    Pros

    Values driven environment that respects employee differences and encourages growth and mentoring. Huron is interested in keeping employees happy.

    Cons

    Culture that cannot seem to let go of the past for nostalgic reasons despite continued growth. There are a handful of leaders that have come into position based on time spend with company instead of the talent being offered.

    Huron Consulting Groups healthcare practice, Huron Healthcare, has been a great place to work! Growth opportunities, expansion of company offerings, great industry reputation and great people to work with!

    Great benefits, smart people, flexible work arrangements - unless client commitments dictate otherwise. ability to "see something, do something" - Very open to implementing change if you have the right sponsorship and commitment

    Cons

    growing really fast and working on bringing the historical great culture with them but not always succeeding. Very Chicago-centric, need to put focus on empowering remote employees to sustain the growth and talent needs

    Pros

    Great culture - work hard, play hard with great people. Reasonable work/life balance. Respected and valued for your hard work and contributions.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to other consulting firms. Travel is 100% M-TH every week but that is consulting.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good Benefits -Great work/life balance for those not in travel roles -Great place to get a start in your career -Good training opportunities

    Cons

    -Career path quickly plateaus -Upper management has bold ideas, but fails to provide a realistic (or any) road map to execution -Low relative salary -Does not practice what they preach in regards to values/culture

    Advice to Management

    Start taking a hard look at the values and your ACTUAL demonstration of them. Acknowledge and address the turnover rate. Too many people in upper management are "untouchable", yet contribute to a very toxic environment.

    Pros

    Benefits are good (401k match is excellent), work-life balance is decent and managers have an open door policy.

    Cons

    work hours can be extreme for field personnel; travel is nearly 100% of the time. The clients are very demanding and consultants are always dealing with dissatisfied clients.

    Advice to Management

    The management team needs to follow the value statements as well as create software solutions that clients will find easy to use without frustration.
