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

    Pros

    Great education program - Deloitte University is gorgeous and the on-the-job training is solid. Their staff is well educated, smart, and driven. Benefits package is good.

    Cons

    Culture can be intense and exhausting - burnout is a real issue. Quality of management varies widely - some are great, some are horrid. I had a manager take issue with me taking leave for a family funeral.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative of your staff - often there's the expectation that staff work hard with little appreciation or feedback. Be more generous with feedback and coaching. Give staff a chance to learn to lead and mentor earlier so they can thrive in manager roles.

    Pros

    Great company to work to for.

    Cons

    Deloitte will push you to your limits and some employees may not know how to balance this pressure, I have never had an issue with this in my career, it has always pushed me to greater heights.

    Pros

    Great company. Flexible, lots of opportunities, tremendous learning experience. Culture and people are great. Will work a lot but lots of time off between holidays and PTO.

    Cons

    Finding/staying on projects is tough when you first start, which can be stressful. Lot of pressure to network, although networking does prove extremely useful.

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

    Pros

    A lot of training, They will pay for school and cert and etc. Great pyramid setup and you can easily talk to different higher ups. There is a pension after 3 years but the average turn over is 1.5 years. Makes most revenue out of the big four. Looks to be the number one in Cyber in consulting. Can move and try new projects and roles all the time.

    Cons

    Benefits are really bad compare to other firms. 401K only gives you 25% of each percent you put up to 6%. So if you put 6, they give you 1.5%

    Pros

    Great benefits! Interesting work and very bright and motivated teams.

    Cons

    It is not a 40 hour a week job. Only way to earn additional vacation is by going the management route. There is no avenue for additional vacation time due to length of employment.

    Pros

    Great place to start out of college. A lot of motivated individuals.

    Cons

    Unless you are gunning for a PPD position, this may not be the right place for type B individuals. A lot of strategy type work and deck building. Not for those who want to get hands on experience.

    The opportunities are endless. Just get into the company and you have doors to go into whatever you want

    Cons

    It's a big company. Like all big companies, you end up being more of a pawn than a king.

    "Experienced Hires, Stay Away!!"

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

    Pros

    1. I would put having Deloitte on your resume as a positive, but working for Deloitte will put an experienced hire back in their career.

    Cons

    Summary: If you are an experienced hire stay away!

    1. No client work that represents actual job posting.
    -I interviewed for a specialized role in the technology field and am an experienced hire. When I started to look for client work I talked to several partners about working in the role I was hired to do and I was told there was no work in this field. Right now on my client site they have me working on contract and requirements. This is no way to treat experienced hires. I have talked to several other experienced hires and they have all had the same experience. This seems like a trend.

    2. Firm Initiatives.
    -Deloitte expects you to come after your long day of client work and participate in firm activities and do more work outside of the office on top of your 40+ week. Your client site might be an hour a half away from the Rosslyn office too.

    3. "Technology Group"
    - A lot of the people who are in the "technology group" do not know anything about technology.

    4. People think they are smarter than everyone.
    -The things I have heard people say are so obnoxious. "You can tell who the Deloitte people are in the room", "That is the difference between hiring Deloitte and hiring a competitor", " he presents like a Deloitte person". Please, keep the obnoxious comments to yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Treat experienced hires with respect and have them do the job they were hired to do!
