Your Pay

Your pay
We provide you with competitive, fair, and equitable pay for your role and contributions. Pay is based on competitive market intelligence for your role and reflects your individual experience, skills, performance, and geographic work location. 

  • Competitive: We use market salary data collected from an exclusive group of consultancies, which include large-scale global firms, mid-sized firms, and specialty firms. We rely on this market data, and insights from our recruiting efforts, to construct our salary ranges and determine your individual placement within the salary range.  
  • Fair & Equitable: We continuously monitor your individual pay compared to your peers and we adjust our salary ranges and your individual pay to keep pace with market trends.  
  • Relevant: Your pay is correlated with the technical skills, industry knowledge, extensive work experience, specialized certifications, and the significant value you contribute.  
  • Location Preference: Our salary ranges are influenced by your work location. We take a flexible approach to assigning your work location with more than 30 Protiviti offices across the U.S.

Your variable bonus
Our approach is to be a market leader by offering a meaningful variable pay plan (Incentive Compensation Plan or ICP) for our salaried team members. For eligible participants, this plan is a valuable part of your total compensation package and can include cash and discretionary stock. The ICP is designed to reward your remarkable contributions to our firm’s success. Plan funding is based upon meeting Protiviti’s operating plan, and we are proud to often fund our plan at or above the target payout – due to the outstanding contributions of our employees!

  • Transparency: Using our technology platform, Consulting plan participants can check their progress toward plan metrics and targets and see year-end forecasted payouts. We also issue quarterly communications on our firm’s progress towards funding goals.

In addition to our formal variable pay plan, we offer other discretionary bonus opportunities throughout the year. 

Your certification bonus
Consultants and Senior Consultants can earn a $1,000 bonus for obtaining an approved professional certification.  This bonus reflects our commitment toward your development during the first few years of your professional career.  

Your candidate referrals
Through our employee referral bonus program, you can earn between $500 and $10,000 for successfully referring someone from your network to an open position.
