I worked at Huron Consulting Group

Pros

Work can be interesting; opportunities for travel when staffed on projects; generous PTO policy when unstaffed; younger culture

Cons

Layoffs and downsizing; fewer chances for junior employees to get involved in higher level deals; a lot of pitches and marketing that generated few wins; too many Managing Directors that failed to sell work (top heavy)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get junior people involved in work that is not just pitchbooks and data entry; keep everyone informed about the reality of the pipeline and new deals

    Pros

    I enjoy working on different engagements. Your responsibilities change on a weekly and/or monthly basis which allows you to develop a large range of skills.

    Cons

    This can be seen as a positive for some, but some engagements require extensive travel. For someone who is married with kids, this could be tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Their are incredibly bright and good at what they do but many people are spread to thin. Managing Directors need to stop micro managing every project and begin to have faith in the project managers they have hired to run/manage projects.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Huron is the pay. A starting salary of $60,000+ attracted lots of interests from college students.

    There is also opportunity to receive promotions rather quickly.

    Cons

    The work! Getting work at Huron as a new hire is like playing the lottery. Many new hires sat on the "bench" for months before getting their first assignment. Additionally, very few analysts and associates at Huron enjoyed their work. Projects were disorganized and analysts lacked adequate support from middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new hires. If you are going to hire hundreds of recent college graduates to work in "Legal Consulting", then give them more than a 3-day crash in the field.

    Also, hire more middle management. When I left, it seemed that the company was predominantly 25 yr olds and 50 yr olds.
