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

Pros

Very knowledgeable coworkers and management, dominate the Federal industry, and provide a wide breadth of resources for solutions for clients.

Cons

Raises in Federal practice can be somewhat lacking (e.g. 9% raise for a top performer with promotion), the firm activities requirements for top ratings are a lot more stringent than other firms (250 hours is the minimum for exceeding expectations), and sometimes you do not have control over your career as management has complete control over when you can roll off an engagement.

Advice to Management

Reduce the firm activities requirements and put more emphasis on actual project work. Also, listen to staff when they wish to roll off and provide a timeline for that to happen.
