    Pros

    It is a great place to be a graduate. You learn with the best and develop yourself.

    Cons

    It can be quite a challenge if you don't work in the right team at the start. You also have to get used to the culture

    A poorly thought out summer vacation program.

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

    Pros

    Interns are paid fantastically, and aren't expected to do coffee runs, photocopying/menial tasks, etc. which is certainly a pro. You are integrated quickly and effectively, and efforts are made to connect you with as many people as possible right away, which is fantastic.

    Cons

    The biggest issue was that often, there would just be absolutely nothing for interns to do. It was already on the interns to seek out their own work (which I believe is not an effective use of time, given that the vacation programs are so short), but sometimes there was just no work to be found. What made this more frustrating was that you were still expected to be at the office for unreasonably long hours, even if you had no work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try adding a little more structure and guidance to the vacation program! Everything else was fantastic (aside from the total lack of work/life balance), but the fact that the vacation program is so hit/miss is really, really dissatisfying.

    Pros

    Work with all member firms, grow your network internationally, travel opportunities

    Cons

    Limited visibility into end to end working for an engagement due to off shoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more onsite travel on short term rotation.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    None really. Doesn't compare to the other big4's yet thinks its the best

    Cons

    Too much politics. Managers and above review your every move and a slight hesitation here and there will see you out of the company. I chose DTT above another big 4 and regretting my decision all the way.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, young group of people mostly with optimistic working styles. Good career progression if you can handle the pressure. Access to Partners from an early stage.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Support from the business can be thin, especially during busy season.
    Unless you're cut out for the work and lifestyle, this environment will be punishing.
    Generally underpaid, however training and having the name of the firm on your resume does make up for it in the short term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay bands. Consider changing workflow to enable better work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Good training, good name to add to your CV, usually they will fund further study, as it is a large organization you are likely to make good contacts

    Cons

    Low pay, VERY hierarchical; it is a very formal workplace (may be a pro for some people) so you need to watch what you say in front of partners/senior managers (no jokes), very long hours with very little recognition.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Deloitte has a very open work culture, excellent mentoring and training programs and amazing leaders to work closely with and gain industry experience.

    Cons

    The benefits like in any consulting firm takes a hit because of the revenue model. The work within projects is quite hectic to explore multiple opportunities across different domains and parallel service lines
