Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Chicago, IL

I worked at Huron Consulting Group

Pros

+Majority of people (not all) are intelligent and good to work with
+Exposure to various industries and rules/regs
+Good IT support
+Good benefits

Cons

-Culture can vary widely between practices - from frat house to hipsters. Usually more frat than hip.
-Management competency varies widely at senior levels
-Too much emphasis on facetime with client, resulting in significant work travel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Establish open 2-way feedback channels between managers and non-managers.
Offer more training opportunities. Expensing a book on programming doesn't count as training.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group

    Pros

    The people are the best reason. We have great benefits and management really cares about the development of its people.

    Cons

    Travel can be difficult and hours sometimes long. The company is still growing and developing new policies and proceedures which can change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest that management continues to work on people initiatives and the committment to developing a strong culture to drive growth.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group

    Pros

    easy locations to work from
    competence of corporate staff
    collegial spirit
    great parties for consultants where Huron picks up the tab

    Cons

    incompetence of corporate leadership
    lack of direction
    complacency as a strategy rather than accountability and direction
    difficulty in understanding how to impact the business
    lack of career development unless you are a certain gender and race

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think about how to strategically execute
    spend to grow - the great companies find ways to spend to foster rapid growth instead of reducing spend to cover up short-term misses
