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

    Pros

    - Co-workers are fun and caring.
    - Some of the work is interesting, and clients do benefit from some of the services.
    - Good training opportunities

    Cons

    - The way teams approach projects is archaic and leaves little opportunity for innovation or learning, especially if you are on the lower end of the hierarchy. A lot of what you do is detail-oriented work that is dictated to you from above. If you have an idea of how things may work better, don't count on anyone listening.
    - Lots of travel for most consulting positions; travel every week - Monday 7am through Thursday evening. This gets really old.
    - Definitely a "good old boys" feel for upper management. The hierarchical feel is very prominent as well-- not lots of open discussion between levels within the organization.
    - Definitely a stereotypical consultant vibe within the company-- "if you speak the lingo, people will think you know what you're talking about". This wasn't the case for everyone I came across, but was more prevalent that I liked. It made me feel bad to have the client paying for staff that were not prepared and did not provide quality work, but tried to give the impression that they did.
    - Pay and compensation is low compared to similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be open to new ideas, it's the only way your company will continue to grow.
    - Take a look at how you offer promotions and growth opportunities.
    - Encourage additional discussion between organizational levels- you'll likely learn a lot from those that are doing the day-to-day work.

    Pros

    Excellent people...everyone cares about you even outside of work
    Meaningful work...you are not selling a meaningless product, you are actually having an important impact

    Cons

    Hours can be long and be prepared for heavy travel
    Management can be obtuse
    Never give more than 2 weeks notice before leaving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
