    I have been working at Highland Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch, very high bonuses comparatively, smart people, great office, promotes often, exposure to a lot of different sectors/investment types/people, ability to transfer to different departments

    Cons

    Firm growth stalled a little for the last few years. Past PR issues hurt the firm's reputation but that has been healing.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps focus on a specific investment vehicle type centered around what the firm is best at, CLOs & maybe secondary CLOs. There is a lot of growth potential and ability to continue to strive when focusing on an area of expertise.
