    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

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    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 worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people that I worked with and I truly believe that Deloitte is willing to invest in its people.

    Cons

    I was on the audit side, and when there are deadlines to meet, the hours can go up. I do think they are trying to create a better work life balance during those times, but it's a work in progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and remember that changes really start from the top down.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and bonus growth if you perform well

    One of the only firms around to offer up to 16 weeks paid paternity leave, if you can get approval for it (they're not required to approve)

    Cons

    The new RPM performance management system turned a well-documented year end process into an anonymous, undocumented, popularity contest. It's universally reviled within the firm by everyone who is not on the hook to provide reviews. The inside information is that it was created to save time and give more people lower ratings. Bottom line is that you now need to build friendships with your managers more than you need to focus on doing good work to get a good review.

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

    Pros

    Ability to work across markets (federal, commercial, public sector, global). The only limit is your network. Generous PTO. Mentor/sponsor-driven culture. You own your career and you can create your own brand.

    Cons

    Non-transparent rating and performance review process. Consensus is more of a popularity/burn book contest and lacks fairness. Not really clear on what it takes to get a 2 vs a 3.

    Advice to Management

    Increase transparency around consensus meetings by allowing people of all levels to invite a "huddle" to attend on their behalf- not just those up for SM. Utilize development plans and align them with level expectations. Be more clear with outside/industry hires about expectations at level. Diversify your hiring- having people of different professional and educational backgrounds (not just MBA campus hires) helps stimulate thought and makes us think outside the box. Ditch the PDM model on client-facing projects and hire those people through a third party. PDM people are treated like second class citizens and it causes tension with those of us on other tracks. We're also a consulting firm, not a staff aug firm so PDM isn't really what we do.

    Pros

    Great culture, team valued, progressive in thinking, thought leader

    Cons

    Some areas of management are very hierarchical and make career progression difficult - highly dependent on the manager you work for and their management style.

    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.
