    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's difficult to find a consulting agency where the focus is on the quality of the deliverable and not doing things at the absolutely lowest cost. The rest of Deloitte does their best to leverage the strengths of the design driven methodology. Most teams are set up to work collaboratively, in the same space, and most clients are open to feedback about what is being built.

    Cons

    Deloitte isn't a hierarchal organization, so getting permission to do something is nearly impossible. You can use this as motivation to solve problems yourself, but there's rarely a "correct" way to do something. And, additional interaction with offshore resources threatens to cause more off-hours time commitments, something most employees didn't originally sign up for. Also, it's not clear what the long-term compensation...

    Advice to Management

    New projects are slow to materialize, so a greater focus on selling will energize current employees and protect the future.

    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...
