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

    Pros

    From all the companies I have worked with Deloitte has the most focus on their people and developing their people into future leaders within the company.

    Cons

    Deloitte does have some heavy requirements on its employees to give back to the company in the area of business development and firm initiatives. This combined with a long commute in DC was not a good thing for me. However, Deloitte has realized a need for client focused work were you your entire time is dedicated at the client, the downside is that pay raises and promotions are not as frequent.

    Advice to Management

    We are expected to meet with our mentors within the company every two weeks to discuss issues and concerns from the employee side and the mentors can provide feedback back to us from talking with management. This allows for issues with behavior to be corrected immediately instead of someone being shocked at end of year. I like this approach and it should be kept up.

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

    Pros

    Deloitte has a great team environment, especially in the federal practice in Washington DC. I enjoy going to work in order to solve new challenges. The pay is lower but you get a friendly team environment, nice office space in a convenient location by the Rosslyn metro, lots of training opportunities, and the ability to move between projects so you can broaden your experience. In my 6 years at Deloitte, I've worked at Dept of Justice, Dept of State, and Dept of Defense. My average week is about 40 to 45 hours a week with only two or three times per year that I work a 12 hour day.

    Cons

    There is a significant pay difference between Deloitte Advisory employees and Deloitte Consulting employees at the same level doing the same job, at least on federal projects. The two work side-by-side on projects, almost interchangeably, and often have similar skillsets. As of mid-2018, a senior consultant in Advisory made 80k to 85k per year, while a senior consultant in Consulting made 95k to 100k per year. My recommendation is to apply for a Consulting position rather than an Advisory position, because of the better pay. Aside from the resume and pay, no one in Deloitte or on the client site will know whether you're in Advisory or Consulting.

    Pros

    Excellent training, development opportunities, fantastic coworkers, and incredible workplace resources

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a challenge

    Advice to Management

    While improving, it is not enough to say you have a culture of work-life balance, you must live into it and set the example for your colleagues.

    Pros

    Colleagues are really smart and down to earth. Pretty easy to get along with. A very diverse office. Entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged

    Cons

    Politics can often get in the way. Promotion is more about who you know than your skill set or numbers

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be more merit based

    Pros

    Great people, good projects, solid experience.

    Cons

    This is not a job, it's a lifestyle. In order to succeed in this firm, you need to be prepared to go above and beyond billable hours and start thinking about contributing to proposals, getting active within one of the dozens of employee groups, and networking at every conceivable social outing. It can be fun at times, and quite taxing at others.
