I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Enjoyed and learning from working with high-talent colleagues.

Cons

Too much value placed on client-facing staff and not enough focus on recognizing and rewarding those behind the scenes; for example their technology talent pool.

Advice to Management

Don't chase short-term financial gains for longer-term company reputation.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Deloitte brand is recognized pretty much worldwide. Therefore many people (like me) will at some point consider heading off to work for a major firm with global reach. This global reach means the company can negotiate good benefits, occasional discounts, and other perks.

    Cons

    No perk in the world is worth being treated like sh#t. Which is - barring your entry into the hallowed halls of profit-sharing partners - precisely what you can expect. You'll need a stiff spine (to handle all the people stepping on your neck to "get ahead" and make an impression with said partners); a zipped lip (to avoid making inadvertent noises of disgust when HR makes its legally-required statements regarding "equity"); additionally, impaired vision may assist you in ignoring the fact that all power brokers in the firm are men (fun fact: 90% of the women partners are 5'11 or taller). Most people go in knowing they will work like dogs, and hope to get either paid graduate education or at least a resume "gold star" by getting in and out alive. If you have any work experience at all to speak of before signing over your soul to this one of the Big Four...make certain that you demand WAY more money than you think you're worth going in, as they will offer you WAY less...then make concerted efforts to convince you that you barely deserve that.

    Advice to Management

    A company that hemorrhages women and minorities year over year is not a good look. This is unmitigated by spotlighting Harvard MBAs from India and calling that your "diversity." The company has an image that is one of old, conservative, staid and often unwelcoming men. This is neither the way the most successful business sectors look, nor the way you should want to. Since much of the company makes its $$ by going into other firms and telling them what to do, perhaps there should be some progress in changing Deloitte's ugly, outdated corporate MO, instead of happy-talk HR shills who look the other way and make excuses as once-eager employees fly in and out the door.
