    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A good place for folks in earlier-stage of their careers

    Cons

    1. Reward "firm activities" to a laughable extend. We are in the business of serving clients; thus, how well consultants meet or exceed clients' needs should carry the most weight in performance evaluation rather than how many hours she/he spends on organizing "events" 2. Staffing is overly personal-network-driven.

    Advice to Management

    1. Align performance metrics with the essence of the consulting business. Otherwise, you will get what you want, i.e., a group of talented event organizers 2. Re-visit the staffing model to best utilize resources

      Pros

      It's small so you learn alot of new technologies as well as non-technical sales

      Cons

      Not for you if you want to be in tech only, very cross functional

      I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      These folks know exactly what they are doing. They set high standards, and consistently deliver. Their project expectations and planning is excellent. The top level management folks are extremely smart and have a great sense of vision and planning. If you go to company social events (which are very frequent by the way), it is quite easy to have conversations with upper management people (Partners). Deloitte's hiring...

      Cons

      Work-life balance can become poor, especially during tight project timelines (This is expected in the Consulting Business). The employees have a significant amount of "firm-internal" training and knowledge contribution tasks. There are annual goal expectations. It can get tedious if you continuously work on high demand projects. There is intense competition, especially during targeted promotion/milestone years. There...

      Advice to Management

      I have high regards for the Senior Management in this company. I think they are the market leaders in the industry, especially with their consistent high standards. Personally, I think they should strongly encourage some "end-to-end" hands-on responsibility in the IT consulting division. There are very few hands-on guys. I have seen a lot of segregation of duties between people that causes endless heartburn during...
