    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart and talented people.
    Great team spirit and team work.
    Challenging, but highly inspiring projects.
    The Firm supports your personal growth with a lots of learning and internal trainings.
    Networking is very important part of your job.
    It's definitiely not a clasic "body shop" type of consulting company, this is very profesional company and you might be very positively suprised with the culture, especially if you joining from some smaller consultancy.

    Cons

    If you are not familiar with the large consulting companies - you will be lost. It's quite complicated and highly political environment. If you are not good at corporate politics, you might get frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was an experienced hire. I've been hired for my technical skills but thanks the internal politics I didn't get on the projects I was qualified for, and instead doing something else. This is not good. If you hire someone for the skills let them contribute not be drown in politics. I love Deloitte, but iternal politics was too complicated for me, and I am not probably alone who left for the same reason.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, talented people with whom you become friends for life. Good work-life balance although it does get stressful at times. Company's culture is great, really helpful and intelligent people around. The variety of projects is quite diverse.

    Cons

    High employee turnover, uneven workload. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work more on employee retention as some of the best people leave the company after about 1-2 years of working at the company.

    Pros

    Great people, very high performance environment, high profile clients

    Cons

    Pay doesn't compensate for long hours or travel, no ownership of outputs, very varied work (I.e great or really boring).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the talent you have and give that talent a voice, otherwise you'll end up with machines.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They hire smart, fun and social people into the graduate scheme. Lots of social events. Work hours aren't all that bad (9 to 7 is pretty standard). Opportunities for travel. Easy-going work atmosphere in the office.

    Cons

    Most projects are long, dull, dull, dull and do not require any particular intellectual skills. Analyst alignment process is chaotic and unfair at best, and dishonest at worst. Meritocracy does not exist, at least at lower levels. Don't expect anyone to care about your interests or experience despite whatever you've been told during recruitment. Lots of politicking and/or luck required if you want to work in a certain area or on a certain client. Leadership is seen with a lot of distrust. Low morale amongst the analyst cohort - talking about qutting is a popular activity. Pay is nothing to brag about either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I expected better management from a company that thinks of itself as a top-tier management consultancy.

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

    Pros

    Learning and development opportunities at every level of the firm. A good mix of functional, industry and cross firm learning.
    Clear and fair career progression in client facing functions.
    Flexibility and support to shape your own career in client facing functions.
    True flexible working.
    Supportive leadership team.
    Work life balance can be achieved easily in an internal support function role, and is possible although variable in a client facing role.
    Good maternity package.

    Cons

    No clear career progression for internal support functions.
    Salary is not competitve for a big five organisation, bonus is dismal.
    Poor and multiple internal repository systems.
    High turnover in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make total compensation more competitve and pay existing employees in line with new, external hires brought into the organisation. It will quickly improve retention and employee engagement.
