      Pros

      I’ve been really impressed with how well Huron has taken care of its employees, particularly noticeable through the pandemic. Great people!

      Cons

      Consulting can be challenging when it comes to work/life balance. I have always received the support I needed to take time away.

      Work/life balance is decent for consulting (think, 10-12 hr workdays M-R, easy Fridays) Great people Youthful culture

      Excellent Corporate Culture and Infrastructure

      Oct 22, 2014 - Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people. A thorough recruiting process weeds out most of the folks you wouldn't want to work or travel with. Smart analysts and associates who are comfortable with complex problem solving and dealing with ambiguity. Managers who care about their people. A large company focus on diversity. Strong corporate infrastructure. Solid HR Team and compensation model. Transparency around bonuses and raises. Excellent Training Team and training offerings. Courses that align with career growth. A strong emphasis on coaching and developing coach / coachee relationships. A well-established / well-run corporate Operations Team - helps make selling and running projects less of an adminstrative hassle. Work / life balance programs. A solid career path - you can stay at Huron for the long run and continue to grow. Many opportunities to be recognized or get involved with company culture outside of project life - iMatter Teams, networking events, and company conferences.

      Cons

      The typical challenges of a consulting lifestyle - longer hours, travel that keeps you from home, hotel / corporate apartment living. Some questionable leadership - but nothing out of the ordinary for any other consulting company. Some MDs and SDs who have managed to stick around for too long despite limited contributions to sales or project execution.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people all around. Challenging work aplenty. Flexible management.

      Cons

      Some of the software products are a little long in the tooth. Newer product development feels a little rocky with mixed confidence levels, but with good intentions at least.
