    I worked at North Highland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people work there
    Company tries to implement new policies/initiatives to allow for personal/professional growth - thought process in right place
    Some leadership is very motivating and appreciative
    Company associated with larger, well-known consulting firm

    Cons

    Hire managers w/o enough exp to lead Sr. level employees
    Some of the leadership is lazy and not involved with what is really going on
    Some non-management employees are exalted above others and allowed to circumvent standard rules and procedures
    Political environment
    Rarely promote from within
    Too much turnover
    Poor communication company-wide
    Implement programs for professional/personal growth - talk about them for years but nothing is ever offered unless you are one of the original employees
    Internal competition between 2 divisions within this company - after same business and candidates

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you hire to manage your teams. Managers should have years of prior experience and a "get in the ditch and roll up your sleeves" mentality. Work on better motivational techniques, most managers tend to lead via email - very impersonal. If you offer professional growth via training, education reimbursement and promotions...than do it...don't just talk about it.
