    Pros

    Incredible Opportunity to learn about different aspects of business. Great Company work culture. Supportive atmosphere and tools to grow are available to those seek them out.

    Cons

    Quick growth and skill acquisition leads people to feel overvalued.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of turnover but fight to keep the ones that are worth it!

    I worked at Profit Recovery Partners full-time

    Pros

    All the unique personalities at prp are awesome and the experience you gain is very valuable. As an analyst, you can realistically double your starting prp salary within 2-3 years elsewhere if you take work seriously and put in the effort to learn. The work environment can be fun and I've met people that I'll keep in contact with for a long time.

    Cons

    Work piles up as headcount decreases with little to no replacements.

    Advice to Management

    Mo money mo problems

  3. "Average"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Profit Recovery Partners full-time

      Pros

      You learn so much. Get a lot of opportunities to work with so many people. It's fast paced. You get to work with a lot of great companies (if you're on the client facing side).

      Cons

      Staffing is inadequate. Leaders don't listen. Moral is low. Bandwidths are max'ed out.

      Advice to Management

      Be proactive, not reactive. Staff for the growth you project, don't wait until everyone is drowning in work to hire.

      Pros

      - Good company to start

      Cons

      - Wasting paper (There will be no more trees)

      Advice to Management

      - The leader needs to know how to lead. (Please use numbers to make decisions not emotions and know your analysts) Every other Friday is an interesting Friday - Everyone’s Manager needs to calm down

      I worked at Profit Recovery Partners full-time

      Pros

      Those who want to take it upon themselves to grow and educate themselves, have that opporuntity here. Culture is fun in and out of office. Can be a director in three years if you do what your told and don't ask questions or question unethical decisions.

      Cons

      Where to start. Horrendous pay. Directors in place that have been with the company less than 3-4 years. Pitching huge companies to change to cheaper pens to save money. Everyone that has value leaves within a year. Long termers are PRP lifer's with no other company experience. Company will do anything to save a buck to bill on it. No true knowledge in certain areas- menatility is just throw out bids and achieve the lowest...

      I have been working at Profit Recovery Partners full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The executives at the company appreciate and recognize you for it if you take the time to really learn what the company does, and what its ethos is. The HR department is making a genuine effort to create a better culture for its rank and file staff (me), and it definitely has improved over time. The executive and HR staff definitely make it a point to recognize hard work and show in real time how our work impacts the...

      Cons

      Many reviews talk about the overtime hours expected—this is true, but only for certain departments. Compensation is also variable, based on meeting client deliverables, and this is true from the bottom all the way to the top of the company (it’s part of the company’s sales pitch). You will become a face in the crowd (and thus will not advance) if you do not make it a point to be motivated and committed to meeting your...

      Advice to Management

      Keep on your commitment to investing in staff morale. Staff will be more committed to meeting goals if they feel fully vested in and committed to the mission of the company. If the staff feels like you will invest in their professional development and support their ideas, they will invest their time and effort in you back.

      I have been working at Profit Recovery Partners full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I started at PRP straight out of college, as many PRP employees do. Upon starting at PRP, I realized that I would not be coasting through my career here. I was met with overtime hours within my first few days on the job and client exposure on my second day. PRP operates in a fast paced and crazy environment, but the directors and executives take notice of your successes throughout your projects. If you put your head down,...

      I have been working at Profit Recovery Partners full-time

      Pros

      At PRP, opportunities will almost always present themselves as challenges. There is never a dull day as projects will keep you on your toes. You get a lot of exposure here compared to working for larger companies where you are limited to your handful of assigned tasks. There is a lot of room for personal development due to the industry knowledge you pick up and the seasoned people you meet. Depending on which department...

      Cons

      PRP has a very fast-paced and somewhat demanding culture that may not be for those without a confident, can-do attitude. Depending on your level of attention to detail, work pace, project size, and some other factors, there could be expected and unexpected long hours involved. This is not a problem if you enjoy the work. Lastly, the default compensation is below market; however, management will hear your case if you have...

      Advice to Management

      PRP needs to compensate competitively to retain knowledge in the company and not lose talent. Some employees had left due to the feeling that they were undervalued.

      I worked at Profit Recovery Partners for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Learn a lot about multiple industries very quickly. you'll become an excel wizard and be able to work with a lot of different departments in the company. Super relaxed company culture where upper management and new hires quickly become good friends and are encouraged to bounce ideas off each other.

      Cons

      Pay is very poor, and benefits are non-existent. as an analyst you'll be doing the same thing over and over every day for the first 6 months. Turnover is very high due to poor pay and employee burnout

      Advice to Management

      Pay your employees! You are constantly losing great talent due to poor pay/benefits. You are spending too much money/time constantly training new people.
