  1.  

    I had an excellent experience working for Deloitte Consulting.

    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Rosslyn, VA
    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Rosslyn, VA

    I have been working at Deloitte as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for a privately owned company and appreciated the amount of investment they put in their employees. They definitely do a good job of retaining top talent by letting them define their own career.

    Cons

    The company is very large and some people may not like having to deal with all of the cons that come along with this. Don't expect 40 hour weeks or being able to not check your work phone/email after hours.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Great training programs and a lot of great people who are very supportive. Staying connected and refreshing technical skills continuously is very important.

    Cons

    hard to navigate through such a big system. You may get lost and do really poorly the first year of your evaluation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    come up with more PRD work to make better use of people who are on the bench.

    The work is very demanding, you are expected to do "extra-curricular" work to meet goals.

    Great place to start your career

    Current Employee - FAS Senior Associate in Rosslyn, VA
    Current Employee - FAS Senior Associate in Rosslyn, VA

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

    Pros

    Excellent starting point for those fresh out of college to learn the basics of consulting and client service. The pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Your career is in your own hands but the growth of your network and building a support team around you is critical. Deloitte is a matrix'd organization where you might have many bosses, project managers, client leads, and it's up to you to manage the seeming lack of hierarchy.

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and helpful.
    You get to network with other services and learn from them.
    helps you realize your career path

    Cons

    Deloitte services interns don't get the exposure and networking opportunities as consulting interns .If you can focus on consulting internships you get more exposure, it also helps you realize your career paths.

    Pros

    Client selection is varied and you can learn a lot in a short period of time, opportunities to move around or to focus make this a great job for entry level driven individuals and with proper initiative a great place to grow and learn from other very intelligent individuals

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a constant challenge though lately they are finally taking actionable steps to improve, the quality of folks has diluted a bit because they have grown so large; "extra curricular" internal activities are stressed

    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.

    Good people, mediocre work, great benefits

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in McLean, VA

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

    Pros

    Good compensation, not as competitive than McKinsey, but reasonable compared to the other Big Four competitors. Great benefits. Attracts driven people.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility to migrate between practices. Once you're signed onto technology (vs. strategy or human capital) or a particular practice area (e.g. health care vs. energy etc.), it's a cumbersome process to migrate. You have to work hard to network internally to get new work. Expects long hours while on client site, especially if you don't have a good project manager.

    Pros

    Location near Washington, DC
    Good public transportation

    Cons

    Really everything is a pro

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
