    Pros

    Extensive overview of Deloitte's functions. Learned about integrating services such as IT, Data Analytics, Digital Risk to provide holistic solutions to clients' problems.

    Cons

    Programme was not long enough, only 2 days. Some on the work can be repetitive, where processes can feel systematic.

    Good people but low remuneration and long working hours. Good place to start your career (3 - 5 years) but that's it

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

    Pros

    1. Good people
    2. Great experience working with multiple clients
    3. Structured hierarchy and promotions

    Cons

    1. Many times your work is not recognised and when it is, it's not reflected in your salary or anything of substance
    2. Salary is average but when you take into account the the effort and the hours you work it's actually low
    3. Bonuses are low (very low actually- they would be better off not giving out bonuses as by giving a 1%-2% bonus is insulting)
    4. Little to no work-life balance
    5. Lack of employee retention - High calibre employees leave due to long hours without reflecting this in their salaries and this results in a vicious cycle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of ways to retain you quality employees and not simply the workaholics. Salaries, work-life balance and bonuses are a good start.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in London, England

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good company with perfectly reasonable base salaries and work life balance. Top rate clients and big projects, generally considered fairly high prestige.

    Cons

    Huge cohort each year means finding individual career paths are challenging. Bonuses are relatively low and process for rapid promotions is relatively inflexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to keep strong performers while moving poor performers on.

    Pros

    Promotions are quick and fast. The company has great values. You will be treated like a person and have many different socials etc to get to know the people in your year groups.

    Cons

    You will work a lot more hours than you will be paid for. Benefits are ok but not all that great in the scheme of things looking at other companies.

    Great place to hone your consulting skills and build experience of a number of companies in every possible sector.
    Deloitte is one of the elite consultancies in the world and will set you up with skills that any other company would would live to have.

    Cons

    You have to be in the mind-set that you will work hard to build your skills and better yourself, for your benefit and for the companies benefit.

    Former Employee - Director  in  London, England
    Former Employee - Director in London, England

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place to grow your skills, work with highly motivated, clever people and get a broad experience in business. Fantastic opportunities to do amazing projects - as long as you are willing to travel and work hard. Made some great friends

    Cons

    Long hours, frequent weekend working, and a very aggressive approach to performance management. Deloitte used to pay well, but lack of growth in the last 3-4 years has seen pay freezes and very low bonuses. There is a perception that the partners are taking all the cash for themselves!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation is becoming a real issue. The progression to promotion increasingly seems slow and laborious.
