    Pros

    Some talented individuals, a great place to learn soft skills and how to communicate with clients and maintain relationships. This where this company really shines. They strive to make sure their clients are happy and will do anything to maintain their client relationships. The pay is very good and is how they attract so much of their talent.

    Cons

    This company does what it does through sheer willpower and force instead of doing things the smart way. This is simply because thats the way things have been done, and will continue to be done. Because this firm is private and partner-run, there is very little room for new ideas and things don't seem to evolve in this company.

    Staffing is a real PITA. Unless you have a well established network within the company expect to stay on the bench for 4+ weeks waiting for some project in dire need of bodies to staff you. Then expect long hours of tediousness and cleaning up a mismanaged project.

    After being at Deloitte for 2 years, I haven't met a single person that is happy with their work/life balance or has any semblance of a personal life. Everyone here is one-dimensional and knows nothing other than Deloitte. The company will ask you to work 80-100 hours a week, and then expects you to commit to firm activities (expect 200+ hrs a year for a half decent rating). I use to work at accenture, and people there had their own interests and hobbies. Here nobody does. The people that are managers and above will do anything to get their ratings and hit their goals, and are willing to over promise to clients to make that happen.

    Do yourself a favor and don't make the mistake of getting hired at Deloitte, unless money is your only objective. It will take away your personal life and your professional skills (since you'll never be able to use them) and leave you a career consultant.

    Advice to Management

    For your technology folks, have them do more technology work. It will make them better consultants and will make your projects go smoother. Not everything can be managed with the only 2 levers you know (hours and people). If you have people that know the technologies, things will go better. Let your consultant do what they do best - help the clients and have dedicated teams for PRD's. You are overworking your staff which causes them all to be demoralized.

    There's a way out of this, you just need to tai eaction

    Pros

    There are lots of learning opportunities. It really depends how one spends his/her time in developing the career.

    Sometimes you feel like the organization you belong to is too large. Makes you feel really small...
