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

Pros

Name on your CV
Exit Opportunities

Cons

Severe, unnecessary administrative burdens
Pay structure aka "refreshed compensation plan" just changed for the worse
Bursting at the seams with overburdened practitioners who HATE what they are doing, yet are forced to act otherwise
Value delivered is farcical in federal practice - all a shadow game with complicit gov't clients, at tax payer expense
Disinterested partners and sr. mgrs aka "life liars" aka "cream of the crap"
Deloitte University - DU - a nightmarish indoctrination center certain to fail on every level
Every 'firm activity' or extra-curricular requirement a demonstrable waste of time
Don't be fooled by industry awards in collusion with obscure consulting periodicals
Very few actual learning opportunities
Performance management process nonsensical and lasts entire year
Working on federal holidays
Won't pay for most professional certifications
Good luck finding an interesting project
Work-life what?

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a good diversity program. They do a lot for charities in the local area.

    Cons

    It's obviously called WORK for a reason! Not that I mind hard work... I don't! I gave my 150-200% all the time! But it always seemed the more you did, the more they gave you... without any compensation or thanks in the process. Most of the employees are being stretched too far-- Ones with good work ethic are undermined and railroaded. Too many favorites... the rest will die trying. And nothing seems to change. Your job is safer if you brown nose to management instead of doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider replacing the current CIO, he may be intelligent but wisdom comes with age. Review what middle management is doing to employees. People are not machines and need a life outside of work. Focus on not demanding more than 45 hrs/week of employees. We will move on to better environments as opportunities present themselves. Make sure new employees get the training they need to be successful.
