Company Updates

  • June 19th is a day that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. To honor and celebrate this landmark holiday, we connected with members of North Highland's Black Employee Network to discuss Juneteenth and what it means to them, why it’s so important and how we can all recognize Juneteenth.

  • We are heartbroken. We are angry. We are upset. North Highland pledges to listen, learn and act, as shared in an employee message from Managing Director & President Alex Bombeck, highlights of which we are sharing on our website.

North Highland – Why Work With Us?

We are makers. We are born leaders with a challenger spirit and we believe the future is ours to build. Makers have a mantra: Unleash Potential Together. It’s what we strive to do – for our colleagues, clients, and communities – each and every day.

Our best work happens when we bring our diverse expertise around one table. We don’t just talk about a better future, we’re building it now, by empowering people to achieve what they didn’t think was possible. We’re different because we’re not in it for the glory. Never have been. We’re in it to build capabilities, with a human-centered approach and a bias for action.

We work together differently. We care for and support each other.

It is a way of working that blends personal conviction and inspired collaboration. It values different perspectives as opportunities to challenge convention.

To make our mark, we need courage and conviction from both our abilities as individuals and our power as a team. We choose our talents – of ingenuity, divergent thinking and relentless determination—to make the future better for all.

We don’t just talk about a better future – we’re building it now, by empowering people to achieve what they didn’t think was possible. Four ways of working guide our efforts and connect us in purpose.

Own It

This is our firm, and its success is our success. Every day we act as owners, leaders, and role models to grow the firm collectively and our capabilities individually.

Relationships First

Mediocrity is not an option. We set high standards for ourselves, and the people with whom we work. We expect excellence and guarantee satisfaction with our work.

Think Big

We challenge ourselves to stretch and shape each other’s thinking to deliver lasting change and true value.

Learn +  Teach

Building and sharing knowledge is our superpower. We develop ourselves, learn from others and generously share what we know.

North Highland Academy

The Academy is a program for analysts, consultants, and senior consultants to develop their consulting capability and grow their careers at North Highland, with firm-wide support from executive leadership and talent management. As a North Highland Academy consultant, you will:

  • Build a career in management consulting
  • Make building and sharing knowledge a superpower
  • Embrace different perspectives as opportunities to challenge convention 
  • Adopt our shared vision and Maker mentality 
  • Make communications a core capability 
  • Step-up and shine 


We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. Our end goal is to stop poverty before it starts and to do that, we must fix the root cause of poverty, not just its symptoms through disruptive new approaches.

We harness our consulting expertise to work with civic, non-profit and other experts in economic empowerment to develop partnerships with a focus on the power of taking a more holistic approach to economic empowerment. We'll support projects that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer-term impact.

Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities. Every year, we take all 1,500 employees out of our 23 global offices and put them in local communities to serve.

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


    Lots of autonomy for those that want it, but support when you need it
    The firm is listening to employees and working to improve and adapt
    Everyone has been amazing to work with
    Fun clients and cool projects that we get to work on
    Lots of flexibility and good work-life balance


    The only thing I would list as a con would be the amount of change the firm went through over an 18 month period which ended about a year ago. Leadership listened to employees and has adapted its approach to change and is very interested in making people happy.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the plan and shape your mindset towards some level of risk-taking and growth.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at North Highland.


    Phone interview with recruiter, phone interview with lead, recruiter calls to check in & invite you to the final round which is a series of 3 in person interviews back to back on the same day. First interview is behavioral so lots of questions like “tell me about a time when...”, second interview is about your resume, & the third is a mini case study.
