    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Investment in development, breadth of experience opportunities, opportunity for travel, very experienced and open colleagues, large variety of clients

    Cons

    Above and beyond client delivery there is an expectation to support business development and practice development initiatives which can take up a significant period of time

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in top talent focusing more on retaining your best people - too many great people have left in the past five years

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Nice team and some highly intelligent colleagues
    No need ever to pitch to win business
    Some quality mandates
    Opportunities to stay with Deloitte and move abroad
    Salaries broadly in line with M&A boutique averages
    Not IB hours

    Cons

    Completely pointless working hard, bonuses are minimal and promotion is more like progress through school years than based on merit
    Required to work on mandates handed to you by the wider firm so sometimes poor quality
    High equity partner salaries without bringing in new business promotes mediocrity
    Training is borderline pointless
    Large firm, incredibly inefficient, compliance and rules kills any commercialism. I probably spent 50% of my time actually doing my job and 50% doing rubbish I had to do
    Everyone good leaves once Deloitte is on their CV and they have some experience

    Advice to Management

    Sort out your CFA (M&A advisory) department, it's a mess.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Nice people
    -Clear promotion structure
    -Good offices
    -Travel around for audit to client site
    -Good pay (for signing your soul away to boredom)

    Cons

    - Long hours for busy season
    -Don’t have a say where you’re assigned in your first 4 years. They can send you to Scotland if they want and you can’t argue it unless you offer someone else as tribute
    -All socials revolve around drinking (can be a pro for some people but not for those who don’t drink and usually get left out)
    -Staying away from family due to travelling
    -Clients will most likely despise you

    Advice to Management

    Nothing management can do, it’s just the industry. Actually maybe there is, how about assigning/hiring more people to jobs so you’re not always on the ropes with deadlines.
