Protiviti

I’m currently an intern at Protiviti and debating whether or not to accept a return offer if given one. I’ve enjoyed my experience here but I don’t know if I should explore other opportunities in terms of career growth and pay (i.e. big 4, Accenture, etc.) Any advice would be appreciated!

    Great Place to Work!

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people at Protiviti make it an awesome place to work. The work life balance is pretty good for a consulting firm. Management really tries to make sure you are happy. Great benefits. A lot of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Compensation. Sometimes stuck on bad projects.

    A Solid Career in a Growing Company

    Apr 20, 2021 - Managing Director in Cincinnati, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Although $1 bln+ company, still enough opportunities to do "new" things (e.g. evolving service offerings) that there is entrepreneurial experience - Company has a strong sense of culture that it seems to be genuinely concerned in maintaining - It's a consulting firm, but not one that has built itself on the assumption of grinding staff personnel at 50+ hour weeks; you'll work hard, but it's fair and there are real opportunities to focus on you when needed

    Cons

    - As organization has grown, you "feel" the transition from a smaller firm to a larger firm and are sometimes concerned about the culture that has made it special getting lost - As the organization transitions to expand into more managed service opportunities (i.e. larger and more sustainable revenue), some of the core business of the past feels left behind

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great career advancement with a job culture you won't get at any other consulting firm. Protiviti truly cares about their employees and has great benefits! Very collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Salary for operations employees is a bit low for the amount of work they do.

    Great Place to work.

    Nov 13, 2020 - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company genuinely cares about its employees. Even during these uncertain times, the company has been open and transparent and kept employees well appraised on the direction of the company. The leadership team is impeccable and sets a good example for the rest of the company. They are not your typical consulting firm but definitely headed in the right direction. It's a company you will always be proud to have worked for and where you can feel secure in your job as long as you are doing your best.

    Cons

    It's a lot harder for experienced hires to adapt to the culture. Tip would be to try and get involved in as much as you can as soon as you arrive.

    Short Review

    Aug 28, 2020 - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Smaller consulting firm with reach in various industries and parts of the country/globe.

    Cons

    Some groups are newer and smaller -facing a lot of internal politics and thrash related to scaling up. Be aware of how large of a team you'll be joining - as you might be limited to opportunities/limited career growth based on work they win.

    Lots of Potential

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Very friendly people, great culture, open policies, and great communication from all levels in the company.

    Cons

    Not solely a management consulting firm, lots of other work they don't tell you about. Being a new consultant, you're in a foundations program, which nearly all foundations consultants don't understand.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Hours are very reasonable for consulting firm. - Culture is nurturing and focused on employee career growth. - Many ways to get involved at the company outside of day to day work. - Pay is more competitive with other firms. - Benefits have drastically improved (great paternity leave, increased 401k match, more CTO, among others). - Management is focused on growth and employee retention.

    Cons

    - Work isn't always interesting. - You may travel more than you prefer.

    Innovation, Integrity and Inclusion!

    Oct 22, 2019 - Director in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great culture. Also, Protiviti dedicates significant time, resources and money towards innovation and management and staff have high integrity. They listen to the client and want to do what is best for them. Not easy to find in a consulting firm.

    Cons

    Protiviti recognizes that they need to do a better job in hiring diverse talent, especially in management. They are talking significant actions - for example, Protiviti has a senior executive who is solely dedicated to diversity and inclusion (and separate and distinct from the Chief of HR). Further, they are putting efforts towards hiring more women, including women who have taken time off during their career.

    Amazing culture & people!

    Oct 20, 2019 - Senior Manager in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Protiviti truly has a special culture. This is evident by the number of people that have been here for well over 10 years. It's a large consulting firm in some ways but still maintains a "family" culture. Leadership really cares about the people and it shows!!

    Cons

    No cons really. I mean, no company or job is perfect and there are definitely times of year that are crazy busy but all and all, it's a great company to be a part of!!

    Consulting that values You

    Oct 18, 2019 - Consultant I in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Work is interesting - They have really good people, and I'm not just saying this. There is real community here and the team aspect to each engagement is evident. - The amount you get paid for the amount you work is better than at Big 4 companies. As someone who has worked at Big 4, you might find yourself working 60 hours a week, but only getting paid marginally more than at Protiviti. At Protiviti, you will work between 40-50 hours a week (depending on which solution you are in) with an off chance of working 60 hours once or twice a year. - Typical consulting firm travel perks, fun events to build office culture on Fridays - Access to upper management is much better at Protiviti than other consulting firms - This is the kind of firm you don't want to just hop in for two years and go somewhere else. It's the kind of lifestyle, work environment, and career that you want to stick with because it is just that good. - People actually take majority of their CTO/PTO (Choice/paid time off) and it isn't looked down upon, it's actually encouraged.

    Cons

    - Benefits/pay isn't as boisterous as the Big 4's - I'm willing to sacrifice a higher salary at either Big 4 or BCG, McKinsey, etc. for the work/life balance, people, and company that genuinely cares. So pay may be marginally less, but everything else for me personally makes up for it. - Other than that, I don't see why you'd want to work anywhere else besides Protiviti!
