    Pros

    Free lunches once a week maybe . Flexible hours. They give you a sweet development enviornment(macbook,thunderbolt,etc)

    Cons

    Less pay. Extremely poor employee retention. They will fire you even if they dont assign you any work . Favoritism with the managers so new guys will never get to be on a project. Senior management lies to your face. All the managers want to look out for themselves before they even start to care for the engineer. Benefits are horrible (i actually think non-existent though) . Engineers are treated with zero respect. Career growth is non-existent here. You are expected to go and beg the managers for months before you are even assigned some work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying. Stop hiring. Stop wasting other people's time. Least you can do is not "indirectly" let people go for something not even their fault.

    Pros

    Brand Name, PTO, subsequent job opportunities

    Cons

    long hours, hard deadlines, high turnover and inexperienced staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to retain staff. Experienced staff can do things twice as fast, which will make everything cost less, even if you are paying them more. Also, make sure that the metrics that you are using to measure success actually mean what you think they mean. For example, the recent focus on rate per hour has been nonsensical. It means that it makes more sense for me, as a senior, to do the work and not to bother teaching a first year. I don't think that that is what you want to have happen. In a couple years, these untaught first years will be inexperienced seniors. However, this is happening more and more to keep the rate per hour at the desired level.

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

    Pros

    Great training, high caliber professionals

    Cons

    Cubicals, lock-step path to advancement, must commit 4-6 years before seeing any real responsibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase fluidity of advancement opportunities. Reward high performers with promotions and/or more significant bonuses. Get rid of the cubicals. And if you want less turnover, stop paying $50,000 salaries.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    You will touch a lot of different types of projects, ranging from individuals up to provision and consulting/proposals. They are always bringing new clients in so you always stay busy. If you find an advocate at the senior manager/ partner level then you will always get their work for better or worse.

    Cons

    Outside of a couple senior managers, management is either distant, don't know the answers to your questions, or unwilling to guide you. This means the role of manager, detail reviewer, substantive reviewer, and a lot of the times preparation falls on you. Which with the high turnover, most of my engagements were brand new to me. Turnover in experienced staff is and seniors is very high so no one below you is ever on the engagement for two years in a row. Unless it is a staff from India which you will essentially be preparing the project yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your seniors out. Don't make them manage a project when they are new on the engagement and have no team under them. And don't disappear for days because they are going to have questions. Also one word emails are never the best answer.

    Pros

    Easily one of the most effective ways to jump-start your career. Work with the brightest of the bright. Excellent compensation.

    Cons

    Difficult to manage work-life balance if career success is not the top priority for an individual. Extremely high travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As this is a service-oriented business, placing even greater weight on the feedback process (whether vertical, horizontal, or outside-in) will yield incredible results.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, 25 days off, various corporate perks. Senior engineering department is strong.

    Cons

    - Projects led by managers with little/no background in creative or digital work. Most come from suit & tie consulting backgrounds and have no idea what they're selling to clients

    - National creative director implementing "design then ship to India" for cheap engineering at Mumbai office

    - Projects selected on meeting profit margins rather than healthy, stimulating challenges

    - Recruitment blatantly hiring for numbers, not quality of employees

    - Observed many people leave out of boredom (sit on the bench for months) or pure frustration (not doing work they were told in interview)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring subpar talent & management. You're bleeding quality people because you're not giving people quality projects to grow on. Setting career goals as a mobile engineer (and other disciplines) is seemingly pointless because you're forcing people to work on HTML/front-end work and not bringing in mobile projects.
