    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (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.

    Disappointing

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Sydney
    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Sydney

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Work-life balance
    * Met some great people
    * Learnt and got required training to get the hell out of Deloitte

    Cons

    * Too much politics at Deloitte
    * Overlooked on certain promotional opportunities because I do not kiss bottom's
    * A lot of people getting promoted who aren't actually skilled, but just good at kissing bottom's and rubbing partner's egos
    * Unequal opportunity when you see a staff promoted every six months in National Finance, from assistant accountant to financial controller of Risk and doesn't know anything and falls flat on her face, cries because the partner abuses her for her lack of knowledge and reporting incorrect numbers.
    * Harsh reality, the performance reviews mean nothing, partner's already choose who they will promote a few months before the performance reviews even finalise
    * Varying salaries even on different staff levels, some senior consultants earn as much as a manager.
    * CA Program has been changed and no longer provides the choices it used to.
    * Due to tough times in financial services, a lot of staff are being 'pushed out' using methods of natural attritions, no promotions, perform them out - ugly truth!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Get rid of certain partners, alternate your internal partners the way you alternate your audit partners.
    * Long standing staff with complaints against them should be reviewed
    * National Finance directors/partner's are useless.

    Horrible

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Good brand name on CV. Good for starting your career after uni.

    Cons

    Worse consulting firm for lateral hires. Never ever start your career with this one if you are a lateral hire. Go somewhere else!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stepping on peoples throats. It is not talking you anywhere.

    Great culture, equal opportunity employer but a lot of politics to deal with

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consulting Manager in Sydney
    Current Employee - Consulting Manager in Sydney

    I have been working at Deloitte (more than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to clients and business environments is fantastic. Deloitte is not seen as a great pay master but at least 2-3 years of experience at Deloitte is great on the CV. Paid parental leave is significant for Manager and above. Deloitte is highly respected in the industry, so the business card will take you places.

    Cons

    A hell lot of politics to deal with, especially between Partners. You need to have alignment to key senior folks who will watch out for you and take care of you. If you are unlucky to be in a position where you are "orphaned" it is hard to navigate the organisation. One has to spend a lot of time building relationships, watching one's back and dealing with the politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better mentoring opportunities to create a cross service line, "holistic" experience for the candidate and make sure they are recognised for the contribution they are making in terms of their willingness to work and their attitude, NOT their utilisation alone.

    Ditch D.Academy - I found it to be a waste of time but that is just my humble opinion.
