    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Great training ground. Strong infrastructure. Clear path to future growth. Lots of opportunity to be part of committees and engage with others. They say 1 year at a big 4 is worth 3 at a private firm- I would agree that the exposure and learning opportunities are amazing.

    Cons

    One of the reason you can progress at a 3 to 1 rate (compared to private industry) is because you can work the equivalent of 2 years in a 365 day period. Long hours- but there is also the option to work a 'flex' schedule.

    Advice to Management

    The soft skills of some of the younger management could use some refining and compassion. That being said there is plenty of strong leadership within the firm.

      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...
