Don’t take PDM. Treated like second class citizens. Push for traditional track

G1 has a point. It’s a completely different talent model. You’d be best of with Core or Specialist models, followed by USDC.

Recruiters say anything to get you in the door, don’t forget that I concur that I would avoid PDM as it really doesn’t have a bench time like true consulting (even Booz has a bench). Either go for core or take PDM and don’t expect to transfer to core, most want to, but obviously can’t

Ex BAH here. Start applying to the other firms. You’ll see a huge salary jump. Don’t waste your time with this Deloitte role

Typical PDM/staff aug model at D..my friend just joined but he got a very good hike that would negate the risk of project ending early,understand it’s not the traditional consulting model and you can’t move across clients..once the contract ends you are fired..26k is less ,push for more and also ask for joining bonus

There could be potential opportunity to join the client based on your performance..if you are used to this type of work it’s kinda ok but make sure you are paid really well..

What's the difference between PDM and GPS?

Ahhhhh got it, thanks!

GPS is government and public sector and pdm is project delivery model where you are aligned to a specific proj and when that ends you are out

You could be pdm in commercial or GPS

This would be GPS and I believe the contract is already fully funded. But even at my time at BAH, a contract can be pulled at any time. My recruiter told me this would be a good way into the company and network into a more traditional role

Don’t fall for that trick,moving to traditional model from PDM is hard..get the $$$$

While I was at Deloitte PDM was called the Associate track. During my tenure in GPS, it was pretty easy to switch from the traditional track to the associate track, but very hard to make the reverse switch. I knew of two people who went associate > traditional over the course of 3 years.

So there is another reason I want to leave BAH. I was put on a PIP a couple months ago and I’ve heard it’s extremely hard to get off the PIP. I’ve tried working with my manager, who is unwilling to help. Thankfully, I got onto a new project and that new project lead is more willing to help, but I still report to my original manager who is out to get me. I’ve gotten advice before and all the advice, minus one, have told me to leave the first chance I get.
