No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

* Consistently named as a best place to launch your career (Newsweek)
* Unique benefits like a fitness subsidy
* Great colleagues
* Brand recognition
* Great training opportunities

Cons

Time machismo is an issue. Although we win awards for work/life balance programs, these programs are rarely implemented as intended. An example is Mass Career Customization, which was discontinued due to it not working well. Employees found that managers could not always deliver on the desired work profile (from home, ramped up to rev up promotion horizon, ramped down to meet family needs, etc.) due to client needs not meshing with employee desires.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, fast-paced environment, great benefits

    Cons

    Below market compensation, limited upward mobililty. You get tons of PTO but good luck using it; demands on your time will severly limit opportunities to take that personal time.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the middle management herd. Too many people have stayed-on for too long, out of the fear that has followed the financial crisis. Time to fix the team such that only strong performers remain, so that all are able to be promoted based on merit rather than tenure.
