I worked at Barrier Advisors
Pros – Good work/life balance and senior management are flexible around personal needs
Very bright people at the junior levels
Get to work on interesting projects
Cons – Spotty 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 Management – Need 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
