I worked at Highland Solutions full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Nice, caring staff. Holidays and evenings (usually) off. Pleasant office space with nice lake views.

Cons

Ownership promotes a "wonderful culture" which turns out to be an excuse to over-control, underpay, overwork and not promote. And Note that if your role gets too valuable to the company, you may suddenly find yourself not "fitting in" the culture. But don't worry all the opportunities you brought to the company will remain with the company. Also saw this same opportunistic pattern with company's strategic partners including taking their clients away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some coaching on how to communicate, relate, enroll and encourage employees, or stop confusing people by pretending you care. With no change you will have trouble keeping your good staff now the economy has improved.

    Pros

    A great place to work with smart, energetic and fun people. A great culture of transparency, vulnerability and encouragement. Ideas are welcomed and information is shared regularly about company performance and client experiences.

    Cons

    The business is growing quickly and can sometimes challenge work/life balance. But it is clear that the company does not want you to sacrifice family for work.
