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

    Pros

    Good people below manager level

    Cons

    Inability to properly gauge value delivered results in the tendency to promote the loudest and most self assured employees to manager regardless of their abilities to work with people

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and actively nurture a culture of support and growth where people are recognized on their merits and contributions rather than allowing one to exist where good people are held down for arbitrary reasons and decide to leave. I realize this is not easy, but still something to strive for.

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

    Pros

    Wide resourcing, flexible benefits, competitive salary, manageable work/life balance and talent pool is diverse with talent with deep industry knowledge

    Cons

    Sometimes client pressures are put before employee welfare and junior employees can have little say in what work/what exposure they get. In addition, some times as a junior in a big team you can easily go under the radar.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that staff are using their strengths and you're exploiting our skills. If we want to develop certain skills take this into consideration when making resourcing decisions.

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

    Pros

    Generally strongly shared values and attitude towards quality. A good training program and an excellent place to start a career.

    Working with the top companies as an apprentice/graduate is an exciting and valuable experience.

    Most assistant managers are more than happy to sit with juniors an explain how to do things/ why we do things despite being under very difficult time-pressures themselves.

    Cons

    Employees have very different experiences during their training contract depending on which stream they are put in (i.e. public sector/listed/international). Some teams will work consistently longer hours than others despite being paid the same.

    Appraisals aren't consistent enough to reflect these differing workloads in each stream: it's as though there is a quota for each annual rating (1-5) for each stream rather than evaluating a year group as a whole. This process still has a long way to go in terms of transparency.

    Advice to Management

    At induction events, audit is portrayed in an unrealistically positive light: a place where success and work-life-balance are both achievable at all times of the year if you work hard enough. Sometimes a balance simply is not possible, and quite often a project will go wrong despite putting in all the effort possible.

    A more honest and realistic introduction at the beginning, combined with more practical advice on how to manage the competing pressure of exams/work during busy season would go a long way to preventing people having unrealistic expectations and a subsequent morale crash later on.
