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

Pros

I have worked in the financial services industry for over seven years in New York, New Jersey, and Texas. I am the most impressed with the employees at Highland Capital Management, L.P. ("Highland"). The people that work at Highland are motivated, intelligent, helpful, and know what they are doing. The teams are kept pretty lean so everyone has an important role in helping the firm meet its goals. There is also room to transition into other areas. The benefits and perks are outstanding - free healthcare, generous 401(k), free gym membership, free parking, free lunch every day, fully stocked kitchen, etc. Highland also holds firm events and quarterly team events so you get to know people outside of your immediate team.

Cons

The floor plan is open concept so it can get pretty loud, which makes concentrating and phone calls difficult at times.

    Pros

    One of the greatest things about Highland is that you get exposure to upper management no matter what your level is in the company. The work environment is challenging but rewarding and pushes you to learn and grow in your position. This allows for many opportunities for advancement in your career. The benefits offered at Highland are top-notch! The office is very open and inviting which makes me happy to come here every morning.

    Cons

    Highland has very high expectations for all of its employees and their work. This isn't exactly a con but it something to be prepared for when looking to work at the firm.

    I worked at Highland Capital full-time

    Pros

    free health insurance, lunch, parking, gym membership & cell phone plan

    Cons

    Incestuous place where everyone is having office affairs & no one cares, including HR! Step on others to get ahead. No ethics shown by leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like servants. Reward them with a carrot instead of beating them with a stick.
