I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity to own your career and do many different things. Strong teaming culture. Great development opportunities. Working with so many intelligent and driven people increases everyone's performance overall. Deloitte University.

Cons

The firm has lost some of the 'entreprenurial spirit' it used to have, since it has grown so large.
You get a smartphone, they pay for it, but you pay for it in 24/7 expected access, even when on vacation. There really is no backup plan or anyone to cover for you when you are on vacation.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent with our compensation strategy. Be more honest with new hires about how much travel is required and the hours required. Fix the performance evaluation process.

    Pros

    - You work with other young and bright people for the most part. This makes for teams that are often easy to get along and occasionally fun.
    - You are given a lot of responsibility, thrown into the fire per se. Which can be good and bad
    - Taking the Big 4 path will give you future career opportunities, although most immediate opportunities will be in accounting

    Cons

    - it gets exhausting and not fulfilling providing a service that is not wanted by your client, but is provided because it is required for the sake of regulatory compliance. You do way more work than really practical or necessary in order to cover the Partner's butt. This is known and accepted, as it is the way of the world in an industry that is heavily regulated.

    - You rarely every come across people here that enjoy their job. Everyone is just doing it "for now" until they see a good opportunity to leave, or else simply staying because they don't know what else to do. It can make for a depressing and discouraging environment

    - Managers are almost always stressed out. This trickles down if you let it.

    - Little work life balance during busy season. Throughout the rest of the year you still work more than 40 hour weeks.. If you're on a big client, you'll be very busy all year around.

    - On the same token, if you're on a big client, you get little exposure to different areas of the audit, and likely no exposure to any other clients.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Be prepared to be continuously trained and challenged. Busy environment. Exciting work sites. Travel if you want. Wide range of benefits. Nice corporate offices. Excellent Enterprise Social network.

    Cons

    Awful performance review system, employees rate each other and some have hang-ups. Don't have a bad year or you're out. Engagements may only last a few months. Company is always the highest bidder.
