I have been working at Protiviti full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Good work / life balance (40-45 hours / week is normal; lots of vacation days)
- Work travel can be extensive
- Good culture but it can be hard to reconnect with people when you never go to the office
- Young vibe

Cons

- It's very easy to get stuck on the same project for a long period of time
- Work travel can be extensive
- Salary is competitive with Big Four but not with most mid-size to large / top consulting firms
- It can be tough to convince Management to send personnel to specific trainings applicable to client work
- The bulk of our firm's work is Internal Audit; it's very easy to get stuck on IA / SOX projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more encouraging of applicable training and self-study / professional degrees and programs. Also, think outside of the SOX / IA box! Real consulting work is so much more fun. Finally, encourage personnel to be in the office on Fridays. If I wanted to work for my client full-time on-site, I would just do that instead of being a consultant / contractor. Being able to reconnect with people in our own company once a week or once every other week helps keep us loyal to our own firm.

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed working with my workers. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    You can get pigeonholed into one field that you are not interested in. It can be very hard to get off a long term engagement.

    I have been working at Protiviti full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules unless you have a lot of client work
    Relaxed work from home policy
    Great atmosphere, everyone is friendly and cool
    Good benefits and time off
    Good promotions

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours or weekends, but that is consulting. Even so management appreciates hard work and rewards employees
    There may be long periods of time where you are not on a project or you are on the same project for a while, but again that comes with the industry
