    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn - Deloitte University is great!

    Cons

    Not the best work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Provide true work-life balance; rebrand some service lines to broaden the scope of capabilities practitioners can deliver to clients (leave politics aside and focus on what clients are looking for)

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

    Pros

    The benefits are so nice. Its almost hard to find companies that give you $500 Wellness Allowance, $300 Mobile Tech Allowance, crazy amounts of Parental leave, 200+ hours of PTO, yearly bonuses/raises based on performance, and training on demand.

    They try to honor flexibility and predictability as much as possible

    Cons

    You will work for those perks. And don't know what your skillset is but it doesn't matter because you will do a bit of everything as a consultant. I really hate that. As a consultant you will work on proposals even if that's not something you want to do or have a knack for. If you are on their traditional PPD career path then this also means you have to do firm initiative (aka free work for the firm)

    If you are a technical person like me I would recommend steering clear lest you like not working tech.

    Advice to Management

    Management is generally awesome. They have been through the same crap as you and the typically understand that things come up and life happens.
