Pros

- If you're working to build pedigree on your resume/CV, Deloitte is a name that is widely recognized.
- Training is encouraged.
- Exposure to a variety of clients.

Cons

- The concept of "one Deloitte" is just a myth. There's a virtually insurmountable dichotomy between the public sector and commercial sector. Want commercial experience? If you've joined the public sector side, forget it. Look elsewhere.
- Be prepared to be aligned with projects that you're not qualified for and/or are not interested in. Like most other consulting firms, Deloitte is just a body shop. If you're lucky enough to land on a good project and work under leadership that protects you, you may have a shot at advancing in your career. Otherwise, expect to grind out long hours on a project that doesn't hold your interest / match your skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Deloitte should revisit its commitment to women and minorities in its workplace and strategy for retaining them. Sure, they have WIN (Women's Initiative Network) and a variety of internal diversity groups. It's still not enough. The engagements (particularly those within the Public Sector) are dominated by Caucasian males, who promote from within their personal networks.

Consider revamping the performance evaluation process. It's heavily subjective and biased. Change its focus to actual employee performance, not political affiliation within the firm.

    Perfectly fine place to work, unless you came over from BearingPoint in the integration

    Pros

    Health & Fitness subsidy (company pays for half of eligible expenses, up to $500)
    Brand recognition (it looks good on a resume later)

    Cons

    Those of us that came over as a result of the BearingPoint acquisition got screwed. Many people were below market vale for their experience and were not given an opportunity to renegotiate. Also, the culture is still very much an "us vs. them" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the money to keep good resources, otherwise many people will leave after the year-end process is complete. Some folks have been waiting 18 months for an evaluation that could actually yeild an increase in compensation.

    Great clients
    Opportunity to work on interesting clients
    Great place to develop technical skills

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment
    You're either in the "in crowd" or you're out

    Constant Chaos
    Politics is an understatement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean House
    Ask yourself why the Turnover is high
    Teach the Directors how to respect clients and people
