    Pros

    Offers benefits, smaller company allows for more interaction with company management, more positions are opening up

    Cons

    Lack of benefits choices and expensive, salaries could be more competitive

    Advice to Management

    More transparency and communication between HQ and employees in the field would help resolve a lot of confusion and issues that employees may (or often) have

    We have some new employee perks and benefits. We understand that you may not feel as connected, due to you working on-site. As we continue to grow, we will keep this in mind.

    -Way too many girl scout cookies in the office. I have zero willpower.

    Pros

    - Management is readily accessible
    - Great opportunities for professional development

    Cons

    - No real concrete path for advancement is laid out
    - Small company with a short bench; meaning when your project is over, you're gone

    Advice to Management

    You need to have an in writing, concrete path that lays out what employees need to do to be promoted. Also have some sort of structure around job titles.

    Pros

    This is the best job I've had thus far in my career and the company does a great job at listening to their employees. You normally get a response pretty fast if you have a question into management and I feel very secure in my job.

    Cons

    Our activity tracker program just got dropped! But that is small in the scheme of things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thanks for sending out those surveys periodically. You guys seem to address the feedback which is wonderful. It'd be great to see a new activity incentive come back into the health insurance program- a few of us are bummed about that stopping. But otherwise, thank you.

    Pros

    Company has good intentions and tries to create a very friendly and open-minded atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits could be more competitive; company needs to focus on a particular line(s) of business/niche vs trying to go out for any kind of business; get really connected with staff just not superficially connected so that they are [really] in tune with concerns of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen earnestly and digest the information being provided opposed to applying surface resolves for underlying mismanagement and/or company indecision.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our company. Employee satisfaction is very important to us, because our employees are our company.

    As you mentioned our intentions are good... More

    I worked at Highlight Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    HQ has family-type atmosphere. Good, occasional in-house training. Support for all employees working at customer sites from executive staff. Generous pay.

    Cons

    Health benefits are not the greatest, although the dental portion is very good. Not enough opportunity to move to other contracts (side effect of being a small company)

    Advice to Management

    Fight harder to keep entire staff on contract through base and all option years. Remind customers that they wrote the requirements of the contract and need to stick to the terms or write "agreed-upon" contract modifications.

    I worked at Highlight Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Location, holidays, pay, and being employed

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. Always looking for someone to blame and finding reasons to terminate you. Too much gossip and insincerity for my tastes. If you're a hard worker, you will just get more work and don't get recognized for going above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart

    Pros

    Highlight has a good focus on what they are there to provide and work to bring experts to the client. They have a generous spirit and support training and professional memberships. Though they are small they have enough new business being won that when a project ends you aren't cast out.

    Cons

    As a small company they are not always able to provide non technical support like graphics.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain specialization to find a niche. There are already too many jack of all trades companies in DC. But high performers are few and far between.

    Pros

    The people here are what make it so great. Everyone is focused, determined, and hard working. It has been a real eye-opener on what it takes to be successful in the real world. I have only been here a couple of months, but I feel like I have grown as a person because of the leadership and guidance. I love that I have a lot of responsibility and independence in an internship role. I feel that my opinions are heard and respected. This is a fun, challenging, and rewarding internship, and that is exactly what I was seeking.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons to report.
