    I have been working at Protiviti full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture really makes the company. Exposure to leadership is great. Business development opportunities are good. Work life balance is good for “consulting”. Sabbatical program is an awesome perk.

    Cons

    The work/projects are hit and miss depending on what your interests are. Lots of audit work and management is sometimes unclear about that aspect. Benefit structure is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Increase 401k match and overall benefit structure. Be more clear with new hires on the amount of audit work vs consulting work

    Pros

    Lots of growth opportunity
    Talented team
    Great clients
    Very supportive of family and diversity in work place

    Cons

    I would not say these are not cons for me, but could be a con for some people - there are times when we have to put in more hours to meet a deadline on a project. However, we work together as a team to get it done quicker and more efficiently so overall it is a positive.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance with flexible hours.
    Management is understanding and wants individuals to succeed.
    Management tries its hardest to take into consideration employee wants while trying to balance business needs.
    Great mentor program.
    All employees are great to work with and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Travel is sometimes required.
    Benefits are not as great as I would hope for (higher health insurance cost, lower 401k match with matching only at the end of the year).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to what employees want, and watch for trends in what is being offered by other companies in the area.

    I worked at Protiviti full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility and autonomy as a Senior. If you’re trusted you’ll be given opportunities to run the show. Upper Management is mostly ex big 4

    Cons

    Too much of a SOX shop at the time. Hours can get brutal during busy season. High turnover / staffing politics was always a problem
