    Pros

    Work life balance is variable depending on your group; here in Healthcare you can vary from 40-60 easily

    Cons

    Bad track record of hiring experienced people. They only nail it about 1/4 the time, and they fail miserably 1/4 the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop yourselves as leaders. Invest in more training for experienced hires when necessary, and be more selective of those you choose.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, Huron (Healthcare division) was a friendly place to work.

    Cons

    My supervisor did not have effective training skills and I was left having to figure things out for myself and attempting to read people's minds - because what was communicated was contrary to what was actually wanted.

    In addition, I was kept on as a full-time temp for nine months - waiting and expecting to be hired the whole time, while they expected me to work as if I were on staff. About seven months in, an additional temp was brought on board whom I had to help train. Then at nine months I was let go and discovered that I had been training my replacement temp.

    It was a very frustrating experience being led on for nine months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make someone a supervisor unless they have proven training and communication skills.

    Pros

    Smart people. Lots of training.

    Cons

    If you are not part of the "in" crowd, you will be targeted to take the downfall for others.

    Pros

    Huron has great benefits and employs a lot of wonderful people. They have a flexible model that allows people to work from home. Their time off policy is robust if you choose to use it- otherwise you do not get paid for any time when you leave the company..

    Cons

    Huron is still working on figuring out who they want to be when they grow up. When they figure it out, and get the right leadership in place, I think they will do extraordinarily well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A clear, consistent, voice and vision would make a world of difference to the employees who are trying to carry it forward.

    Pros

    Some of the people make work enjoyable and relative to Big 4 consulting, you have much more flexibility.

    Cons

    Life Sciences Senior Leadership does not lead and most definitely does not work together...be prepared to deal with politics and games constantly.

    Pros

    Working in different hospitals and team members. Great pay for a 60+ hour week. Great for college students with no knowledge of how a hospital works or the patient relationship.

    Cons

    Coming into Huron Consulting, leave any experience/knowledge behind and begin to learn something brand new. Past experience will not be valued and seen as a threat when recommending what was successful once... Process improvement is only based Hurons best practices and methodology, don't challenge it. It's a "club" work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better way to bring the experienced hires into the consulting role. I was so lost with no help from my management.

    Respectable. Very conservative. Slow growing. A good place to develop some early consulting skills.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Friendly people.

    Cons

    Out of the box thinking happens occasionally, but don't expect much execution on those ideas. Get your management consulting experience here and move on to a bigger and better company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mark Hussey should run this company...Very intelligent and insightful person.
