    Pros

    Company encourage work life balance! Here everyone tries for quality, not for quantity. Good place to build a career!

    Cons

    Technology shop is small compared to other consulting firms. It limits the exposure I feel.

    Advice to Management

    Please do focus to grow technology group.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation. They practice what they preach. Full of very smart, motivated and competent folks. You will truly expand your horizons and be challenged

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. A great deal of internal completion - especially at the director level and above. Can be difficult to get staffed on the "right project" (e.g. the one with good visibility by senior management).


  3. Good benefits, not so great base salary

    Pros

    From a benefits perspective, they really provide some nice perks like Health & Wellness reimbursement, unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    At least within their HR department, the base salaries they offer are really low, much closer to the lower end of the scale for an Associate, rather than being closer to the local average or national average for that type of position. Also, the Annual Review process could be improved, it doesn't seem like there is transparency there when it comes to feedback you should receive throughout the year, prior to receiving your annual review.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a comp package that is fair market value to employees

    Pros

    -Generous PTO policy.

    -Great people - intelligent co-workers
    .
    -Company has strong community involvement.

    Cons

    -A company that looks good on paper, but disappoints once you're actually in the doors. It's a good place to start your career, but not a place worth staying.

    -The people are great, but good talent is often leaving.

    -Managers are weak and lack leadership.

    -The culture that once made the compay great is fading.

    -Huron is growing and is still trying to figure out who they want to be. Change isn't managed well and performance expectations are often unrealistic and not consistent across groups.

    Pros

    Great place for entry level software engineers. Majority of coworkers are friendly and helpful and mentoring is well established. Highly recommend for college grads.
    Great PTO.
    6% matching 401k.
    Work/Life Balance is heavily promoted and utilized.
    Great feeling when clients are excited to use your software.

    Cons

    Anyone with 3+ years experience will fall asleep from boredom because technical assignments are rarely challenging. 95% of code is simple if statements, for loops or property assignments.
    Salary cap for senior positions is ridiculously low. Experienced personnel are constantly leaving for better pay.
    Huge push to drink the "kool aid" when there are minimal benefits to doing so.
    Push to spend time to improve internal processes & code quality but at the same time ding you for not billing enough hours to clients. Basically = work more for same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen & address employee feedback, it's having a positive effect on moral and performance.
    It's hard to replace experienced personnel and fresh grads can only do so much, so consider bumping up senior salaries to mitigate the current outflow of senior devs.
    It's great to have new initiatives for innovation and improved quality, but if the first thing out of your mouth is personnel have to "make up" (re: put in OT) any time spent doing those improvements, you've just killed most of the goodwill you garnered. Consider this: why would anyone want to put in unpaid OT? If I wanted to work extra I could do freelance for significantly more than free.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Lots of opportunity to get to know colleagues and grow personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Not as competitive with pay as competitors. Senior leadership is very male dominant.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive pay packages to attract and retain top talent.
