I worked at Highland Capital full-time

Pros

Great pay potential, fast-paced, strong benefits and perks. Nice new offices in Uptown Dallas. Some teams can be pretty fun, though not all.

Cons

Long hours. Small company, so not much potential for career variety, especially upward advancement. Management plays favorites and can make your life miserable if you cross the wrong person. Management also shows little trust in employees in excessive tracking with timekeeper system and other means.

Advice to Management

Provide more opportunities for career development, treat your employees with respect.
