    Good spring board for your career

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Leeds, England (UK)

    ProsLots 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.

    ConsPoor work life balance
    Lots of internal politics / competitiveness

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to feedback from junior staff more, they will be more honest than senior staff members

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company for people who can sell themselves

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Hyde, England (UK)

    ProsToo much babu giri on the floor

    ConsLack of technical inclination on the floor

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnd 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It brought much knowledge and experience for me, developing my skills.

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

    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 Senior ManagementThe 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

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

    ProsMy 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.

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementPeople 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.

    good but frustrating

    Database Administrator (Current Employee)
    Manchester, England (UK)

    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 Senior Managementthe 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.

    looks good on resume, but may lead to frustration

    Tax Associate, GES (Former Employee)
    Manchester, England (UK)

    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 Senior ManagementLearn to listen to people or you will lose them to other firms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

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

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

    ConsOvertime 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 Senior ManagementRespect 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!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
