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 Management

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.

    Pros

    1) Staff have good knowledge.
    2) Staff are helpful.
    3) Good choice of laptops and mobile phones.
    4) Laptops and mobile phones get updated regularly.
    5) Generally a good IT environment.
    6) Good office location and facilities.
    7) Very good induction process into the company.

    Cons

    1) Boredom is the number 1 complaint share by my collegues (multiple departments). Too little work to keep us occupied.
    2) Socially dull. People don't go out and mingle outside of work.
    3) Some IT systems (in particular networks and Internet access) is far too slow (not helped by helpdesk collegues streaming videos throughout the day).
    4) Have to pay for car parking.
    5) LIttle training.
    6) No bonuses.
    7) Personal Development Review is a lot of time and paperwork which never seems to account for anything whether you get good or neutral feedback.
    8) No opportunity for career progression (within the company).

    Advice to Management

    Should fire people who come into work (late - and then have extended lunch-breaks) and do very little work, but instead surf the Internet, watch videos (e.g. football or South Park), or make phonecalls from their desk all day

  2. A good place to get broad consulting experience

    Pros

    Top clients, top people, great travel opportunities especially with global projects.

    Cons

    Little choice about projects and therefore career direction. Salary roughly in line with competitors but not good enough to match the sign on bonuses other companies offer at the moment. Still a little too focused on seniority through length of time in grade rather than promoting stars quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Need some serious bonuses and salary increases this year to retain people who are looking elsewhere
