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

Pros

- Highland hires only the best candidates and it shows. The people are brilliant, talented and hard-working. You can learn a ton from your fellow employees.
- The skills and knowledge you gain by working at Highland allow you to advance your career as far as you want it to go.
- The pay and benefits (paid healthcare, free lunches, fully stocked snack room, paid cell phone, gym membership, etc.) are second to none.
- Overall, Highland is one of the best places to work in the industry.

Cons

The required 50-hour weekly average. This isn't much different than other companies in the industry, but just know going in that this isn't a 40 hour per week job.

    I worked at Highland Capital full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Free lunch. Healthcare.
    Great exposure to everything - you will get more responsibility than you are ready for and need to figure it out. Sink or swim type of deal.

    Cons

    Not much to say that people haven't already mentioned. Lots of forced hours even when it is slow. Awkward culture and personal relationships. Politics wins the day.

    "Highland Capital Management as a Destination Workplace"

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

    Pros

    The company is a great fit for people who are willing to put in the work while achieving results. There are some extremely smart people working throughout all levels of the company. I mention this because it's a fairly flat organization in terms of communication and cooperation. This includes exposure to upper levels of management.

    Cons

    I wouldn't necessarily call this a negative, but it should be pointed out that exposure to senior-level management also implies a high level of accountability.
