    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You'll get meaningful work to do eventually Great hands-on implementation coaching experience

    Cons

    Monday-Thursday travel every week is brutal Analysts and associates do almost all of the work Coaching can definitely be lacking Young folks probably can't go from new-hire to manager in less than 6 years. That's a long time to live on the road.

    Advice to Management

    retaining organic, skillful managers should be a top priority.

    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.

    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 Management

    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


  8. Corporate Culture is Truly Terrible

    Pros

    The firm delivers value to clients. Some very smart "true believers" working there.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is very broken.

    Advice to Management

    Get gender balance in leadership. More intensive coaching for low-performing middle managers.

    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 Management

    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.

    Lead and inspire others
