Like all companies there can be some down sides some of the leadership managing directors lack for people skills.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL).
I applied online through my college after attending an information session. Both my housemate and I got first-round interviews at the local airport, where they were interviewing a lot of candidates from nearby schools. Those interviews went well, fairly standard consulting stuff, but my housemate got eliminated. I advanced to the final round in Chicago, where I was eliminated. I asked for feedback about the final round and they provided it a few days later. The final round was super positive and friendly, and was mostly a meet-and-greet culture fit situation. Apparently I came across as too aggressive in the interviews. My first interviewer described me as a someone who could potentially rub a client the wrong way and felt I didn't make proper eye contact. He also didn't like that I described myself as intelligent. They asked if I had concerns about the job and I mentioned being nervous about the travel, which they used as another reason to eliminate me. If you make it to the final round, don't be fooled into a false sense of security, you are very much still being evaluated.
