    Pros

    -Travel bonus
    -Benefits
    - Some good people

    Cons

    - 90% of Huron healthcare are new graduates with little to no healthcare experience. The ones with healthcare experience, gained it only through working at Huron. As any healthcare professional will tell you, this is limited
    - Gossip culture: There is a lack of trust amongst employees, because everyone is trying to get ahead. Therefore, anything you say and do, will be used against you, especially during review time.
    - No true development: The mark of a learning organization, is to help people learn from their mistakes. Not at Huron, if you make a mistake, it will be used against you for years. It is often cloaked as "feedback"
    - The solutions are not vetted. People cling onto methodology, which stunts creativity.
    - NO respect for clinical personnel. Clinicians or people with previous management experience outside of healthcare are not valued.
    - If you are experienced, the only way to get ahead is to kiss a lot of butt.
    - They sell more work, than the manpower to complete a quality project. Due to turnover, more new people are being placed on projects. This decrease the quality of the work being produced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is all hat and no cattle. Create a true value add for your client. Look at your exit interviews.
