"Outrageous utilization target"

StarStarStarStarStar
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Brand, Culture, People are nice, Big firm

Cons

Too much eminence building requirement i.e. white paper/proposal writing outside of normal 40 hours week
Training requirement is hard 40 hrs requirement normal 40 hours work week
Utilization target should be 80% not 90% that's crazy, which means you can't take advertised vacation without being penalized. So you have to make up the time of your vacation

Advice to Management

Reduce Utilization target to atleast 80% to retain top talent in high demand
Eminence does not add satisfaction for employee retention, so abolish it

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, open door policies, largely friendly work environment

    Cons

    A great deal of "highly encouraged" work opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Must become more in tune with what entry and mid-level Analysts/Consultants/Managers need to keep them interested and loyal to the firm. If you continue to work within the bounds of a large body shop younger level associates will continue to leave in droves and you will be unable to build a base of strong future thought leaders.
