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.

    Pros

    - great training program
     - good benefits and a lot of PTO
     - good place to get a strong technical background

    Cons

    - work gets very boring
    - promoted and get raises/bonuses on a very rigid schedule, regardless of whether you're a top performer or bottom of the barrel

    Advice to Management

    Make bonuses a larger percentage of staff compensation. Associates work the most but don't see added benefits of putting long hours and working hard.
