    I have been working at Deloitte as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Promotions are quick and fast. The company has great values. You will be treated like a person and have many different socials etc to get to know the people in your year groups.

    Cons

    You will work a lot more hours than you will be paid for. Benefits are ok but not all that great in the scheme of things looking at other companies.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to high profile clients and wide range of experience gained
    Career opportunities, promotion is based on individual performance not only when a vacancy arises.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance
    Lots of internal politics / competitiveness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to feedback from junior staff more, they will be more honest than senior staff members

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

    Pros

    Too much babu giri on the floor

    Cons

    Lack of technical inclination on the floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End of the day Deloitte consulting implements IT projects apart from other minor assignments. The floor should be ideally having 80% technical and 20% resources with good communication. I think this is the opposite in Deloitte. To deliver quality one needs to bank on technical skills for this kind of business.

    Former Employee - Audit Assistant in Manchester, England (UK)

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    -team-work approach
    - excellent training
    - work with global clients
    - it is a multinational company that values the entrepreneurial spirit and appreciates the talents of its employees

    Cons

    -overload of work
    -sometimes tough deadlines, and stressful situations.
    - Deloitte can move you to some international project, and it might be difficult for some people to balance their family and work life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management of the company can still fight against the new green paper, as it will change the whole structure of audit, and accounting industry. Overall, I am satisfied with the management of Deloitte and its business approach.

    An environment to excel in... But hard

    Current Employee - Manager, Information and Technology Risk  in  Leeds, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Manager, Information and Technology Risk in Leeds, England (UK)

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    My team is genuinely helpful, friendly, welcoming and most of all passionate about their work. This makes for a mostly outstanding place to work in. All are genuinely talented - there are very few people who do not contribute as much as they could or should.

    Work is generally interesting and compelling

    The pressure to perform is actually positive - people want you to succeed, and push you to succeed and reach your potential - because they genuinely want you to excel, not just for their own gain.

    Working with people who are committed to your development is a great experience.

    Cons

    There can be long, punishing hours

    While most are the opposite, some senior people are not as committed to people development as they should be. This can create a negative atmosphere and does not allow people to reach their potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are the only asset that Deloitte has. There should be no feeble efforts on people development. The commitment should be intense and focus should be on developing our people and making sure they can reach their potential.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    - excellent pay
    - good HR staff
    - great on CV
    - good socials (especially the Christmas party)
    - some perks

    Cons

    - no work life balance
    - spiders in the reception area
    - very hierarchical work culture, trainees not allowed to talk to senior management without written permission from HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the snacks offered in the tea room could do with a serious revamp, mcvities have recently been replaced by fox mints under pressure from mckinsey, not a good move.

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    -Development of technical skills.
    -Option to buy extra holidays.
    -Recognizable brand name.

    Cons

    -Was promised a 'buddy' and lunchtime training when offered the position, however none of these things were ever provided.
    -Feedback is subjective and mostly related to character traits rather than technical skills.
    -No room for creativity.
    -Management and above did not ask for feedback, ignoring the opinions and needs of new hires.
    -Over worked - long hours are expected.
    -No exam support. Had exams and was told to do overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to people or you will lose them to other firms.

    Dont work here if you have any kind of social life....even a glimmer!

    Former Employee - Audit Associate  in  Manchester, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Audit Associate in Manchester, England (UK)

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Looks good on CV and salary is good compared with other accountancy programmes.
    Working out at clients (away from the office).

    Cons

    Overtime is expected as given, irrespective of commitments outside of work whether it be study, exams, or surprising to many senior staff....a social life.

    Alot of travel and away jobs, on average 10 days a month.

    Within the office environment people are rude and ignorant and many will not say 'hello' as you walk by. Many people do not possess social skills especially senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect lower grades of staff and appreciate hard work and good work. Dont take overtime as given without reimbursing their efforts.

    The cut throat exam policy means you are playing with people's careers. Give the support and mentoring that you market in your graduate brochure!
