    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    1 ) Incomparable visibility into the internal workings of a variety of companies 2 ) Possibilities for rapid advancement compared to other similar career options 3 ) Post-employment clout given experience at a "Big-Four" firm

    Cons

    1 ) Compensation is not in line with the time/effort required and expected of employees both on a regional basis within the same firm and as compared to similar job opportunities with other firms 2 ) Tendency is to treat people as a means to an end and the performance feedback loop leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to Management

    Make feedback meaningful and make it possible for someone to stand out and be recognized for their abilities without having to cow-tow, resort to disingenuity, and eat hours in order to meet minimum expectations (even if the individual is more than sufficiently competent).

      I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      These folks know exactly what they are doing. They set high standards, and consistently deliver. Their project expectations and planning is excellent. The top level management folks are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning. If you go to company social events (which are very frequent by the way), it is quite easy to have conversations with upper management people (Partners). Deloitte's hiring...

      Cons

      Work-life balance can become poor, especially during tight project timelines (This is expected in the Consulting Business). The employees have a significant amount of "firm-internal" training and knowledge contribution tasks. There are annual goal expectations. It can get tedious if you continuously work on high demand projects. There is intense competition, especially during targeted promotion/milestone years. There...

      Advice to Management

      I have high regards for the Senior Management in this company. I think they are the market leaders in the industry, especially with their consistent high standards. Personally, I think they should strongly encourage some "end-to-end" hands-on responsibility in the IT consulting division. There are very few hands-on guys. I have seen a lot of segregation of duties between people that causes endless heartburn during...
