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

    Pros

    - the people
    - generally, managers do have your back

    Cons

    - interesting projects are very hard to find unless you know the right people
    - lots of after work and weekend time is "the norm"

    Advice to Management

    there's an unwritten expectation enforced by senior leaders that Deloitte has to become your whole life - with even your personal relationships coming from the Firm. support people to explore their lives and selves outside work.

    Pros

    If you get on a good project with a good manager, it's great and you can be very happy

    Lots of hierarchy, 'strategy' really isn't there for most of the client facing accounts. You need to do your due diligence on projects otherwise you can be a glorified admin.

    To retain top talent, give top talent the opportunities they deserve

    Cons

    Life work balance is hard, depending on your projects
    Utilization driven, not always fair
    When your project runs out, you better find another one
