Pros

- Company if filled with smart, genuine people
- Like peers, compensation is very generous (if you don't do the hourly math)

Cons

- As a junior-mid level staff, client work (and subsequently career trajectory) is highly luck dependent
- There is really no concept of work-life balance; you need to eat, sleep, breathe Deloitte (and be happy doing so) to succeed
- Performance management has become somewhat de-humanized to account for size of organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend as much energy retaining staff/supporting new hires as you do attracting them to the firm

    Pros

    It's difficult to find a consulting agency where the focus is on the quality of the deliverable and not doing things at the absolutely lowest cost. The rest of Deloitte does their best to leverage the strengths of the design driven methodology. Most teams are set up to work collaboratively, in the same space, and most clients are open to feedback about what is being built.

    Cons

    Deloitte isn't a hierarchal organization, so getting permission to do something is nearly impossible. You can use this as motivation to solve problems yourself, but there's rarely a "correct" way to do something. And, additional interaction with offshore resources threatens to cause more off-hours time commitments, something most employees didn't originally sign up for. Also, it's not clear what the long-term compensation plan for Center Associates (Studio employees) are and if it will be competitive with the overall tech landscape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New projects are slow to materialize, so a greater focus on selling will energize current employees and protect the future.
