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

    Pros

    The firm is very employee-centric and is very deliberate about maintaining it's culture - even through times of transformation. The work is challenging and there are an abundance of opportunities to shape your own development and work on the types of things that interest you. The firm is also growing and there is excellent upward mobility for performers.

    Cons

    The firm regularly executes change initiatives which can be disruptive at times, and will also sometimes implement well-meaning initiatives without fully thinking through all the implications.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on deliberate growth and do whatever it takes to keep the tight-knit, entrepreneurial culture that built this company.

    Pros

    Access to NH executives and marquee companies
    Clear about values
    flexibility and balance

    Cons

    Coming through a time of change, hard for people with tenure, not so hard if you are new, but there are pockets of people with change fatigue

    Advice to Management

    Further transparency to the larger firm and continue to focus and drive firm direction and strategy - articulate the north star and the next stop (both)

    I worked at North Highland full-time

    Pros

    Still some good people hanging on
    Some positions require minimal travel

    Cons

    Leadership cares more about their personal wealth than their clients or people
    Culture has shifted from team oriented to toxic
    Bench policies could mean your are let go for a few weeks unassigned
    Watch out for fake reviews that the company may be asking people to write
    Since April they have artificially pumped positive reviews - is business that much better to go from 2.6 to 3.1 from June to Sept? and CEO approval from 30% to 51%.

    Advice to Management

    When is it time for a new CEO and Executive Team?

    I have been working at North Highland full-time

    Pros

    I have 13 years experience and worked for numerous companies and can say I see myself staying her for a very long time. They have a great training and learning program, solid benefits, everyone is eager to help, work life balance is great, I'm challenged yet I receive all the tools and resources I need to be successful. I read other reviews and don't understand some of the grievances. This company has been around since 1992 and some of the biggest corporations in the world use NH so clearly it's doing something right.

    Cons

    They don't offer free lunch like other companies I've worked for but I think I'll survive :)

    I worked at North Highland full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Only wish I would have left sooner.

    Cons

    First, let’s start with the required employee postings. The reader should simply ignore these binge postings (most recently, Aug 2018). They are inaccurate, fail to convey NH’s toxic climate, and at times were written under duress.

    Overall, NH is a complete disaster. Don’t need to reminisce about how NH started or the early years. There are plenty of executive-led failures in recent years all resulting in dissatisfied clients, failed projects, exodus of quality talent, plummeting sales, and shrinking margins. Last but not least, they directly caused the evaporation of the ESOP and NH’s long-term well-being. Until the CEO is replaced (along with his cronies), NH will continue its downward spiral.

    Run away and stay away. If you are desperate for a job, work at NH for a paycheck, but find another job asap so that neither you nor your resume are tarnished by your time at NH.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point. Their ears went deaf a long time ago.
