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

    Pros

    Deloitte is a large, global firm that provides services to fill nearly every professional non-investment need. There are a lot career paths (e.g. starting in audit, move to corporate finance). For professional services firms, Deloitte is one of the most prestigious (if not THE most prestigious). Transaction services is very interesting and engaging. The people are smart, friendly, and hard-working. PLENTY of holiday. Training opportunities are abundant.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours for low pay. Some work is very menial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the bonus scheme.

    Pros

    Great training program, sense of ownership from day 1, Seniors on hand to advise on how to best get promoted. Respected employee welfare.

    Cons

    Long hours, Was hardly in the office so difficult to meet colleagues regularly, Pay was low in the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More administrative help (i.e. time sheets, expenses, travel booking)
    More fixed teams - so you work with the same colleagues from project to project

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

    Pros

    Family friendly, work with very bright and humble people. Being a global brand, have the opportunity to get involved with global projects

    Cons

    The salary isn't great - bonuses are crap.
    Consulting isn't run very well ( especially finance!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better projects for experienced hires in consulting.
    Current on boarding process for experienced hires especially in consulting sucks!

    Former Employee - Manager (Consulting) in London, England
    Former Employee - Manager (Consulting) in London, England

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Significant differentiation in promotion timescales for top performers, competitive pay (for Big Four), real sense of pride in work and sense that Deloitte are "winning" in the consulting market. Great socials (Michelin star meals, track days, theatre) and work-life balance very manageable (50 - 60 hours a week on average).

    Cons

    Contrived sales target system from Manager upwards - extensions rewarded in the same way as "green field" sales. Can get into long term transformation programmes which cause you to "go native" at certain clients. Senior (Director/ Partner) staff almost entirely focussed on relationship management; much less focus on content than at top-tier firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proactively monitor consultants on long term projects to ensure continued variety and satisfaction. Overhaul sales target system and consider scrapping quantitative element altogether up to Director grade.

    Pros

    Great opportunities, international travel if in the right projects/teams

    Cons

    Like any big four firm - long hours and feels like a 'rat race'. Offering isn't truly differentiated from other consulting firms - try to be everything to everyone

    Pros

    Opportunities for early responsibility and interesting work.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be hard to strike. Not unreasonable but moving in terms of location, projects and service lines are dependent on the demand for that move.

    Pros

    Variety of experience.
    Interesting clients.
    Potential (if you play your cards right) to interact at C level in organisations
    Strong brand to have on your CV
    Reasonably clever people (definitely variable!)

    Cons

    It is not even close to being a meritocracy. You get promoted in line with time in grade.
    Reward is relatively low (there is an unusually large disparity between partner earnings and employees).
    Senior people are so sales orientated that taking care of the people is at best secondary and at worst neglected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about how to retain good people. It appears that you're happy to let everyone go over time because there'll always be someone to replace them. But that surely isn't in the firm's or client's interests.
