    I have been working at Protiviti for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly flexible. Management is always trying to balance competing internal, client, and life priorities. People are generally friendly and civil and there is no cutthroat culture or leaving people behind. People put getting work done over personal grievances. Everybody has a voice.

    Cons

    Hard to tell what Canadian projects will be on the map because everything is routed through the US, including mandatory trainings for full-time employees. Even Canadian contractors have recruiters in the US, which seems inefficient when Robert Half has plenty of offices in Canada. Not sure what the future holds or steadiness of work.

    Advice to Management

    Empower and invest in local talent to grow Canadian consulting practices and expand into other industries.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible, non-hierarchical, plenty of opportunities to apply yourself, varied projects. Management is very supportive and listens to employee feedback. Great opportunity to distinguish yourself and learn. Very inclusive environment. Great office locations.

    Cons

    Since the firm is small, you may not always get along with everyone and will still end up working with them. You just need to learn to manage the relationship better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Protiviti full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -good benefits, way better pay than big 4 or other accounting firms. -good hours/work life balance. Sense of pride in company. -Strong growth, everyone working together to drive the company forward and better. It's a positive environment

    Cons

    -in smaller offices, often disorganized and understaffed. For example, Canadians are often staffed for long-term at the same client. There's no work variety or interesting clients. You know your clients more than you know your own Protiviti teammates. That's how bad it is. -Limited social opportunities in Canada. Everyone is always out at clients for a long time. No one even knows each other and small cliques form.... Overall Protiviti is nice, but definitely not at the smaller offices.

    Advice to Management

    -Should hire enough people and ENSURE your consultants get a variety of work (as you promised in the Foundations program, which is not enforced very well). -Should ask for feedback and actually care about how consultants are feeling at the clients. -cap a max time or budget for the same consultant to be at a client - there are people who literally work at the same client for entire year everyday 365 days, why... shouldn't they just work for the client instead then?
