    Current Employee - Attorney: Document Review
    Current Employee - Attorney: Document Review

    I have been working at UnitedLex as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work hours are flexible. You get to work with good people.

    Cons

    There is no stability. They can't predict when a project will be done. You work at a station located in a pod with 10 - 15 other attorneys. They go long periods of time without projects, which is most likely attributable to huge expansion and sending work to foreign countries. Project Managers head a project from beginning to end. A Document Review Attorney is never given any positive feedback. I have seen Document Review Attorneys given negative feedback. Feedback to a Document Review Attorney is given by a "Quality Control Reviewer" in front of all other Document Reviewers present in the "pod." A "Quality Control Reviewer" is in charge of a selected number of Document Review Attorneys. They don't appear to earn any additional money. While a Document Review Attorney might believe that becoming a Quality Control Reviewer would be the next step in career progression to "Project Manager," this does not appear to be the case. There does not appear to be any written criteria for becoming a "Quality Control Reviewer," and Project Managers have never explained how a Document Review Attorney progresses to become a Quality Control Reviewer. Selection criteria appears to be based on favoritism. "Quality Control Reviewers" receive instruction and guidance from the "Project Manager." A Quality Control Reviewer's understanding of project parameters is highly subjective and the information disseminated to Document Review Attorneys varies widely between individual Quality Control Reviewers. They have an aura of authority and typically spend large amounts of time aimlessly debating and dissecting review criteria amongst themselves. These discussions occur out in the open and in the presence of all Document Review Attorneys who might be present in the pod. These rambling discussions do not follow any structured decisional analytical progression and most often leads to a decision or guidance to a Document Review Attorney which is artfully ambiguous or ingenuously obtuse. The resultant confusion causes many Document Review Attorneys to escalate the issue to the Project Manager, who in turn must wait on clarification from another source, which may only come days later. Lost time and productivity appears self inflicted as there are multiple undefined layers of personnel who appear to be performing redundant processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of business/consistent projects is not a good sign. May be attributable to excess overhead and lack of competitiveness, leading to a loss of market share.
