    Pros

    Very professional company, well managed and have plenty of self-training opportunities and certification.

    Cons

    Particular to ASSOCIATE model in Deloitte - Associates are hired based in project and would need to be billable all the time. You are given 4 weeks of time to find a new project (when your billing) is getting over and if you cannot be placed you will be terminated irrespective of your performance. HR folks will keep repeating the fact that there is no bench time in Deloitte. I was billable from start to end for almost 2 years and was laid off on my last billing day.
    This is a big pain for H1b employees where they need to find another job within couple of weeks as Deloitte would cancel H1b anytime from Week1 to Week 4 of termination and usually their attorney would start it after 2 weeks of termination (they call it separation). So I feel it is very dangerous to join Deloitte in ASSOCIATE model. Otherwise it is a good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ASSOCIATE model is a bad spot on a reputed company like Deloitte. This is purely hire and fire strategy and would put the employees working in this model in a tight spot. Many of them are H1b employees and you are playing with their future.

    Pros

    Firm reputation, training, company values, and exposure to high caliber clients are all positive reasons to join this firm. The hours can be a little long during busy season but the experience is worth it!

    Cons

    This environment may seem somewhat restrictive to those who want to run their own business. If you don't mind the regimented environment and the years to achieve your goal of becoming a partner it is a great place to build a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Great firm for gaining experience and contacts.

    Pros

    I found the consulting world great and the access to education and activities outstanding. The overall challenge was great

    Cons

    The major issue is that there was a lot of red tape around you as your career growth. Also, I think the way you start the project search needs to be completely reworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A revamp of the model of how things get done from an individual perspective needs to be addressed as well as looking at the group.

    Pros

    Wonderful Benefits
    Great People
    Latest Technology
    Flexible
    Great work/life balance

    Cons

    I'm in a support role and I'm pretty sure they've worked hard to keep our salaries low over the years. The 1% raises aren't cutting it anymore.
    No upward mobility in my role.
    Lack of opportunity to branch off into other areas of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There really needs to be more opportunities to grow into roles with better pay, higher title, and more responsibility. The rating system is also unfair and antiquated. A rating system that's not based on performance is senseless. To set goals your employees aren't given an opportunity to reach is also unfair and senseless.
