    Pros

    Great place to start your career. You get a lot of exposure to clients and different groups, if you are lucky. It looks great on your resume. Federal sector can offer great work and life balance with pretty stable hours.

    Cons

    Deloitte Consulting, even the Federal Practice, attributes little value to a non-MBA/MPA type degrees. Advanced degrees are not valued and are significantly under-compensated compared to MBAs (almost doubly so).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more technical know-how on your teams.

    Pros

    The best parts about working for Deloitte are the benefits and training you receive. The value of the brand on your resume are also fantastic for leveraging future opportunities.

    Cons

    The cons really depend on which service line you work in and location.Work-life balance is tough, especially certain times of the year. I found there are so many layers of review on any client deliverable - even the partners and principals have to have a concurring reviewer sign off on their stuff - that there's limited growth in personal responsibility leading to loss of confidence in individual abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Infuse a sense of why the work you do is important into your employees.

    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.

    Cons

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

    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.
