This past June the Dallas Business Journal named its list of best places to work. This is something it does every year. In the category of companies with a workforce of between 50 and 249 employees the Dallas-based Highland Capital Management was given the top honors as the best such place to work in 2015. A huge part of the reason Highland is number one in this category is because the company places such a high priority and emphasis on getting employees active in the community and in various charities. President and co-founder James Dondero has said that in conjunction with this is creating the highest quality workforce possible.
The magazine considers several hundred different companies when compiling the list. Those compiling the lists interview every single one of the employees at all of these establishments. In the end, Highland claimed victory in the 2015 contest. Highland is a firm that boasts around $22 billion worth of assets. It was founded in 1993 by James Dondero and Mark Okada and has since grown into one of the largest investment firms in the world. Highland is fully equipped and knowledgeable about assisting with any kind of assets situation including wealth management, public pension planning, foundations, endowments, corporations, institutions, governments, and individual help.
Highland is a globally growing company. It presently has offices in Dallas, New York, Sao Paulo, Singapore, and Seoul. Its offices have just begun trading in ETFs (Exchange Trading Fund).

They have three brands available and have an additional 17 planned. However, this is not the end of the road for them.
