    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits (health insurance, etc), rewards for heavy travel

    Cons

    Not great with work/life balance in spite of lip service unless you live in the city where you are consulting. Some evidence of gender discrimination against women.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow consultants bear the burden for discounts given to clients. Allow training time and internal meetings to counted as billable hours.

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity for undergrads fresh out of school and pays pretty well out of school. The benefits and perks are more than fair.

    Cons

    Promotions requirements can be a little unclear especially anything after the Associate level. The workload can greatly very from team to team and project to project.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rarely have to work weekends Some good staff

    Cons

    100% travel Below market pay Hires people based on select experience, not intelligence, creating situations where employees are only staffable on unique projects

    Advice to Management

    You are creating a commodity with your current strategy Charging extremely low rates to clients, resulting in not giving bonuses or raises to staff creates high turnover thus this is not truly a consulting firm, more of a canned solution that anybody can deliver

  5. Rapid growth contributes to identity crisis. Leadership seems short-sighted

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation, and great PTO policy. As with many consulting firms, it is nice to work with smart and driven colleagues. I have had significant career opportunities to grow as long as I was willing to react to feedback and always looking for opportunities outside of my regular work. Huron has treated me well in that regard.

    Cons

    Leadership consistently chooses short-sighted profit over long-term cultural goals. Understandable, but can be frustrating at times. The moment we have a lull in work, management focuses on strong initiatives, but has little resolve to stick to them if we sell more work.

    Other team members are strong

    No direction from upper management and no autonomy to lead teams. Salary is below market. Bonus pool hasn't been funded for years at 100%

    Pay your talent, and then give them the autonomy to impact the organization.
