I have been working at Highland Capital full-time (Less than a year)
The company is a great fit for people who are willing to put in the work while achieving results. There are some extremely smart people working throughout all levels of the company. I mention this because it's a fairly flat organization in terms of communication and cooperation. This includes exposure to upper levels of management.
I wouldn't necessarily call this a negative, but it should be pointed out that exposure to senior-level management also implies a high level of accountability.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Highland Capital (Dallas, TX).
The interview process was thorough and included a phone interview and two office visits with several in-person interviews. I also completed a take home case study. The Recruiting team was professional. I got a good feel for the office culture and the caliber of employees during the interviews. Now that I work here I can vouch that the interviewers honestly answered all my questions. The process is rigorous, but fair.
