    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The teams really care about each other. Good environment to do meaningful work for their clients. Lots of opportunity for learning and advancement.

    Cons

    Large variance in quality of consultants. The vast majority are extremely strong but some weaker ones that put projects at risk.

    Advice to Management

    Review lower performers more frequently and create road maps to performance improvement that is meaningful and actionable. Improve communication to teams, with the regional offices there is a lot of information that does not make it out of the headquarters.

    Pros

    Good benefits Good company if you are young

    Cons

    Depending on Project Leader the work life balance can be bad. Also the organization likes young people out of college and promotes them upward without industry experience very quickly. The implementation ROIs are based on other individual assessments who are focused on sales. Hard to implement unrealistic benefit but you are held accountable for it.

    Advice to Management

    Rely on people who have been in industry for assessment opportunity levels

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Unlimited PTO - Some very fun and enjoyable people working there - Company culture leans more startup-like - Ping pong, great snacks, beer on tap

    Cons

    - HHSG is one of the worst companies I have ever seen in terms of management. They are absolutely abysmal at creating software and managing. - The worst employees are regularly promoted to the top, and once the employees are at the top they are unremovable - Product management is unbelievably inept. They are so inept the entire company is aware of this, yet due to decades of tenure from this team they are unable to removed. I was literally told by upper management to accept that we will never have good product management. - Promotion structure involved giving you the responsibility of the new job with no pay or promotion backing it with "promises" of the pay and promotion in the future - Poor stewards of technology: Their main product and biggest cash cow was neglected, shoved aside, and exploited while the underlying infrastructure of the product crumbled. Quick features and bugfixes to save contracts. Never did they take the time to refactor the product or fix serious infrastructural issues.

    Advice to Management

    Stop, slow down, and assess what you have. Get smart people to look at your core products and make them strong. Stop being so overly focused on metrics and scorecards to look good for larger Huron.
