    Pros

    The people are great to work with and the schedule is always flexible for time off.

    Cons

    Politics. Benefits. Culture leaning towards "Big 4." Incompetent Senior Management. Unprofessional layoff process. Decisions to layoff resources that the Company has invested in, while continuing to hire new resources to maintain a positive brand image to colleges / universities nationwide.

    Advice to Management

    Although the Company has attempted to make strides to brand itself as a diverse consulting services firm and market itself in the direction of offering various services on top of internal audit and SOA 404 work, the reality is that the Company simply does not have the competent and "specialized" resources to achieve the image it is striving towards. Let's face it, roughly 70%, or more, of the work performed from the Consultant level up to the Associate Director / Director level has mainly been SOA 404 related. In the end, the Company's attempt to diversify its service line and brand itself as a "specialized" solutions consulting firm will eventually implode, as the type of work will simply be too overwhelming and complex for the current resources developed from within. As the common saying goes, "It is what it is," and it starts from the top.

    Pros

    Protiviti was an excellent place for me to start my career. They were very helpful with job transfers between offices, and I had many opportunities to work in different industries and with different job functions. There were a large number of opportunities for fast advancement and they provided a decent budget for training, certifications, and knowledge development.

    Cons

    Watch your back. They will cut jobs, seemingly at random and with little consideration for experience level and seniority at the company. There is very low job security. While there is a wide array of industries and types of work, there is a very low salary compensation and appreciation of your work. Bonuses are few and far between. Employees are worked long and hard, and projects are poorly managed, in that they often include insufficient personnel to staff engagements.

    Advice to Management

    It will be next to impossible for the company to survive the recession by cutting experienced workers. When the economy turns around, the company will not have the ability to meet demand, and those few workers that are left will have to bear that burden.
