We generally find almost all of our new hires through referrals. If you know of someone who works for North Highland, they can probably pass your resume along to the right person. It seems like we are almost always hiring and if you are willing to go the city where the work is, and have the right experience, you'll almost certainly get an interview out of it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at North Highland in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was a series of one-on-one discussions, but not very hard, just to talk about my experience and in some cases, sell me as much about the firm versus me selling them on my skills

    My advice to people - make sure you understand the comp process - it sounds amazing initially, then when you go back and try to do the math yourself, it seemingly comes up short.

    Reasons for Declining

    Their comp system is ridiculously below scale - if you are a burned out consultant from the major consultancies, then you'll probably find all the work/life, no travel perks to be worth the cut, but in this case, I was looking at having to take a pay cut. That, and the comp growth after you enter is spotty at best

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at North Highland in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    The people in the company are really great. I lacked trust in the local leadership of the Houston Office. At the beginning of my time with the company there was a real feeling of ownership at all levels of the team. As new leadership came in, it began to feel more like and Accenture Office...you were only included in decisions/leadership if you were a Pricipal or above. The hiring process included three interviews and some light personality testing.

    Interview Questions
    • Required an experience where I had sold business in a consulting environment, which was limited for me.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was not much that could be done to the salary bands for any role, but I negotiated a start-up bonus net $5,000.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at North Highland in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Agree with other comments here. Hiring managers were indecisive and clueless about what they wanted in the role and kept delaying follow-up interviews. The interview questions were very easy. When asked about how I would help grow business I was interrupted and told about firm's plans for aggressive growth and never allowed to finish. When asked about what acquisition record was I was told they had made a "major strategic acquisition" in Midwest. I researched it and learned it was a four-person office. Major?

    Some real disconnects. The compensation structure was confusing. The client service structure which rigidly discourages out of town travel is peculiar and can't be efficient. I didn't want to be out of town 28 days a month but for client service purposes it may be necessary to be at out of state client location a few days a month. If I can bill it and client wants it, why would company discourage it?

    Very disappointing. I think there is a bigger role for this company but need more dimensional leadership.
