I worked at Protiviti

Pros

Overall it was a good place to work when I was there. Can't speak to current enviornment but generally speaking management listened to my needs and helped me develop. Clients were difficult at times as they are in any organization and one faces the same challenges that one would in any consulting enviornment.

Cons

Hours were pretty long at time, and some of the work mundane. But nothing out of the ordinary. Sometimes it was difficult for new employees to assimilate into the environment, especially to initially land clients. However, I suppose the top performers were able to make it through this difficulty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to your employees and continue to expand services.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, good place to start a career. They have good training programs, but not great. Their system for knowledge sharing works pretty well, and the caliber of the majority of the staff is top notch, definitely learn a lot from them with regard to the industry and how to go about engaging clientele.

    Cons

    Not all management are qualified to be management level. There should be more time put towards training programs to get staff more knowledgeable in the different fields of their interest, instead of just being assigned the same type of projects (unless that's the staff's preference). Shadowing doesn't really take place as much as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't just deflect and delegate, show how to do it as well

    I have been working at Protiviti

    Pros

    Clients are great to work with, most of the time. Leadership is trying but the uncertain times make it impossible to figure out what direction to go.

    Cons

    Uncertain future. The culture of cooperation, teaming, etc. is dissolving as people go in to the mode of self preservation. There are still a lot of people who want to do the right thing though and I think they'll survive but have to reinvent again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure people aren't just talking the talk. Everyone on board with teaming, but many not acting that way. Look to some of the smaller offices for good leaders. They built things from scratch. Don't assume all ot the good talent has to be sitting in a big office some where.
