    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

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great company for growing your career. There are many trainings you can sign up for. You can learn technical skills as well as softer skills, i.e. leadership and facilitating consultative sessions. It's all about building relationships with your managers and clients. The path to promotion is always clear but not always straight-forward or easy to make happen (other factors come into play, besides your performance)

    Cons

    Health benefits are not great. Generally, people judge quickly and size you up. Work life balance is not existent.

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

    Pros

    Training, and opportunities to grow are in abundance. Pay is pretty good as well as recognition which results in additional monetary compensation.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult as you get older and more responsibility is added to your personal life such as growing your family or pursuing other opportunities to support your personal happiness. This company reviews performance by comparing you to your peers with no consideration to the fact that everyone has different circumstances. Builds a stressful environment with overly competitive peers, backstabbing and premature promotions for friends of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Measure performance on a set criteria instead of comparing peers. The culture is dangerous and not sustainable for millennials. You will lose your talent faster than ever before if you don’t start thinking about building a more healthy culture fostered on collaboration instead of competition.

    Pros

    Very smart peers, broad client base, great opportunities available upon starting with the firm. Competitive salary, defined ascension plan.

    Cons

    Work-life balance depends greatly on your project leadership/client, limited lifespan for non-technology-implementation projects, lack of dedication to federal mission space. Terrible 401k match, overly competitive peers.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great people, good benefits (6 months maternity leave), diverse experiences, constantly striving to improve, strives to teach their employees new skills

    Cons

    depending on the project long hours, metrics drive people to work in areas they may not be passionate about, can be competitive, still a male dominated leadership, salary is not competative

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees a higher salary - especially Federal sector. Work on supporting female leaders and coaching to PPD (beyond a few select programs).

    Cons

    Still too many managers who have no idea what they are managing, & lack competence in the functional or technical domains.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate the transition to the new operating model.
