    Pros

    Deloitte is a family. It is not a job, it is not a position. It is a life and a lifestyle. The people are amazing, care about you as a person, and they are truly committed to building the best people to help the best clients. Deloitte's leadership are real people who are committed to the business. Like no other firm, Deloitte RUNS the talk they make, they don't just walk it. If there is something you want to do in life, and Deloitte doesn't do it, and if there is a business case to support it, you can make up your own job. But chances are, Deloitte does it, or needs it. Three words: UH MAZE ING!!!

    Cons

    It is fast paced, and you must be very self directed. At the more senior levels, you will truly be expected to contribute to your people, your business, and your clients in new ways. You risk losing some of the team collaboration if you do not have th strength of relationships - just like in a family.

    Advice to Management

    More of the same 90%, and do a little bit more on acculturation senior people into the firm when they join.

    Pros

    Great training, development, and some fantastic people

    Cons

    Federal has gotten into the "butts in seats" model of doing useless work on site for federal organizations to drive up revenue. Has nothing to do with strategy, advisory services, or any other useful skill, and drove rates down and quality suffered. Also forced us away from true competitiors like McKinsey and some of the top firms, and down to typical government contractors. Quite unfortunate. You also end up with AERS and S&O selling very similar (but different of course) solutions to the same client. Walking somewhat of a fine line. Your year end review is completely based off who you know and how you played the game. Has far less to do with your previous work and merit than one assumes, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but gets lost in the web that is the partnership. If you play the game for 2-3 PPDs, you may come to realize that at the end of the year, they didn't hold enough power, or weren't the right PPD to align to. Most counselors do not seem to understand this, and it becomes an 'every man for himself' environment with regards to promotions and career development. In addition, the inner circle takes care of itself through shared sales and revenue, allowing lower performers to be taken care of by those who control RTRAK (sp) by way of being the 'third manager / SM' who gets credit for the sale. While Deloitte is still a fantastic firm, and one of the best places to START a career, especially coming out of the military or college, the game grows old on those who continually perform, and a number of strong managers and consultants have been heading for the door recently, and others are just waiting until bonuses to eject. Bottom line: I found it to be too much BS and game playing for a marginal comp package.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality and returning the firm to what it should be, and what you sell it as to recruits.
