ATLANTA, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- North Highland, a global management and technology consulting company, has been recognized as one of the world's best consulting firms to work for, based on a 2009 global survey conducted by Consulting Magazine.
North Highland ranked fourth on the magazine's list, marking the third consecutive year the company has appeared in the top five rankings of major consulting firms. Others in the top five are Bain & Company, McKinsey & Company, The Boston Consulting Group, and Booz Allen Hamilton.

He added that North Highland differs from most large consulting firms because it is employee-owned, focuses on local markets, and guarantees its work. North Highland was founded in 1992.
Consulting Magazine anonymously surveyed thousands of employees at more than 200 companies, asking them to rate their firms in six categories: Job, Compensation and Benefits, Leadership, Career Development, Culture and Work/life Balance.

"I believe everyone works harder when they know the end goal. Our people take a great deal of pride in the work they do and in the real, measurable results we provide to our clients.
"Culture and leadership are tested in tough times, not when the industry is growing at 15 percent," said Reardon. "In today's economy, receiving such high ratings from our employees is truly rewar
