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

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, great coworkers, and a seemingly never ending wealth of knowledge. The managers are usually great, Deloitte seems to really care about you, and you are treated with respect.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be long hours and the firm expects you to contribute to pro-bono work on top of your normal hours. Can be a high stress environment (with high reward).

    Advice to Management

    Rapidly develop a Federal expansion so that consultants are not limited to primarily Washington, DC.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities, prestige, room for advancement, leadership generally open to change and responsive to criticism. Certainly no worse than any other large accounting firm, maybe better.

    Cons

    Salary lags a bit and seems only to rise significantly if you threaten to leave or are brought on as an experienced hire. Despite the wide range of opportunities, it's easy to get stuck on a particular project.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce turnover by increasing salaries. Student loan repayment assistance wouldn't hurt either.

    Great work environment as well as work-life balance. There is much flexibility in being able to choose your projects and the career path you want to set within the firm. Benefits and work culture and the people are an added bonus as well.

    Cons

    Depends on project and work location. Compensation lower than market.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. Government experience. You may get lucky and land an easy project.

    Cons

    If you already have a good job, do not leave it to join Deloitte. Long hours, no work life balance. Pay looks good, but with all of the extra hours worked your hourly rate is actually very low. Culture is cutthroat. All they care about is money you make them. Management just wants to utilize you as much as they can. Mostly single, divorced, or people with no family or friends. Lots of competition. You can't take vacation as it will hurt your "utilization". Kills your family, social, and personal life. Stress. Pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making your employees happy and standing up for them.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing leadership and opportunities for professional development as long as you own your own career (which means drive and, if needed, force conversations).

    Cons

    Make sure to over-communicate own personal and professional aspirations and do your homework on how to ensure those jive with what your leadership needs you to do. Have the conversation...no...Drive the conversation because no one else will do it for you.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to support the conversations that allow your people to find what energizes and engages them while meeting your overall strategic and fiscal year objectives.
