Pros

*Pay and benefits
*Great if you want to work 60+ hours a week and climb the corporate ladder

Cons

*Employees are expected to do their work for their client and then do extra work for Deloitte (150-200 hours of corporate contributions per year). In consulting of course we expect to help with an occasional proposal, but the constant drive to contribute more is draining.
*If you have a family, a life, or just working for a paycheck, these requirements are hard to meet
*Told by manager "work-life balance here is BS."

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your federal workforce, utilization and contribution goals do not fit with the types of contracts that we do in the federal area.

Deloitte's aggressiveness in business is a turn off to many government clients.

    orgizational skills

    Cons

    a lot of stress

    no bonus
    appreciation is superficial and isn't customized (mass appreciation)
    appluase awards given to a whole team not neccessarily the best performers.. consistent with the commnt above

    Advice to Management

    hire more so that enagagements are properly staffed and if not pay mroe to compensate for tremenedous work load,hours and stress.

    Pros

    Promotions are generally fair- just make sure you bill enough hours and you'll be fine.
    Work is relevant, significant, and lots of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Base salary is not competitive for those with serious technical/programming skills.
    Hours can be good one week and horrendous the next with 0 ability to predict either even on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Create a real option to have work life balance in exchange for lowered pay increases. This will boost retention. In the future, you will need to pay more to retain top programming talent.
