    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked within a really good actuarial team. The work was interesting and as deloitte is so successful lots of very good and interesting clients.

    Cons

    Short internship. Didn't get the chance to generate many cons as I was only there 6 weeks. I would have preferred working more flexible hours as I always liked to come in early anyway and felt like hanging around at the end of the day when I had completed all my work.

    Advice to Management

    Flexi time would be advantageous. Increased volume of internship activities to get to know the interns in different departments.

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

    Pros

    Good exposure to lots of different businesses and a great name for your CV. There is also excellent opportunity to travel.

    Cons

    Poor pay when compared with working in Industry. The hours are also long with lots of work done by analytical software so the remaining work is very repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are the most overworked. My advice to the partners would be to stop lowballing offers so they have sufficient funds to book enough people to do the job effectively.

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

    Pros

    There are some genuine people

    Cons

    Worst Deloitte office ever! I trained with Deloitte and the culture was great, progression clear and senior management supportive. I moved to the Birmingham office 2 years ago and Deloitte as been the worst thing to ever happend to me; long hours, no recognition, no clear path for progression, partners were 2 faced and not supportive, your own teams gossip about you incl. partners, you are treated like a resource and not like a human who has feelings and your voice is never heard. If planning to move to Birmingham, definately choose another Big 4. I left and zero regrets. Worst 2 years of my life

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. People make the firm and you neee to keep your best people not give them no option but to leave. I saw some great talent leavinf Deloitte Birmingham which is sad.
