I worked at Salient Partners full-time (More than a year)
Some of the managers and staff are very friendly. Office is located in the Galleria area, which gives you plenty of places to choose for lunch.
I think the worst aspect of this place is how much they 'look their noses down at you'. A very arrogant bunch lead this group (and otherwise work there). What's annoying is that some of the very senior people absolutely rode others coattails to get where they were (or otherwise had family money to begin with). Has a very 'high school' feel as it's an extremely 'cliquish' place to work. You very much have to stroke egos of senior management if you hope to move up anywhere. Also, the company did away with raises for most employees. So now, unless you're one of the "fortunate few" (a quote from an actual email from one of the very senior 'leaders' at Salient) you will not receive any kind of COLA, bonus, etc going forward. Company is NOT family friendly (unless, once again, you're a senior officer or in good with one). Non-existent work life balance, as every week another 'high priority' project would be assigned. I had to miss several events with my family b/c this 'life or death' project just had to get done ASAP Benefits are poor. The cost of medical insurance is very high. The medical they offer isn't even accepted at some medical facilities. Also, 401k match is the least of any company I've worked with. Just wasn't a pleasant place to work overall.
Advice to Management
There's a reason you've had so much turnover in personnel over the past several years.
