1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

5/10

My days generally consist of rolling forward files i.e. updating them from last year to this year and checking that the financial statements are consistent

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

7/10

I have learnt to use Excel more proficiently and also how to talk to clients and colleagues in a professional manner allowing me to develop good relationships

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

4/10

I enjoy it but it is very challenging. Having come straight from school the social aspect is very limiting working full time and the pay is below standard.

4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?

8/10

I feel valued by Deloitte as my manager and my seniors are always eager to help me not only in work but should I have any personal issues I feel comfortable to discuss them.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

4/10

My Programmme is relatively well structured but it goes without saying that there is lots of space for improvement. It is difficult working the same as a graduate but getting paid far far less.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

4/10

I do not receive much support from my training provider and it is not customised to the individual but more like a mass factory which is a pity as I know many could benefit from it.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

4/10

I do not receive much support from my employer and it is not customised to the individual but more like a mass factory which is a pity as I know many could benefit from it.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

2/10

My salary does not cover all my costs on a monthly basis and I do not consume much other than what is necessary i.e. food, rent, travel. This is a struggle for my day to day life.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

2/10

There are not many opportunities outside of work which I enjoy as most of them are alcohol fuelled. Sadly there is much more scope for activities which do not include drink or gambling.

9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *

No

9b. Why? *

I would recommend if you are a school leaver to take a gap year or study at university before embarking on this dry career. It is worth living and experiencing as a student as this is one of my biggest regrets,

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *

I would advise you to thoroughly understand your service line and expectations as well as the current economic climate and big headliners in the news.
