    Good brand name
    High professional network

    Cons

    No respect for peers
    Biased senior management
    No fairness for upward growth, it is driven by networking and not by the skills
    Unusual performance management

    Advice to Management

    You are constantly loosing some of the best talent, and you know that very well, however you do not care about it. Only time will tell how only a brand name can survive your business.

    Pros

    Deloitte, as with all the other Big 4 Accounting Firms, has great chances for employees to take training and CPE courses. They have nice offices but unless you're in Tax, you won't spend much time there.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a very political company, in order to advance you have to be very chummy with everyone, especially Partners/Senior Managers, they would be your "guardian angels" who would protect you during reviews. Sometimes strong performers are laid off because they didn't establish any solid relationships with Partners/Senior Managers.

    Furthermore be prepared for busy season! Busy season is long and not always busy. The client is not always ready and you may have to sit on your hands for several weeks. Seniors vary in quality some are just swamped and will not assist anyone, others will help.

    They recent lay offs were very contentious in that management does not communicate criteria for layoffs, this is related to the first comment above about Deloitte being a very political place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Less ambiguity with advancement and promotion, more focused training on leadership and development of talent rather than advancement of personal career.
