    Good place to start a career

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsDeloitte is a good place to start your career at. You are likely to be exposed to interesting projects for a wide array of clients. Managers give a lot of responsibility to junior staff so you learn quickly. In terms of career, progression you usually move up a rank each year and there is an associated pay rise (although its magnitude depends on what department you're working for). Colleagues and management are usually quite friendly. The culture is quite open-minded.

    ConsThe hours can be quite long although sometimes you are not staffed so it may compensate. There aren't many benefits apart from salaries so the overall package may not be as favorable as if you were working for a large corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone in particular.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to start a career!

    Audit Manager (Former Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsYou will:
    - learn how to work efficiently, how to adapt rapidly to new environments, improve your management skills (after 2 years you will start to micro-manage small teams), build-up your project-management & technical skills.
    - be able to put a great name on your resume (no doubt your resume will get a lot of attention from recruiters but you need to make it at least to the Senior level)
    - enjoy being around people of your age & with the same type of educational background (great after-work gatherings!)
    - rapidly have to face client's top-management

    ConsYou will:
    - perform a lot of redundant tasks all along your career (highly structured bureaucracy)
    - work very long hours
    - sometimes feel like you are being treated like cattle (by management) or like an imbecile (by client)
    - not enjoy any profit-sharing

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation should be more performance-based.

    ProsMost of the people I met were great, smart, and took the time to train me even if it didn't count in their hours.

    ConsIf you've finished your work and you leave before the rest of the team leaves, some managers will definitely show their unhappiness

    Slow progression

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on quality of work than on quantity of hours

    +3 years experience in financial analysis at Deloitte Finance, France

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Paris (France)

    Pros- Volume of the dealflow
    - Rapid exposure (towards clients and Deloitte's c-level executives like partners, directors...)
    - High level of responsibilities after 2/3 years
    - International presence, which facilitates cross-border projects
    - Advantages of a big Corporation in terms of salary progression, paid holidays, miscellaneous advantages

    Cons- Lack of Management

    Good place to learn the job for a few years

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsChallenging environment, some good projects to work on, good level of autonomy and responsibilities if you work for it, possibility to work on internal business offers and client proposals

    ConsDeloitte is and audit firm that does a bit of consulting but is far from the best at it. Too expensive and not as good as other big players such as Accenture. Difficult to work with Deloitte's other service lines and foreign practices due to the "private partnership" mindset.
