    Expect to be a commodity and will squeeze out everything you're worth

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits (25 days of PTO)
    - Good name to put on resume
    - Easy to negotiate a sign-on bonus but you'll be stuck in a 2 year lock-in before you can leave without paying it back.

    Cons

    - Horrible pay for experienced hires. Recruiters were hard to negotiate with but if you're a 22 year old undergrad starting, they'll pay you $70-75k + $10k bonus.
    -Expect to work a TON OF EXTRA hours to earn a "good" year-end review. This means project work AND 200+ hours of firm contributions, proposal writing efforts, and recruiting/volunteer efforts. The raise at the end of the year isn't worth the immense amount of nights & weekends you'll be working. The score/raise isn't guarantee because you're compared to your peers.
    -They don't put you on a project so you can utilize your skill sets and experience. I'm an experienced software tester and they had me on a PMO project scheduling meetings & writing meeting mins. (paper pushing!)
    -They just want bodies on a contract to burn money. Senior mgmt is really obvious in that they don't care about you or the team.
    -They speak about mobility and being able to switch projects....nope. Not as easy as it sounds and is all politics. They expect you to "tough it out" or "suck it up" because you're new.
    -If you've got a technical background and don't want to be in sales/marketing (getting Deloitte to win contracts), then you're seen as less valuable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people - they are your intellectual talent!! Don't get them burnt out and be a firm that DOES things rather than be paper pushing pretending to do real work. Hire talent to run SUCCESSFUL projects. Don't win contracts and have failed projects as a result. It's embarrassing.
