    Pros

    Great company to work for! The sky is the limit in terms of career growth potential . You are in charge of your career. Free coffee as well.

    Cons

    None so far other than 401k can be a lot better.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    > Rather relaxed work environment, take breaks as you need
    > Good benefits (From what I saw, as a contractor I didn't get those)
    > Good place to build Experience
    > Offers Lots of Training for various roles
    > Work from home or office!
    > Rather well balanced between work and life
    > Do a Decent job of putting high value on their employees, Lots of free meals at work is a plus
    > Good amount of vacation time (not as a contractor of course)

    Cons

    > Somewhat political office environment
    > Required employees to take training in their own fields mid-project at times
    > not the best at budget management regarding contractors
    > Was more difficult to get over-time pay as a contractor than it should have been
    > Noticed on occasion the wrong person would be blamed for a project issue
    > Sometimes issues were kept until the last second, which caused a lot of unnecessary hardship for certain employees (myself included), then would not always be willing to pay the related overtime for the trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a bit more realistic and maybe admit when there are problems more openly.

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

    Pros

    High pay, good benefits, some freedom, some great colleagues/co-workers.

    Cons

    Unethical (preach about how ethical they are and make you watch countless CE videos about it) I witnessed my team leader and manager take confidential information directly to other team leads and mangers, totally disregarding the person who bought up the concern. Managers and leads were "clicky", felt like I was back in high school. I guess I was just a bad fit and my project was back at a place I had already worked in the past and didn't care for. I should have my head examined to submitting to the aggressive highering and salary/bonus they threw at me.. My original goal was to be independent consultant, should have stuck to my guns. I ended up rolling off and laying low so I could get out without giving back my bonus. I am better off as an healthcare IT FTE so I can see issues through and make sure the root cause is identified and fixed instead of just patching or dropping issues like Deloitte did for CHI.

    Advice to Management

    I am not going to pretend to know how to fix your company, I guess you'll just have to keep losing business until you figure it out yourselves.

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

    Pros

    NONE I did not experience anything positive.

    Cons

    Delay in start date - months. The 20k sign on bonus is a trap to keep you for two years, if you leave before two years, you must pay back all 20k. Wrong benefits information given by HR. Can't use vacation because of utilization requirement of 90%. Promise of a high annual bonus that turns into 1/3 of what was promised. Very poor management, they care more about personal growth than success of their employees or the project. Hired to do a job within career path, never did that, was moved to do something I was not hired to do and have not done in 15 years. I could go on, but you get the point.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to commercial work. You have no idea what you are doing in DoD environment.

    Pros

    No Known pros. Employee turnover is too high

    Cons

    Indian managers working offshore want to reduce American engineers to third world employees

    Advice to Management

    Know that the standard of living in America is not the same as the standard of living in India. Pay American employees what is due to them.

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

    Pros

    High pay and can work from home sometimes. You are in control of your own career. Lots of free drinks if you're into that.

    Cons

    You have to find your own positions to work at which can be very stressful. Work long hours. Networking is more important than quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have advice to management other than stop overworking employees. But the management does this knowing turnover will be high because this is the optimized solution for making money in consulting.
