    Pros

    inexperienced team members get exposed to many parts of project management
    work with generally smart people

    Cons

    at executive level, managing extra curriculars is like having a demanding part time job
    going from one project to another is completely based on relationships

    Pros

    Incredible people that are passionate about Deloitte and growing their network within the company. Deloitte provides a vast amount of resources to their employees and invest heavily in them.

    Hard to switch between the federal and commercial practice. Federal practice moves slowly. Deloitte only invests in the PPD track of its consulting practice.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    5 weeks PTO, 16 weeks family leave; opportunities for broad exposure; generally intelligent, considerate, and committed peers.

    Cons

    - Very much a "look at me" culture.
    - If you don't kiss up (*ahem* - "network/show your brand"), then no one at Senior Manager or Principal/Managing Director cares about you except as you affect their bottom line.
    - The combination of the two above results in some relatively incompetent self-promoters who promote quickly.
    - The firm considers "leadership" to be a combination of bringing in more money/managing more revenue with going through the motions of expected management practices.
    - Disingenuous salesman-y managers, senior managers, and principals/directors generally means unpleasant work for the people who actually have to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Create more robust mechanisms for upward feedback.
