I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Increasing brand, good people, pretty good benefits. Some of the work done in the Health Care and Life Sciences groups is very cool. Very little other true strategic work outside of this.

Cons

Compensation is lower than at other major consulting firms. Too little focus is put on project performance, and too much of your rating and compensation is based on non-client work.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Numerous trianing opportunities, maternity leave (8 weeks +) paternity leave (3 weeks), very competitive pay structure, volunteering and networking are highly encouraged, young work force, numerous office locations, remoting/working from home on some days is acceptable based on your clients.

    Cons

    work life balance is preached but not always possible. You have to be disciplined to turn off from work otherwise it will take over your life. Senior Consultant and below: Utilization/Billing hours is your top priority

    Advice to Management

    More firm activities should be counted toward utilization since there is such an emphasis on them.
