Pros

Deloitte was full of talented individuals, with diverse work to engage in, a big pipeline of projects, established methodologies that we readily able to be applied.

Cons

This wasn't exactly what i signed up for. As a consultant, you are assigned to projects based on business needs, not on your skills and abilities. There is a lack of focus on assigning the right talent to the right projects, and the individuals suffer as a a result. Deloitte regularly indoctrinates that they only hire the best and brightest, so that leaves little comfort level for individuals to address their dissatisfaction with the "system." People basically then "take it on the chin" until they are simply ready to walk out the door. Lacking in strategic work and skills, even though they advertise that they are one of the biggest in the market for such expertise.

Advice to Management

Get more involved in what the day-to-day of consulting is for your teams. Pitch and price the engagements properly so they are adequately staffed. Don't let your underbidding of the projects come out of the backs of your hard-working employees, take it off your profitability lines. Attrition will be hitting hard, and sooner than you know, if you don't start taking care of your people. Your best and brightest WILL leave if they continue to burn at the rates they are.

    Pros

    Great benefits package
    Diversity of experiences for junior practitioners to be exposed to a variety of different 'consulting' projects
    Consultants not contractors (compared to BAH etc)

    Cons

    Compensation compared to other competitive firms
    Emphasis on 'extracurriculars' - volunteering/leading made up groups within the firm to give people an opportunity to lead
    Work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to engage junior practitioners. In between starting your career and cementing your career most employees want to be challenged and there aren't many opportunities at that level.


  2. "GOOD"

    Pros

    Good salary, lots of travel, you get to see alot of different company cultures and alot of the world that you not see before

    Cons

    Alot of non work related extra activities required. They start to get old an on your nerves after working there for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone wants to become a manager, they need to develop a work enviroment where people want to stay longer than a few years and not just burn you into the ground and then do it to the next person in line.
