    None to call out

    I worked at Deloitte part-time

    Pros

    Varied work, large clients, given responsibility early

    Cons

    At times work was less intellectually stimulating than hoped for. This was, however, at a junior level and therefore to be expected.

    Interesting projects

    Not adding any real value to clients

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Good training
    Good career progression path
    Work from home

    Cons

    Not paid so well for what you work

    Hectic when working with colleagues who are not competent or have serious attitude issues. No disciplinary consequences to these people and they are usually get promoted, which demotivates other hard working ones.

    Advice to Management

    Hold those who damage the engagements into account, please do not promote those who are not competent enough to be manager or senior manager.......otherwise the good people will keep leaving

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

    Pros

    Great offices and facilities. Newly built HQ which is pretty special, even for audit staff (it's mainly for clients and their associated key revenue-generating departments, like consulting and advisory).
    Access to the best and biggest clients in the world, something you don't get outside Big 4 accounting firms
    ACA fully funded
    Phone scheme is very cheap
    Prestigious name for your CV
    Excellent training as far as Graduate schemes go
    Good hours outside busy season and ability to work from home
    Opportunities to move internally or externally so you're never trapped (after you finish your ACA!)
    Job security. Never heard of anyone being fired for anything other than gross misconduct

    Cons

    Seen as a 'departure lounge' in audit. Most people don't stay beyond their first 4 years. The presumption of this leads to a clear lack of motivation across the department
    The pay is poor relative to other FS jobs. It's also the lowest of the Big 4. No proper bonuses. Work twice as hard as someone else and they'll give you £600 in your first year
    A LOT of time at the client site - I hated not being able to get into a proper routine / cycle to work / go to the gym

    Advice to Management

    I understand that the way that audit works. You do what you have to do. But you could help staff feel more relevant at lower levels by encouraging more socials and focusing more on the coaching system. Employees should be encouraged to get more out of Deloitte, which will help them feel more necessary and will in turn boost their motivation to give more back.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good quality socials (often with an open bar)
    - Diverse range of clients/sectors to work with
    - Working with competent professionals
    - Very employable after leaving + infinite opportunities within the company itself that you can explore

    Cons

    - The work can get quite samey
    - The support isn't always there when you need it
    - You're often rushed to finish work that winds up being low quality (much harder to take pride in what you do - this can be pretty frustrating)
    - There is a culture of working late, even on the rare day when there isn't a whole lot to do to keep up appearances.

    Advice to Management

    - Things are going to slip through the cracks if a job is seriously rushed (in audit this is particularly bad news)
    At the same time though, even the large firms are constantly competing to keep client costs down so they can offer a competitive price for the audit and win new clients (doesn't seem like there is a way around it - resources are always going to be scarce)

    Pros

    Deloitte is a good company to start a career, you learn a lot and have the opportunity to see different companies in different sectors all around the world.

    Cons

    However, the staff recognition is really disappointing, the salary are surprinsingly low and the working hours long.
