    I worked at Deloitte for more 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.

  2. Great Opportunities, Difficult Lifestyle

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Good quality socials (often with an open bar) - Diverse range of clients/sectors to work with - Working with competent professionals - Very employable after leaving + infinite opportunities within the company itself that you can explore

    Cons

    - The work can get quite samey - The support isn't always there when you need it - You're often rushed to finish work that winds up being low quality (much harder to take pride in what you do - this can be pretty frustrating) - There is a culture of working late, even on the rare day when there isn't a whole lot to do to keep up appearances.

    Advice to Management

    - Things are going to slip through the cracks if a job is seriously rushed (in audit this is particularly bad news) At the same time though, even the large firms are constantly competing to keep client costs down so they can offer a competitive price for the audit and win new clients (doesn't seem like there is a way around it - resources are always going to be scarce)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    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.

    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...
