    Great place to work in many ways, lots of opportunities if you really wanted them and were smart about it, loads of great and smart people. Also I managed to achieve a pretty solid work life balance

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company is really trying to improve work-life balance. There are many great initiatives around promoting responsible business, including respect and inclusion, reducing carbon footprint and mental wellbeing. This is a good name to have on your CV. The general intellectual standard of employee is good to brilliant. You are pushed to operate in fast paced, continuously changing environments and therefore develop the skills to be flexible and adaptable. These are excellent transferrable skills and will likely get you recognised. Excellent benefits in terms of additional holiday and agile working arrangements.

    Cons

    Although initiatives to improve work-life balance are ongoing, there is still a long way to go. This is mainly down to the existing culture which needs to be broken down. And in a client facing role, it is expected to align to their work patterns. It can be really hit and miss depending on the project, the client and if senior management have embraced the "new ways of working". Fact - it is a big corporate, you are one in a several thousand employees, and you are easily replaced. If you want to be noticed or promoted you will need to go all out. I'm talking burning the candle at both ends, being attached to your phone 24/7 to respond to emails at all hours of the day and then of course "networking" your way through the ranks. Quality work and loyalty are not good enough to get you to the next grade. It's cut throat and you need to play the game to survive/progress.
