    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, pleasant work environment, management appreciates employees. Many times, management buys lunch or dinner. Vending machines with drinks and snacks are subsidized so drinks are only $.30 and snacks under $.50!

    Cons

    Lower than average salary. No real benefits. Sometimes communication is not consistent and does not reach all employees

    Advice to Management

    More consistent communication with employees. Raising the salary slightly would ensure more employee stability. Play on the real benefit of Huron - flexibility and make sure offices are open a variety of hours - especially more evening hours.

    Pros

    Company is entrepreneurial in that you can lead your own business and see results in your specific area, however it provides you leadership and support as requested. Not all great--some members of leadership are weak, however it has been a fantastic experience to work here.

    Cons

    Some weak members on leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees.

    Pros

    The people are the best reason. We have great benefits and management really cares about the development of its people.

    Travel can be difficult and hours sometimes long. The company is still growing and developing new policies and proceedures which can change.

    I suggest that management continues to work on people initiatives and the committment to developing a strong culture to drive growth.
