    I worked at Discovia full-time (More than 5 years)


    I’d like to add some balance to the overly positive and negative reviews on this site. First and foremost, this is an eDiscovery vendor – the hours will be long and you will have to deal with quickly changing situations and a very steep learning curve. That said, Discovia does a good job of training people and trying to distinguish themselves from the rest of their competition. They are also very process oriented and put a lot of thought into making systems more efficient. If you can find a mentor here you will benefit greatly and it can be a transformative experience. The people here are very bright, friendly, and willing to help you learn. The skills you learn here will set up the next step in your career very well. Overall, I had a positive experience though I was frustrated towards the end.


    The hours are long and you will have to give up nights, weekends, and holidays more frequently than you expect. The compensation is significantly below market along with the benefits. There is minimal HR presence and the managers of each department will have their own fiefdoms within the company – which leads to significant disparities. The job descriptions/titles are a joke. As a result, getting promoted takes politicking to an extreme level and management will do everything they can to squeeze the last drop out of you before finally giving you what you deserved months ago. There are no annual reviews and it is difficult to know where you stand – unless you are underperforming and you’re about to get fired. This leads to a great deal of frustration for those who want to climb the ladder and gives an out to management to delay said climb. Middle management means well, but they lack the experience to make the rank and file’s lives better and more productive. Taken together, this results in high turnover due to internal problems but also due to fluctuations in their cash flow (during my tenure here, there were 3 significant layoffs but this was consistent with the industry's turbulence generally).

    Advice to Management

    Please institute a formal review system so that employees know a) where they stand b) what they need to do to move up and c) what to improve upon. Focus on improving people’s salaries and quality of life so you can retain talent rather than being an incubator of talent (except for the very few who stay due to their progression). Hold management accountable and implement a more pro-active management system as opposed to the reactive one currently in place. The “groupthink” that goes on at this company is counterproductive and will ultimately result in the competition moving ahead of you. The opportunities in the eDiscovery space are increasing and you will have to do more to retain your high performers – if that is truly what you want to do.
