Pros

Huron is well positioned in the market as it has been selective with the types of service offerings and industries served that have sustainable needs. Investment is being made in all core businesses to meet the high demand for performance improvement while building solutions to meet the dynamic needs of the market. The firm has a focus on it's people initiatives (coaching, development and performance) and there are many initiatives to further build a rich culture of collaboration through values, diversity and inclusion, leadership development, community service, and corporate social responsibility. It's an excellent environment to build your career and the firm is improving the mobility of it's staff across solution areas. There is also a unique opportunity to be part of an entrepreneurial environment within the brand and resources of Huron - this is especially true with our emerging businesses.

Cons

The firm continues to build it's infrastructure, keeping in mind Huron is a relatively new company and is experience high growth. Growing the right infrastructure and programs to support that growth is a work in process but it's a focal point of management. Entry level compensation is not as competitive as some of the larger firms, but there is signficant upside to building your career in a firm the size of Huron in terms of development, recognition and leadership path for high performers. Most consultants travel Mon-Thur every week, so it's a lifestyle you must be amenable to or this is not the right place.

Advice to Management

Marketing and brand development is something that is heavily weighted in the work we do and reputation we build with our clients, employees and talent market. Having a unified brand strategy that addresses clients, investors, talent, community, and employees is an opportunity for the firm to tell our story and gain more visibility.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and there are definitely some great perks including 22 vacation days, spot bonuses, free soft drinks, etc. Some of the projects are very interesting and you can have a lot of flexibility as part of work/ life balance.

    Can get into the niche industry of Healthcare.

    Cons

    You can get stuck on some really boring and long travel clients. In addition, work can sometimes be unpredictable with long hours and work over the weekends. I think the Senior Management needs to develop a better future vision. Upward movement (promotion) can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Need better strategy

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Co-workers are fun and caring.
    - Some of the work is interesting, and clients do benefit from some of the services.
    - Good training opportunities

    Cons

    - The way teams approach projects is archaic and leaves little opportunity for innovation or learning, especially if you are on the lower end of the hierarchy. A lot of what you do is detail-oriented work that is dictated to you from above. If you have an idea of how things may work better, don't count on anyone listening.
    - Lots of travel for most consulting positions; travel every week - Monday 7am through Thursday evening. This gets really old.
    - Definitely a "good old boys" feel for upper management. The hierarchical feel is very prominent as well-- not lots of open discussion between levels within the organization.
    - Definitely a stereotypical consultant vibe within the company-- "if you speak the lingo, people will think you know what you're talking about". This wasn't the case for everyone I came across, but was more prevalent that I liked. It made me feel bad to have the client paying for staff that were not prepared and did not provide quality work, but tried to give the impression that they did.
    - Pay and compensation is low compared to similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    - Be open to new ideas, it's the only way your company will continue to grow.
    - Take a look at how you offer promotions and growth opportunities.
    - Encourage additional discussion between organizational levels- you'll likely learn a lot from those that are doing the day-to-day work.
