    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Long periods where there is no work to do, as the principal consultants are ineffective

    Cons

    Stagnation, toxic environment. Bad rep since a former director guilty of medical fraud was fired/almost given an MBE by the honours committee

    Advice to Management

    Take the hit and get rid of principals who write emails to clients stating 'WTF?' and have a proverbial monkey clashing a symbol in place of a brain

    I worked at Huron Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    People in the office were good, work-life balance was very reasonable for a consulting company, clients were generally interesting, projects were mostly interesting (see below).

    Cons

    Some types of projects got repetitive. Executive management was uninspired and dull, and at times felt like was completely missing in action. Benefits were minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Listed company needs to mind the share price, but at times it felt like that was the only thing being watched. Quite uninspiring. Invest in your people, you are a consulting company.

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

    Pros

    There is not a lot of good that I can say about Huron. The LCG is focused on low value add activities that can be billed quickly. No real strategy or performance improvement work in their practice.

    Cons

    In order to succeed at Huron you need to sell a lot of low value work that you can premium bill. This usually means litigation support that you outsource to India.

    Advice to Management

    Need stronger focus on "value added" services for clients. Better professional development opportunities. Improved mentoring.
