    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good news: While excellent performance is always helpful, the way to get ahead at Deloitte is to become valuable to the partner and client. If you get on the right project team, it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding.

    Cons

    Bad news: If you become too valuable in a specific role, you can find your advancement blocked by a partner or manager who doesn't want to lose you, so research how potential managers and partners treat their staff people before you commit to a project. Choose your starting place (function or practice) carefully, because it is very difficult to transfer internally between practices (Consulting to/from Audit/Risk)... or major functions (Commercial to/from Federal)

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorganizing the firm and do a better job of vetting the very senior partners.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good culture, but too getting to big to navigate. Used to be more cosy

    Cons

    Much to large and inpersonal. Not suitable for people who prefer intimate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be more acceptable towards quality than quantity

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great training and a commitment to culture that produces teamwork and pride. The U.S. firm is a leader and has produced many of the global firm leaders.

    Cons

    Sometimes the U.S. Firm believes they are not part of the global firm when it comes to implementing global initiatives. Candidates for global leadership positions should experience working in a non-US entity before being appointed. Many of the clients do this, and it would create greater understanding

    Advice to Management

    Keep learning about the needs of clients outside the U.S. and helping US partners and managers to experience international needs

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Colleagues! People are bright, smart and you learn and grow in the environment.

    Cons

    People are highly valued as long as revenue is being generated but don't expect to take advantage of the many people programs if you are not generating revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people, don't lie to them about their status. Particularly senior HR leaders need to tell it like it is.

    Pros

    Great place to work, great people and client experiences. Would recommend the firm for people starting out as it provides a solid foundation for doing other things.

    Cons

    Political and work life balance is an issue. most people leave because of the lifestyle issues with a consulting firm.

    Advice to Management

    Improve transparency

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    An organization with very bright people that think about growth and innovation. They invest in their business, technology and the improvement of their people. While it can be a demanding work environment the leadership has made strides to improve balance -- limited/no weekend emails, health/wellness, and informal "get togethers" with staff. I have worked for large technology companies and consulting companies and... this is by far the best organization that I have worked for.

    Cons

    Goals can be challenging and (again) work/life can be difficult. The position will likely require travel -- probably not 5 days per week, but in a national practice it will probably happen. It can be a struggle to focus the various goals that you set for your self. It is important that you focus on the goals that align to strategy.

    Pros

    I was recruited to Deloitte and joined as an Experienced professional and have been supported for success from day one. The environment is collaborative and I enjoy working with colleagues who are extremely talented. Great opportunities for women leaders.

    Cons

    The Consulting profession is extremely demanding. Among all the Consulting firms Deloitte is growing rapidly so keeping my own personal balance with growth opportunities can be challenging. It's hard to say no.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I didn't grow up in "big consulting" but can definitively attest that Deloitte Consulting offers a great first rung on the ladder for anyone interested in a career in business and/or aspires to apply to b-school. Not every project will be in a young consultant's perceived sweet spot, but the ability to cycle through dozens of companies and "fuzzy questions" in the course of 2-3 years is unparalleled. Consulting... experience is also a fast-track to a top-tier b-school.

    Cons

    No doubt, consulting is a demanding and all-consuming job. The travel, hours, and pace can be extreme.
