    I worked at Protiviti full-time

    Pros

    The company culture seems excellent. The company seems to be growing at a rapid pace, so much so, that there is competitive seating in the office. They are expanding their offerings to better compete with other larger consulting firms. Also, they seem to invest a lot in their employees by providing extensive training, such as the consulting challenge.

    Cons

    My Pros all say "seemed" in them, because I got hired several months ago and never actually got to start work. I was extended an offer in November and was promised by my new manager that they would start me sometime around January/February although the "official start date" was March. When March rolled around and I inquired about why I didn't have a set start date yet, I was informed that my start date was being deferred to sometime between July and September because client acquisition was slow for the team that I was supposed to be working on. I talked to everyone I possibly could to get this changed because, as a fresh college grad, I didn't have many resources to survive on and I was counting on this new job (which I let them know numerous times). I tried to change teams, requested my signing bonus early, tried to work with Robert Half for some temporary work, but Protiviti wouldn't budge and Robert Half didn't work out. I eventually ended up finding another job.

    BEFORE YOU ACCEPT YOUR FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT OFFER, I URGE YOU TO GET YOUR START DATE IN WRITING.

    Deferring my start date had a significant impact on my life and I would really hate for that to happen to someone else.

    Aside from that, I would advise taking what Protiviti employees say about booming client acquisition with a grain of salt, especially since they get nice big referral bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Remove "mutually agreed upon start date" from your employment contract. Plan better for new hires. Be more honest about the state of the company when campus recruiting. Also, deferring someones employment for months has a serious financial impact on the deferred party. If this happens again in the future, I would advise providing some sort of reimbursement or assistance to deferred individuals. This would certainly help retention and reduce negative impacts on company reputation.

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

    Pros

    -The best work/life balance of any consulting firm
    -Designed to help you grow as a person
    -Incredible company culture

    Cons

    -People not in the audit group still sometimes get pulled on to audit projects
    -Sleezy practices for former intern campus hires. Exploding offers (you get 2 weeks to respond so you can't apply elsewhere), compensation at the bare minimum of the market.

    The reality is that compared to say the big 4 or Accenture, on an hour per hour basis you're paid relatively close. And the work life balance makes it worth it. But the pay is much lower than other options.

    Advice to Management

    I understand why the compensation is low, but it's low on all fronts. Make the 401K match more reasonable, make vacation time more reasonable, and stop the dirty practices with recruiting interns. It's an amazing company but a lot of people start off on the wrong foot.
