    Pros

    Payscale was good for enviornment. Nice atomosphere, up on techonolgy.

    Too many expectations on your time. Need high utilization, training hours, firm contributions and charity work to move upward in the company. Hard to do while have a certain number of billable hours. Push to travel, not great for working parents.

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

    Pros

    The people are top notch. There is a sense of collaboration but more so at the junior staff, senior consultant and below levels.

    Cons

    Work life fit is more balanced for senior consultant and below. Manager and above are more subject to the up or out model and hence endure more stress / imbalance. Without a direct line of sight to Partners, doing good work just isn't enough. Need network for protection when firm performs average or poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Truly care about / for the people. Follow through with actions, not just words.

    Pros

    Brand name, good networking structured training programs

    Cons

    Very little transparency in the review process, networking internally is apparently more important than executing externally. If you are network with the PPs then you are great or else you re a pariah

    Advice to Management

    Just don't focus on big talkers, also focus on practitioners that want to do good work.
