    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    ADMs (alternative delivery models) in Deloitte have given me a lot of valuable experience since joining in an entry level role. I have been promoted twice in two years.

    Cons

    ADMs (alternative delivery models) in Deloitte do not put aside a lot of money for staff as they are a cost saving exercise so I am underpaid in comparison to similar roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, the model works - but look for ways members of Assistant Manager grade in ADMs can progress upwards.

    Pros

    Grads start together in a big group so you make friends quickly.
    Free fruit in the office.

    Cons

    Work/life balance.
    Lots of travel (which they don't tell you about until you start) and overnight stays, sometimes up to 6 weeks at a time.
    Not paid enough for the hours or stress levels.
    Treated like children - very patronising as everyone has 'grades' and you are referred to as 'the S1s' or 'the AM1s' around the office.
    Very segregated in offices... people stick to who they know, which is pretty sad for the newbies.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear of the pros and cons during recruitment. Try to make the teams more inclusive.
