    Pros

    Great people. Great benefits. If you have drive and are given the right opportunities there is a big opportunity for increased salary.

    Cons

    Can get lost in the shuffle. Year end process is very arbitrary.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Deloitte provides unique opportunities to work as part of a truely innovative consulting firm that is first to market with many of the solutions it offers to clients. Deloitte provides practitioners of all levels opportunities to drive their career and ontribute as a leader in a multitude of capacities in either internal or external projects. Deloitte's focus on professional development provides great opportunities to make yourself more marketable either within the consulting sector or within many industries, on their dime.

    Cons

    Deloitte's work life "balance" is a joke. It is almost impossible to meet your required utilization rate (accounting for holidays & PTO) without consistently working 50 hours a week at the client site, and then contributing to a multitude of "firm contributions" and business development on top of that. Deloitte's heavily bureuacratic nature turns you into just another number come review time, so don't rely on the ability of any local leadership to support you when it comes to that promotion, bonus, or raise that you have been working for. Although the salary and bonus look pretty sweet on the surface, once you realize all of the additional work that is involved outside of your normal client delivery, you'd be better off with a smaller consulting firm, unless you are just starting out your career.

    Advice to Management

    With the state of the current job market, it is not longer reasonable for Deloitte's retainment model to be "you should feel priviledged to work at Deloitte". Work on your work life "fit" (there is no way there will ever be a balance at Deloitte), examine your extensive and bureaucratic annual review process, and look to exceed your competitors (instead of just trying to keep pace with them) when it comes to compensation, if you can't fix anything else.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional. It is a firm that prides itself on being one of the Big 4, and how they operate is indeed a notch above. If you want to work with professionals, learn how to be a consulting professional, or just work with some great minds in the business, this is a great place to do so. For young professionals who want the fast-paced, high-life of consulting, Deloitte is the place. It looks good on a resume too.

    Cons

    Their top-tier approach to business and their pricing structure hurts them in markets where premium prices are not affordable. In my experience they could not compete in the local market and it has eroded their footprint considerably. They maintain a very high expectation of loyalty and service to the company. There is no such thing as a work-life balance. Work comes first. Service and duty to the firm becomes your life. This was a major drawback to someone with a young family and a need to stay local. Travel is expected. You go where the work is. "Extracurricular" activities to build the firm's image and preeminence is a must. To not be involved is to get yourself quickly marked as not a team player during the yearly concensus/review period.

    To pour 110% into the company is to be average among your peers. To really stand out in the firm means you give 150% and more.

    Senior management is removed from the responsibility of fostering deep relationships with their teams. They become increasingly removed as they are engulfed in the bureaucracy of the top leadership. It leaves people feeling unappreciated or unsupported when tough times come.

    Advice to Management

    Change the way leadership is involved in their teams. Make sure that the structure isn't so autonomous as to remove the relationship building and mentoring that is so vitally needed, especially in smaller markets.


  4. "Lots of opportunity, commercially, but declining opportunities in public services outside of the Washington, DC area"

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to:
    - Get involved in firm activities
    - Travel if on a commercial project
    - Experience on commercial projects

    Cons

    - Work/Life is a choice not a balance
    - If not in Washington DC area hard to make utilization rates on gov't projects since clients usually don't accept travelers from out of town

    Advice to Management

    Change the business development model of the public services practice to mirror the commercial services practice.
