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

    Pros

    Great experiences, lots of training in soft skills, work with very smart, motivated professionals who are constantly trying to make themselves better. People very much care about their jobs and performing well, both for their client and themselves.

    Deloitte also cares a lot about their people and if you are passionate about something, they will allow you to do it.

    Cons

    Competitive teams. Sometimes more about who you know than anything else.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with top tier talent who cared about getting things right the first time. Advancement opportunities were available and encouraged. Excellent benefits package and vacation. Lots of programs for advancing women and networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be tough to stand out. Pressure to work long hours sometimes just for the sake of showing you can...not necessarily because it was required by the workload.

    Pros

    Depending on the project that you are on, you get exposed to a lot of unique project experiences and you are always expected to be a high performer and you get to really exercise your brain.

    Firm contribution activities and "extracurricular" events are mandatory, which can range from researching about the industry or editing word documents.

    Pros

    You gain experience quickly and have great opportunities after you leave.

    Cons

    Hours are pretty terrible and most people used to getting straight A's and being considered top of your class will still be rated average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on employee retention and quality of life.
