What Graduates Say About Them
  • My co-workers have been great. Senior staff are willing to teach and help upskill me. The culture is great as I personally find a nice balance of personal/ professional.
  • The best thing about working at Protiviti is the tremendous support and camaraderie that is present among the team. Protiviti is an enabler for innovation, excellence, and most importantly, curiosity. There is no such thing as a bad question, and my team has helped me achieve my goals in an extraordinary manner. Moreover, this inclusivity is shown in the genuine connections that I have formed already, and the compassion that each one of my co-workers shows one another. I truly believe that working for Protiviti is like working in a tight-knit and close team, with this being not only a national office but an international office too - which opens the door for many more opportunities and connections.
  • The exposure to both private and government clients and being in a smaller team allows you to have more responsibility/be more involved at a junior level. I also think our workplace is unique in that we have the ability as junior staff to develop a strong rapport with and work closely or directly with Directors etc. This has been a great learning experience.
  • Protiviti's culture is what sets it apart from other workplaces. As a grad, you get opportunities to take on challenges and responsibilities that you wouldn't get elsewhere due to the firm's size. The management really cares about employees' well-being, career growth, and goals. This is seen in the work-life balance, career advisor program, and active role that even Managing Directors take in supporting grads to pursue areas of interest and passion.
  • The best thing about Protiviti is the people and the culture! I joined Protiviti as a graduate and the company really stood out to me throughout the recruitment process as all the staff involved were so friendly and helpful. I felt very welcomed once I started with Protiviti and felt comfortable approaching colleagues for help and for a chat - even the most senior staff members.
  • The global nature of the company makes it difficult to participate in events and projects run in other countries. Eg. Sustainability Club events run in an American timezone - this is not the companies fault but rather the price of living in Australia
  • The worst thing is the size of the branch. I would love to see the size of the office continue to grow and see more people enjoy working at this company.
  • Sometimes you are given projects that may not align with your solution or interests. Although it is good to develop skills in multiple areas, and with multiple different stakeholders it can limit some progression if you are booked for projects that aren't within your solution or may not align with your interests/passions
  • This is not Protiviti specific, it is great to work at a global company, however, one disadvantage to this is that global calls and groups often have meetings and workshops at odd times for the AEDT/AEST timezone eg. 3.00 am
  • If I really had to choose, I would say the pay but I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else as the work culture and the work-life balance that I get at Protiviti is not offered by any other company.
