    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

    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

    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.

    Pros

    I actually have good work life balance unlike alot of other people. Senior management can be good and bad, need to pick the right boss to work for.

    Cons

    Depends on which project you work on and which area you work in. Large consulting jobs tend to budget and plan properly. Beware of discounted work!

    Pros

    Deloitte has a genuine direction, and is improving every day. The real top dogs are very serious about making it a seriously good place to work.

    Cons

    Deloitte is desperately trying to move away from its reputation as the “sick puppy” of the big four, however there are still too many residual managers from its darker days, and the hangover from a once toxic culture remains. Many of the senior managers are more concerned with bullying staff then getting the job done, and are very reluctant to support more junior staff, and even reluctant to get the job done for the clients. The firm is still very hierarchical and any manager who has been there since the “sick puppy” days will expect to be treated like a king. Although the top management has a clear and well thought out strategy, in Deloitte’s own words, culture beats strategy. Unless the “old” culture of hierarchy, stifling of free thinking, and workplace bullying is extinguished, the strategy will never come to fruition.
