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

    Pros

    The company has a big name which you can "sell" well after some years. YOu will learn a lot of tools and working with competent professionals.

    Cons

    The work load is very huge and sometimes quite repetitive. The salary is very low at the beginning and does not increase properly with time.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Work-life balance
    * Met some great people
    * Learnt and got required training to get the hell out of Deloitte

    Cons

    * Too much politics at Deloitte
    * Overlooked on certain promotional opportunities because I do not kiss bottom's
    * A lot of people getting promoted who aren't actually skilled, but just good at kissing bottom's and rubbing partner's egos
    * Unequal opportunity when you see a staff promoted every six months in National Finance, from assistant accountant to financial controller of Risk and doesn't know anything and falls flat on her face, cries because the partner abuses her for her lack of knowledge and reporting incorrect numbers.
    * Harsh reality, the performance reviews mean nothing, partner's already choose who they will promote a few months before the performance reviews even finalise
    * Varying salaries even on different staff levels, some senior consultants earn as much as a manager.
    * CA Program has been changed and no longer provides the choices it used to.
    * Due to tough times in financial services, a lot of staff are being 'pushed out' using methods of natural attritions, no promotions, perform them out - ugly truth!!!!

    Advice to Management

    * Get rid of certain partners, alternate your internal partners the way you alternate your audit partners.
    * Long standing staff with complaints against them should be reviewed
    * National Finance directors/partner's are useless.
