The top level management folks are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning.

      I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      My experience working in IT: -Highly Competitive Benefits Package (excellent healthcare made affordable) -Competitive Salaries -Emphasis on Work/Life Balance - Flexible Work Schedule & Leave Policy -Ability to work remotely (with approval) -Positive and Encouraging Culture -Travel opportunities (optional; varies by position) -Impressive outreach and volunteer opportunities

      Cons

      -Holiday and Leave is great for Full Time Employees, but not Contractors -Very high performance expectations - can be stressful for some -While culturally relaxed, still very fast paced and intense -Onsite, co-located resources have slight advantage over remote -Extroverts may have a slight advantage over introverts due to unspoken "social" job requirements

      Advice to Management

      Continue the current track of process improvement for talent retention. Provide more opportunities for employees to confirm understanding of benefits options.
