    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very bright, hard working, and sophisticated staff. Access to challenging and fulfilling work

    Cons

    Up or out is real. There is a "club" mentality, and if you're not in, you're out.

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to your claims of distinct career paths. Don't eliminate good talent because they aren't a future partner.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Big name, lots of resources, organized, good HR, good perks, excellent training

    Cons

    Not publicly traded, all staffing are backdoor deals made between the partners, experience varies widely depending on projects, lots of egos, graded against your peers on a normalized scale. Has a bad reputation in the Federal marketplace, losing accounts to competitors because of rotational business model for analysts. Unsustainable growth. If you aren't on the partner track you are treated like a second class citizen

    Advice to Management

    Work on keeping accounts instead of chasing the next silver tuna.

    Pros

    The overall benefits package is good.

    Cons

    -You are told you have 5 weeks vacation but in reality due to requirements on billing you will never be able to take it.
    -Incompetent managers.
    -The managers seem to think technical work is below them. Yet they give themselves titles such as "Architect".
    -It's obvious they are just ripping the government off. Unfortunately the government is no knowledgable enough to know. So much for "doing the right thing"
    -In regards to technical skills the staff is very lacking. Many meetings devolve into explaining to Deloitte staff very basic concepts. Yet these people are billed as experts in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte federal sector is just another government contractor. You should try to instill in it the values that the commercial side has. It's obvious to anyone who has any technical skills that the team is lacking. Rather then do what the client needs everything is geared towards getting more work. In the long run doing the right thing and giving the right advice will lead to more work.
    Try to remove the legacy Bearing Point staff. It really put me off how lazy they were. My impression of Deloitte Federal is very low and would never work there again.
