Got an interview scheduled with Protiviti. What's the heirarchy in Protiviti, what level in EY equates to a director there and how good is their IT advisory practice?

they wont flatten. those in between levels are made up by HR/execs to give a sense of accomplishment and keep people


I feel hierarchies are archaic in today’s world. Consulting firms should flatten further


We are not an Indian company - we are a spin-off of Arthur Andersen. Most of the executive team is still OG from Andersen. The culture is incredibly chill compared to big 4. expectations are also a lot lower but that means it’s easy to shine if you’re used to the big 4 pace. Projects are also much smaller and shorter than you may be accustomed to.


Too lazy to change my title on FB - I am a manager here at Protiviti and I would say the expectations of an SM at Protiviti are equivalent to the Manager level at Accenture. If I was you I would bargain for an associate director role here if you’re an experienced SM.


Hi...I came from Accenture so I can compare to that. It’s the same as Accenture’s hierarchy but there are a lot more levels between senior manager and managing director. Consultant >senior consultant > manager > SM > associate director > director > managing director. are you a director at EY?

@SC1 I am a senior manager at EY. How do you find the work culture?

The culture is very laidback but some people also say it’s pretty “fratty” because it’s so laid back. Some people work very hard but sometimes there are people who don’t put in their fair share

Isn’t that an Indian company ?

Thanks everyone this was helpful

Any and all advice needed. I haven’t been part of ACN long (2 years) but I’m realizing it’s not for me. I have my own company that is doing well and I am looking to pursue another personal business venture. I’ve been interviewing with other companies (Apple, Facebook) but I genuinely would only want to work for those companies for the name and status that comes with it. I really want to quit ACN and focus on my business ventures but wasn’t sure if it’s the right move. Entrepreneurship is tough!

Hi 🌈 🐠
I have a first round with McKinsey next week (lateral - BA) and was wondering if anyone at the firm/also interviewing had any advice or would be open to doing a case interview with me.

The recruiter asked if I was interested in interviewing a few days ago and I want to take this seriously but don’t have a large consulting network outside of Accenture to lean on.

Thank you in advance for any advice or offers to practice!


I have an group presentation/interview next week with about 10 people at the same time. I’m working on the presentation portion but could use some suggestions of questions to ask in a group setting. They’re giving me 5-10 minutes to ask the team questions. Everyone from people in my position to the CEO will be on the call. At this point I’ve already interviewed with some of these people separately and asked the really specific questions. Any ideas what kind of questions I should ask?

What are people’s feelings on continuing to interview after accepting a role? I accepted a 3-month contract role, that has the chance of going full-time. Now another company wants to interview and it would be a 12+ month contract and pays $10 more per hour than first contract.

Just a vent - we weaned my daughter off her binky a few months ago. All four of her first molars are coming in at the same time and the only way she’d go to sleep at night is with the binky. We’ve been letting her sleep with it again because she usually spits it out after she falls asleep anyways. Sometimes she sees it in the morning and pops it in. We take it out before she leaves for daycare. I posted a pic of her this AM and she happened to have the binky in.
