    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Hires young, bright resources
    - A few really great managers/senior managers
    - Amazing culture in the past - this still resonates with some managers/teams, but not all
    - Analyst program is incredible - leaders, coaches and participants all enjoy and come away will great skills and networks

    Cons

    - Confusing and compressing compensation structure for FY13 and beyond, places all the risk on staff and away from partnership
    - Opacity into firm earnings (and what they mean, e.g. "making plan")
    - Inability to rotate between projects and get diversified experience
    - Many "checked out" senior managers/PPDs, no mentorship at the highest level
    - Lots of overhead staff watering down the culture and profits
    - Many 'experienced hires' with no relevant work experience brought in at too high of a level in the PPD track
    - Top heavy with nebulous edicts from HR organization that no one can request information from or make changes to, absolutely no personal care or attention paid
    - Forever changing "road to partner", 10-12 years to 15+ years in my tenure
    - Role of 'counselor' has no control on it, many counselors are unknowledgable and unenthused

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat and remove some of the overhead; get more people into client service and away from "support staff". Clarify the expectations for the road to partner and make this an attainable goal for resources to inspire them. Care more about resources and invest in careers through education and compensation across service line. Ensure a higher quality of senior management and investment in junior resources. Invest in your people, instead of seeing them solely as dollars. Try and get back to "old Deloitte" and revive the awesome culture that is seriously in danger right now.
