    I worked at Protiviti full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get a lot of exposure of different types of clients and industries. The people are great and very helpful.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard moving around between multiple clients. Also during peak times it tends to get very busy which makes it hard to balance personal time.

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

    Pros

    Great people (mostly)
    Culture is good
    Promotions done twice a year (mid-year and year-end)
    Work-life balance is good. I work no more than 40-45 hours a week

    Cons

    The work is dependent on the market (as is any consulting job)
    The work itself is not broad outside of audit (SOX, IT audits)
    Limited technical roles, outside of IT security testing.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt with newer forms of management and break away from old, traditional management styles.

    Advice to Management

    Bodies are expendable only to a finite degree. Pay attention to reasons people stay and reasons people leave. Oftentimes management does NOT act -- proactively or reactively -- to the ebb and flow of employee retention, which is quite troublesome. Promoting for the sake of promoting drives talent away, especially when the improper people get promoted. Analyze employee retention, and make changes in a timely manner to proactively correct issues.

    I worked at Protiviti full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good option for people who enjoy their work-life balance and limited travel. Most of the people there are also friendly.

    Cons

    Although they like to brand their practice to also include consulting, it's really more like an internal audit firm. Often campus hires are tagged as part of the technology consulting practice, but mostly were staffed on internal audit/SOX projects; mostly because there's not always enough consulting projects to go around.

    I'll give them credit for trying to expand their practice by adding true consulting lines of service, however they don't seem to have the background and experience to execute those types of projects. Many times they have a "we'll figure it out when we get there" attitude. People are then thrown into these projects and expected to execute the work with little to no guidance, and when it fails management accepts no responsibility. Essentially there's a mismatch between what they tell clients they can execute, and the needed knowledge and resources' ability to perform these projects.

    Advice to Management

    It really doesn't do anyone a favor to sell potential hires on promises that you know can't be delivered. Just be honest about what can actually offer to campus and experienced hires. That way it's all clear from the beginning and no one is disappointed.
