    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place to work, filled with challenging opportunities, interesting work, and dedicated colleagues. The rotation of clients, projects, and teams makes things exciting and filled with learning.

    Cons

    It can be exhausting to maintain this pace over the long term. Opportunities for advancement to partnership/director are dictated by personal performance and market conditions, and sometimes the market conditions are not there. Keep focused on learning and advancement, and know when to pull the plug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be cautious of your overzealous admiration of direct admit partners/directors. External hires are not often more successful than internal candidates, especially when looked through a long-term lens. By dismissing internal candidates, you run the risk of demotivating potential stars.

    Former Employee - Proofreader in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always a lot of work

    Cons

    Always a lot of work and cheap with compensation. May be better if you are "a professional" as they say.
    I was always reminded that things were different since I wasn't a professional.
    I couldn't move up to translator because I didn't have enough experience and there was no way to get any at Deloitte. Their slogan is something like helping our clients and our people. I t should read some of our people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure management tells employees how it is. Information from direct supervisors and ultimate boss, on performance, was contradictory sometimes. My boss ruled through fear. My direct supervisors though was wonderful. They didn't pay well and It was known for some categories there were no further career opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Big, lots of options, lots of client. Great UFE track record

    Cons

    Workload and expectations. About same amount of auditors as other big 4 in Montreal, but far more audit mandates for HQs (vs. reviews or referrals).

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

    Pros

    As with most consulting jobs in a "big 4", you will find here an interesting job with
    • good clients,
    • lots of learning opportunities,
    • a great team, and
    • the potential to develop yourself

    Cons

    On the flip side of this consulting coin, you need to be ready for long work hours, with pressure on chargeability, and few recognition of overtime

    Pros

    Relatively young people who are corporate machines (or in the making) and it is a good culture to support achievement even though it is really a subjective opinion.

    Cons

    No overtime. Surrounded by overachievers and overtime it can become overwhelming. Evaluations are really subjective to one's opinion about you.

    Incredible knowledge in this company, you just need to find where it is thought the word.

    Since it's an huge organization, it has no choice to be slow and not really flexible. But that's how you maintain your reputation of quality.
