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

    Pros

    good development opportunities through learning, you drive your own career path, great people

    Cons

    Hiring process was over 10 months long with poor communication and promise from HR support. (seems to be like a very common theme in the business!)

    Advice to Management

    revise hiring process

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Deloitte is the job security and perks (e.g. additional holiday). I have learnt a lot and overall it has been a great experience.

    Cons

    The worst thing is the level of autonomy. You do feel like a little cog in a big machine. It is difficult to be heard and senior staff do not seem to distinguish between hard workers and freeloaders... which does make you lose interest.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise your best performers, ensure quality in delivery.

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

    Pros

    People are nice, lots of events to socialisse

    Cons

    Unfair towards employees. Example 1: Not clear on promotions and salary ranges. Something changes every year. In mid May they announced new AM3 grade which means now AM2s cannot became manager but will become AM3. Seems intentionally not told in advance so that people work hard and motivated.
    Example 2: When all service lines performed better in terms of revenue and profit, salaries have been decreased using Brexit uncertainty excuse when no other Big 4 company did this. It was made clear in July-August to everyone, as usual late information.
    Not having enough staff. Managers always working as associate, seems like meaningless to get promoted every year as we are doing the same things every year. Partners does not care about it.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest to be fair and appreciate employees.
    Give better chance to managers and even AM2s (now AM3s as well) to demonstrate themselves.

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

    Pros

    Transparency in progression, incredibly smart hardworking colleagues, on site subsidised gym, breadth in industries covered so there are lots of opportunities to learn about whatever you're interested. Also have links to lots of incredible companies from the FTSE100 allowing you to learn about many different ones and build strong client relationships. The projects available are mostly very interesting!

    Company laptop and mobile phone are always great quality (latest models) and our support functions (e.g. IT) are fantastic, supporting us to be efficient. London offices are also well located and in some areas of the business there's a good collaborative culture.

    Great pension, you can contribute 8% and get 12%. Ability to buy up to ten days of extra annual leave each year.

    Can work from home sometimes.

    For Senior Consultant and above we have great benefits package.

    At work socials Deloitte provide plenty of food and drink, which is free.

    Cons

    In Consulting, often work is taken on which is not scoped correctly and is unachievable within an 8-6pm time frame. As such, we work hard for long hours. Expect to be working at 100% all of the time and don't plan to have lunch breaks. Sometimes, you are asked to cancel evening plans and with little flexibility.

    Not enough seats for the number of people!

    Pay progression is poor so ensure you come in on a good salary from the beginning!

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, scope work correctly and listen when people are saying they're burnt out. Reward financially and foster a better culture of risk management and stress management.
