ProsGood core business in audit and IT audit. You could do very well and be successful if your specialties are aligned with Protiviti's core business. It can be tough if you have a specialty outside the firm's core business. People who stick it out and suffer through the lower ranks will eventually get promoted (sometimes rather quickly) and will get paid very well.... but you do need to suffer quite a few years first. If you stick it out, long term it's a great place to be.

ConsHours can be extremely long (nights, weekends, travel) and compensation doesn't necessarily match the commitment. People (in same peer group) are paid more or less the same (+/- 5K) regardless of whether you are top performer or bottom performer. Very little incentive to go above and beyond. You are incentivized to be mediocre and as a result there are very many mediocrities at the company. The bottom people often get laid off (up or out) and the top people sadly leave for better opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay scale is disproportionate. The top management is very well paid ($$$ millions) and bottom staffers are barely paying their rent. Pay seems to be more based on seniority vs one's ability / performance. Other consulting firms of roughly equivalent size are not as disproportionate in pay. Joe Tarantino (CEO) is a real good guy though. He does care about his people. Many folks in senior management also genuinely care.
