Pros

You get the brand name 'Deloitte' placed on your resume but their good corporate reputation is not deserved.

Cons

Your impressions of Deloitte changes dramatically once you commence employment. There is no time for chatter or social interaction of any kind with other staff members because everybody is too busy and stressed out after working a 12 hour day. For some reason Partners are treated like gods and you are constantly under daily surveillance from Directors pressuring you with unrealistic work loads within deadlines that are ridiculous. Deloitte are stingy and no budget is provided, meaning you are under resourced most of the time. After working hard all year you get to Christmas and the entire department is still working till 6pm on Christmas eve. Then comes performance review time where you hope to get a pay rise for your hard earned efforts. Deloitte is well known to order management to "make up" under performance issues to avoid any pay rises for its top performing staff. It also helps at Deloitte if you are a 'yes' man or woman, especially at middle management level - the last thing that upper management wants is someone that actually has an opinion and has the courage to express it! Oh and the so called corporate credit card, well you have to take that out in your own name and you are out of pocket for a month until Deloitte pays you back your work expenses.

Advice to Management

Take a look at the lack of work life balance placed on staff and then ask why staff turnover is rife. For an organisation that does very well financially, how about paying competitive salaries.

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

    Pros

    !. Flexible work timings with work from home options.
    2. Ample of growth and career opportunities.
    3. Community involvement apart from focus on client work.
    4. Lots of learning opportunities to enhance our skill set.

    Cons

    1. Not so comfortable work-life balance especially for women since we end up working for around 12 hours or more than that during the busy season.
    2. Individual talents are not sometimes recognized and importance is given to people coming from top Institutions than others though they may not possess some extraordinary skill set or talent.

    Advice to Management

    Individuals at the same level should be treated equally irrespective of which institution they are coming from. Individual talents must be recognized. The compensation for people at the same level coming from two different institutions with similar skill set is significantly different. There should be some way by which this difference should be reduced especially when the people possess equal number of experience and skill set.
    In fact in few cases, a person with more than 7 years of experience is paid less than the new hires with no experience just because they are from big institutes. I don't think this is fair since they don't have the capability to work on the client projects so efficiently as the person with experience.
