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

Pros

1- Name / brand
2- Training even though Deloitte University (DU) leadership center/training is sooooo over-rated. Rooms are first class food is good and plenty.

Cons

1- Deloitte hires experienced and qualified people into a lower level than other big 4s
2- Deloitte benefits are great but good luck using all your PTO without being penalized by year end. Work-life balance is bad. You have to work at least 45+ hours a week to meet your targeted work hours. This does not include other internal Firm work.
3- Deloitte pay is low compared to industry and considering the other non-client/ Firm contributions such as proposal work you have to do and trainings you have to give
4- Career growth is very slow and is basically based on if they 'like' you or don't 'like' you. It's not based on your actual work and experience.
5- Performance reviews are based on 'quota' set for each project. That is how many will receive a 2, 3,4, or 5 rating at the end of the year. Performance reviews are top-down and not based on a 360 review which I believe is not fair.
6- You pay for commuting to client-site while on a project. My commute on some projects cost me over $575 a month which are non-expensable/re-reimbursable
7- Politics as it is in almost all other organizations/corporations
8- You're assigned on projects based on who you know and not what you know. I was lucky I never sat on the bench/beach but that I believe is unfair.

Advice to Management

1- Review the performance review process
2- Review compensation structure and package
3- Allow bottum-up sharing of ideas and be open to ideas

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

    Pros

    Good starting salary, can be somewhat fun IF you get a good team (very rare), thats it

    Cons

    Work 80+ hours during busy season, job satisfaction is directly tied to how well you get along with you senior, no way to really shine or stand out

    Advice to Management

    The company is too big and has to many problems to be fixed. It will continue to churn out eager college graduates looking to start a career in accounting

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The collaborative environment between designers and engineers is unlike anything I have been a part of before, and it really shows in the amazing work that we do. Amazing coworkers! A fantastic opportunity to work on major apps for Fortune 500 companies. Overall compensation is well above market.

    Cons

    The office has been going through some growing pains, dating back to before the merger. With such a large group of people, it is not always possible to have enough interesting new projects coming in to keep everyone busy. This has been exacerbated recently by a large-scale project that is a decidedly bad fit for the company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Focus of winning deals that leverage the strengths of the collaborative creative culture at Deloitte Digital.
