    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Work with lots of like-minded and driven people.
    There are plenty of opportunities to impress - I got the distinct imjpression it was easier to impress and stand out in a regional office compared to in London when I discussed work with colleagues.
    You can work on engagements with big firms, FTSE 100/250 regularly.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt as if people were more interesting in progressing up the well-trodden ladder, rather than actually work on skills and get better at their job. Ultimately I think this is what caused a lack of technical knowledge and technical progression within the department.

    Advice to Management

    Highlught opportunities that wil; be available to those who develop technical skills as opposed to relying upon being a Deloitte alumnus for the rest of their career,.
