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

    Pros

    - People
    - If in federal practice... comfortable hours/lifestyle

    Cons

    - If in federal technology practice... LONG projects, so lack of variability
    - Inability to move around the firm in the short term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow movement between federal and commercial practice more easily.

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

    Pros

    - Learning and development opportunities
    - Great projects if you know the right people and play the game
    - Bright people, especially at the Analyst and Consultant levels
    - Large alumni network, especially of Analysts and Consultants who leave to do more interesting things

    Cons

    - Pay increases little from year-to year (even for 1 and 2 rated performers)
    - Very high expectations for "extracurricular" activities outside of project work
    - At the lower levels, you have to complete for ratings by gaming the system
    - Lots of corporate-speak, bureaucracy, etc.
    - Some projects deliver very little value to clients, which can be difficult to live with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice. The cons that I mentioned are just part of working at a large consulting firm. They actually do try quite hard to do a good job, but realistically, don't think that things could be improved. Try it for a few years. If you don't like it, you'll have solid opportunities afterwards.

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Great benefits. Really smart top management and really down to earth. Community service day once per year but a great and generous event, I loved it. Great training and a large free catalog of books of books, online of course.

    Cons

    Poor live-work balance. Leave by 5 and you'll notice most employees are still there and wondering where you're going! You need to find a group to work with, you can't be on your own and survive. Annual goal expectations are very annoying, especially if you don't have a group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider life-work balance, employees constantly working 11+ hours on a daily basis is not a healthy approach. The management of this company is one of best that I had the pleasure to deal with.

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

    Pros

    A very "mature" corporate environment. You're surrounded by very talented people.

    Cons

    Very systematized. Either you pull the oar exactly when and how they need it pulled, or you don't "fit". Everyone is in BD, no matter what they tell you in the interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hearing "you're too expensive" from someone who travels into town on Deloitte's dime every week and doesn't bill one hour is hypocritical. Deloitte's overhead on moderate salaries is the issue.

    Pros

    Investing in the future business

    Cons

    Very focuses on process
    Tendency to reduce risk through mind-numbing beaurcracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on some of the bureaucracy or de-risking that just steals time from employees
    More transparent compensation process

    Pros

    Greater resume brand booster. You must network really hard to get on projects once you start out.

    Cons

    The firm is too large. Stay away from the Federal Practice if you want real consulting experience
