    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New, bright office
    Up to date technology
    Usual big firm benefits like training opportunities, private health, generous leave
    Ability to work from other offices

    Cons

    Constant restructuring
    Reluctance to replace support staff and stretching the support resources to breaking point
    Team seems constantly overloaded and morale is often very low

    Advice to Management

    Replace your support staff. The knock on affect of teams without support is massive and a huge morale killer for both the support staff (who don't have enough time to get everything done and feel pressured to work longer hours) and the technical staff (who can't deliver their work on time).

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None - it's a sweatshop!

    Cons

    Had to go for surgery and told my
    Job would not be kept open for me!
    Unrealistic targets, unpaid overtime to meet them, which I met but it didn't help me keep my job!

    Advice to Management

    Have some compassion! We are human beings, NOT just numbers!!! I have a mortgage and bills and if I wanted to leave, you expected 4 weeks notice, you afforded me THREE DAYS NOTICE!

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Varied work, lots of experience of big companies and great place to learn loads quickly. You will work with some of the best people in business in this job and the learning curve is incredible. If your ambitious and not afraid of a bit of hard work then you'll not find a place that supports your growth better than Deloitte.

    Cons

    Same as all big 4. Huge workloads and long hours. You'll be given plenty of responsibility pretty quickly which can be a good thing or a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and fix the work life balance. Yes you need lots of people for busy season and will never have enough at the time of year but as the economy grows so do we and the busy periods are extending to all year round.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    You meet great people, work on interesting project, chance to go abroad, looks great on your CV

    Cons

    Work life balance, expect to work long hours, poor recognition of performance, too much politics at Management level

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you recognise the best performers and reward them appropriately to avoid losing the best of talent.
