    Pros

    Transparent - Culture is stated and is adhered to
    Right fit - For me it fits perfectly with my personality, work ethic, and goals.
    Long-term committment - This is a company that I have a desire to stay with, I have no desire to seek employment elsewhere.
    Work-Life Committments - With the right time management skills and priority settings, I'm able to making everything work between my career and personal life.

    Cons

    I do not see any 'Cons', with anything the more value you put into something the more you get out of it. I suggest not working here if you do not value investing your time, energy, and passion. The intention is that you will work to fulfil Client's expectations - sometimes that means travel, extra time & dedication - however these same things assist with advancing your experience, education, and reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Very professional organization that is continuing to thrive, especially in Federal sector. I'm very grateful that the repuation that I've heard about is completely lived up to now that I'm experiencing it first hand.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Numerous trianing opportunities, maternity leave (8 weeks +) paternity leave (3 weeks), very competitive pay structure, volunteering and networking are highly encouraged, young work force, numerous office locations, remoting/working from home on some days is acceptable based on your clients.

    Cons

    work life balance is preached but not always possible. You have to be disciplined to turn off from work otherwise it will take over your life. Senior Consultant and below: Utilization/Billing hours is your top priority

    Advice to Management

    More firm activities should be counted toward utilization since there is such an emphasis on them.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Firm believes the mantra that "you are in charge of your own career" and really works with practitioners to plan an individualized path. Every project I've seen in the organization has been squarely rooted in adding value to the client - the firm seems to turn away traditional, staff augmentation work. Comp and benefits are also top notch.

    Cons

    The company has had significant growth in recent years, support systems are still catching up.

    Pros

    This is truly a great place to work. This is a company that recognizes the value in it's people and ensures to invest in them in all areas (e.g. work/life balance, salary, benefits, training). Amazing career growth opportuntiies. Promotion comes when you're ready, not after someone else leaves.

    Cons

    The nature of the business requires it to react to client needs. At times this can result in swift changes in your work assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

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

    Pros

    Strong degree of independence in how you get from A to B, as long as you deliver value results (value to client, or hitting agreed upon project milestones on dates agreed to).

    Cons

    Really need to be comfortable with networking! At all levels within the company! Need to establish trust to get that initial gig, then lining up trust with resource managers for future gigs.

    Advice to Management

    Recent move to performance-based pay is good. However, relentless focus on "cost cutting" to improve the bottom line will rot the company out from the heart going outward...starting with sales support. Refocus on the basics like printing and design. Consider performance-based measures for sales (for service teams involved in pursuit process, and holding partners more accountable for pursuits that do not win...especially after being advised "no way in hell" will we win...
