Pros

Promotions are generally fair- just make sure you bill enough hours and you'll be fine.
Work is relevant, significant, and lots of opportunity for growth.

Cons

Base salary is not competitive for those with serious technical/programming skills.
Hours can be good one week and horrendous the next with 0 ability to predict either even on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

Create a real option to have work life balance in exchange for lowered pay increases. This will boost retention. In the future, you will need to pay more to retain top programming talent.

    Pros

    *Pay and benefits
    *Great if you want to work 60+ hours a week and climb the corporate ladder

    Cons

    *Employees are expected to do their work for their client and then do extra work for Deloitte (150-200 hours of corporate contributions per year). In consulting of course we expect to help with an occasional proposal, but the constant drive to contribute more is draining.
    *If you have a family, a life, or just working for a paycheck, these requirements are hard to meet
    *Told by manager "work-life balance here is BS."

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your federal workforce, utilization and contribution goals do not fit with the types of contracts that we do in the federal area.

    Deloitte's aggressiveness in business is a turn off to many government clients.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Many opportunities across many sectors and industries. There is almost always a place to find the work that you are interested in.

    Cons

    There are often long hours and sometimes it feels that the pay is not in line with those extended work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there was more transparency across how raises, bonuses, and other compensation are determined. Generally however, management does an excellent job of handling HR issues.
