    I have been working at Protiviti full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Unlike other major consulting firms, Protiviti leadership does not function on a cut-throat mentality but rather focuses on nurturing young talent. - Career and Executive advisors serve as guiding pillars that not only advocate on your behalf but insure you are interested in the type of projects assigned to you.

    Cons

    - Generally, you experience is depending on the engagement MD and managers which can be tricky depending on who you are working it. - Some consulting projects can give you the feel of 'baptism by fire' as junior consultants can move between different solutions which can be hectic.

    Advice to Management

    While Protiviti leadership puts emphasis on retaining consultant's and Senior consultants by keeping the chargeable, it would be helpful to keep them focused on their respective solutions. Sometime it can feel like you are working with folks who can be labeled as jack of all trades, master of none.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Protiviti full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Full independence from opportunity identification to project delivery. They expect you to get business & deliver them too, making the Managers and above designations redundant.

    Cons

    Biased unethical management. Performance is solely based on hours spent in smoking breaks with Managers and above. Total smoking break in a day is generally 4-5 hours. Unsure of their service offerings, even bid for engineering consultancy opportunities while having no competence in the same. No leadership and support from Directors / Managers. Senseless copy paste experts. Late payment of yearly bonus (generally 6 months after appraisal). They recover or don't pay bonus if you leave between April to June.
