    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely structured career path(s) in management as well as technical areas.
    Impressive roster of clientele in Federal and Commercial markets.
    Great name overall in the industry

    Cons

    Highly competitive sales and managed revenue targets.
    Promotions hinge upon disruptive work life balance, If one is willing to put in 80 hours a week and, go ahead and enjoy rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce utilization targets for senior consultants and managers to focus efforts on training and professional development, please be more generous when sending employees to conferences

    Great place to start, but probably not a life-long career.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior Assistant in Portland, OR

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

    Pros

    Lots of good training and exposure to many industries and different businesses. Easy to transfer to certain locations. So far my time on the west coast seems a little more laid back than the east coast however I have yet to go through a busy season.

    Cons

    We are salaried and are not paid enough for the hours we work in busy season--probably my biggest issue with the job is the salary. The self evaluations are probably the most annoying thing to complete and seem like a waste of time.

    Political and hard driven, hard to maintain work-life balance, but will learn tons

    Former Employee - Management Consulting Manager in McLean, VA
    Former Employee - Management Consulting Manager in McLean, VA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learn tons on subject matter, leadership and managing cross-functional teams. If you get on a project with a good team and leadership, it's mostly good. Travel perks are good (can travel to other places besides home for the weekend for the same money), so if you are young and want to take advantage of it, you can see a lot of the world.

    Cons

    Work-life balance - requirements around client work, firm initiatives, people development, learning etc. Need to do at minimum 45 hrs client work and handle all the other activities in addition. Also, add travel hours (from personal time) every Monday and Thursday. You will be on a fast train through life!
    Political - need to manage up big time and don't expect understanding.
