I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Deloitte provides unique opportunities to work as part of a truely innovative consulting firm that is first to market with many of the solutions it offers to clients. Deloitte provides practitioners of all levels opportunities to drive their career and ontribute as a leader in a multitude of capacities in either internal or external projects. Deloitte's focus on professional development provides great opportunities to make yourself more marketable either within the consulting sector or within many industries, on their dime.

Cons

Deloitte's work life "balance" is a joke. It is almost impossible to meet your required utilization rate (accounting for holidays & PTO) without consistently working 50 hours a week at the client site, and then contributing to a multitude of "firm contributions" and business development on top of that. Deloitte's heavily bureuacratic nature turns you into just another number come review time, so don't rely on the ability of any local leadership to support you when it comes to that promotion, bonus, or raise that you have been working for. Although the salary and bonus look pretty sweet on the surface, once you realize all of the additional work that is involved outside of your normal client delivery, you'd be better off with a smaller consulting firm, unless you are just starting out your career.

Advice to Management

With the state of the current job market, it is not longer reasonable for Deloitte's retainment model to be "you should feel priviledged to work at Deloitte". Work on your work life "fit" (there is no way there will ever be a balance at Deloitte), examine your extensive and bureaucratic annual review process, and look to exceed your competitors (instead of just trying to keep pace with them) when it comes to compensation, if you can't fix anything else.

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

    Pros

    Very well organized, very intelligent coworkers, numerous training opportunities. Fair compensation.
    Associate track option for people who want a good work/life balance and to be judged strictly on client contributions.
    Strong business model. Deloitte invests a lot in attracting talented people and makes an effort to retain them. If your project ends and you are a solid contributor, the firm will find a way to keep you on staff.

    Cons

    Some bureaucracy (for example, if you are on a long-term engagement, it's silly to have to report on your assignment availability every single week).
    Not enough firm events based out of the McLean office, which limits participation.

    Advice to Management

    Change the compensation model back to the way it was- salary increases are more rewarding and fulfilling than bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Very Global. I ended up working in multiple European countries in 5 years for projects.
    Very structured.
    Market leader and continuous to grow.
    Great People and culture.

    Cons

    How they deal immigration is not world class and doesn't fit Deloitte. They are very good with H1B visas but in terms of greencard applications, they have strict rules and they only sponsor you for EB3 greencard unless you are a Sr. Manager or up! Not ideal place to work for immigrants with Master degrees if they want to get a fast greencard.

    Pay is not fair for the most part if you start right after college. People who joins from industry makes a lot more than you regardless of your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more fairly based on performance not based on previous base salary.
    Get rid of the immigration disadvantage you built to yourself due to poor immigration policy.
    Continue doing a good job leading the market.
