Started by a guy called Ron. After he called several consulting companies for a job and said 'I am Ron'. They said 'who Ron'! That's when he decided to start Huron (who Ron)!

Had two friends let go from there within the last few months: sounds like lots of layoffs. Here's a quote from Glassdoor from back in April to give further context: "Management continues to tell employees that they are done with layoffs but they've gone through THREE rounds in the past year. I have a feeling its not over. University recruits are signing on to a full time job with you and getting laid off just months after they start. If I had this information when I was interviewing, I wouldn't have accepted an offer. You're supposed to take care of your people, and you didn't even try."

As far as Huron... I was initially skeptical when a recruiter claimed that Huron was the "largest EPM/BI firm in North America". After mentioning this to colleagues, it seems that this is the case if you add in the qualifier "EPM/BI in the education industry". I may be wrong there. Nonetheless, that statement, which seemed unfounded, stirred me wrong

I've been here a few years and generally like the job and tbe people I work with. I think it does vary by practice though. My experience (healthcare practice) has been interesting work, decent pay, and better work life balance than most Big 4 people seem to have.

Previous Huron employee here. Stay away.

@K1 and @E2 - what makes you say that?

Stay away, likely setting themselves up for a sale with the continued layoffs. Have also had two friends (excellent, smart guys) let go in the last few months).

Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen). It’s for a biz ops role and the recruiter said the call would be just behavioral. Wondering if anyone got case/problem solving questions in the first round or if those were for the final round. Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻
