    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As one of the "Big 4" Deloitte hires the best graduates and professionals. If you are not sure what you want to do, but are smart enough you can find a home here. There is a limitless supply of challenges. It was fun to take on a new client to figure out what they needed and wanted to receive from the company.

    Cons

    Long hours that need to charged to a client code. It was never fun when management decided that you had meet a minimum billing quota for certain periods of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for and mentor your junior staff. If you want to keep people and have them develop into successful professionals then you need to make the time to train them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some flexibility on which projects you work on, lots of politics & back-stabbing overshadows a small group of great people

    Cons

    Extreme politics, entry level salary isn't great, benefits are standard, nothing special. Very long hours, lack of recognition for a job well done. Huge pressure on billable hours, lots of people inflate them

    Advice to Management

    Entrust more power to local offices, evaluate on merit not politics

    "Good Place, Where Networking Trumps Everything"

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Hartford, CT
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Hartford, CT
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Great career opportunities in IT, audit, tax
    - Good pay, compared to other IT consulting companies (Accenture, IBM, etc)
    - You can use a combination of technical and business knowledge in solving client problems. It is not one or the other.
    - They try to staff projects regionally. This reduces cross-country travel.
    - The general work and travel environments are good.

    Cons

    - Project staffing as well as career rise is driven more by who you know than your competence. Deloitte has taken the "networking is everything" sentiment too far.
    - Projects, typically, are short (3 months or so). Therefore, there is a constant need to work to get the next project.
    - Regional staffing, combined with a who-you-know model, feels a bit like nepotism. Regional staffing also has a positive (see above).
    - Not much offshore development

    Advice to Management

    - Deloitte feels like a tradiitional consulting company, i.e., they way consulting was ten years ago. It needs to become more process-driven, less relationship driven.
