    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.

    Corporate Culture is Truly Terrible

    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.

    Poor work/life balance. Still implementing trainings and procedures.

    Continue to work on trainings, also work on providing people with ability to move laterally within the company or further developing workers.

    Former Employee - Administrative in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Administrative in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great place to start in the corporate world depending on which field you are interested in.
    401(K) Matching program
    22 PTO days given at the start of the year
    Wellness Program

    Cons

    1. No transparency: There is no openness, communication and accountability, you can easily be thrown under the boss
    2. Don't ask, don't tell: A colleague leaves the firm and you find out when you try to email them and they are not listed in the system.
    3. Go with the flow atmosphere: In various departments its slow and if you are not proactively hounds people for work you'll sit there for the day doing nothing.
    4. No Structure: There is very little implementation of structure, if you want it you will have to create your own.
    5. Micro-Management: When you are given a project you have a handful of people telling you to do the same thing five hundred different ways, some breathe down your neck and some just don't care after its said and done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When advise is given from support its okay to listen and give direct feedback!
    Reward your employees for their work that they do, something little goes a long way.
    You must implement ongoing mandatory training's for managers and directors, there are a lot of people who DO NOT know how to lead their groups.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Responsibilities are learned early on
    -Dynamic culture
    -Variety of technology and business methodologies
    -Easy access to learning
    -Acceptable benefits
    -Interesting projects

    Cons

    -Overpriced hours billed to the lowest billing consultants "analysts just out of college more than likely"
    -Worst work/life
    -High turnover
    -Senior Management (lack of initiatives, no direction, no support, lack of management skills)
    -Advancement is questionable, the formula seems to be on the right project at the right time, pick a good coach
    -Professional Development is the worst, don't expect this indicator to mean anything, most of the other managers and directors are aware how bad it is
    -Small-Med consulting firm competition is on the rise, they grew to big too fast and are now fighting firms with half the amount of employees for the same contracts. In turn they only go after contracts that are valuable rather than providing a complete solution
    -Lack of resources to move new projects forward
    -Company grows by acquisition not by internal growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make upper management more accountable. All of these Con's are because upper management allows and is aware of these issues. Only the CEO can be blamed if it has continued as long as it has. Give lower management some available time to breath and actually provide management.
