    Good people, poor platform

    Senior Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsGood work/life balance and senior management are flexible around personal needs
    Very bright people at the junior levels
    Get to work on interesting projects

    ConsSpotty deal flow
    Competence among senior management is hit or miss
    Poor people management (e.g., no training, inconsistent performance reviews, hiring when slow, lay-offs just before landing engagements)
    Culture tangentially tied to Highland Capital

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to determine strategic vision for firm (i.e., determine what it is that you do)
    Hire the right senior people to sell and execute on vision
    Develop better people management practices

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
