    Great culture, a friendly desirable place to work.

    Cons

    Large office has politics, but otherwise overwhelmingly friendly

    Pros

    Good culture - supportive and fun. Good place to work if you're passionate about your industry i.e. audit / tax.

    Cons

    Lots of empty buzzwords thrown around by management. Classic business style driven by recovery, timesheets and utilisation etc. Your promotion more driven by 'perceptions' than actual technical knowledge.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in Sydney
    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in Sydney

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

    Pros

    The only real pro is having Deloitte on your cv.

    Cons

    Deloitte private generally start you at a level below you are currently working at. This enables them to pay you at a lower wage but you will be expected to work at the level above which you were employed. Deloitte staff are overworked due to them undercutting the competitors in the market due to paying staff low wages. Wages overed include superannuation which again undercuts people. Work life balance is horrendous and polirics is crazy within the firm. Stay well clear !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please sort out the politics in the firm, Pay staff better and stop taking advantage of those coming from Europe by paying them low wages compared to market rate.

    Good learning experience but low pay

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Various projects,various clients, various teams, training is good, many inspiring partners, exposure to client's problems, learn many good methodologies to solve client's problems

    Cons

    Low pay (below industry average), no work life balance (just work no life, finishing work at midnight and work on the weekends are normal and expected), your promotion depends on partner's decision (due to many factors, not just your performance)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on their incentive management, otherwise they will lose the top talent

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Team is very competent, you don't have to pick up the slack for others.
    The office culture is very good and it has a good diversity programme.

    Cons

    There is a relatively rigid promotion structure. There is also significant variation in worker experience depending on the department/service line that you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax rules relating to speed and timing of promotions

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work for clients from different industries which is helpful once you decide to leave the company. Most of workers are from different parts of world (although mostly from politically unstable and poor countries) which is nice if you are able to appreciate learning about different cultures and views.

    Cons

    This was by far the worst employer I ever had. The culture of bullying has a top-down design and you will be bullied until you learn how to bully downwards. Performance reviews are basically a blame game where the most important thing to learn, if you are to survive them, is how to blame someone else when project goes wrong. And projects go wrong all the time due to incompetent management and chase for market-share. Integrity is priority zero - top level management, from directors to partners, certified public accountants, certified internal/external auditors, certified forensic auditors will go as low as to lie under oath. Total deterioration of moral values. It will make you disgusted by the whole profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you happened to work in this company, you should leave as soon as you possibly can. There is nothing you can do as 'manager' - this company is rotten top-down.
