I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Good technical and consulting training for recent college graduates
- Learn the corporate ropes and work with a large amount of well knows clients through the US
- The PTO is comparable to most companies
- Fun culture, lots of team events

Cons

- Many of the employees become team leads and supervisors quickly. This causes micromanagement and competition so everyone can justify their positions
- This is not a place for an experienced hire to work, the policies are built around teaching college students
- The amount of PTO is decent, the way it's distributed (rolling) is terrible and it never increases no matter how long you have worked there
- Management doesn't listen to the employees, they have moved the company into a declining position in the market

    Pros

    Great work-life balance; excellent PTO package

    Cons

    Culture is one of everyone telling on everyone else. Matrix organization; poor pay for corp employees; expensive healthcare premiums; performance mgmt is really based more on what others think of you than how well you perform your job; low increases if you get one!

    Advice to Management

    Do something abt the culture, corp employees work very hard, they deserve to be treated more like part of the org, than just the red-headed step child because they are not revenue generators!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group as a contractor

    Pros

    Location of the office on Wall Street; Not a lot of overtime work; Company culture itself seems pleasant. Company gets good clients and interesting projects.

    Cons

    "Managers" have zero management skills. Unbelievable micro-managing, extreme lack of professionalism among one or two 'managers' who have sudden moments of pure tyranny. One manager treats workers like 5 year olds, does not know how to talk to people, and makes for a tense environment that slows productivity. Absolutely no support or guidance, No idea how such people actually get hired-does not seem to fit with Huron's culture. Also, no room for advancement or permanency, and thus, no motivation to put up with the nonsense or to do a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely and then replace some of those in management in the NY legal consulting team that handles document review because they alienate the true professionals who can give their best to your company, even if on a temporary basis, and instead, attract the less skilled just because they are complacent.
