I have been working at Barrier Advisors

ProsInteresting deal flow and vey good work to life balance. People are great to work with and tend to be laidback

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on more marketing to smoothen out deal flow. Lessen the relationship and dependence on highland capital for deal flow

Good people, poor platform

Senior Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at Barrier Advisors

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
