    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place to start your career. You will continue to learn new things throughout your time you spend here and things will never get old or borrowing. You will also advance quickly.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very poor. Their idea of work life balance is being able to take your work home with you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the work life balance and you will retain employees longer.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities since there are lots of projects. Some bright but frazzled people and more than a few who think they know how to lead

    Cons

    If you're brought in at a high level with specific expertise, make sure it doesn't run counter to the established thought process or you won't get any traction. If you happen to get by the client partner and are able to articulate the truth, you may find out it conflicts with the project goals - increased revenue growth over client satisfaction. Happened to me 6 times in 9 months - 4 of them had the plug pulled later when the client got educated.

    Advice to Management

    When bringing in technical leadership from the outside, be open to share opinions and ideas, not dictate direction which could be wrong and detrimental to the client.
