Outrageous utilization target

Current Employee - Senior Consultant  in  Washington, DC
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC

I have been working at Deloitte full-time for less than a year

Pros

Brand, Culture, People are nice, Big firm

Cons

Too much eminence building requirement i.e. white paper/proposal writing outside of normal 40 hours week
Training requirement is hard 40 hrs requirement normal 40 hours work week
Utilization target should be 80% not 90% that's crazy, which means you can't take advertised vacation without being penalized. So you have to make up the time of your vacation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce Utilization target to atleast 80% to retain top talent in high demand
Eminence does not add satisfaction for employee retention, so abolish it

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Training opportunuties, and the opportunity to work with the leading players in every industry

    Cons

    Country club environment/mentality, you are either in or out. You need to have a "god father" partner once you get to the senior manager/partner level, otherwise life will be very difficult, and you will be frozen out. The best gigs are for the connected partners and senior managers. Management does not keep promises, so beware

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to back to the original ideals of this great firm.
