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

    Pros

    They are willing to work with you to create great work life balance. You have flexibility and ability to create your own career path.

    Cons

    You do not always have full control over the type of client or work you do, especially if you are in a less senior position. This is not really a con, but just a note that you have to be flexible to contribute to the overall success of the company.

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

    Pros

    Mid size consulting firm so you know every one. Feels like it would provide visibility but it act reversely at Protiviti. If people know you they have a perception about you which never changes.

    Cons

    Protiviti is a mid size consulting firm with about 5000 employees.
    - Not too many clients which means bench time for employees which means hit on your bonus check
    - Very high politics with limited opportunity to grow within
    - Salary is not par with other consulting firms
    - High attrition with management not making too much effort to retain employees
    -Benefits are alright. Nothing exceptional
    - Bonus structure is also okay.

    Advice to Management

    - Let people internally grow
    - Stop making false promises and then changing your words
    - Pay people what they deserve. If you don't then people tend to leave
    - Appreciate people more often
    - Stop judging people by their faults and ignoring million good v/s 1 wrong

    I have been working at Protiviti as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and work. An amazing place to start a career without a doubt.
    Amazing Internship program, they definitely spoil their interns and their recruitment team is probably the best across the industry.
    The whole company achieves a very good balance of professional communication and fun work environment.
    The "Intern challenge" is quite fun and informative.

    Cons

    Protiviti is a mid-sized consultancy, projects are normally smaller in scope and revenue.
    The travel opportunities are less than in bigger consultancies.
    About 60% of their work is SOX/Audit related.

    I have been working at Protiviti full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -CULTURE. Hands down best and most important part. My peers are my actual friends who I love to hang out with outside of work.
    -Competitive salary
    -Work life balance. Especially compared to the Big 4, Protiviti puts a huge, noticeable emphasis work life balance and ensures you have time to do other things in life besides work all the time! For example, you start out with 21 days off a year, which is significantly more than most companies.
    -Flexibility. No one is really stuck in one place, if you don't like the work you are doing, it is easy to move around and try new clients and sectors.

    Cons

    Sometimes, you may get stuck with client work that is unfulfilling. But, the best part of this job is you will not be stuck there forever, and you will gain experience working with things you may not love.

    Advice to Management

    Continue striving to listen to your employees and tailor the client work towards what people want to work with!

    Pros

    I've been a professional for a very long time, been with many other companies and I have to say that Protiviti, by far, is the best place I've worked for hands down. The work culture is amazing, they pride themselves on their employees and their clients and that shines through the bleakness of corporate life... just look at how many awards they have earned for best company to work for not only nationally but regionally and locally.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be difficult to find someone for a specific duty but the structure of the company is set in such a way that it's not really a hindrance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path that is currently being traveled
