I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

good benefits, chance to meet and work with many smart people

Cons

Awful compensation, awful hours. The so called "life work balance" is non existent. Deloitte has one and one goal only: make money. Politics and favoritisms reign, and many PPDs are just useless. Very old style of doing business - from associate to senior managers, you are reminded every day on how replaceable you are and how deloitte is doing you a favor to give you a job. All this while you're on the road for 50-60 hrs per week.

Advice to Management

Avoid to hire PPDs that don't have consulting experience. Value and appreciate your employees instead of seeing them as a cost.

    Pros

    Great PTO - 5 weeks.
    Salary is competitive with opportunities to earn bonuses or rewards.
    Exposure to leadership and they have a open door policy, even to Partners.
    Deloitte University

    Cons

    You work hard for all the Pros especially the 5 weeks of PTO with the expectation that if you are just a consultant you still have to reach at least 85% utilization. Also being expected to work more than 40 hours, it may or may not happen, but it most likely will. It all depends on the group you work for and the project you are on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good transparency between leadership and consultants.

    Pros

    The experience you will get while working there is second to none; it will look great on your resume and you will build a great network of contacts.

    Cons

    The price you will pay to obtain the pros mentioned above can be high; you will be expected to work hundreds of hours of overtime and will sacrifice pay compared to industry jobs.

    Advice to Management

    None.
