    Pros

    Amazing company culture. Great people - smart, accountable, knowledgeable. A work hard, play hard environment with clients needs and satisfaction at the forefront of all the work we do.

    Cons

    Recent softness in the healthcare market has left the platform feeling a bit unsteady. However; Huron is not the only company experiencing this. Work/life balance is not always prioritized.

    Advice to Management

    Consider retention bonuses to keep your strong performers engaged and around to get through the hurdles.

    The people generally are great!

    Healthcare Leadership really has no direction. It's very sad to see the lack of vision and strategy. We are a step behind the industry.

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Varied project types; liked people I worked with in my division

    Cons

    Company was transferring work from nurses to non-nurses and presenting them as clinical people by default. Analysts and Associates doing new work were very young and had no idea what the dynamics were of a situation they were assessing. Lower level employees set standards for employees at higher levels to control behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Understand all job roles; very sexist and condesending - stop promising client savings that are impossible to achieve

    Pros

    401k, benefits, work life balance . I had some great mentors when I started out from whom I learnt a lot.

    Cons

    My manager was an abusive bully who has a history of it with previous employees who reported to him . I was alienated , not given any new projects and siloed. When I asked for a transfer he retaliated and ensured that I was laid off .I went to HR who did not do anything . Stay away from the Portland office if you notice that you look and feel different from the majority of people in the office . All the talk on integrity and diversity is plain lip service here.

    Advice to Management

    How do abusive bullies stay and keep their jobs ? How does a manager get promoted when people reporting to him and doing all the heavy lifting get laid off ? I now understand why this company is going down.

    Pros

    Health benefits, Travel benefits, 401K match (6%), Company events

    Cons

    Not enough training and advancement opportunities. They pretty much throw you under the bus and expect you to survive. Bad C-level management decisions cost many people jobs. The Workday practice is a mess from top down. The MDs dont know what they're doing to win a project and are pretty much useless. Workday practice has no room for growth and its a dead end for anyone who joins the WD practice because you will sit on bench forever since they dont have any projects to put you on.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to you employees and dont keep lying to them about getting Workday projects. I thought corporate HR is supposed to help the employees but it clearly isn't. Reevaluate your HR department and fire people who are not following company values and guidelines. The coaching system is useless, get rid of it.

    Pros

    Interesting work, friendly coworkers, welcoming atmosphere

    Cons

    100% travel, some consultants are more interested in accruing flight miles and hotel points than the client work

    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
