I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great interfacing opportunities in Deloitte S&O
Can do well if you are great w big politics
Lots of SPG points :)
Insight into the operations of some of Americas/the worlds biggest companies -- helps to understand future idea of success

Cons

Can be very long hours -- Mondays are rough leaving for the airport at 4am, getting to the client on the East coast at 9EST and working until 10pm...
Sometimes your work is done for the sake of the contract...and isn't that meaningful
Beware of major implementations... Personally haven't found myself in this situation but Deloitte is known for body shopping people for 2+ years on boring implementations (especially S&O healthcare work).

Advice to Management

Appreciate staffs typical very high effort and dedication... It is disappointing to continuously hear good performance is impossible to attain... This is not sustainable motivation even for the most motivated of individuals

    "Elite consulting firm with ponderous culture"

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

    Pros

    Firm resources are fantastic for conducting one's work and developing yourself (e.g. Deloitte University, which is great)
    Personnel at all levels are smart and motivated - best collective group I've ever worked with
    Firm contributions - when led by a strong PPD - are great for professional enhancement
    Even 'met expectations' ratings at year end can get generous AIP

    Cons

    Client service is secondary to demonstrating your knack for operating in the culture, such as performing firm contributions (aka voluntary 9th/10th hour assignments)
    Matrixed collaboration-based model promotes non responsiveness/lack of accountability almost at an epidemic level
    Performance evaluation process is broken. Although based on due diligence, rating process is subjective and brand/eminence criteria has morphed into a measure of popularity more than impact
    Since so much face time is needed to succeed (in this case, Rosslyn VA HQ), Deloitte doesn't embrace folks who sit at client sites
    Since nothing is written down (org charts, policies for example), no one understands how to succeed in the culture except by word of mouth or after you've stumbled

    Advice to Management

    Address performance evaluation process and document what the tactics of success are (such as a performance accountability matrix or promotion criteria specific to a title)
    Embrace the diversity of work performed across all Segments; right now if your job has RPH less than $130, it and the people working it are labeled as staff aug almost like an epithet
