Interesting company, small branches are not a good experience

Former Employee - Principal in Minneapolis, MN

I worked at North Highland full-time (less than a 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 worked at North Highland full-time

    Pros

    The story and culture of the firm feels great.
    Live, work an play locally.
    Rewards can be great at large and stable clients.
    Employee owners - a good stock plan that grows YoY.
    Employee has career control to determine work life balance.

    Cons

    A number of local offices outside of Atlanta are growth and management challenged.
    Weak offices have high client and employee turnovers. Rewards and advancement are impacted.
    Employee owners - 7 year vesting. low motivation for employee retention since stocks are distributed to remaining employees as an additional bonus when you leave.
    Selling is a requirement that will impact your bottom line and possibly employment.
    Choosing a good work life balance can translate to impacted reviews, rewards and advancement.
    Most projects end up being staff augmentation roles.
    Many leaders are generalist that lack depth and expertise which means selling staff aug roles.
    Little known outside Atlanta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain the real great employees and out with the entrenched leads that keep the firm a staff aug firm that is everything to everyone. Put the proud culture into practice to reward and retain employees.
