    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    * Resume builder (it is a 'big 4' firm after all) * Staff and seniors are generally, although not always, a young group of fun hardworking people * Structured career progression (vs. industry) * Depending on how many clients you have, you're not necessarily stuck at one place with the same group of people all year. So you get nice little changes of environment every few months or so (although that starts to go away...

    Cons

    * You definitely feel like a resource/body to be used by those above you sometimes * Management is not interested in creating a work environment for people to stay long term. Staying beyond 1-4 years is crazy even for someone who loves auditing and has great clients and support systems. It takes a super ambitious person who is willing to put up with a lot of downsides to stick it out and management is not interested...

      I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      These folks know exactly what they are doing. They set high standards, and consistently deliver. Their project expectations and planning is excellent. The top level management folks are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning. If you go to company social events (which are very frequent by the way), it is quite easy to have conversations with upper management people (Partners). Deloitte's hiring...

      Cons

      Work-life balance can become poor, especially during tight project timelines (This is expected in the Consulting Business). The employees have a significant amount of "firm-internal" training and knowledge contribution tasks. There are annual goal expectations. It can get tedious if you continuously work on high demand projects. There is intense competition, especially during targeted promotion/milestone years. There...

      Advice to Management

      I have high regards for the Senior Management in this company. I think they are the market leaders in the industry, especially with their consistent high standards. Personally, I think they should strongly encourage some "end-to-end" hands-on responsibility in the IT consulting division. There are very few hands-on guys. I have seen a lot of segregation of duties between people that causes endless heartburn during...
