    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 worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to earn experience by working with top clients

    Cons

    Lack of team structure
    No direction from senior leadership
    If they do not want you then management will blame you on all the mistaje which you never did

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to your employee and provide a job spec when you hire.

    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 worked at Deloitte as an intern

    Pros

    Decent hours, quite good pay for an intern and a broad range of projects sometimes very interesting. Exposure to senior clients. HR was helpful and hosted lots of socials

    Cons

    People were not that social and seemed quite depressed or maybe how people feel working in general. Sometimes you don't have much work to do and you can feel quite useless

    Advice to Management

    More structured

    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.
