    Pros

    You will get to work with some brilliant people, generally good team spirits and get to attend the odd lavish event.
    Top tier clients.
    You will become a well rounded consultant.
    Your powerpoint skills will go through the roof.
    The Deloitte brand is very strong and it will open doors for you.

    Cons

    Very cliquey, especially at higher levels, everyone has their favourites.
    Expected to put in 12 hour days and then find time for business and practice development, not doing so will reflect badly in your year end review.
    Pitiful bonuses, don't expect more than 1-2k.
    Poorly paid vs. the work you are doing.
    The golden carrot of partnership is not real for 99%.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out pay and bonuses.
    Value people outside of your list of favourites.
    Pay attention to who's been working away for long periods and get them on London based projects.

    Pros

    Great collaborative culture, supportive and encourages agile and flexible work arrangements in the internal client services space.

    Cons

    The nature of working in a LLP means that global decisions often take a long time and being innovative in learning solutions is a challenge as the firm is so consensus driven.

    Pros

    Good team spirit, due to its size very personable.
    Flatter hierarchy than you would imagine, relationships are key not only titles.
    Once you have trust; very open to innovation, building responsibility and no micro-managing (depending on your manager of course).
    Along with innovating, you can take your own direction. If you have an idea, contact the LCSP, build the proposal, choose the industry, everything is open to you.
    Interesting onsites (travel around the world depending on your clients).
    The work can be interesting, coupled with the level of exposure to senior management early on (client/third party CEO, CIO, heads of function etc), it is fantastic real-world experience.
    CV-wise, fantastic.
    Very predictable promotional and pay structure.

    Cons

    Your experience massively depends on your area of work/role/team (as with most jobs), hours especially.
    Pay is sub-par for the amount of work expected. Work hours can be long (depending on deadlines). This is based on the business model of high-employee turnover in the first three years (pre-ACA)...Then again work hours can be short when it is quiet.
    Canteen is not subsidized.
    Bonus is...wait, what bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay.

    Pros

    Big name to put on your CV - if you're fresh out of uni and see an advert for easy money, simple contract work with Deloitte, it's totally worth it! Also got good experience working with Excel in a pretty complex way, which I wouldn't have otherwise learnt in my preferred industry, but has proven to be helpful. Managers vary enormously - some incredibly good, some fairly ignorant. Some of the other graduates were surprised with offers of permanent roles at the end of the 6 month contact - we had all been told at the beginning that it would only be the 6 months so was a pleasant surprise for those who had worked hard and were rewarded. Although this was also where the favouritism of the managers was exposed, as some people whose work was of a poor standard were kept on over other, much better contractors, and it was usually because they got on well with the managers!

    Cons

    As above, managers vary, some are amazing, some are bad. Was part of a team of 20 or so graduates doing what the senior managers considered to be menial work, and we overheard them referring to us as 'resources' several times - pretty weird to be that detached from other humans! Pay was pretty poor, even for a first graduate role.

    Pros

    The name on the cv always looks good

    Cons

    Either your face fits or it doesn't ? Still legacy of Arthur Andersen which splits London office. Deloitte doesn't know how to foster experienced talent, only the recent graduate drones. Drones is how you will be treated.

    Advice to Management

    Performing audits on the basis of updating last years file and box ticking is just asking for trouble. Not challenging issues might keep the client happy in the short run but will inevitably lead to errors being missed.

    Difficult to get established and culture can be overwhelming but perseverance is the key.

    Clarity of progression and greater assistance to do so would be welcome.
