    Pros

    opportunities for advancement, great teams, flexibility, good benefits

    Cons

    Insane culture. If you work in fed space you can be limited in number of hours and not meet utilization meaning you can’t take time off. Additionally, it is impossible to move into different areas if your partner or SM don’t want you to.

    Advice to Management

    Give people the opportunity to chose their work instead of locking them down into something they have no interest in for the rest of their Deloitte career and don’t take it personally when they decide to leave as a result.

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

    Pros

    Decent compensation
    Great benefits
    Plentiful company resources
    Excellent learning environment for fresh college grads

    Cons

    Culture
    Work life balance
    Variety of work
    Recruiters out of touch at what it's like to really work for the company

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte is overall, an excellent company to work for - especially if you are fresh out of college. New hires are placed in a fast paced learning environment where it's guaranteed that you will be in a position to grow. The benefits and compensation packages are generally generous as well. Furthermore, being a company with a global presence, the firm has almost unlimited resources to tackle any challenge.

    However as other have alluded, the work/life balance could be improved upon. Furthermore, if you are unsatisfied with the type of work you do, switching to a different area can be difficult. The culture at Deloitte I also found to be extremely arrogant (it's how the firm likes to educate their new hires), not understanding that their industry peers are just as intelligent and competent as a 'Deloitter'. In addition, a lot of recruiters have no idea what it's actually like to work at the firm, often driving expectations for new hires, unrealistically high.

    However, I would still recommend Deloitte, provided you understand what you are getting into.
