    I worked at Huron Consulting Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Location; Competent Team Leaders; Professional Support and Friendly attitude, plus relaxed dress code.

    Too competitive pay; did not feature a "bonus" plan for higher standards of work.

    Introduce bonuses for higher standards.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    People in the office were good, work-life balance was very reasonable for a consulting company, clients were generally interesting, projects were mostly interesting (see below).

    Cons

    Some types of projects got repetitive. Executive management was uninspired and dull, and at times felt like was completely missing in action. Benefits were minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Listed company needs to mind the share price, but at times it felt like that was the only thing being watched. Quite uninspiring. Invest in your people, you are a consulting company.

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

    Pros

    There is not a lot of good that I can say about Huron. The LCG is focused on low value add activities that can be billed quickly. No real strategy or performance improvement work in their practice.

    Cons

    In order to succeed at Huron you need to sell a lot of low value work that you can premium bill. This usually means litigation support that you outsource to India.

    Advice to Management

    Need stronger focus on "value added" services for clients.
    Better professional development opportunities.
    Improved mentoring.
