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

    Pros

    Worked with great people, had a great work-life balance, and learned a ton! Have a great opportunity to work closely with Senior Leadership, and be involved with Sales & thought leadership even at a young age. Management does respect opinions of junior staff, and the social environment is great.

    Cons

    Management gets cliquey when it comes to staffing, and did not actively support broad growth through exposure to diverse projects. If you want to become a subject matter expert, however, there is an upward trajectory.

    Advice to Management

    Take a longer-term view of junior staff development. Listen to their feedback and try to diversify their staffing

    Pros

    Great colleagues; visionary CEO - wish he was directing the healthcare division more. Interim healthcare leader doing a better job and more transparent.

    Cons

    Healthcare leaders are not equipped to turn the organization around. Need direction; healthcare division is conducting quarterly RIFs. Beware. Clean house at MD level!

    Advice to Management

    Clean up corporate services

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

    Pros

    vibrant culture, proven methodology, great approach to healthcare and company confidence in driving change for clients

    Cons

    variability in workflow intensity, significant politics involved in company culture (who knows who), ambiguous success as a firm, has been known to alter numbers for company benefit

    Advice to Management

    reevaluate Huron methodology to ensure that it drives change for clients rather than just providing them with more busy work and reporting tools

    Pros

    Lots of growth opportunities and decent work life for consultant life. Good first career company.

    Cons

    Company is not sure on what direction it is heading in and is causing sales issues due to that. Compensation is average for consultants. Not sure on long term employment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees and market changes.

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

    Pros

    I have been at Huron as an analyst in the Life Sciences practice for over a year and could not have picked a better place to start at out of college. Not only am I constantly learning through the diverse client projects and the incredibly smart management, but the company really promotes a great office culture. The people who I work with have become good friends and are always incredibly supportive.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any cons so far, especially compared to the experiences of my peers at other consulting companies. Some might see the fact that you are put into a specific functional area from the beginning as a con, but I have appreciated the depth of knowledge I have gained in that area and there is great diversity of projects even within each functional area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep what you are doing! I think the company is going in a great direction and the management is very receptive to feedback from people at all levels.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Huron offers good benefits, nice facilities (for those of us not working from client locations) and a great group of co-workers. While pay was never top of the market, it was reasonably competitive and efforts were made to ensure at least some bonuses were paid even when business units missed targets.

    Cons

    I was part of a business unit sold to a small start-up type company for a bargain-basement price at the beginning of 2016. While some efforts were made to smooth the transition, involuntarily going from a large company to a small one was not without its problems. Management's reasoning for selling off the unit quickly and cheaply was never clear. Communication among different business units was consistently poor. Employee trust has been eroded by layoffs and the sale of business units. After asking (and demanding) that employees put forward 110% day in and day out, it's hard to see friends and co-workers tossed aside for short-term investor satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Current management seems capable of peacetime management but Huron needs to be on wartime footing. Leadership doesn't seem to possess the vision, internal buy-in or structure necessary to successfully lead even its reduced lines of business. Closing off or selling lines of business that were not effectively integrated into a cohesive whole squandered the value of those areas. Each group was continually hampered because there was not an environment of cross-collaboration and innovation. The current focus seems to rely too heavily on consulting at the expense of the service delivery, technological innovation and internal development necessary to make Huron's offerings unique.
