    Pros

    Great people. A thorough recruiting process weeds out most of the folks you wouldn't want to work or travel with. Smart analysts and associates who are comfortable with complex problem solving and dealing with ambiguity. Managers who care about their people. A large company focus on diversity.

    Strong corporate infrastructure. Solid HR Team and compensation model. Transparency around bonuses and raises. Excellent Training Team and training offerings. Courses that align with career growth. A strong emphasis on coaching and developing coach / coachee relationships. A well-established / well-run corporate Operations Team - helps make selling and running projects less of an adminstrative hassle. Work / life balance programs. A solid career path - you can stay at Huron for the long run and continue to grow.

    Many opportunities to be recognized or get involved with company culture outside of project life - iMatter Teams, networking events, and company conferences.

    Cons

    The typical challenges of a consulting lifestyle - longer hours, travel that keeps you from home, hotel / corporate apartment living.

    Some questionable leadership - but nothing out of the ordinary for any other consulting company. Some MDs and SDs who have managed to stick around for too long despite limited contributions to sales or project execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the emphasis on corporate culture and the programs that recognize / focus on work life balance and career growth.

    Pros

    Forward thinking and innovative company with very strong leadership. If you want to move up, join this growing firm. If you want a company that cares about its employees, then consider Huron. But don't plan on being bored... pace is extremely fast and change is inevitable in consulting.

    Cons

    The intense travel is something that comes with the territory of consulting, but it takes a toll on folks who are unprepared for the commitment it requires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your focus on client excellence and maintaining the strong culture... it's working.

    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.
