    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Work/life balance - remote opportunities, tools needed to be successful working anywhere geographically
    2. Office spaces and locations in the DMV is amazing
    3. Top notch people to collaborate with
    4. Extensive learning opportunities
    5. Training and mentoring

    Cons

    1. Comp / raises are low. However, Deloitte makes up for it with the total comp package and environment. People (like me) stay not because the raises are good but because overall it's an amazing place to work.
    2. Client challenges - the work can be demanding and draining. After 6+ years here, I needed a change because I was so exhausted.

    fast paced environment
    performance reviews

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits
    Training
    Stability
    Since of family

    Cons

    Utilization, can't take as much PTO
    Rating tied to utilization

    Advice to Management

    You need to change things on the federal level, contractors are afraid to take any time off because many contracts do not allow more than 40hrs, people feel chained up by utilization. No work-life balance, we heard about it, but you were not looked as a valued employee if you didn't attend deloitte networking events after a full day of client work.

    Pros

    Invest in growth and education, leadership opportunities

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

    Pros

    Smart, engaging employees while completing challenging, innovative work. Freedom to build your own brand, network onto interesting projects, and gain experiences across industries and technologies.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be difficult, constant travel, and instability in finding projects. Lack of underrepresented minorities in leadership and in general.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate a more inclusive environment for underrepresented minorities, push for more work-life balance with rotations from travel to local projects, and ensure that employees get on projects that align with their skills and development plan.

    Pros

    Great benefits. 5 weeks PTO + holidays. Fitness stipend. Great culture and people. Very good learning/development programs for employees.

    Cons

    Work can be boring depending on client and 401k match isn't very good (this is true of any consulting firm). Performance management process could be better.

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

    Pros

    -Plenty of young motivated people who start here directly after college
    -Most of the senior leadership is invested in their younger practitioners

    Cons

    -Stress of outside client work (initiatives) is a bit much especially with how much work some projects are
    -Less freedom to jump around between projects when in the federal space. Often times BTAs/Consultants are staffed on long contracts and it becomes hard for them to navigate off of the project. Senior Leadership is hit or miss on either helping them get off or trying to get them to stay or move them to another team on the same contract.
    -Lately, pay compared to the other Big 4 has been slacking

    Advice to Management

    Stay invested in the young practitioners
