    Pros

    You'll get meaningful work to do eventually
    Great hands-on implementation coaching experience

    Cons

    Monday-Thursday travel every week is brutal
    Analysts and associates do almost all of the work
    Coaching can definitely be lacking
    Young folks probably can't go from new-hire to manager in less than 6 years. That's a long time to live on the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    retaining organic, skillful managers should be a top priority.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Good benefits
    Friendly and Supportive Culture

    Cons

    The pay is incredibly low for consulting
    The recruiting team is not that friendly and is not concerned about candidates. You don't feel valued.
    It's a specialization model, so, if you're young, there's no room for discovery. You have to know immediate what you want to do. It's also very difficult to switch across practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the base salary to industry standard for consulting
    Hire less people, and be more selective on your hiring process
    Revamp your recruiting team and approach

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group

    Pros

    The working environment was filled with people who generally want to do well. You live in apartments during projects which makes traveling every week more comfortable.

    Cons

    The healthcare methodology is "Cookie Cutter" and does no match the current healthcare environment. This was actually mentioned to me several times in discussions with people from other healthcare consulting forums.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group

    Pros

    The firm delivers value to clients. Some very smart "true believers" working there.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is very broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get gender balance in leadership. More intensive coaching for low-performing middle managers.
