I have been working at Huron Consulting Group as a contractor

Pros

Location of the office on Wall Street; Not a lot of overtime work; Company culture itself seems pleasant. Company gets good clients and interesting projects.

Cons

"Managers" have zero management skills. Unbelievable micro-managing, extreme lack of professionalism among one or two 'managers' who have sudden moments of pure tyranny. One manager treats workers like 5 year olds, does not know how to talk to people, and makes for a tense environment that slows productivity. Absolutely no support or guidance, No idea how such people actually get hired-does not seem to fit with Huron's culture. Also, no room for advancement or permanency, and thus, no motivation to put up with the nonsense or to do a good job.

Advice to Management

Look closely and then replace some of those in management in the NY legal consulting team that handles document review because they alienate the true professionals who can give their best to your company, even if on a temporary basis, and instead, attract the less skilled just because they are complacent.

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

    Pros

    Decent PTO benefits - if you're ever able to take any.

    Cons

    Apathetic and complacent culture on the corporate side (in one particular practice area, at least). Leadership is self-righteous and self-serving. The majority of them talk out of both sides of their mouths. Really a depressing work environment.

    Advice to Management

    My suggestion would be to clean house. I don't know if I encountered a single member of leadership that knew what they were doing, made any significant improvements, or even cared about what they did or who they managed. Start caring about your people! They are your most important assets! It says a lot about a company when a significant number of your operations staff leaves within a very short time frame. I find it amusing that one of their values is "integrity," but the only people that possess any integrity are the ones they are letting walk out the door.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance; excellent PTO package

    Cons

    Culture is one of everyone telling on everyone else. Matrix organization; poor pay for corp employees; expensive healthcare premiums; performance mgmt is really based more on what others think of you than how well you perform your job; low increases if you get one!

    Advice to Management

    Do something abt the culture, corp employees work very hard, they deserve to be treated more like part of the org, than just the red-headed step child because they are not revenue generators!
