    Pros

    Huron's Document Review group offers spectacular opportunities for growth for those willing to push for advancement. I was hired from a temporary position as a document reviewer and have been able to work in multiple cities, managing a wide array of review projects, in conjunction with a very strong team.

    Cons

    The legal services group is small and often client needs can be demanding. While there is an effort to find work-life balance where possible, the job is certainly not the kind that can be ignored when you're not at the office. Being responsive to client needs and project demands takes top priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Huron's pay and bonus levels often leave something to be desired. Competing companies offering more money are often very attractive. If you're not committed to matching or beating pay elsewhere, it's important to ensure all other employee needs are met.

    Pros

    The pros: Great work/life balance, working environment, not a ton of travel if in the right group, awesome colleagues, good amount of socials and community service activities to be involved in, fair compensation but not great, interesting work, a lot of responsibility early on in your career.

    Cons

    Tough to get in with the right group and do exactly what you want to be doing. That is the nature of a client driven industry though. Promotions, evaluations and in turn compensation can be somewhat political.
