    Pros

    Dress for your day allows employees to wear business casual clothes/jeans to work. No PTO policy which is great. You can take PTO pretty much whenever you want so long as if doesn’t interfere with any projects/work. Huron also matches up to 6% for 401K which is higher than most companies.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of perks or company outings.

    Pros

    Great structure, focus on employee development, plenty of opportunity for upward growth. Leadership is strong.

    Cons

    As with most consulting firms, the travel becomes a barrier for a longer career - comes with the territory, but this was the largest drawback.

    Pros

    Travel accommodations are great and training is intense and prepares you for the job

    Cons

    I took this job RIGHT out of college. I was an intern for the company and then accepted a full time offer. This company's review structure is completely backwards. Your job depends on the boss you have for 3-6 months. They review you and unfortunately, if they don't like you, they have the ability to fire you. This company is also doing HORRIBLY right now. They've laid off hundreds of their top talent consultants. STAY AWAY unless you plan on doing a year and then leaving

    Advice to Management

    Work on your employee review methods.
