    Pros

    Very young company - lots of socialising
    Salaries are generally competitive on entry point
    Good opportunities with well recognised clients and brand names
    Good opportunities to travel if that's your thing

    Cons

    Bonus can be a bit miserable, reward decisions often blanket so little incentive to push the boundaries
    Easy to get pigeon holed into doing the same thing

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible and accountable for decision making

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

    Pros

    -Brilliant access to training, learning and expertise - you will be developed quickly
    - Even if you are young, you are pushed and exposed to challenging work and big clients
    -Despite inconsistent approaches - hard work and loyalty is broadly rewarded with progression and excellent pay
    -The firm is genuinely invested in being innovative - but isn't always sure how it wants to be innovative, so follow through is an issue
    -If you can travel freely, and have minimal home commitments, then there is no ceiling for your career

    Cons

    -Performance management processes are laughably bad and bad behaviour is rarely challenged meaningfully
    -Regardless of promises or job profiles - you WILL travel and you WILL be staffed in client roles that don't always reflect your expertise
    -Client work is paramount and exciting, but you WILL be dragged into tedious internal work that only serves someone else's interest
    -You will meet consultants who INSIST you spend four hours aligning visual content, agonising over colour palettes and formatting slides and documents. If you've ever employed a consultant on a daily rate this peek behind the curtain will enrage you and colour your opinion of pro services forever more...

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte is a great firm. But there is a rotten attitude rampant throughout - if people aren't happy they can leave. Which is an issue when SO MANY PEOPLE LEAVE ANNUALLY.

    Taking all your templates, methods, tricks, expertise and sales knowledge with them into a competitor's (or, even worse, a client's) office

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work on projects for some large clients. Everyone is pretty smart and hardworking, so it's a breath of fresh air working in that environment. Being apart of Deloitte, they've got the backing and network of a company that has been around for years.

    Cons

    Onboarding isn't very role specific. You'll find yourself in the first few weeks being bundled together with other people in different areas of Deloitte.
