I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Challenging workplace that forces you outside of your comfort zone - provides unparalleled learning experiences at the beginning of one's career.
- Leader within its marketplace. Project opportunities are with blue chip clients.
- Generally good people, many of whom became friends outside of work.

Cons

- Consulting is a loose term and Deloitte is not a strategy firm; rather, the Firm provides clients with intelligent individuals as short- to medium-term staff augmentation. Consultants are focused on executing operational tasks that do not require innovative thinking. Projects become mundane quickly.

- Size. It's a behemoth. Unfortunately, as an employee, it felt too big for its own good. Service areas fought against each other for business and it was difficult to find a sense of engagement with the broader Firm. The values and experiences that tenured practitioners reminisced about fondly were completely different from the current state of the Firm's culture.

- "PRD" (aka extracurriculars) - there is a heavy focus on non-billable work to "support Firm development." Essentially its free labor for Deloitte that practitioners are forced into, but are never truly thanked/recognized for after hitting (or surpassing) the status quo.

Advice to Management

- Develop programs and initiatives focused specifically on retaining top talent;
- Increase transparency in every regard;
- Visit client teams more often and organize opportunities to connect outside the office...this had a huge, positie impact on engagement and morale but unfortunately became less common with each year
