    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    - The people that work here are amazing (smart, good people, fun). The culture is tight knit and your co-workers become your best friends. - There is a strong culture of development and coaching. I always felt like leadership had my back and was helping me plan for my next role, promotion, development opportunity, etc. I really felt like I was in control of my career. - I really respect and trust senior leadership....

    Cons

    We had a couple of slow years in healthcare. The practice leader at the time seemed slow to make necessary changes to get us back on track. We now have new leadership that is very committed to this and I feel good about where we're going. Travel can be tough, but that's all part of the deal with consulting.

    Pros

    Collegial atmosphere, less command and control unlike other Consulting firms

    Cons

    Poor collaboration across practice areas. Org Structure perpetuates territorial behavior by MD's. Insufficient investment in methodology and research. Diversity is driven almost entirely by white female and LGBT - very little representation from other ethnicitys.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    - Really good culture - Wonderful people - Significant, measurable impact with clients - Great place to grow a career

    Cons

    - Huron is experiencing a considerable growth curve and is having to work hard to stay ahead of resource and capacity needs. Lots of great steps being taking to address...but will take a little time.

    Advice to Management

    The firm has evolved a lot over recent years...to the better. Stay focused on bringing the strategy to life. Will be very interesting to see where we are 3-5 years from now!

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Huron hires some of the best, most talented recent college graduates in the marketplace. My co-workers were some of the most professional and well respected individuals in the market Base compensation and bonus was very good. There were some down years but overall, we were paid well above average. Benefits and 401k matching are some of the best in the consulting world

    Cons

    They sold my division in 2016 to a Venture Capital firm. Not really a con for Huron just didn't workout for the consulting arm of our group.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance is decent for consulting (think, 10-12 hr workdays M-R, easy Fridays) Great people Youthful culture

    Cons

    Noncompetitive pay (mgmt insists it is not an issue, despite constant complaints and the fact that we are hemorrhaging analysts and associates) Highly political Understaffed (can't keep any good experienced hires for 6+ months)

    Advice to Management

    Bring pay at least up to market - it's unreasonable to expect people to see their peers at other firms dramatically widening the pay gap and stick around just because they like the culture. Nice coworkers don't pay our mortgages.
