    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging projects with interesting clients, excellent colleagues to work with.

    Cons

    At the time the performance management system was very subjective and ability to steer career path vs need to be utilised on client site did not give give great autonomy to practitioners.

    Advice to Management

    Greater profit sharing incentives with practitioners beyond partner would help motivate those who feel under-compensated for the efforts they put in.

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

    Pros

    Will take a chance on you if you show potential and come from a different sector. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow and take on responsibility - constant push to move up in terms of your responsibility.

    Cons

    Poor culture, such a big London office - 8000 people and you rarely see the same people twice. Also its a VERY competitive environment, people aren't there to be your friend, they are their to get above you and get the promotion. The people are interested in money and the average 26 year old is married and settled. Don't come here to make friends.

    Pros

    -team-work approach
    - excellent training
    - work with global clients
    - it is a multinational company that values the entrepreneurial spirit and appreciates the talents of its employees

    Cons

    -overload of work
    -sometimes tough deadlines, and stressful situations.
    - Deloitte can move you to some international project, and it might be difficult for some people to balance their family and work life.

    Advice to Management

    The management of the company can still fight against the new green paper, as it will change the whole structure of audit, and accounting industry. Overall, I am satisfied with the management of Deloitte and its business approach.
