    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of resources at your disposal; true emphasis on work-life balance- core part of the culture - work hard, play hard; very active national level women's initiative; Well-respected Federal Practice allowing for little to no travel in DC-metro area.

    Cons

    It is definitely an up-or-out mentality which is not for everyone; It is important to find the right mentors and advocates in leadership, or you can get lost in the mix; Many people wish there was more transparency in the promotion and salary process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think a bigger/ more formal emphasis on research and publications would create a strong base to launch strategic engagements from and attract additional top-tier talent.

    Pros

    Networking, professional conferencing to discuss real world business solutions, friendly people, travel,

    Cons

    No real management structure. Once you roll off a project, no one really cares about you. It's profit driven, so the care about the people is only happens in theory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a real superior-subordinate atmosphere, where people can actually use a chain for resolving issues with internal staff as well as clients.

    Great place to start a career, challenging as you move up

    Pros

    Solid salary and investment in milestone training programs.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is talked about, but it is up to each individual to find it. The company rejoices in long hours and dedication, but rewards are not based on effort nor necessarily on impact, but on being at the right place at the right time. Networking is critical to success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the apprenticeship part of the culture from the Partners on down. Make sure that Senior Managers are mentoring Managers - that link in the chain is broken.
