Nice place to relax in consulting
MANAGER (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 25, 2013
Pros: work life balance
Cons: salary, admin, quality of colleagues, learning opportunities
Typical day is 9 hours, staff augmentation like, very project management focused. Feels like a staffing company more than a consultancy.
The firm is very friendly and family like. A strong 'people' culture that values relationships and tenure more than competence/expertise.
The company has grown significantly since its founding in early 90s by three – more... founders. Now it's around 1,000 US consultants. However, the leadership that brought it here won't get the company where it wants to go.
Hardest part of the job is all the administrivia that takes place since it doesn't have a very strong shared services function and lacks the robust knowledge management and cumulative expertise that big firms have developed over time.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the people. Very nice. But it feels like folks who couldn't hack it at a big company, not experienced folks that no longer wanted to work at big firms (or didn't want to anymore because they couldn't hack it). – less

Team-oriented, relationship-based consulting company with emphasis on work/life balance
Manager (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 3, 2013
Pros: work-life balance, team-oriented, clients typically place high-value on personalities and work output. low or no travel.
Cons: compensation is below market
North Highland takes a different approach to consulting. They work with large, global organizations across a variety of service areas, but tend to "be sticky" within a client account and strive in using local consultants whenever possible. This limits the burden of travel, and allows for the challenges and experiences of consulting without the tax of – more... being away for home on an ongoing basis. The company is 100% employee-owned, emphasizing a strong family and team-oriented approach to management. You will experience a wide variety of projects, as being no-travel/low-travel means you work on what's available with the companies in your metro area, and don't fly to the next project in a very-focused vertical. – less
