I have been working at Highland Capital full-time (Less than a year)
- people complain about the work life balance but this is no different than any other financial services firm
- take great care of employees with dining options, 401k, healthcare, generous vacation
- very collaborative environment, if you need to get something done there are not many road blocks, everyone is working together
- no cons as of now
Advice to Management
keep up the good work it's a great firm and excited to see the continued growth
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Highland Capital (New York, NY) in September 2016.
I interviewed by phone with the Director of Quant Department. Went through the resume and then asked around 5-6 technical questions, including basic concepts of risk, probability theory, time series, including some calculations.
