    Pros

    Like a lot of professional services firm, Protiviti offers a good place to start your career. You have an opportunity to gain practical work experience in a variety of industries and locations. The benefits package is decent and the vacation package is competitive.

    Cons

    Protiviti was late in adjusting its focus from SOX audit to general consulting services. Over the past two years, the local leadership has been predicting the decline of Sarbanes Oxley related work, yet no apparent shift or adaptation seemed to occur until after the economy began its decline. The firm has been reluctant to invest in it's resilient niche service offerings like IT security, opting instead to keep the entire firm in the same compensation and career model. Locally this has lead to a lot of resignations in the growth areas and a lot of layoffs in the stagnant areas. The shift to general consulting services appears to be more of a marketing move than an operational move, as very few offices and service lines are making the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate the shift to the new consulting methodology. If the firm wants to build a general business consulting platform, then people with consulting experience need to be hired from the top down to foster this change. Resources with marketable niche skills like IT security need to be compensated competitively or they will continue to seek more rewarding employment with competitors and industry. Perhaps the old Andersen pyramid model should be left to the Big Four and Protiviti should work on adopting a model that allows for more diversification and deeper specialization.

    Pros

    The good people that remain and the memory of what an exciting place this can be to work.

    Cons

    Leadership leaves a lot to be desired; especially with the downturn of the economy, the leadership team has floundered with decision making. And in making those decisions has done a poor job communicating news to the company.
    Salary = poor
    Lack of career development and growth
    For a relatively small company the management team is out of touch with the Senior and Consultant levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise to stop reacting without deep consideration to the issues, and once decisions are made, better communicate that to the company or your specific offices/regions. Solicit advice from lower level individuals in the company to gauge their reaction to the economy, areas for opportunity/growth for Protiviti, and what actions can be made to make this a more satisfactory environment to work in. Ask yourself why people who have been here 5+ years are just losing loyalty (and not only to do with their bonuses, salary, etc)...
