    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - flexible work arrangements - great staff and team - coffee is delicious - putting forward great initiatives (though some Partners do not follow) - fun activities throughout the year, if you can fund time to attend

    Cons

    - low pay - long hours - some do not follow proper promotion procedures - need to be able to work overtime without notice - 10 step interview process was a little excessive

    Advice to Management

    - review coaching procedures as I have not met with my coach in over a year, even though requests have been sent - review work/life balance and try to change perception of the firm - encourage your lower level staff rather then constant pressure

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office space with big windows and different seating options, work from home option too, health benefits are good. Good holiday party.

    Cons

    Work can be mundane, leadership can be unsupportive, no budget for travel for certain groups. Salary increases are small. Little opportunity for interaction at office if team located elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that for employees who work remotely, management should encourage occasional travel to interact with team on-site. Career growth opportunities and learning externally should be encouraged as well.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance compared to other locations due to the public sector focus - lots of bright people - friendly atmosphere, not competitive internally. The firm actively promotes inclusive values and you can actually see a lot of diversity ("visible minorities" and women are well represented at all levels of the organization). - the organization is not as vertical as it seems. Partners are busy but are always...

    Cons

    - Everyone is expected to work on "PRD" activity (i.e. Sales and "Firm development" which means recruitment, on-boarding, internal projects, PoV). This model does not fit everyone and can create tensions. Promotions/raises/bonuses are officially not only based on your delivery results but also on "how much you contributed to the firm growth". - The consulting practice has been growing rapidly the last few years and the...

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can not to lose the culture while growing and dont recruit anyone just because you need a body....it will eventually backfire. Focus 80% of your time on what matters.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    If you put the work in, the firm can give you work you are interested in sometimes. The buddy system has potential to do great things when executed properly. Additionally the work space is catching up to modern ergonomics and conditions. Great place to start a career if you are unsure of what you wish to do as a new graduate, or a place to transition your career to something else that isn't as costly as another degree.

    Cons

    Many of the projects are just redressed deliverables of previous clients. This is a result of too many projects being bid on to cover large overhead and a focus on profit not value. Much of the culture is non confrontational and in many instances feedback had to be solicited from the office grapevine rather than the buddy that is assigned to give the feedback that colleagues send his/her way. There is an unofficial...

    Advice to Management

    Deloitte can be a great place sometimes, but if management could fix one thing I would recommend the pressure to not log the hours employees are actually working. Hardly anyone ever recorded more than 40 hours yet the actual average work week was 60+ hours. This creates a problem, because the data will show that 'x' amount of work is being completed at '40' hours, which is false. This creates an illusion that employees...
