    As long as you know what you want. Deloitte will open a lot of doors, and offer good growth opportunity.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Based on experience at Australian firm:

    * Timely & frequent reviews (every 3 months on a project, plus twice a year) = valuable feedback to grow & learn from
    * Surrounded by highly driven people
    * Good diverse projects (if you push for them - See CON)
    * Knowledgeable Partners
    * Inspiring Board / Leaders
    * Real focus on culture in recent years.
    * Pays attention to professional / career growth
    * Good opportunity to travel (if that's your thing - or a CON if that's not your thing)
    * Great for grads to launch career (especially the diversity of projects)

    Cons

    Based on experience at Australian firm:

    * Promotion not based on pure merit or capability - but on relationships & project success (rewards free-riders)
    * Consulting model works on maximising revenue from utilising your skills - which may not coincide with what you want to do - i.e. you end up trapped on bad projects / stuck with same kind of projects.
    * But if you know what you want to do, and is willing to put in the time on bad projects to build your credibility & relationships within the firm with long term view of doing work you want. Deloitte works for you.
    * You will be overlooked unless you shout loud - it's not a place where you can let quality of work speak for itself. You have to speak up to to build reputation in the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the politics, weed out the boys clubs. Attribution in Australian firm in recent years due to lack of respect for employees with skills. Promotions & rewards went to people who shouted the loudest.

    Right this way to be grossly underpaid and unappreciated!

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Deloitte brand is recognized pretty much worldwide. Therefore many people (like me) will at some point consider heading off to work for a major firm with global reach. This global reach means the company can negotiate good benefits, occasional discounts, and other perks.

    Cons

    No perk in the world is worth being treated like sh#t. Which is - barring your entry into the hallowed halls of profit-sharing partners - precisely what you can expect. You'll need a stiff spine (to handle all the people stepping on your neck to "get ahead" and make an impression with said partners); a zipped lip (to avoid making inadvertent noises of disgust when HR makes its legally-required statements regarding "equity"); additionally, impaired vision may assist you in ignoring the fact that all power brokers in the firm are men (fun fact: 90% of the women partners are 5'11 or taller). Most people go in knowing they will work like dogs, and hope to get either paid graduate education or at least a resume "gold star" by getting in and out alive. If you have any work experience at all to speak of before signing over your soul to this one of the Big Four...make certain that you demand WAY more money than you think you're worth going in, as they will offer you WAY less...then make concerted efforts to convince you that you barely deserve that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company that hemorrhages women and minorities year over year is not a good look. This is unmitigated by spotlighting Harvard MBAs from India and calling that your "diversity." The company has an image that is one of old, conservative, staid and often unwelcoming men. This is neither the way the most successful business sectors look, nor the way you should want to. Since much of the company makes its $$ by going into other firms and telling them what to do, perhaps there should be some progress in changing Deloitte's ugly, outdated corporate MO, instead of happy-talk HR shills who look the other way and make excuses as once-eager employees fly in and out the door.
