Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at North Highland as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Compensation is good
Benefits are excellent and affordable
My recruiter stayed in touch and was as concerned with my satisfaction as with my performance

Cons

Since the RIF, good luck getting in touch with your new recruiter (especially if you're between assignments)

Advice to Management

Viewing your resources as people rather than commodities is what set you apart fro the other consulting firms out there. You're starting to lose that.

    I have been working at North Highland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Majority of the employees are genuine and hard working
    - Emphasis on community involvement
    - For the most part, limited travel
    - Generally, provide great value to the client

    Cons

    - Lower than industry standard salaries
    - Too much busy work outside the client engagements
    - Most VP’s are administrators with poor consulting acumen
    - Recent turnover of some of the strongest consultants
    - Due to the company’s focus on increasing sales, an undertone of back stabbing
                    has emerged in order to meet sales targets

    Advice to Management

    - Increase salaries by 25% for consultants across all levels and maintain the current
                    bonus structure
    - Remove some of the layers of executives (i.e., 2 Presidents, Multiple Group VP’s,
                    etc.)
    - Set VP utilization on projects at 30% to ensure that they have\maintain consulting
                    skills
