    Good prospects but not without its negatives

    Audit (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsClear career progression path
    ACA
    Big four on CV is valuable
    Experience on a range of clients

    ConsWork /life balance is poor
    Hours beyond the core busy season are not 9-5 (you will get sent to different offices and departments to ensure that they get their moneys worth out of you)
    Bonus structure gets worse every year
    Career progression after training programme completed can be more political - increased onus on "contribution to department" rather than the quality of work - pays to be known

    Advice to Senior Managementreward the good workers and recognise efforts not just people who are well known and more social/ organise group events

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Varies

    Manager (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat people, very high performance environment, high profile clients

    ConsPay doesn't compensate for long hours or travel, no ownership of outputs, very varied work (I.e great or really boring).

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the talent you have and give that talent a voice, otherwise you'll end up with machines.

    interesting - you never know what's going to happen when you turn up at work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat people, benefits, working conditions, experience gained, training given

    Conssalary, work life balance, definite divide between admin staff and accountants. no career opportunities if you're not a qualified accountant.

    Advice to Senior Managementtreat all staff the same regardless of grade.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed messages

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)
    Bath, England (UK)

    ProsPeers work well together; politics is more between partners and staff rather then with staff,

    ConsPay is well below par, manager at another big 4 might earn what a senior manager receives at Deloitte. A real focus on partner profit share to attract the stars can miss the bigger picture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMatch the messages to staff with actions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Satisfactory, good pay, good brand

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood brand, work culture is very professional, lot of smart people around to work with, international exposure is very normal

    ConsPeople don't believe in working from home, travelling is bit too much sometimes long flights and long stay out of family, top heavy - carer growth opportunity is less

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    My experience has been average at Deloitte

    Audit Senior Associate (Second Year) (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsShare space with Experience people

    ConsDeloitte talks about growth in the company however people are sometimes overlooked at the time of promotion which pushes their morale to a low in spite of all the hard work put in the run up to the Promotion period.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink objectively and the efforts each person has put in contributing to the firm at the time of promotion in order to reduce the attrition rate.

    Very long hours with big clients

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- Good range of exciting recognisable clients
    - Senior management approachable and remember a good job.
    - Good values and brand - ethical stance with clients and work feels just right
    - Potential for travel anywhere in the world IF you meet the right people at the right time
    - Flexible - allowed to work from pretty much anywhere when not working with a client

    Cons- Long, long hours of slideshow creation in offices, hotel rooms, trains or at home
    - Extra internal work is tedious (but absolutely required for promotion)
    - High competition for project roles internally can lead to a very competitive, hostile workplace.
    - Salary average
    - Difficult to shift between business units if you feel you are in the wrong area
    - Expected to log on at evenings/weekends if on a project - work life balance a major issue

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess focus on utilisation and more on actually resourcing effectively and not based on just 'who you know'.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
