    Pros

    Amazing project experiences and best compensation in the market by a long shot

    Cons

    Consulting takes a toll on your life in the relentless travel and immense pressure from time to time because of a blowhard who oversells and rides on the backs of his team who kill themselves to get it done.

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about firm contributions. Too many people just checking the box and put no soul into it just to say they did something.

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

    Pros

    Worked done using core tech no fancy frameworks.
    Everything is based on core java.
    No knowledge or frameworks required for the majority of the projects.
    Prepaid Gift cards if you perform well.
    Company always throws in additional holidays (up to a week) as gift to their employees.
    Women empowerment is priority for the firm.
    HR and Tech can't influence each other.

    Cons

    Workload can be quite diff based on project to project. Federal department can be relaxed to where Consulting can be stretched sometimes.
    Most of the project is based on 15 years of legacy tech.
    No knowledge or frameworks required for the majority of the projects.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big Brand to be associated with.
    Lot of exposure
    Learning and Development

    Cons

    While hiring people, they sell it as a zero or less travel roles especially any ERP Consulting positions ( SAP, ORACLE, etc ). But once you get recruited, its the same as core consulting where you are expected to travel 80 to 100 percent. Do not believe if some recruiter tells you that its a less or no travel role in USDC.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not mislead the applicants saying that the travel is zero or less in USDC when the reality is different. At least set the expectations right in the beginning in the interview itself so that applicants can make the decision which suits them the best. We relocate and deal with all immigration issues only to find that what ever was told about travel in USDC is a BIG LIE.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Five weeks vacation
    Remote work opportunities

    Cons

    A work/life balance does not exist
    "Up or out" mentality
    Instructed to bill 9 hours per day on project but expected to work 12+ hours
    Everything is a "slide deck" (with no tangible solutions, just fluff)
    Numerous bosses (at the time of this post I have 5 managers not counting Talent, yet none of my bosses are responsible for providing input during my year end review).
    Deloitte is a "Boys Club" (if you're not in the club, you are labeled and limited).
    Expected to maintain a 90+% billable utilization AND expected to find your own projects (Resource Management is a joke) through "your network" (how can you build a network and be 90+% utilized? That's where the work/life balance issue comes in). Avoid being aligned with the Delivery Center in Orlando at all costs!

    Advice to Management

    None! You wouldn't take it anyway and you're too far gone for any corrective measures.
    Advice to potential employees: They want people they can mold into "Firm" robots and program to live Deloitte. Don't go there if all you want is a job. The way this "Firm" operates is good for someone to collect knowledge move on fast.
