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

    Pros

    -reputable
    -large company so lots of resources and travel if you like

    Cons

    -Partners do not invest in employee retention because they can replace so easliy. During my time there, turnover in some teams was over 80%
    -Pay is uncompetitive. Both salary and bonus is 30-50% below industry. Do your research!
    -No work life balance. Projects are priced to win and not reaslitic. Be okay with working 12 hour days and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously reconsider your value proposition for employee. It's working now but in time, you will lose top talent.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work in an environment that challenging, changing, and with talented colleagues who are driven to perform and achieve excellence.

    Global mobility opportunities.

    Annual career progression

    Structural training, assigned coaches.

    Cons

    Lack of management care for their people. Deloitte is branded on the success of their people, and they emphasize this in Annual General meetings and internal emails that it’s the employees that really make Deloitte a successful business. I can honestly say that this is all marketing. Very little of these values are felt. I certainly feel like I am just a number. The bottom line is what matters (obviously) and this is evident from the unhealthy long hours and stress the firm puts on you as “normal” part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for managers and above. Not much you can lead if your team is defeated, burnt out, and feeling unappreciated.

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

    Pros

    Part of a large company that is great in what they do. The pay is good and most of the professionals, from partners, to senior mangers and colleagues are mostly friendly and respectful. Great friendships developed there!

    Competitive salary compared to the other big 4s
    Lots of fun office activities put together, though often too busy to participate in them.

    Cons

    Worked with the One Team Professional as an Administrative Assistant. The position was very micromanaged. The work was monotonous and no opportunity to learn new skill. The employee turn over in these departments were high.
    Very busy in the summer and most of team member were burnt out from stressful work.
    Pay is good but its not worth the level of work stress pressure and micro management experienced there.

    Good learning experience and methodologies to deliver projects.
    Good network

    Cons

    Lots of travel
    National model where leaders don’t understand staff

    Death by a thousand cuts

    Management need to focus on more than sales. Consulting needs to look at leaders and their behaviour

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -you get to work with multiple big companies and build a great network for your next steps
    - a great place to jumpstart your career for a year or two and move on to better positions elsewhere

    Cons

    -salary is way below the industry average
    -you will have to work long hours and often on the weekend too
    -partners are sales people, ALL they care about is the number of billable hours
    but with all that said,
    -office politics and favoritism are the main reasons I am leaving my job to go back to industry

    Advice to Management

    learn how to say thank you to people who work 50+ hours per week making it possible for you to sell and stay Deloitte.
