Employee - Manager

Anythinmg for the next project

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Used to be a great firm. Culture was great. Leadership has steadily driven toward being a cookie-cutter Big 4 firm as they existed in the 90s. More staff augmentation type projects than true consulting in most locations and most accounts. May be able to recover, but not with current senior leadership.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Autocratic, which is odd given the historical precedent of being a collaborative type firm.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Trying to move closer to market on base and bonus, but still missing it. The lack of travel for most somewhat makes up for it, but there are other industry and consulting options which pay better, hence the departure of lot of employees. The ESOP, while a good idea, has turned out to be disappointing.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Can be / was very collegial and was driven by the charisma and capabilities of the founder and former leaders of the company. Not as true currently.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Reliable executor of someone else's strategy

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

North Highland has out grown their current model. The Health Care practice is dysfunctional with no direction or plan to grow.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

The current Health Care leadership is weak, the HC leader has never worked in any part of health care . The overall leadership cannot set a clear vision

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

A new comp model was implemented in 2015 . causing many consultants to leave the firm. No one in the HC practice has made their metrics for the year

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

they have no market reputation

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

NH uses a 4 quadrant matrix as a way to force people into a category that fits their needs vs the unique skill sets of the employee which is just a tool to get rid of people that don't kiss the butt of the boss.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Self-centered and only keep the people that kiss their ring.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Base comp is below market but they entice people with a fairly good deferred comp plan but usually fire you before you can reap the benefits.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

NH's culture is a good ole boy white men club with very few women or diversity members.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Many people that leave NH, don't even list them on their resume or on social media (LinkedIn).

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

No growth. They take pride that they don't have an "up or out" policy. Consequently, they don't feel obligated to help you grow or pay attention to your growth or recognize that you're ready for the next level.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Not trustworthy. All about their own growth. Lower level folks who are engine of the business are not taken care of properly. Sweat shop attitude.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Base is 40% lower than market rate to begin with. Bonus components are paid quarterly depending on personal utilization (hours billed to clients), sold revenue. Capped.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Since bonus is directly tied to billable hours... You lose all the bonus for at least one quarter or more depending on how you plan the vacation.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Culture used to be very good when the founders were running the show... Now it's under the ESOP/employee owned as original founders were bought out by the employees. Now it's all about value to North Highland vs value to clients... No longer ask the questions... What is the right thing to do? Are we doing the right thing?
