    Pros

    Over the past few years Clutch has transformed itself from a run of the mill staffing firm to a truly remarkable and innovative consulting practice group.

    Cons

    Very few...it is fast paced and expectations are high. Not necessarily a "con" though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    They pay fairly well for document review ($31 per hour). The work is fairly easy and most of the supervisors are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    They tend to leave you in the dark as long as possible, even with regards to your own position. The individual supervisors on projects seem great, but everyone working in the larger corporate scheme doesn't seem to care at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty.

    Pros

    The on-site managers were professional. The training was thorough and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The facility was also located in an easily accessible area of the city and the accommodations within the facility were good.

    Cons

    Not all of the management acted in a professional manner. The pay rate was also extremely low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect and hire decent people.

    Great place to work.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work there is because the pay is good and always on time! Communication was great, any question I had they always answered it.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides is that the job is temporary and that they pay little benefits after 6 months. But the reason is obvious because the job is temporary so I was not expecting more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not much to say but I would say that you have been doing an excellent job. Keep it up!

    Nothing Special

    Pros

    Clutch Group isn't particularly bad compared to other temporary staffing and legal service providers, they are all at the beck and call of the law firms.

    Cons

    They are definitely nothing special and do nothing to distinguish themselves from ever attorney chop shop around. They offer terrible benefits for longer term employees, don't maintain good connections with law firms, and have inattentive recruiting managers. They have been obsessed with making inroads into running document review from India, at the expense of their US practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should pay operational and good recruiting managers better, and keep those managers in order to build a stronger base to offer better client services.

    No So good if you want to make a career or maintain a work-life balance

    Current Employee - Associate  in  Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    Friendly People
    Decent Salary
    - It's becoming a BPO from an LPO :); so more job vacancy

    Cons

    -Forget a standard 9 hours job, you will have targets to fulfil, and those are set with a projection that you don't leave without working 2 hours extra.
    - Biased Managers; You must be a 'boot licker' to get a scope.
    - They will ask you to come to office on weekends too..and moreover there is no compensation paid, only that you get an additional leave for the day worked.
    - Your Manager/TL/ APM would prefer a stupid person to do a mature job than someone who is smarter; the reason being they don't want to be embarrassed of someone coming up with a smarter ways to resolve a query.
    - If you escalate an issue with the upper management, they will try to dodge you and send you back pointing out that you are looking at it from a wrong angle (with a smiling face).
    - A very long notice period (3 months) where the industry has a maximum of 1 month; They have ensured that you cannot get hired anywhere else as no other employer would wait for that time. Most companies hire with a 2 months heads up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the wickedness! People already had enough! All these while you were thinking why there is completely new work force every year and you thought extending the notice period is a solution?

    Pros

    good friendly colleagues and helpful

    Cons

    -Employees are considered as machines
    -Unfavorable leave policies
    -Unfair in treating all the employees
    -Personal problems does not have room for tolerance
    -Unbalanced mid-level management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can only retain an employee only when you care about them and not hideously pretend to care and as a matter of fact , the mean intentions are very obvious even if the employees do not speak upfront.
