you.
    - The salary is on the lower side - You'd make more in the industry.
    - Nothing else, honestly.

    Advice to Management

    In general I believe the company is going in the right direction, with the reorg and such.

    One point I would like to make is to compete for top talent against other top-tier employers, emphasizing 'unique Deloitte culture' is not enough for everyone - the compensation does matter. As a Deloitte consultant I often get calls from recruiters who offer better salary, and I am so tempted to leave - if you want Deloitte to be a long-term place for people to work and not just a place for 2-3 year stint, increase the compensation.
