Elite consulting firm with ponderous culture

Current Employee - Senior Manager  in  Arlington, VA
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Arlington, VA

I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Firm resources are fantastic for conducting one's work and developing yourself (e.g. Deloitte University, which is great)
Personnel at all levels are smart and motivated - best collective group I've ever worked with
Firm contributions - when led by a strong PPD - are great for professional enhancement
Even 'met expectations' ratings at year end can get generous AIP

Cons

Client service is secondary to demonstrating your knack for operating in the culture, such as performing firm contributions (aka voluntary 9th/10th hour assignments)
Matrixed collaboration-based model promotes non responsiveness/lack of accountability almost at an epidemic level
Performance evaluation process is broken. Although based on due diligence, rating process is subjective and brand/eminence criteria has morphed into a measure of popularity more than impact
Since so much face time is needed to succeed (in this case, Rosslyn VA HQ), Deloitte doesn't embrace folks who sit at client sites
Since nothing is written down (org charts, policies for example), no one understands how to succeed in the culture except by word of mouth or after you've stumbled

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Address performance evaluation process and document what the tactics of success are (such as a performance accountability matrix or promotion criteria specific to a title)
Embrace the diversity of work performed across all Segments; right now if your job has RPH less than $130, it and the people working it are labeled as staff aug almost like an epithet
