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

    Pros

    --The people I work with are amazing. Smart, motivated, and willing to work together.
    --Opportunities grow on trees. Want training? Here you go! Want to lead an effort? Have at it!
    --Senior leadership is generally pretty approachable.

    Cons

    --If you're on the "PPD Track," you are required to put in hours outside your project work on "firm activities." It can feel like a lot, and it can feel like a distraction from client work at times.
    --Bait and switch--they give you tons of vacation time, but you can't use it without hurting your utilization. Utilization is high. It works out to about two weeks vacation, plus holidays, if you're capped at 40 hours per week (most Federal projects are)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's get real about how much you can expect of people before they decide their lives are worth more. There's a lot of turnover because people get burnt out. Instead of cycling people through, why not pull back a smidge and see if you can get some of those folks to stick around? Most people treat this as a training ground for something else they want to do--suck out all the marrow and then walk away. Wouldn't it be better to realize the investments you put into people. All that training, walking right out your doors--it's a shame.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Out of the big 4 companies, Deloitte really is a great place to be. Management in my office takes an interest in each employee and we are compensated fairly well.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. I don't remember the last time I regularly worked 40 hours/week. Work enjoyment comes from the people you work with... so if you're stuck with a bad team, you'll hate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership in my office is good, but it seems like the partner salary and keeping the partner's units valued at a certain level is the most important driving factor of our business.

    Pros

    Long hours at times and you must use all of your PTO or you will lose it.

    Growth from one project to the next. You may get stuck on a project longer than you want to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into salaries across the board and ensure that those who are underpaid at their current levels will be brought up to par within the firm.
