    Pros

    lots of training, competitive pay, different ways to advance

    Cons

    horrible work-life balance, promotions are based upon what you do compared to everyone else which is difficult b/c they expect you to do 45+ hrs minimal and then do initiative work after that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work your life away, you will eventually get promoted.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, lots of networking and training

    Cons

    They expect more from the average employee than any other defense contractor and the expectations aren't in line with what can be accomplished given market and Deloitte's parameters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Federal Practice needs to change the business model.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Deloitte has been business school without the debt. Work hard, play hard attitude. Excellent place to start out of college for resume boost, pay grade, and to be surrounded by like-minded (and aged) professionals.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is difficult to maintain. Difficult to move between accounts as career progresses. Forced firm contribution (recruiting/proposals/courses) seem great, but spur several pointless workstreams which are unnecessarily funded

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Big 4 name brand
    - Opportunity to work on technical accounting issues
    - The firm pays for your CPA exam fees and prep course
    - Collegial environment compared to other Big 4

    Cons

    - Compensation that is not commensurate for the amount of hours worked
    - Variance of engagement personnel: some managers are good, others are really bad
    - Little growth for soft skills unless you reach the manager-level

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

    Pros

    Amazingly smart and talented people; wealth of resources to grow your consulting skills and knowledge base; lots of coaching and mentoring if you have an engaged counselor/mentor

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is a joke; firm activity expectations are difficult to fit in with client work; some project managers are still stuck in the "butt in seats" mentality and don't allow or encourage working off site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic about work life balance. While you say it's important, it's difficult to manage both client and firm initiatives effectively AND have a life outside of the company.
