Current Employee - Product Specialist in Lake Oswego, OR

I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Good technical and consulting training for recent college graduates
- Learn the corporate ropes and work with a large amount of well knows clients through the US
- The PTO is comparable to most companies
- Fun culture, lots of team events

Cons

- Many of the employees become team leads and supervisors quickly. This causes micromanagement and competition so everyone can justify their positions
- This is not a place for an experienced hire to work, the policies are built around teaching college students
- The amount of PTO is decent, the way it's distributed (rolling) is terrible and it never increases no matter how long you have worked there
- Management doesn't listen to the employees, they have moved the company into a declining position in the market

    Current Employee - Document Review Attorney in New York, NY

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
