    Pros

    This is a huge company with their hands in quite a few technologies.

    Cons

    If you don't know the right people, there is extremely limited mobility within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely less on networking, and more on merit.

    Pros

    For the most part, the people at this firm are amazing. It's a great feeling to work with people that are on par with you intellectually. Everyone who works here is motivating and stimulating and outgoing and most of the time more than willing to help. This is a huge firm with endless opportunities so while it's easy to get stuck or trapped on one project or in one area, the opportunities do exist for changing your entire career without ever leaving the firm if you're willing to work hard enough for it. AWESOME PTO benefits - starting at 5 weeks straight from campus.

    Cons

    Difficult to balance your time with such high expectations - sometimes feels like having two jobs when you need to deliver for your client as well as contribute back to Deloitte through business development and people and eminence contributions. Sometimes the "own your own career" motto can be feel untrue when the direction you want to go doesn't align with the direction the firm needs you to head in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider spending more time properly aligning incoming hires to areas aligned with their existing skill sets and interests/passions to prevent apathetic feelings towards project work and to increase employee retention.

    An excellent career choice for an aspiring partner

    Pros

    Deloitte is a partnership. The culture and incentives of a partnership are very different from that of a corporate environment. You will be required to build the skills that will make you a business partner (communication, flexibility, diversity of thought and skills, planning, sales, engagement delivery). But it's also in every partners' best interest to grow more partners, so you'll find a mentoring/apprenticeship culture. The Firm has, in recent years, become even more aware and encouraging of work-life fit, though the experience varies greatly within the Firm.

    Cons

    Like many professional services firms, Deloitte will consume you if you allow it. Individuals who do not do well in setting and managing boundaries experience burn out, and there won't be many people (if anyone) to stop this from happening.

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

    Pros

    Flat organization, lots of really smart, really great people, leadership is very personable, a ton of opportunities to join high-visibility projects, opportunities to lead.

    Cons

    The work-life balance here isn't the greatest (you work 40 hours some weeks, and 65+ other weeks), compensation structures is really frustrating, you don't have time to use all your vacation days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better base raises and focus less on bonuses.

    Pros

    Deloitte invests in their people, providing ample opportunity to enhance one's career through trainings, certifications, graduate assistance programs, internal firm contributions and client opportunities.

    Cons

    Compensation is competitive, but who would want more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall very satisfied. Work/Life balance is coming along. In the professional client service space it is hard to achieve a great work/life balance, but Deloitte is working on flexible work schedules and it is improving.

    Pros

    Good name to your resume, they can easily match whatever salary requirements you requested

    Cons

    They people are the major cons. It's a politically charged environment of idiots who lie on reviews when they have to, old people who should retire already, and young people who are trying to desperately to move up the ladder. It's a terrible environment to exist and you are ranked against your peers instead of your performance. I had a career counselor who was an idiot that never paid attention to me. I had a manager who just flat out lied to clients and employees and a talent staffing lady who tried to match me to positions I had no previous experience with. It's a stupid environment to work in and anyone who is talented leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company, you are what's wrong with Deloitte Federal consulting

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You will be on-boarded and have lots of information thrown at you.
    It is a very structured environment that will reward you in theory if you work very hard.
    There is a lot of networking opportunities and sense of community

    Cons

    Feedback can be hit or miss.
    You can work excessive hours and not be compensated for them.
    very little small margin of error
    Expectations are not always communicated well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to get to know who you are hiring and how to make employees feel less alienated

    Pros

    Can't think of one, oh they hired me. Worked there 5 years.

    Cons

    Full of discriminating folks especially in HR towards folks not in HR, you have to wonder how this happens. They do hire veterans but do not count on any assistance or understanding if you have a military related disability. Just a terrible place to work, do not believe all the hype they will feed you. You will regret it if you quit your current job to go there so please learn from my mistake and stay far away from them. Wish you the best of luck.

    Pros

    The people are intelligent, and you will learn a great deal in a very short amount of time. A wild ride that is quite enjoyable. Large company with awesome resources. Excellent to have on your resume.

    Cons

    You have to always cover your own behind, because that is top priority for everyone else. If its you or them, lets just say its going to be you.
