    Pros

    Australian graduates will have the opportunity to have their Induction Training with all the graduates from across the country in Melbourne. I thought this was a great idea as it built our networks within the company from day one.

    Graduates are also sent to the United States for training with the US graduates (and some other countries), This further builds your network on a global scale, which is priceless in my opinion.

    So far I have found the culture here to be really "family" like, everyone is keen to socialise in and out of work, I have made some great work mates since starting in March 2014.

    I could ramble on about all the support and training Protiviti provides to their graduates, but you should just apply and find out for yourselves! (Happy to elaborate if requested though)

    Cons

    Job scheduling can sometimes become quite hectic, work becomes quite busy at times. This problem is sort of a false Con, as this means there will always be work for you and you will not be idling at your desk doing nothing.

    I have been working at Protiviti

    Pros

    After working at an auditing firm with dry/unenthusiastic employees, Protiviti was a nice upgrade. Everyone I met was professional, outgoing, hardworking, fun-loving, and intelligent. The employees are sharp at every level. The C-Suite team wants to keep the employees challenged and satisfied, which is evidenced by the open door policy and the number of morale-driving incentives. Team members encourage honesty, integrity, and work-life balance.

    Cons

    You can be staffed on a project that never ends, but "scope crawl" is just a part of consulting. The firm is growing a lot in the past 10 years, but it is difficult to fully understand where the company is going. The pay is nothing short of dismal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benchmark the payscale with other consulting companies..

    I have been working at Protiviti

    Pros

    Since starting at Protiviti, I have been exposed to multiple industries and allowed the oppurtunity to build my experience in all those fields. I was not getting that at my prior position where i was positioned in only one industry. The people are great to work with and if you work hard, you are rewarded for it

    Cons

    The benefits could use an adjustment to add more coverage for those with families.

    Pros

    people, people, people, people, people

    Cons

    As with any consulting firm, professional services is dependent on clients and prospects ability to spend $$. Given the economy, a consulting firm's revenue and cost structure must remain align. As a result, Protiviti's downsides are no different than the Big-4 and other large consulting firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on the pending rebound in the economy.

    Pros

    Great people! Competitive Salary, exposure to all industries and types of clients, exposure to varying projects, ability to take on responsibility that is not delegated downward in most consulting firms. If you are interested in taking ownership or your career and advancing quickly this is a good fit for you.

    Cons

    Can't work from home below Manager Level. Unproductive when commuting 3 hours total in one day
