    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary
    Good bonus
    23 days PTO to start
    Some interesting projects
    Some very talented people

    Cons

    80-100% travel
    Poor work-life balance
    Heavy off-shore model
    Lots of staff-aug type engagements
    Low caliber talent hired whenever there is an open role

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte has a lot of great ideas, methods, morals, etc., however many of these things are not followed on the projects. Often the focus is purely on what is contractually required in the SOW, as opposed to what is best for the client. Unrealistic project timelines are consistently adopted and always end in horrible resources crunches, long weekends and late nights. Upper level management and partners need to start learning from their mistakes and manage projects more realistically, even if it means not winning the work. Don't underbid every project, and then kill your people to get it done.
