    Pros

    The overall benefits package is good.

    Cons

    -You are told you have 5 weeks vacation but in reality due to requirements on billing you will never be able to take it.
    -Incompetent managers.
    -The managers seem to think technical work is below them. Yet they give themselves titles such as "Architect".
    -It's obvious they are just ripping the government off. Unfortunately the government is no knowledgable enough to know. So much for "doing the right thing"
    -In regards to technical skills the staff is very lacking. Many meetings devolve into explaining to Deloitte staff very basic concepts. Yet these people are billed as experts in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deloitte federal sector is just another government contractor. You should try to instill in it the values that the commercial side has. It's obvious to anyone who has any technical skills that the team is lacking. Rather then do what the client needs everything is geared towards getting more work. In the long run doing the right thing and giving the right advice will lead to more work.
    Try to remove the legacy Bearing Point staff. It really put me off how lazy they were. My impression of Deloitte Federal is very low and would never work there again.

    Great company that due to it's size and diversity of offerings is sometimes hard to navigate.

    Pros

    Excellent Salary and bonus packages. Lots of opportunities to develop an eminence area or interests. Many people complain that you have to do a lot of firm contributions. That is true, but I am very strategic about the activities I participate in. Therefore, while there is pressure to have firm contributions, you can focus on the areas that are truly of interest to you. This includes philanthropic/ community activities.

    Great place to build your career with many career models that employees can take advantage of based on their goals. Partner/ Principal/ Director Track if you are interested in managing projects and building revenue. Specialist Track if you are more concerned with building eminence and becoming a recognized SME in an area. Associate track, that is less secure, has less commitment to the company by the employee (i.e., hired for a specific project and potential future work, but not guaranteed).

    Cons

    It is sometimes hard to become visible to the leadership who will be determining your year end performance (bonus, salary, rating).

    Extremely matrixed organization that makes it hard to answer the question, "Who is your supervisor? Who do I work for exactly?"

    Inequity of the real estate management. Some offices are after thoughts and make it very hard to execute some of your job functions. Staff who are not ale to work at the client site have a hard time finding long-term work space.

    The Federal practice is profitable, BUT much of the work is Staff Augmentation and not true consulting. The commercial work is definitely much sexier. However, I have heard that the commercial sector employees burn out a lot faster.

    Lots of Conference Calls and Junk Email...It is exasperating for the first 6 months. After a while you learn which ones to ignore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the junk email. Provide opportunities for Commercial and Federal resources to do an exchange program of sorts so that everyone can learn all aspects of the business.
