Working Hours at Deloitte

How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

Currently come in early and leave early to better suit my activities.
Graduate, Sydney
No one would really keep track of how many hours I work. However, I would work till I am satisfied with how much work I've done which could sometimes mean a bit of overtime. If needed, I could leave a bit earlier if I have something on outside of work.
Graduate, Sydney
As long as you meet your engagements and time sheet demands, you can have any balance you want
Graduate, Melbourne
The company is flexible when it comes to working arrangements whether its working from home, taking leave, etc.

7.5 hours is the minimum, although I typically do 8 just because I want to finish things off at the end of the day. Hours are very flexible. I can start and finish at whatever time I want and working from home is also an option when sick.
Graduate, Melbourne
Focus is all about results, not hours. Some people start at 8, some at 10, my boss has been known to send me home at 4 if things are done.
Graduate, Melbourne
As a grad there is not that much flexibility, however in saying that if you had some commitments/ Deloitte is willing to work around it
Graduate, Sydney
I work minimum 7.5 hour days - they are flexible.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very flexible - normally get in around 8:15 and leave at 4:45 - 5
Graduate, Darwin
Official hours at 8:45-5:15 but it is highly flexible. I don't take my laptop home and don't feel the need to work from home. You can take breaks throughout the day, just get your work done.
Graduate, Sydney
It's up and down. When there's a deliverable we work hard but we have the option to work from home and they pay for our cabs and dinner. Otherwise the hours aren't too bad.
Graduate, Melbourne
They are quite flexible, as long as you get the work done it doesn't matter if you need to leave early one day
Graduate, Perth
flexible, came in early and finish when you have done your hours. able to work from home
Graduate, Sydney
Very flexible, but dependent on the project. I am able to work from home easily if needed, or arrive and leave early/late - we are trusted to work our own hours (equating to 37.5 per week), as long as we get the work done.
Graduate, Melbourne
8:45 - 5:45. Company is extremely flexible and working from home is available.
Graduate, Sydney
Flexible, although it is expected to be in the office generally.
Graduate, Melbourne
9-5 with the occasional 9-6.30. Company is flexible though with consultancy depends on the client.
Graduate, Melbourne
Before I started in my role, I had expected to be working long hours every week based on the experiences of people I know in graduate jobs and consulting more specifically. These reference points where not employees from my company though, and once I arrived I realised that the hours are far more manageable than expected. Occasionally I work late or on weekends, but only when necessary. I have worked from home a few times, and flexible working is definitely encouraged.
Graduate, Melbourne
I generally work 9-5. Most projects will do those hours. If you got something due in the near future that can extend to 6pm, 7pm later if need be but it really depends. Its the same as uni, if you work well in the beginning you wont have late nights! With that being said if you travel to client work i.e. fly down Monday morning, they generally are happy if you come in around 10am and leave around 4pm. They understand flying takes it out of you and you might need a rest. The general motto is, get your work done and no one really minds where you are or what you do. If you go have lunch with your family from 2-3pm but you completed all your work, no ones going to worry about where you were. If you leave at 2pm for a haircut or dentist once again, prepare early, finish your work and no one will question it (just don’t make a habit of doing it every week, they might start to catch on). If you are sick work from home, if you need a rest work from home, just explain it to your project lead, get your work done, make sure if someone needs to contact you they can and you should be all good. Key points at Deloitte: 1. Make sure someone knows where you are and why 2. Get your work done, don’t leave someone high and dry 3. If you need a break, tell someone, they will help. 4. If you are out of the office during 9-5pm make sure you can be contacted!!!
Graduate, Brisbane
8.45-5.30 roughly
Graduate, Sydney
Understand there will be busy periods but also down time
Graduate, Sydney
37.5 hour work week - was used to 35 hours. But VERY flexible with working from home and the start and end hours.
Graduate, Sydney
Flexible working arrangements and plenty of time onsite with clients to really get stuck into the work
Graduate, Melbourne
Very, I still train for footy and can move my hours around my life.
Graduate, Sydney
work hours can be flexible if need be. You just need to make up that time later by coning earlier or leaving later which isn't much of an issue
Graduate, Canberra
It is tough to come to terms with working long hours especially after University. It depends on the teams you work in. Generally it is pretty flexible to leave for outside responsibilities like sport or whatever it may be. But you can bet that these hours will be made up anyways. It is not so much that they make you work long hours, it just takes a lot of hours to complete the work you get.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very happy, If you are getting the work done their is no need to stay and everyone is happy to work around any commitments you are.
Graduate, Sydney
Work life balance is good but it could be improved further especially around times where there are multiple deadlines to be met
