    Pros

    People - you can find mentor

    Cons

    hours - long hour, hang out with co-worker for more than 10 hours a day or worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep people please don't just focus on getting new client - the analysis needs to be a cost/benefit analysis instead of just revenue analysis.

    Pros

    Great culture and group of people. Mentoring is highly valued

    Cons

    Difficult to work your way up if hired as an Analyst. The evaluation system is redundant and somewhat ineffective. You have to be involved in firm activities on top of your client work in order to do well at the firm. Lack of good manager.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Deloitte are:

    1) Name recognition - The firm is recognized across the industry as producing top talent
    2) Training - Amazing training opportunities that are free and part of your required work throughout the year (PMP, LSS, ITIL, SCRUM, etc.)
    3) People - The people I work with constantly challenge me and create a unique competitive working environment that forces you to adapt and grow.

    Cons

    1) The hours can be long and if you are looking for a 9-5 job, Deloitte is not for you
    2) You are constantly competing against your colleagues at year end for ratings and bonuses. As you get higher in the firm, colleagues may stab you in the back to get new business and ensure their own success at your cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that the firm needs to examine the way they compensate people with clearances. They have finally recognized that compensation is necessary to retain top talent within the National Security Sector, however it still lags behind other firms in the amount awarded.

    Current Employee - Associate 6 in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of business development opportunities. They give bonuses and promotions every year. A lot of opportunity for growth. Plenty of volunteer opportunities. Looks great on resume. Great health benefits. Great parental leave (100% paid maternity and paternity leave). They pay up to $500/year for health and fitness memberships. Opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    401K matching is practically non-existent. Depending on your level, the work/life balance isn't all that balanced. Although Deloitte gives promotions, it isn't all of that great. They will overwork you if you let them.

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

    Pros

    Extremely talented and passionate practitioners, every resource at your disposal, broad opportunities to do whatever you want and make your experience what you want.
    Great training and personal growth opportunities available, high level clients that are decision makers.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a myth (however that's probably true for most companies like this).
    Advancing to manager level and beyond to PPD level is extremely competitive. This isn't necessarily a con. However if you want to do your job and go home this isn't the place for you. Kiss your nights and a good part of your weekends good-bye if you want to succeed at these higher levels.
