    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HiQ

    Pros

    Great conferences and investments in the people that work there.

    Cons

    Have not renewed itself at at in the last 15 years. Same old business model in a steadily more aggressive market and space.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new thinking going. Steadily decreasing margins. Move forward or die.

    I have been working at HiQ full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I've been working at HiQ for 5 years and quite enjoy working here. - Great culture with music as a main focus - Nice colleagues - Strategic employer branding - HiCollege - HiQ education program is so fantastic so employees get changes to learn something new. - Fantastic conference trip abroad.

    Cons

    - Pretty low salary compared to other consultancy companies. - Growing up but not guarantee good consultants. - Many people sitting in between project without assignments.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at HiQ full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    A lot of very interesting and friendly people. I have never worked anywhere else with so many likable people than there are at HiQ. Good event staff who organise in-house training, excellent conferences and company parties. Supportive management with relatively little politics and back-stabbing. Stable finances with many many quarterly reports in a row with positive cash flow.

    Cons

    There is a pretty hard cap on salary development. HiQ has a lot of frame agreements with large customers that limits the potential income for consultants. HiQ needs some new profitable business areas to give the company a lift.

    Advice to Management

    It could be time to stop playing safe and risk some negative numbers for a few quarters in order to invest in new technologies, training and business development.
