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

    Pros

    Deloitte's federal practice has the best leadership I've seen in the federal space. What is inspiring about how they operate is providing stretch opportunities, and enabling more junior consultants to get in front of clients, attend events, learn, grow. The top leader is a fan of getting out of the way and letting his team shine, a huge demonstration of his confidence. The firm is well organized around federal contracting and is attracting some of the brightest newcomers.

    Cons

    Very large federal contractor so easy to get lost if you do not find the right partner sponsors

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your teams - not only top performers but also high potentials (and be thorough/don't miss any). Many folks that have great talent easily get lost only because they don't have a sponsor.

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

    Pros

    Pays well. Fantastic social impact and pro-bono consulting work. Smart, driven, passionate people work here and show up every day ready to accomplish whatever's ahead of them, which is inspiring

    Cons

    Peer competition is terrifyingly ever-present. You are constantly presented with firm initiatives (volunteer roles), that easily count for an extra 15% of your weekly working hours. Then, you're obligated to network to maintain a positive relationship with colleagues and find new projects, which is another 5-15% of your weekly working hours.

    All in all, you invest a lot of your time into making people happy, being likable, and striving for promotion, and very little time really reflecting on if the work you do is good, or if you like the person/teammate you've become, your team, your client, your career...

    People stay because they like to think that Deloitte is the 'best' at anything it does. They want to lead; both as a firm in the industry, and as career professionals managing projects. A company of this size will be a leader based on magnitude of work, but I don't think our approach is truly innovative, if anything, we reenforce the status quo. Also, if your goal is to get promoted, but you never liked your job to begin with, you probably won't like it better with a higher sense of competition and longer hours.

    Advice to Management

    Tailor your talent system to encourage creativity in client services, rather than peer competition or inauthentic personalities.
    Reduce utilization expectations, encourage people to take their PTO, and implement more oversight over hours invested into firm initiatives. No one should spend 10+ hours a week on firm initiatives or networking, it is a distraction from well being and client service.

    Reduce client service hours, and we'll do better work, be more involved with the firm community, and stay in the company for longer!
