    I worked at Deloitte part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very focused on their people, career advancement and learning new skills, quality work, large scale projects that made a difference to the organisation they are supporting.

    Cons

    As with all professional services companies, it is a hard slog, can be long hours, constant performance reviews, quite relentless pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with expansion plans but place more active support for Deloitte alumni finding alternative employment in industry.

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating. Excellent range of work and clients. Chance to work with 'top end of town' corporate clients. Good team. Smart people. Self-motivation. Chance to make your own agenda.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure. Difficult targets. Stressful. Long hours. Lots of people suffering stress and anxiety. Hard to balance client work with business development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try and work people into the ground - make the work sustainable and enjoyable. If the volume of work was lower, this would be one of the best jobs in the world.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some good people, inovation is strong, good set of clients.

    Cons

    To many to list.

    Poor pay, v poor local leadership - staff are treated with contempt, bulling wildly accepted means of managemnt.

    Progression: Deloitte dangles carrots making staff think a path to partner is real- the reality is that the carrot does not exist. The partnership will use every bit of energy you have (with little reward or thanks) until you fail to deliver at which point they will spit you out.

    If you have no life, want to wake each night worrying - this is the place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your staff are your life blood, treat them with respect.
