    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.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and many perks (ping pong, company lunches, etc.). Located conveniently on Michigan Ave. right across from the Art Institute. Highland feels like an intimate small business, but they offer big opportunities. You will work with clients of all sizes, on a variety of projects.

    The culture, staff and current leadership make Highland an incredible place to work. Big talent—great vision. My supervisor in particular is the type of leader that compels people to “dream big.” Overall, Highland leadership exemplifies transparency and honesty.

    I have recommended this company to friends.

    Cons

    Not recognizing (sooner) the drain negative employees have on the team.

    Advice to Management

    I'm encouraged by your effort to keep staff informed of business direction, milestones and overall vision. The only advice I have at this time is to continue to improve the new team member on-boarding experience.

    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 Management

    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.
