    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - You'll rack-up a lot of air miles and hotel points. - If you don't have friends or family and want to work 24x7 you'll do great.

    Cons

    - Work-life balance is non-existent. They tout the unlimited vacation but you will never truly get to "sign-off". - Management will start an engagement before the right resources are available which leads to people working multiple projects. - Values are talked about a lot but never lived. Quality is not important.

    Advice to Management

    Hire skilled functional consultants rather than just seat fillers. Scrap unlimited vacation.
