Boring

Summer Vacationer (Former Employee)
Perth, Western Australia

I worked at Deloitte LLP as an intern for less than a year

ProsHours were great. Lots of free time. The other vacationers were great and people in general were friendly, especially come Friday drinks.

ConsNever given anything challenging nor any proper client work. I never properly understood why they had me there if it was just to sit around and self-teach myself SQL.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more challenging work

Great culture and exposure. Everything else.. not so good

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsI loved the culture. The people there were more of a family and as a result we produced better results and worked perfectly as a team!

ConsDeloitte offices are different in different countries. What I observed with the office I was based at was, progression was very slow. The org. structure was quite frustrating, as sometimes promotions would be stalled because "there are too many seniors and not a lot of juniors", irregardless of how much you had performed.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your staff more. Sometimes it is better to keep them happy instead of always having to retrain and not retain.
Also, make changes to the org structure, even if it is an internal ranking, that at least shows staff that they are progressing and not stuck in one position

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

As long as you know what you want. Deloitte will open a lot of doors, and offer good growth opportunity.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Melbourne

I worked at Deloitte LLP full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBased on experience at Australian firm:

* Timely & frequent reviews (every 3 months on a project, plus twice a year) = valuable feedback to grow & learn from
* Surrounded by highly driven people
* Good diverse projects (if you push for them - See CON)
* Knowledgeable Partners
* Inspiring Board / Leaders
* Real focus on culture in recent years.
* Pays attention to professional / career growth
* Good opportunity to travel (if that's your thing - or a CON if that's not your thing)
* Great for grads to launch career (especially the diversity of projects)

ConsBased on experience at Australian firm:

* Promotion not based on pure merit or capability - but on relationships & project success (rewards free-riders)
* Consulting model works on maximising revenue from utilising your skills - which may not coincide with what you want to do - i.e. you end up trapped on bad projects / stuck with same kind of projects.
* But if you know what you want to do, and is willing to put in the time on bad projects to build your credibility & relationships within the firm with long term view of doing work you want. Deloitte works for you.
* You will be overlooked unless you shout loud - it's not a place where you can let quality of work speak for itself. You have to speak up to to build reputation in the firm.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut out the politics, weed out the boys clubs. Attribution in Australian firm in recent years due to lack of respect for employees with skills. Promotions & rewards went to people who shouted the loudest.

Great learning experience, long hours

Corporate Finance Manager (Former Employee)
Perth, Western Australia

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

ProsFantastic opportunities to tackle numerous and engaging projects. Learned a lot in a very short space of time

ConsVery long hours (70-80hr weeks) and very little gratitude, financial reward even when after receiving high performance reviews and promotions

Advice to Senior ManagementEngage your staff better and understand what their needs are. Specially top performers and big earners.

The best career move I have ever made

Manager (Current Employee)
Perth, Western Australia

I have been working at Deloitte LLP full-time

ProsConsulting in Australia: Dynamic work with sophisticated colleagues. Great respect for work-life balance and diversity. Mature workplace culture with excellent articulation and reinforcement of cultural expectations through the performance management process (see Seven Signals). Partnership group spends significant time understanding what drives staff and responding to attract and retain the best talent. Increasing trend of staff moving from boutique houses (ie McKinsey) to Deloitte. High performance culture and expectations.

ConsLike all big 4 firms in Australia, REM includes superannuation (9%). This % must be removed from any salary figure to calculate true salary. Bonuses are discretionary depending on market conditions under the Director band. When paid to junior staff, size of bonus depends on performance rating. Directors and above have formalised bonus structure, dependent again on performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvestigate ways to further incentivise excellent performance with bonuses.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to learn but there will always be a time to move on...

Senior Analyst (Former Employee)
Sydney

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

ProsDeloitte Australia has high quality people with a good focus on job performance. It is also a great place to develop a solid work ethic and high standards are always expected.

ConsLike any professional services firm they pay really badly (especially Deloitte Australia) and of course only partners earn any decent cash. That is why you learn and move on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Amazing culture, but some drawbacks

Corporate Tax Analyst (Former Employee)
Perth, Western Australia

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

ProsGood support for Masters of Tax or CA, amazing people to work with.
They support women and frequently promote them to senior levels.

ConsSome senior management are sociopathic.
Pay is not good enough.
Tax work is boring.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpending more time at work does not equal to being more hard working. That's just old school thinking.
