    Cons

    Noncompetitive pay (mgmt insists it is not an issue, despite constant complaints and the fact that we are hemorrhaging analysts and associates) Highly political Understaffed (can't keep any good experienced hires for 6+ months)

    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.

    Pros

    Great People to work with, and great network

    Culture is spoken but not implemented or enforced. Some areas do abide by it, but generally it's a ton of double speak.

    I have been working at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Great people- Everyone I've interacted with is extremely kind, open to help, and genuinely care. This truly makes Huron stand apart from other firms that tend to be competitive and cut-throat. Input from day 1- I was included in the conversation on analysis for my project on day 1. My thoughts were heard, discussed, and integrated into the final deliverable. It is rare to find a company that makes you feel valued. Flexible- You can work from home or other locations when it doesn't interfere with client work. Unlimited PTO is a great bonus. Requests for PTO must be approved by your project manager, but I haven't had any issues. Feedback- You should get and give feedback during and at the conclusion of each project. Feedback has always been phrased constructively and professionally. Additionally, everyone has a peer mentor and a coach to go to for advice. Overall, Huron stands by its core values and has been an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    Tools- 99.9% of work is done in excel. Huron makes it very difficult for people who have experience in other tools to get them. There is a desire to keep pushing to improve (a great pro), but there is a lack of willingness to invest in the tools needed to do so. Too many websites/portals- There are about 10 different sites/tools/systems/etc.. It is extremely confusing when you start out and far too complicated.
