    Current Employee - Manager  in  Paris (France)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Deloitte 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    None in particular.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    the best thing about Deloitte is the people, the potential for endless challenges and the potential for flexibility when and where you need it.

    Cons

    the problem with Deloitte is that it spends more time worrying about money and parts of the Deloitte leadership forget that the way to make money is through their people. There are some pockets of Deloitte that lie and manipulate and intimidate their staff only to winder why people are not engaged!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just talk about creating a diverse workplace - actually get serious about it! You should be asking more critical questions about why the diversity programs that have existed for 10+ years have not significantly shifted the culture given the millions of dollars and numerous resources that have been committed. There are a number of excellent examples within Deloitte on how to actually successfully and significantly impact the culture in a positive way so have a look at those if you are really serious about real sustainable growth!

    Former Employee - Audit Manager  in  Paris (France)
    Former Employee - Audit Manager in Paris (France)

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You 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

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should be more performance-based.

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    If you've finished your work and you leave before the rest of the team leaves, some managers will definitely show their unhappiness
    Worst compensation for permanent employees compared to other Big 3.
    Slow progression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on quality of work than on quantity of hours

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging 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

    Cons

    Deloitte 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.
