    I worked at North Highland full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People really care about the company, bonuses are good

    Cons

    Low base salary, well under the market. Small branch leadership can be very poor. They are trying to be a business consulting company, but are mostly a business project management firm. Majority of the work is staff augmentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen branch leadership, build a brand where employees don't have to do staff augmentation work all day and business development all night.

    I have been working at North Highland full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consulting work, with out weekly travel
    Incredible people - some of the best I've ever worked with
    Vision for how they will evolve the company and continue to maintain the culture
    Sparks Grove could be a game changer in the Marketing Services arena

    Cons

    Not very well known in the market, outside of Atlanta - though we are putting emphasis on changing that.

    Low base salary, comparatively. Bonus structure is nice, but it can be hard to figure out how to make it work for you and hard to completely realize until you get embedded on an account and begin to build relationships within NH and on the client side

    Loosing a lot of good talent b/c of salary.

    Trying to get away from staff aug work, but seems that this has been harder to do - especially at some clients - than we would like.

    Promotion process is not as transparent as it could be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the culture
    Fix the salary problem at manager / sr. manager level
