    I have been working at Protiviti full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People at Protiviti take care of each other. There is a genuine interest in making sure that Protiviti is a great place to work. I see the company and the leaders really pushing for maximum relevance in the market and with our clients. Lots of emphasis on people, teamwork, recognition, celebrations. Management communicates about what is going on. Base pay feels about right, and the bonus awards are incredible if you earn it. If you earn it, they will pay it. Good vacation benefit.

    Cons

    I wish health benefits were a little cheaper. They are ok, and Protiviti puts money into my HSA though!

    Advice to Management

    I like the assertiveness on pushing ourselves to grow in new, interesting areas! Keep putting people first!

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Protiviti (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Everyone was extremely friendly throughout the entire process. I got my first round interview from my school's career fair and interviewed the next day. The interview is split into behavioral and case. The behavioral felt much more like a conversation than an interview, which I really appreciated. The case was very basic, centered mostly on controls. They gave me a process map the night before, so I spent 30 minutes analyzing it before going in. The case is also pretty guided, so if you're missing something or not exactly on the right track, they will point you in the right direction. The final round interviews were in the office. All candidates stayed in a hotel and went to a dinner the night before the office visit. The second day is very laid-back and fun. I got to meet many other potential interns and other employees. Near the end I had a 15 minute conversation with a Managing Director, which again was very much like a convesation.
