Good place to start a career, but limited opportunities to work on true consulting projects

Manager (Former Employee)

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 Senior ManagementThe 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).
