Pros

Overall it was a good place to work when I was there. Can't speak to current enviornment but generally speaking management listened to my needs and helped me develop. Clients were difficult at times as they are in any organization and one faces the same challenges that one would in any consulting enviornment.

Cons

Hours were pretty long at time, and some of the work mundane. But nothing out of the ordinary. Sometimes it was difficult for new employees to assimilate into the environment, especially to initially land clients. However, I suppose the top performers were able to make it through this difficulty.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employees and continue to expand services.

    Pros

    Protiviti is a great place to launch a career. New hires out of college have many opportunities to experience different industries and projects. Seniors and managers are also very willing to help develop core business skills to new clients.

    Cons

    Protiviti like most companies is struggling with the current economic conditions. Their new branding and solution focus is probably too little too late. Lets face it, Protiviti is known for internal audit, SOX and being former Andersen. It is unfortunate that they could not develop more annuity work from their former clients.

    Protiviti's efforts to reduce costs has caused many of their top talent to leave or plan to leave. The current morale is low. Salaries are frozen and bonuses have been cancelled. People are now working hard to keep their jobs. In the long run this mentality will cause people to find jobs with more stability.

    In the long run, Protiviti should better define themselves in the marketplace and focus on the areas where they have top talent and can develop more annuity work.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees hard work. Develop a company wide go to market plan for your solutions. Currently sales strategies are disjointed. Too much time is spent planning sales campaigns with minimal calls to new clients. At times it appears that senior mangagement is not comfortable calling new targets and instead hopes that their previous relationships will win them future work.
