    Pros

    The software I was building was for a great cause - I worked for the 'Click Commerce' branch of Huron, and I built applications for Research Facilities to procure funding and use it for scientific research.

    Cons

    The tools are SOOOOO outdated - think of the oldest version of Dreamweaver you have seen, and that is what you will be using here if you work in Professional Services. You will write Javascript and JScript (server side javascript) without a sufficient IDE, with no intellisense, and with terrible error handling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your toolset so your developers don't get left behind in the ever-changing technology workforce.

    Pros

    Benefits are satisfactory. People in the trenches are excellent

    Cons

    Upper management such as managing directors are so far off the mark on what clients really want that they make poor decisions, relay the marching orders, then blame on site management when the client gets upset. There is no collaboration whatsoever between team members at the management level and no room for creativity and new ideas. There is a very high turnover that is covered up by HR, especially for those individuals who are not willing to give up their integrity and do whatever is asked of them even if is it against the Project Management Code of Ethics. I hate to say this but their upper management level is basically a Whites Only Club. In my 20 years of experience, I never had to deal with discrimination until I worked for Huron. I even tried to express my concerns with HR and my mentor, which led to my termination mainly becuase I refused to commit an unethical act.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete a root cause analysis and really find out why there is such a high turnover of very experienced people in higher education.
