      Ok start to career, but look elsewhere if top talent

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly teams and leadership. Gain a fundamental (i.e, bare minimum) consulting skills.

      Cons

      Pay is 30-40% lower than top consulting firms (hard fact, working elsewhere now). Half my division had no business working as business advisors to anyone. Glorified staffing agency. Pigeon-holed into the most uninteresting work imaginable. I didn’t realize how unimaginative this firm was, both in terms of cross-functional expertise, use of technology, and agile methodologies. I’m shocked clients to send them business.

      Good company to work for

      May 3, 2021 - Data Integration Developer in Lake Oswego, OR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      * Super collaborative across departments and within a team * There are opportunities to move up in the company and/or work in a different department to get more experience on products * Great culture

      Cons

      * When there is a reduction in workforce, it appears how much you make is part of it. Number of years does not seem to factor in.

      High Level Leadership is Great - Project level leadership, not so much

      Jan 25, 2021 - Healthcare Manager in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits. Don't have to work weekends (during the week maybe you work long hours, but weekend work is usually not expected unless absolutely necessary).

      Cons

      Many of the employees are corporate climbers and very cliquey, but this is probably because most of the employees are straight out of their MBA's and want to get to the top of the "heap" sooner than later.

      Great Company!

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Huron is a great company. Mid sized and can form relationships with leadership. Coaching program is a huge perk to have a mentor as a professional.

      Cons

      Salary is on the lower side in comparison to other consulting firms.

      High Marks for Diversity and Leadership Team

      Mar 22, 2021 - Manager in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Diversity - they're very focused on diversity recruiting and retention programs. Leadership - great decision to build cross industry technology practices to complement healthcare and higher education businesses. Year-end bonus is better than competitors, salary = competitive, and PTO is open. Leadership is accessible - if you don't like something, speak up and you'll be heard.

      Cons

      Pre-COVID, I would have said the heavy travel. But everyone's working remote now and it's actually going very well.
