More Pros and Cons

  1. "Company that needs new Healthcare leadership below Mr. Hussey"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Jim Roth, Mark Hussey and Laura Yeager: great leaders

    Cons

    Everything about the healthcare division is broken. The organization keeps shuffling the top people around but sadly they do not understand much beyond revenue cycle performance improvement. The HC organization is a business school case study in what not to do. Beware if you are considering joining this company at this time.

    Advice to Management

    What can one say?

    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

    Cons

    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

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to rebuild morale following recent rounds of reductions

    Pros

    Management is generally very accessible and open to new ideas. Company makes an effort to evolve, and there is less bureaucracy compared to other companies (although are still office politics)

    Cons

    As much as the company tries to take on new internal initiatives and develop their people, there is a lack of accountability in execution. Ultimately your experience here will come down to your project team- you have a 50/50 chance of working with intelligent and motivated people who are primarily interested in bringing value to the client, or getting stuck in a dead-end role where your only responsibility is to remain billable

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on growth and more on the quality of current staff. Also need more emphasis on managers that are focused on people-development and project management

    Pros

    Great salary and amazing benefits (unlimited PTO, 6% 401k at 100% match, good heath insurance, etc.). Also, you can really own your career here - If you want to get to that next level some directors/managers do a great job of coaching you on how to achieve it. Big enough to get some large clients, but not too big like a BIG 4 where you are a number (been there done that) and the only number that matters is utilization. The medium size is also good because you really can get to know people in your organization but not in an overbearing way like a boutique firm would be.

    Cons

    The worst IT in the world. I think the IT support is underfunded or understaffed because it's so hard to get something actually fixed or someone in the states on a screen share.

    Advice to Management

    Put more $ toward IT support. A walk-up a desk in the Chicago office would be nice. Allow people to get Macs, it's 2017. I personally work so much quicker on a Mac and could do my own troubleshooting but my director never approved it.
