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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for professional growth and development. There are a lot of very bright and social junior practitioners, which makes work more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Solutions aren’t particularly innovative and leadership can sometimes plays a large role in inhibiting practitioners from achieving their potential. Junior practitioners can sometimes get stuck on painfully boring projects for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Let practitioners rotate projects more frequently in federal

    Pros

    Amazing support and resources. Management will typically fight in your corner

    Cons

    They give you a lot of PTO that you are not allowed or expected to take. And if you take it, it could have negative impacts to your performance reviews

    Pros

    Opportunity to own career, grow, network, learn, and work with interesting clients.

    Cons

    I felt like an unreasonable level of loyalty was demanded of me on a specific project I was working on. If I was going to switch projects then I would have had to burn a bridge. Switching projects should be normal.

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

    Pros

    I was hesitant to join Deloitte as an experienced hire, and as a single parent with children, having read reviews from where long hours, and travel were frequent. The opportunity to work in the federal work space and an interesting project convinced me to join, and of course, the Deloitte brand. Federal consulting does not require as much travel, and I am fortunate to be in projects that are local. You have the opportunity to work with amazing federal agencies and smart and wonderful colleagues in Deloitte. There are managers or colleagues that are sub-par, micro managers or terrible to work with, but that is par for the course in a large management consulting firm. But if you're in a good project, stick with it. What I enjoy most is the opportunity to do other things than your day-to-day project work - volunteer, train, mentor, make an impact which all contribute to one's career success at the firm. I have been here 3 years now, and I honestly did not expect to stay or want to stay, but so far, my tenure has kept me engaged and allowed me to expand my skills in my own terms. The company walks the walk and talks the talk on diversity and gender equality, the company culture in that is admirable.

    Cons

    I experienced an unfortunate incident during a training that caused me to complain to upper management, but without success. As all large management consulting firms, there will be jerks and people who is the epitome of the "stab your back" consultant, I have met them and maneuvered myself out of projects that let me work with them. Sadly, I am not naive to think they will be "found out" or forced out as these kinds of people usually are ruthless enough to generate revenue for the company, and at the end of the day, the company values people who brings in revenue (what company doesn't?). It is 1 step better from some companies in that no racial/gender harassment is tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Do not punish employees for low utilization if caused by contracts suddenly ending without prior notice.

    Pros

    A place that fosters employees relationships and equips you with skills to succeed in the workplace, competitive salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    Performance is rarely rewarded, everyone is doing great so the overall rating averages are high, so only favored employees get to the next level of pay or promotions. Relationships matter more than performance.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the permanence rating process. It’s purely driven by team leads opinions, which is subjective and purely depends on the nature of the lead and if they’re rating employees honestly. Example: most employees do well, so they get a 5 star rating even when they don’t do a 5 star performance from their leads, with the exception of a few honest reviewers who might give a less that 5 star rating one time, resulting on a drop in employees overall rating so they stand out against all the others who are getting 5/5 every time, resulting in not being rewarded.

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

    Pros

    good work-life balance, consistent work. There used to be a big push to do a LOT of internal work, but that has scaled back over the years

    Cons

    Federal work is mostly long-term contracts, the ability to learn new skills is lower than the commercial side
