    Pros

    Great network of people with lots of mentorship
    Lots of opportunities for personal projects I.e., volunteer with campus recruiting
    You’ll learn and grow a lot in a very short period of time

    Cons

    Hours and workload are very intense, expect long hours.
    You really have to have a thick skin to keep outputting at the expected rate without crashing.
    Job becomes your life. Can be pro/con depending on your goals.

    Very good opportunity to work in various industries and gain experience very quickly because of industry exposure and fast paced environment.

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

    Pros

    It's a good brand name, especially early on in your career (ex. as an intern). Will get you looks at other companies in the future

    A very wide range of work going on around the firm so there's bound to be something you find interesting

    Highly flexible work arrangements - able to work-from-home when presence is not needed in office and you're not monitored in the office (i.e. you can step out for an errand or appointment without any hassle, if nothing is urgent at that moment). Overall, they expect you to be responsible and respect that.

    Great benefits for wellness

    Cons

    The firm is so large that it naturally has to compromise on quality. Your peers will not consistently be of as high of a quality as other firms

    Management doesn't seem to really care about mentorship and development. All people get assigned mentors but mine fell off the face of the earth, and this has been the case for some others as well.

    Pay is mediocre compared to how many hours you're expected to p

    This is natural within client service, but you often get work thrown at you late, having to cancel plans. In my experience, managers could plan work better to avoid this

    Advice to Management

    Be more earnest with your approach to mentorship. Assigning mentors and having the online mentor system is useless if the people you are promoting to upper management don't actually care. This was one thing that really stuck out in my mind is one of the core reasons I chose to leave.

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

    Pros

    Benefits (you get $1300 towards healthcare or personal spendings), opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds, fantastic alumni network

    Cons

    good to average work life balance (but given the quality of the work, you can't really complain), lack of recognition, dismal performance review and feedback system

    Advice to Management

    If we could only work on our feedback systems to let our people know how well they work and how they stack up against competition, it would be great.
