    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - The people that work here are amazing (smart, good people, fun). The culture is tight knit and your co-workers become your best friends.
    - There is a strong culture of development and coaching. I always felt like leadership had my back and was helping me plan for my next role, promotion, development opportunity, etc. I really felt like I was in control of my career.
    - I really respect and trust senior leadership. Leadership is very transparent and available to any level.
    - Work is challenging, but fun

    Cons

    We had a couple of slow years in healthcare. The practice leader at the time seemed slow to make necessary changes to get us back on track. We now have new leadership that is very committed to this and I feel good about where we're going.

    Travel can be tough, but that's all part of the deal with consulting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Online Assessment Test:
    --1 min self-introduction
    --10 excel questions
    Super easy as long as you have experiences with excel, you will be able to answer all correctly.

    Reference Form:
    Have to fill out a reference form with 2 references

    On-site Interview:
    One leadership interview and one case interview.
    Leadership interviews: very typical. Tell me a time...Why consulting...Why huron.....

    Case interview: very different from what you would prepare for McKinsey..Bain..etc. It is interviewer-led and the questions are very general. First two questions are about why this happened with this client and what is your solution..then the third question interviewer asked me to make a recommendation to upper level management ASSUMING that I have all my data and research done. There is a math problem following the case interview as well. Very simple.

    Overall experience is average. They made you feel very welcome but after the interview, they won't answer your follow-up email at all.
