    They are all about working 24/7 and getting those numbers. Not people friendly.

    Pros

    Salary & great benefits - but when you broke it down to the hours I had to work, the salary wasn't worth it.

    Cons

    NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE. They own you. Work grinder environment. If you aren't working on three engagements and not involved in 15 work groups you are not doing enough. 70% of work force is just out of college. They are willing to work 24/7 and prolong their college life, only now they have money and can travel. Not a work environment for the seasoned professional. Huron is not interested in new ideas or improving. They are interested in hitting their numbers and getting "quick hits." Upper management is clueless. They claim to have values but it is simply on paper to prevent law suits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those out in the field. Engage in productive dialogue about what could be improved in your practice. It is not perfect despite what you are being told.

    Negative Outlook
