    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Full of smart, fun & impressive people. You will be constantly challenged. You very much get out what you out what you put in, unlimited opportunities if you are bold. Your cv will always thank you for working here!

    Cons

    Avoid too many long term projects. Easy to get forgotten. Showing your face in the office / practice development is key to getting by. Pay can be average, bonuses not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work across service lines more effectively.

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

    Pros

    Year group socials events and activities.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Constant overtime with no compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your greatest asset - the staff. In turn the best staff will stay instead of leaving as is the norm.

    Good company to get some experience for a couple of years and launch your career...

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Good experience, good exposure, although it depends on the country. I was in audit and I learned the basics of audit at Deloitte.

    Cons

    Very low salaries, hard to transfer internally, no work-life balance... Also, management is very stingy and would much rather let you leave before the end your one month notice period just to save on your salary!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You grow with your employees, if you don't invest in them and instead count every dollar u spend and focus on saving (especially in Lebanon!!) then your reputation will be ruined. Also, focus on building your own business model, don't copy the model of your competitor! I've worked at 3 different Big 4 firms, and I can tell you for certain that being #1 in terms of revenue doesn't mean you won, it's forgotten once you lose it, but the quality of your products is what u'll be remembered for and honestly your products' quality is subpar compared one other competitor and that is why to me you are not the #1 firm!

    I worked for nearly two years in the department of Financial Advisory Services.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor

    Pros

    Developed professional skills, exposed to various kinds of projects but also got useful work experience in order to follow postgraduate studies later in of the best universities in the world.

    Cons

    You begin learning new things exponentially, however after a period of 3 years on average your see your work as a routine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture of the company and the working conditions are what really matters and they seem to do a good job out there.

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

    Pros

    Development opportunities, excellent brand and market respect, young bright hard-working colleagues

    Cons

    Drive to be a distinctice firm in every aspect but pay strategy is to pay mid-band with very, very low bonuses - how is this distinctive? how does this attract/retain the best? Partners are overpaid- highest paid in big 4 which creates challenges at lower levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up talent focus and brand positioning but seriously review your pay
