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

Pros

Training, help attaining certifications, compensation, medical benefits, smart employees, global project opportunities, profitable company

Cons

Utilization metrics reign supreme here. Even though you get "vacation" time, you pretty much have to make up most time off in order to hit required utilization targets. If you do not hit them, you do not get promoted, bonuses, pay raises, etc. In fact, you will be put on a Performance Improvement Plan even though your actual job performance may have been excellent. Also, you must do a lot of extra internal Deloitte work in addition to your project work. Just keep in mind you will average about 50-60 hours per week when negotiating your salary.

Advice to Management

Adjusted utilization should occur when you have a client who will not allow you to work from home or be there when they are not there. The client works exactly 40 hours per week, so if you take vacation, have medical appointments, etc., you will not be able to make up those hours. Deloitte employees should not be "penalized" for circumstances outside of their control. Weather events, client time off, and other "rules" preventing 40 hours of billable client time should be adjusted.
