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

    Pros

    The people you typically work with are good people and will take the time out of their day to help with what ever is needed. Most of management is open and approachable to talk with. Company culture of elevating those within the ranks is good.

    Cons

    Compensation but that could be said about any job. Benefits could be better. Management knows this.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee wants to explore a different solution, make the effort to let them try and support them.

    I have been working at Protiviti full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company still has feeling of being "newer" - therefore opportunity to make difference, get involved with new evolving products/services; management culture is really one of inclusion and making people feel comfortable with voicing opinions

    Cons

    Like any consulting gig, work/life balance is a challenge. It is what you make of it and how you manage it. Company isn't going to bend over backwards to change that because it's the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Work to ensure culture is established and maintained in regional offices the same as the major offices.

    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great variety of experience, Motivated, bright, and fun people at the consultant/senior conultant and Director and above levels

    Cons

    The range of projects you get on can be very random, Middle management often feels complacent, Lack of clarity around the promotion cycle

    Advice to Management

    Leadership could be more transparent about the decision making process behind promotions. Lack of specific development feedback can lead to consultants/senior consultants being unsure of what they need to work on to be promoted.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, decent comp and benefits, and great people and company culture.

    Cons

    Not too widely recognized in the consulting industry. Mostly known for internal audit rather than other consulting services.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on experienced hire recruiting more. It is just as important as campus recruiting yet doesn't get enough attention.

    The legacy employees from Andersen get preferential treatment.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy having the opportunity to work at different companies with great people. The small size of the company makes it great for consistency amongst projects, meaning a real team environment has been created.

    Cons

    Like most professional service firms, often times people get stuck on certain projects due to client needs. This sometimes happens on clients that aren't located in your market, forcing the employee to travel longer than anticipated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The transparency and accessibility of management is a main reason why people enjoy working at this company.
