    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Deloitte and Tush is more then the benefits, bonuses, tips, and compensation but the co-workers have been more then friends, they have been my family and every body looks out for one another . I hope your experience is the same !

    Cons

    You don't get enough time with your family is one of the con. I don't know how to do a fincacial report or what program to download to help me with the design. I have had too many projects and I am the only one participating , where other people have their whole family and it's hard when your the only one , cooking, cleaning, working , taking care of your autistic son, you do t have time to use the bathroom .

    Advice to Management

    Management please give me more hours with my family and help me find another job that will help my family in the same way Deloitte helped me. I wish I would have asked Deloitte how to do a financial annual report.

    Pros

    Incredible people that are passionate about Deloitte and growing their network within the company. Deloitte provides a vast amount of resources to their employees and invest heavily in them.

    Cons

    Hard to switch between the federal and commercial practice. Federal practice moves slowly. Deloitte only invests in the PPD track of its consulting practice.

    Pros

    Deloitte is fantastic consulting company. It provides you with exposure to business challenges, from strategy to implementation. This is a bit unique and a larger footprint than some other business consulting firms. The company is excellent about development of its employees and providing a wide array of opportunities to grow professionally

    Constant travel is hard to manage, especially with a family. Intense work environment and long hours

    Advice to Management

    Implement a no-travel consulting track

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

    Pros

    5 weeks PTO, 16 weeks family leave; opportunities for broad exposure; generally intelligent, considerate, and committed peers.

    Cons

    - Very much a "look at me" culture.
    - If you don't kiss up (*ahem* - "network/show your brand"), then no one at Senior Manager or Principal/Managing Director cares about you except as you affect their bottom line.
    - The combination of the two above results in some relatively incompetent self-promoters who promote quickly.
    - The firm considers "leadership" to be a combination of bringing in more money/managing more revenue with going through the motions of expected management practices.
    - Disingenuous salesman-y managers, senior managers, and principals/directors generally means unpleasant work for the people who actually have to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Create more robust mechanisms for upward feedback.

    Keep focusing on well-being. It's appreciated.
