    Pros

    Big name to put on your CV - if you're fresh out of uni and see an advert for easy money, simple contract work with Deloitte, it's totally worth it! Also got good experience working with Excel in a pretty complex way, which I wouldn't have otherwise learnt in my preferred industry, but has proven to be helpful. Managers vary enormously - some incredibly good, some fairly ignorant. Some of the other graduates were surprised with offers of permanent roles at the end of the 6 month contact - we had all been told at the beginning that it would only be the 6 months so was a pleasant surprise for those who had worked hard and were rewarded. Although this was also where the favouritism of the managers was exposed, as some people whose work was of a poor standard were kept on over other, much better contractors, and it was usually because they got on well with the managers!

    Cons

    As above, managers vary, some are amazing, some are bad. Was part of a team of 20 or so graduates doing what the senior managers considered to be menial work, and we overheard them referring to us as 'resources' several times - pretty weird to be that detached from other humans! Pay was pretty poor, even for a first graduate role.

    Be more concern with the people that give everything to the company.
