Great place to work at if you are a young parent wanting to spend time with their kids due to the fact that you can work from home. Not much growth within the firm and salary not attractive

I was very happy with this role

It's a great place to learn but not so great for a family.
Even if you're at home you still need to be available which can get tricky.


Good people, management could be better

Sense of comaraderie

Hectic work weeks

I will work again for Deloitte, within a heartbeat, if an opportunity arises. One needs to be willing to go the extra mile when deployed to Clients as the reputation of Deloitte is regarded in very high esteem. It is good for an Individual's growth within the field as the Directors and Senior Management lead by an exceptionally high standard. Besides, once the Deloitte name brand is reflected on One's Curriculum Vitae, it is obvious that the Individual's attributes are of a very high quality and sought after, within the field.

- A typical day at work is extremely productive and all employees are willing to go the extra mile without being asked.

- What I learnt is that allowing staff to plan their own work execution and not micro managing creates the best work environment (ofcourse there are exceptions to the rule)


- Management is always willing to lend a helping hand and provide proper guidance to ensure proper execution of duties by all staff, Management leads by example.


- Co-workers are motivational, also always happy to lend a helping hand and ensure that the entire team succeeds which ultimately means success for the individual.


- The hardest part was leaving such a pleasant work atmosphere.
Pros
The celebrations

We have a daily checking where the management explain to us in detail our daily tasks.
The management gives us freedom to chose how we perfom our daily tasks and they also give us suggestions on how we can perfom our tasks.

My co workers and I also have our discussions on how we think we could better complete our tasks.

We try to view all our daily task as one project for all of us and work as a team.

The hardest part is trying to fit in all our daily tasks and see them as one project.

The most enjoyable part is working together as a team.
Pros
Good managent skills
Cons
long hours with no overtime pay

Deloitte has been a great company to work at. They encourage further learning and they constantly send their employees to attend short courses to help develop them. They allow their employees to work with minimum supervision in order to train them to be able to have good leadership skills.
Pros
Free snacks before 10:00am and drinks every Thursday and Friday
Cons
Long hours depending on the work at hand

The days at the workplace differ from day to day, sometimes very busy and other times not busy at all. I learned how to work with different people at a corporate place and also learned how to engage with different types of clients. I worked with different managers whereby some were good and others were not so good but learned how to get along with all. They are very different as individuals and all the office politics that goes around but managed to work well with them especially as a team. I would not say there was a hard part which I experienced on the job. When working with difficult clients and getting weird computers to image or even error on the processes I run, I eventually get through it and I take is a challenge and a learning curve. I enjoyed travelling to client premises around the country and abroad doing my job and experiencing different environments and different people.
Pros
work at home, working at different times acquiring at least 40 hrs. weekly depending on the client.
Cons
growth within the company, performance reviews and the system used to rate us versus the nature of our job.
