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

    Pros

    You learn a lot very quickly, and even after over 2 years I still feel like I'm learning and being challenged every day.

    Everyone I work with from Deloitte is always so much fun and are amazing at what they do, which again provides me an opportunity to learn about areas outside my competency.

    Cons

    Big corporate company politics sometimes come into play, not that that's unexpected, just frustrating sometimes. And while the pay is below industry the learning opportunities outweigh the benefits of a higher pay for me

    What you would expect from a large corporate organisation – hierarchical, competitive, slow moving, uninspiring culture

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

    Pros

    - Great culture (as others have mentioned)
    - inspiring and ambitious leaders
    - lots of youth, and lots of growth
    - Deloitte's focus on technology/digital consulting offerings I think have put it in a great position for the near-mid future within Australia

    Cons

    - Low pay (particularly lower end roles). Typically jumping to industry doubles your pay
    - Work life balance is not good
    - The opportunities/growth that is supposed to be the trade-off for low pay in consulting - sometimes they don't come. At the lower end of consulting, this is mostly luck or lack thereof, since you have little influence over sales. This is very dependant on your Partners leading the team
    - Politics, which is basically unavoidable at any large professional organisation, can get frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Good intentions are there, but you need to be very careful with politics, favoritism within the team in particular. Everyone is very well aware that we could be getting far more working in industry, so we expect fair opportunities for everyone. Team morale can unravel very very quickly from small things, and then it becomes a snowball of people leaving.

    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!

    Sometimes long hours on projects and challenging when you need to travel for work. Sacrifices are required

    Advice to Management

    Need to reward and recognise staff more
