    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Great place to launch a career with strong upward mobility for high performers, great coworkers to work with

    Lack of direction or clear strategic plan at the top. Growth is largely through acquisition and recent competitive and market challenges have left leadership scrambling to readjust but so far its more talk than action
