North Highland – Why Work For Us?

Unleashing Potential Together™. This is our vision. What we want to be famous for. It’s what we strive to do for our clients. Every day. And for our people and those in the communities around us too.

Potential is defined as “capable of being but not yet in existence.” We know it’s within, eager to get out. By combining our strengths, collaborating together and always doing the right thing, we empower our clients, our colleagues and our communities to reach new heights. To go beyond what was thought possible.

North Highland is a global management consulting firm known for helping clients solve their most complex challenges related to customer experience, performance improvement, technology and digital and transformation. We add value and support our clients across the full spectrum of consulting, from strategy through delivery. We bring the big ideas, then we make them real.

North Highland is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, with more than 3,000 consultants worldwide and 60+ offices around the globe. The firm is a member of Cordence Worldwide (, a global management consulting alliance. 

We are an employee-owned firm that is regularly recongized nationally and locally as a best place to work. Come see how we Unleash Potential Together!

Looking for average? Happy to follow? Sorry, you’re in the wrong place! Want something different? Now we’re talking! We are a team of collaborative,engaged professionals who care deeply about our work, clients, communities, and each other.


We change the way our clients think about consulting, and are a different type of consulting firm – and have been since day one. We believe that people are more important than revenue. Client satisfaction is the benchmark by which we gauge our success. Since we are employee-owned we have a different perspective - forging relationships that go beyond merely transactional.

Working at North Highland is unlike working anywhere else. Relationships matter to us; not only with our Global Fortune 500 clients but among each other. We are collaborative, highly engaged and most importantly we care about our work. And, because we are owners of the firm, we do the right things for our clients and for one another.

At North Highland, we believe that our employees do their best when they have a balance between their professional and personal lives. It’s a refreshing approach that puts professionals in control of their life and career. We focus on results, and offer flexible career tracks so our professionals are better equipped to juggle modern life.

At North Highland, employees are trusted to expand their skill set and develop their expertise as forward thinking individuals. As a new hire, you will embark on the ‘First Year’ journey where you will learn what it means to be an owner of the firm, what it means to our clients, to what it means to our firm. We want you to live and breathe our culture. You own the decisions that affect your career.

At North Highland, we are all owners of the firm. Our ownership culture positively shapes how we serve our clients. As owners, we’re motivated to help each other build our firm’s future on the long-term success of our clients. We treat each other with the utmost respect – so there are no jerks allowed. And our entrepren
eurial spirit keeps us striving to solve complex problems for our clients’ toughest challenges.


We value the expertise of our employees. This is why we invest in a robust program to build skills, share understanding and encourage professional growth. From in-house coaching to participation in industry workshops, seminars and roundtables, we offer an array of resources to help our people expand their knowledge base.


We offer one of the most comprehensive benefits package available. Our Global Employee Stock Ownership Plan (GESOP) is a plan you won’t find at other firms, and our matched 401K plan comes with immediate vesting. Robust insurance plans, flexible work arrangements, and generous paid time off lets employees relax and focus on life’s priorities.


We truly value our differences – including gender, ethnicity, age, and lifestyle – we welcome a variety of perspectives not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it leads to better relationships and more creative solutions for our clients. That recognition forms the basis for our approach to diversity and inclusion, and inspires us to continue to build an open and inclusive work environment.



Giving back to our communities means  everything to us and  we actively support the local charities that our consultants and clients call home. Around the world, every North Highland office is inspired to make their community a better place. From helping children with disabilities in London, to supporting the local food banks in Los Angeles, we donate our time to designated charities and community groups.

    I have been working at North Highland full-time (More than 8 years)


    Fantastic clients, impactful high value work and outstanding colleagues. Truly a culture of care. The combination of our strong account model and the expertise of so many is working.


    Too much change that is taking too long.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, but hurry and finish some of the internal projects. Celebrate the wins (external - both BD and delivery and internal ). Keep the focus on our people and their development.

    I applied online. I interviewed at North Highland.


    Underwent six interviews. One onsite, the remainder were on the phone. It would have been nice to meet more of the local office teams and business partners I'd interact with to get a better feel for the culture. The interview process wasn't as cumbersome as other firms..
