I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Motivated employees, offers challenging opportunities, great mentoring; can maintain work life balance - wherever possible. Inclusive culture. Global work opportunities available to those desire and able to demonstrate performance.

Cons

Up or out culture puts high pressure on performance; highly metric driven; work can be insanely busy; can involve extensive travel (this could be negative to some, positive to others)

Advice to Management

Focus on long-term employee development rather than year to year cycles; but otherwise excellent focus, strategy and execution!

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The only pro is that name recognition, yet compare to the likes of McKinsey, BCG, and Bain, Deloitte is only in the upper-middle tier at best. - Some at the very top management (e.g. Jim Moffatt) are true visionary, other low level PPDs (at least in the Federal sector) are nothing but glorified sales people.

    Cons

    - More than 70% of the people in the Deloitte Federal/Public Sector are former BearingPint people from the acquisition in 2009. Many in the BP management were made PPDs to prevent attrition. As a result you see rampant nepotism where those PPDs promotes those old comrades from old BP, or put those young, inexperienced old BP people as project leads. And during the so called "consensus meetings" (or performance evaluation) they flatter each other like old flames. - I guess this is true for other Federal contractors in the DC area, but Deloitte is nothing but a government milking machine. You should see some of the projects going on here where hundreds of consultants are staffed on a federal client project and doing nothing or just shoving papers yet billing $300-$500/hr. And many are long term contracts (5+ years). Talk about wasting tax payers' money. - The so called "firm activities" are nothing but free labor to the company. They track how many hours you spend your evening hours networking, writing papers or proposals, recruiting, etc. Those with family and little kids are penalized just because they value family times and cannot meet the stringent requirements. They call this "you control your own career". - Training is a joke. All the internal training is conducted by, you guessed it, internal consultants. You get firm contribution hours if you give training to other consultants. So you see people sign up to lead when they are not professional trainers or even qualified to do so. Talk about blind leading the blind. - Human Resources who's primary job is to staff people on projects are not doing their job. You see lots of people on bench and you are on your own to find your own next projects if there are no openings within your own network (which is often the case since the same opening will be competed among people who has the same network). I guess the mantra "you control your own career" is true.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice in world that will change the mindset of the old PPDs coming from the defunct BearingPoint.

    Pros

    Deloitte offers many benefits in the work environment. Co-Workers are always an added value.

    Cons

    When budget cuts occur they do not look at the complete value of the individual that is being let go.
