I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Opportunities to work with all sorts of organizations and get exposure to how different organizations handle similar problems; experience with numerous kinds of work from audit to implementation projects to security assessments to business process improvement work; 5 weeks paid PTO at this level each year; Bonuses for completing a certification related to your line of work (CPA, CIA, CISA, CISSP, etc.); Health benefits include yearly allowance for partial coverage of purchase of certain sports equipment/fees; Opportunities for continuing on to top level management come quicker than at other organizations and bring high salaries/profit-sharing and excellent pensions; Excellent open door policy; Majority of managers are truly invested in the company and strive to see success with their employees; Trainings and reference documentation well thought out and accessible; Ability to specialize in any way you like (so long as you are willing to travel and the opportunity hasn't been fully staffed); Has weathered the recession pretty well and projects are being sold left and right.

Cons

At this level, you could easily be making more out in industry for the same job; Workload balance is not smoothed out throughout the year, and not even just limited to busy season times, meaning typically working more than 40 hours a week; Very hard to disconnect when on PTO or at home; Jobs you get staffed on locally are sometimes more based on HR being able to find a "warm body" than getting staffed on a job to further your career path and specialization; Travel can be very unforgiving; Very stressful at this level, since you're doing the work of both a regular consultant and a manager, and managing both, so many people get weeded out at this time; Majority of ability to move up depends on evaluation/compensation processes, which, if not taken seriously by your counselor or managers to show up or prepare for the meetings, can lead to you getting passed over; Manager abilities and attitudes toward flexibility on working hours/project deliverables can differ drastically; National level all hands calls seem to focused solely on bolstering partners and soon-to-be partners in their good work and disparage and/or ignore any recognition or opportunities for managers and below.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware that at the current state of compensation, you are losing some of the best talent for new consultants and senior consultants. I have seen far too many of my favorite seniors and managers leave the firm over compensation and the best new potential recruits accept a job elsewhere. I just hope that it is corrected soon enough as we are already severely lacking in experienced senior consultants and a bit management heavy, leaving a big gap to fill between new hires and managers. I am also afraid that by default, many people who stay onboard will be those not found eligible for running a similar team out in industry through the industry interview process and the quality of our work will decrease over the coming years with mediocre management put in place by default.
