    Pros

    Good work/life balance for the most part. Doesn't require me to come in to the office

    Cons

    Did not put me on the type of work I was hired to do. Still haven't moved me over to that type of work after repeated touchpoints with managers. Seems more focused on filling holes rather than putting the right people in the right place.

    It's okay if you get lucky with a good manager/client but its a coin-toss

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They offered a hybrid option, webinars on tools or investing, certification sponsorship, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    You don't get a direct manager so it could be good for two weeks with one team/client and then 5 months with a bad manager/client. You have to get lucky because talent management is poorly structured and it is common to be severely overscheduled or under scheduled which hurts your bonus even if it us out of your control. Pay is not competitive compared to other consulting firms

    Pros

    Great certification program and a great protiviti university with access to various courses. A great team environment in regards to togetherness. They have lots of activities and l think it helps that you are tide to an office enabling you to network properly with others. Decent benefits and CTO. Great working approach on leading a diversity iniative. They have a small reimbursement fee that you can use for internet or phone. There sabbatical program is great as well as the exchange to go live abroad. Their paternity and maternity leave is decent. Looking at career opportunties are pretty good from what l saw as there is no time limit for the next promotion.Quick interview process. You do alot more sourcing which sharpens your skills.

    Cons

    Well do not take the role if you are making a change in industry or/its your first time recruiting heavily for some new titles. There is no real training or onboarding. the expectation is you "should" already know. They don't have an organized process and don't take the time to explain what it is they have.Not enough recruiter seats so you are left using an outdated ATS(Yello). Yello is great for campus, but not experienced. Everyone is pinpointed to different people when questions are asked as its bothersome to ask management. You are assigned a career advisor and l do not understand why? The person l was assigned l met starting after onboarding to only find out she was my manager. l recall making a mistake and the response was "where is the disconnect" clearly that should have been a coachable moment. No diversity in my group except for myself and one asian girl. You can't say your overwhelm and can't be to slow either (even when its your first month there) as l was told that l was hired to be a "senior" and should know this by now. They will not hire anyone that has done contract , but depending on where the diverse number is needed then they make exceptions. The approval process takes forever , its everyone and god that must get this process approved. They post a ton of positions and have supposed requirements , but they aren't used. The recruiters have to go in and clean up these reports. You have to make sure you are always submitting candidates , yet you are doing more preliminary interviews and those don't count. Yet it complicates things when you don't pay and you can't sponsor. They claim this is a coachable and teachable environment, please DO NOT leave your job if you think that. also do not ask bosses for feedback, they barely will give you viable amd helpful feedback. You rather go get fed to the wolves in that case
