    Pros

    Working with some of the smartest people I've ever met
    Learning Opportunities
    Accelerated Advancement
    Challenges from day one
    Empowerment

    Cons

    Lack of management sensitivity over personal time
    Constantly changing and unpredictable schedule
    Secrecy about office status and direction
    Guarding your words lest someone miss-interpret your praise or complaints

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more frank about office policies, career advancement and opportunities
    Do not allow clients to push our teams to work slave hours
    Be honest with recruits about time/travel commitments - the benefits of the job can definitely make it worth it, but people need to know what to expect
    Don't be so strict about recruitment majors - be open to hiring more than accountants

    Pros

    It is a great place to start a career. You will learn a lot even as a Consultant and with the right mentor or manager you will be able to progress your career well. As always consulting depends on the project you're worknig on so attitude varies from time to time. The security practice is doing well in the east coast and it seems to be the place to be in if you want to succeed. Also, paid time off is another great benefit at Protiviti. You start out with 20 days off which is pretty good compared to industry.

    Cons

    One of the biggest downside of Protiviti is compensation and benefits. I have complained about it for 3 years now nothing has changed. Protiviti is struggling to diversify their portfolio now that SOX work is declining. Also, structure in the Vienna, VA office is all kinds of messed up. There is substantial amount of upper management compared to consultants and senior consultants. You will end up doing consultant work on projects. Also, budget hours for some reviews seem to be low so you will struggle with maintaining budget and time as well. Lastly, communication from upper management is weak. There has been incidents where communication would have been nice regarding strategy of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater communication, market research to ensure salaries are competitive
