Current Employee - Federal Business Analyst in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Federal Business Analyst in Washington, DC

I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Large focus on Professional Development and Training.

Great people - large focus on mentoring and "flat" management where partners will interact with younger leadership.

Great work-life balance for consulting as all clients are locally based - and federal hours tend to be more manageable.

Recommend the rotational program for analysts - four projects in two years - to get a broad exposure to federal contracting.

Cons

Still working through the kinks of the Bearing Point Acquisition.

Need to "own your own career" to find the best opportunities, and this often requires luck.

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

    Pros

    -You work with very smart and motivated people and dint usually have to carry anyone else's burden on your shoulders
    -There's a lot of flexibility of thought and action - questions and innovation is encouraged
    - Lots of opportunities to learn, be mentored and mentor
    - More paid vacation, parental leave and other benefits than most firms offer
    - Flexibility options to dial your career up or down based on the current pace of your life
    - If you have the potential, leaders will take genuine interested in promoting you
    - Very robust performance evaluation process - Deloitte has clearly defined expectations from you. You will not ever feel like, "of well, i had no idea i was supposed to do that to get a 2!"
    - In such a large firm that does so many different things, its difficult not find anything that really interests you

    Cons

    - Travel is by far the biggest con. But thats more of an industry wide concern rather than Deloitte specific. Travel can really get hectic and depressing especially if you have a family or health reasons.
    - Too much emphasis on internal work: Deloitte prides its culture and uses internal events to keep its people together. Also, most consultants work on small projects with constantly changing teams. Hence internal work, office events do a good job as far as networking and really feeling a part of a big firm are concerned. However, trying to get involved in these activities, in addition to projects, means you end up working weekends. Not everyone can do that happily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Find ways to reduce travel. In todays economy, selling no travel to a client should be easier, especially if the client is paying for it.
    - Provide at least partial utilization for internal work or work on office events.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary/ Benefits
    Excellent exposure to clients in industries you serve
    Smart colleagues

    Cons

    Internal politics are counter productive
    Long hours & Travel (function of industry as a major player and not of firm specifically)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time to recognize smart talent by taking real measures (not generic company wide rollout). Create atmosphere to remove politics by providing options to folks staffed with the same management.
