    Look for additional opportunities to allow at least 1 remote week for consultants per month.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, compensation, bonus.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for travel. 4 days a week may work for people in their 20's. Most experienced professionals do not want to travel to this extent. No flexibility.

    Project Managers tend to have temper problems and will launch tirades at you without explanation.

    Advice to Management

    You say that you care about work-life balance. Yet, your employees don't see that commitment. If you are planning to retain experienced hires, you will have to change these expectations. Most consulting firms implementing Workday do not travel to this extent.

    Understand how project managers interact with employees on-site and how they resolve conflicts. Unprofessional conduct and language are common.
