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

Pros

Many perks (free meals, excellent benefits, excellent travel per diem)
Good exposure to diverse set of clients

Cons

They don't fire the bottom 10% of employees - they move them around or in some cases even promote them; political (you would have to ask permission for routine requests to reach out to other parts of the firm);

Advice to Management

When the masses say a particular person is a bad egg, remove them, don't promote them.

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

    Pros

    Great training ground for post college and MBA professionals
    Wide variety of project experiences and client interaction
    Excellent career opportunities frequently arise, internally and externally

    Cons

    Work/Life balance hard to maintain - though the company will make special arrangements when needed based on situations in your life - these come with no repercussions either
    Limited control on the types of clients you work with (initially) - eventually you can steer things in the directions you want, but have to earn that privilege

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

    Pros

    If you find a good project - it will be challenging, rewarding, and impactful. Otherwise you will be stuck in a dead-end stifling role. You are 100% responsible for finding your next project. Which can be a pro, but if the timing is bad
    might not be much or anything available. A good project / client enables some work/life balance (but if does not really exist at Deloitte.)

    Cons

    You are 100% responsible for finding your next project. Which can be a pro, but if the timing is bad
    might not be much or anything available. And if you are on the Associate path it could be the end of your career. For Associates, the last day of your project is the last day at the firm. Associates do not receive severance. But they do pay out all the PTO you earned, but were never able to take.

    Advice to Management

    Appear to be losing Federal projects because the Firm is too expensive.
