    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 (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.

    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.

    Pros

    Deloitte has very good benefits and places emphasis on work/life balance. For Managers and above you get 5 weeks PTO. For women this is an excellent employer as they have generous mat leave benefits. Men are also accorded parental leave. Deloitte acknowledges non-traditional families so partners of the LGBT community are eligible for benefits. Lately the firm has been shutting down completely from Christmas Day to New Year's to allow practitioners to completely unplug and recharge sans guilt. When the firm exceeds it's targets all practitioners receive an extra treat like a $500 Gift Card in addition to annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Depending on your management team things can be tricky. Some Managers encourage working from home and insist that you take all your allocated PTO while some especially in the Consulting arena are most concerned with billable hours and give short shrift to work/life balance. I would encourage anyone considering employment with the firm to be upfront during the interview phase and let them know if you need to leave at 3:00PM each day for kiddie pick up. Many managers are willing to work with you on your schedule as long as the job gets done at the end of the day and an you are reachable when needed. As a working mother with young kids I was able to negotiate my schedule to work around my kids needs.
    As a firm under the jurisdiction of the SEC 401K options can be limited. We cannot invest in a firm we audit so playing the Mega Lotto is verboten.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing and rewarding good people.
