    I worked at HighPoint Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Extensive Learning experience for senior candidates who want to work on multiple facets of an engagement.
    2. Less work pressure and relaxed projects

    Cons

    1. No mentors on career growth from managers to leaders.
    2. Sales is very stressful and new ideas are NOT welcome for senior management

    Advice to Management

    Look for people who can bring some vibrant ideas for senior leadership. Do not stick to the same old leaders who are traditional. Highpoint could have been a much larger business had it not been for some senior people and their egos.
