    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Certain groups have really bright people
    Work life balance can be good, completely dependent on group
    Opportunity to take on a lot of responsbility for a self starter
    Opportunity to do the bare minimum if you're a slacker (something for everyone)

    Ted Schwab was pretty much the coolest person you'd ever meet

    Cons

    Corporate overhead is high - far too many people doing nothing in corporate, but layoffs occur with consultants
    Partners (MDs across groups) were not selling, pipeline was low, massive yearly layoffs
    Narrow outlook outside of healthcare in terms of career opportunities afterward

    Advice to Management

    Hire management who can sell
    Fire management not generating revenue before you focus on laying off people making 5 figures per year

    Smart, highly motivated people. Meritocratic career advancement. Meaningful projects/clients. Strong focus on development of employees. Great compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Happiness can depend on whether you're staffed on a project that fits you.

    Pros

    Huron has smart people and excellent training at entry levels. Unlike some consultancies, there is opportunity for advancement without an MBA, if that appeals to you. You'll get senior executive exposure even at the analyst level. Pay and benefits are competitive. There are opportunities to work internationally or at the very least transfer offices around the country if you have a desire.

    Cons

    Long hours, par for the course in consulting. Like most consultancies, the staffing model can exposure you to lots of travel, a pro or a con depending on the person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recruiting talented individuals. Increase brand presence and expand practice areas.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been at Huron as an analyst in the Life Sciences practice for over a year and could not have picked a better place to start at out of college. Not only am I constantly learning through the diverse client projects and the incredibly smart management, but the company really promotes a great office culture. The people who I work with have become good friends and are always incredibly supportive.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any cons so far, especially compared to the experiences of my peers at other consulting companies. Some might see the fact that you are put into a specific functional area from the beginning as a con, but I have appreciated the depth of knowledge I have gained in that area and there is great diversity of projects even within each functional area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep what you are doing! I think the company is going in a great direction and the management is very receptive to feedback from people at all levels.
