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

    Pros

    Good people below manager level

    Cons

    Inability to properly gauge value delivered results in the tendency to promote the loudest and most self assured employees to manager regardless of their abilities to work with people

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and actively nurture a culture of support and growth where people are recognized on their merits and contributions rather than allowing one to exist where good people are held down for arbitrary reasons and decide to leave. I realize this is not easy, but still something to strive for.

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

    Pros

    Wide resourcing, flexible benefits, competitive salary, manageable work/life balance and talent pool is diverse with talent with deep industry knowledge

    Cons

    Sometimes client pressures are put before employee welfare and junior employees can have little say in what work/what exposure they get. In addition, some times as a junior in a big team you can easily go under the radar.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that staff are using their strengths and you're exploiting our skills. If we want to develop certain skills take this into consideration when making resourcing decisions.

    Make salary more competitive to increase retention, encourage internal mobility if employees are not happy in current positions. Surely best to retain talent elsewhere in the business than lose out altogether.
