    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Other team members are strong

    Cons

    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%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is variable depending on your group; here in Healthcare you can vary from 40-60 easily

    Cons

    Bad track record of hiring experienced people. They only nail it about 1/4 the time, and they fail miserably 1/4 the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop yourselves as leaders. Invest in more training for experienced hires when necessary, and be more selective of those you choose.

    Pros

    People are smart, young and capable. Leadership is finding the right areas to expand to continue to grow. Great emphasis on training. Lots of opps to travel.

    Cons

    Growing pains of pushing out of typical methodology, some outdated tools. Promotion process can be pretty complex and you have to have the right people in your court.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are doing all the right things to keep the company moving in a positive direction poised for growth.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They offered a doc review experience while I was waiting to hear for my Bar Result. Pay was OK. Their D.C. location had clean facility. Great to earn your living while waiting to get a real permanent job.

    Cons

    The work can be really tedious. Some folks just cannot handle the constant eye strain they'd get by doing the review all day.
