I worked at Protiviti

Pros

-Great people and good office environment
-Good exposure to Senior Management
-Plenty of opportunities to advance career
-Generous vacation policy
-Great place to begin a career, get exposure to a number of clients, and to build good basic consulting/auditing skills

Cons

-Protiviti offers a broad spectrum of business consulting solutions, but there are very few strategic projects that actually get sold.
-The lack of strategic consulting projects results in a lack of opportunities to build a solid knowledge base in a particular area. As you progress through your career, Protivit project experiences will help you develop good basic consulting/auditing skills, but won't help you develop deep focused consulting skills.
-The compensation is below average

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The incentive compensation plan doesn't work well with the "solutions" approach. It's hard to justify why someone would want to work on developing and selling solutions when the ICP is clearly focused on the audit and sox work (charging in a consistent 40 hours/week at a lower bill rate).

    I worked at Protiviti

    Pros

    Work-life balance is probably the only truly positive side, but if you really care about your career and are not interested in boring audit or compliance project, please, DO NOT consider Protiviti.

    Cons

    Not a bad place to start for a college graduate but I'm sure after 1-2 years in the company the most competent people become dissatisfied from the lack of initiative from senior management to develop the business and lack of growth opportunities. Therefore, the majority of the talented people tend to leave the company, which is not surprising at all given the miserable benefits & salaries offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and get a realistic strategy for the future. You won't make it with the low-cost consulting firm image because it's not working.
