    ProsPEOPLE!! I work with great people daily. I learn a ton from them and then have the chance to turn around and teach others on my team too. Great culture with forward thinking strategy goals.

    ConsVariable levels of leadership. Really important to get on a team with a great leader and then learn and then the sky is the limit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership & Coaching for all levels, continue open door policy and great culture

    Audit Firm Masked As A Consultancy

    Business Risk Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    Pros-This is great if you like to audit. You'll get plenty of opportunities to do so.
    -Work life balance is easily maintained here.
    -There are 1-2 excellent colleagues out of your class of 30-40
    -The pay is more competitive than Big 4, but it's quite low compared to most other places AND you do not get the Big 4 brand name on your resume. I'm not recommending Big 4's assurance or advisory divisions--I don't think they're worth it at all if you're putting in their hours (you might as well pursue IB or true Management Consulting).

    Cons-They tell you they do consulting--they really don't.
    -No one ever gets fired unless they're mentally ill; thus, you have some really unthinkably dumb superiors. UNTHINKABLY. This results in the mediocrity increasing over time as the excellent people all leave to pursue better opportunities and other future excellent people not wanting to come in due to the fact that Protiviti is getting dumber and dumber.
    -

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a 20/70/10 model like GE and others to fire bad people and reward your best people. It's not rocket science. You'll see your brand and product quality increase significantly over a few years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Up and coming company with great culture; however, the work is very boring.

    Consultant II (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    Pros- People are genuinely nice
    - Young employees
    - Managing Directors are very accessible
    - The company is growing very fast and it is an exciting time to be there

    Cons- For a consulting firm, they don't do much consulting
    - Internal Audit work is very dry, repetitive, and arduous
    - Leadership suggests that you be open about your work preferences, but they do not appreciate it when you do this
    - Review process needs to be fixed

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open with recruits, your company does not have much consulting work in some regions, let them know this before they sign on full time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good first job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    Proswork/life balance, work culture (very young and fun), training (one of the best training programs), mentor program, opportunity for a lot of responsibility on projects, professional growth

    Consmanagement visibility (open door policy, but you have to seek them out), type of work (audit can get somewhat tedious and boring)

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to interact with co-workers of all levels both in and outside of work. Also, be more aggressive on the types of projects to get (seems to be heavily audit-focused)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's good for your first year out of college

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsWork/life balance, first year starting pay (but NOT raises!), laid-back peeps, friendly culture.

    Consbasically just an audit firm. work is very routine and mind-numbing after your first few projects. This is not really a consulting firm as much as it is an outsourced internal audit and finance/accounting service firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing...your business model works well for everyone who doesn't want to jump on the crazy Big 4 bandwagon, but there's a reason why your top talents are leaving--there's essentially no defined path to get to the top and because the MDs and directors aren't forced to retire like they did at Andersen, you can be stuck at senior manager and senior consultants for a while.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
