    Pros

    It is a good company to work at as your first company. There are good people and good culture. A lot of free breakfasts. Good progression.

    Cons

    Pay is competitive...aka as little as they can but you'll still work for them. High turnover. Similar experience to industry roles but less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us more or we'll be poached by client companies or we will move to industry doing the same role at way higher pay.

    Pros

    Fantastic exposure to wide variety of clients industries and projects. Diversity in workplace and surrounded by intelligent worldly professional talent

    Cons

    Renumeration is terrible despite huge growth and number of partners promoted. Average pay increase is in line with inflation (2-3%). If promoted it's around 6%. Recognition is terrible despite all the celebrations on how the company is doing well.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big clients, big projects, good job experience. Gain good industry experience and networking

    Cons

    Promotion can be too slow. Multiple projects at the same time. Can be pretty stressful if you ask for a promotion

    Advice to Management

    If you want the promotion don't say it, just behave as someone that performs at the next level

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern

    Pros

    The culture stood out for me, and they really did practice what they preached, which is quite refreshing in such a large firm. The collegiality and sense of transparency was also encouraging - there was a sense of value in the work you did, even as an intern.

    Cons

    The hours - as an intern I wasn't required to stay back, but through second-hand experience the graduates were put through their paces a fair bit.

    Advice to Management

    I can't make a comment on this as I wasn't there long enough to warrant giving advice on any improvement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Some good clients and diversity of clients

    Cons

    Couldn't care less about employees' family commitments like a new baby eg moves employees interstate for client work despite having a new baby and no support interstate. Partners can be rude to staff, to the point of completely ignoring requests for workplace transfers etc ie entirely ignoring emails, phone calls. Staff are not paid well and pressured to work long hours. Very unsuuportive culture if you have a family as there is no work/life balance. Difficult to get a promotion depending on which team you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Partners need to value their employees, be considerate of staff, remunerate staff well, reward staff.
