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

    Pros

    Fantastic culture and great people - some truly excellent leaders who really care about their staff
    Access to lots of specialists to solve client issues
    Genuinely interesting work

    Cons

    Capabilities are variable across the firm's different units
    Partner model creates unnecessary politics and is a barrier to collaboration
    Can be very bureaucratic with too little support to navigate behemoth internal processes

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to reduce the red tape and incentivise better collaboration - we work better with our clients than with each other at times!

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great global Brand, Majority of people are intelligent, hardworking and honest. Great clients and exposure to a wide array of markets. Good starting point for your career. Options available to travel and work for Deloitte in other countries (like any big 4). You will learn lots and lots via practical application (even though you don't know what your doing).

    Cons

    Poor pay, some long hours. Partnership lacks integrity -bulling, exclusion and misinformation appears to be common. Don't expect Partners to have your back, they will throw staff under the bus at the first sign of trouble. The exec leadership lack interpersonal skills and are generally aggressive and unpleasant to deal with. No real (formal qualification) training like other Deloitte firms provide. Lots and lots of stick and little to no carrot. -Significantly Below Expectations.

    Advice to Management

    The Partnership need to buck up there ideas. Staff are leaving in droves - the majority with negative feelings towards the company. Your staff are your life blood, treat them with respect. Worth considering scrapping Risk and absorbing into consulting. Remove the partners who contribute little and just surf other's coat tails (you know who they are). Your brand is not viewed positively in the Australian market - do something about it you can not continue to depend on the old Deloitte brand to carry you -people talk and it's not pretty.

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

    Pros

    The sink or swim approach to staff from the partnership forces you to adapt to the poorly managed environment. Sometimes you get praised for hard work, Deloitte name on your CV, Travel can be fun but be prepared to give up your own time rather than work time for flights - you will not get recognised for this.

    Cons

    Poor Pay, lack of leadership, Sink or swim / carrot and stick approach - you never ever get the carrot. Constant revolving door of staff – massive staff retention issues which the partners choose to ignore, some think its "good"

    My advice would be to avoid joining Risk Advisory.

    Advice to Management

    Risk Advisory has failed, fold into consulting. Get rid of the physio Partners – you know who they are, they are destroying the brand
