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

    Pros

    Colleagues are helpful and supportive. Work is flexible. You master your own destiny.

    Cons

    Mastering your own destiny requires a certain type of mindset to really make the most of that cultural approach.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on with new starters from industry.

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

    Pros

    Large year group, easy to make friends
    Designated time off for study leave - however you must sit 3 exams in one go
    Learn a lot in 3 years chance to progress management skills by default

    Cons

    Extremely long hours - worked out less than minimum wages when quantified
    Expectation to travel little/no consideration for your work life balance
    Senior management team disliked by those lower down, they seem to have forgotten what it was like to be an associate
    Stressful environment felt by all, but no one dare speak up for fear of being weak
    They have a Christmas award called the 'Dolly Parton' - actively seek to shame people who want a normal work life balance
    Culture of staying late for the sake of it, fear of being seen as slacking

    Advice to Management

    The culture and working hours demoralise staff. The staff turnover is high and majority of people leave at the end of their training contract for a reason. Hire more staff to lighten the load to all. Senior management need to be more understanding about the pressures they put on people and remember what it was like to juggle work load, exams, a personal life.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. A very open culture, where you are the owner of your own career. There are no restrictions on the type of work you can do (e.g. grade, experience), if you want to be involved in a project you generally can.

    Cons

    Deloitte make money from charging employee's time, therefore you can work long hours. Also a very money driven firm, you will spend a lot of time issuing and then chasing invoices.

    Advice to Management

    Put the client first and everything else will follow.

    Hard work but worth it. My day flies by and I always feel driven to achieve my best. The company treats you well from the start.

    Pros

    Friendly and inclusive culture
    Great social life
    Supportive work environment
    Great office location
    The process to transfer from the Summer Vacation Scheme to a permanent role was supportive and well structured.

    Cons

    Nothing significant, the work load can vary significantly throughout the year especially when you're in a lower level position but it is always manageable and there is always support available

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say here really, but need to write at least twenty words. Just keep up the good work and maintain the meritocracy that works so well.

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

    Pros

    Extensive overview of Deloitte's functions. Learned about integrating services such as IT, Data Analytics, Digital Risk to provide holistic solutions to clients' problems.

    Cons

    Programme was not long enough, only 2 days. Some on the work can be repetitive, where processes can feel systematic.
