    Pros

    Smart, driven colleagues
    New challenges on a regular basis
    Collaboration/teamwork are hallmarks of the culture
    Independent thought and action valued
    Tremendous growth opportunity

    Cons

    With any growing company, there will be moments where the pace of change and influx of new employees tests the existing systems.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster independent/thought and action and offer positive reinforcement for hard work.

  2. Like all other document review companies, they don't really care about reviewers

    Pros

    Pay was relatively good. For the most part no one was on top of you or watching your back.

    Cons

    Senior Management kept a really poor assistant manager on for a long time, making huge problems in workflow.
    Company expansion led to hiring reviewers as permanent employees which led to them slacking off.
    As time went on, managers really dropped the ball on properly communicating with offices in other cities regarding project needs and protocols, which led to an end of reviews in NY.
    Company seemed to not want to pay at the end of the year for earned sick time as required by new NY Law.
    Company is too concerned with cutting costs even though their profits seem to be huge.

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, wonderful culture, fun and fast-paced environment, able to work in banking, medical device, and other fast-developing areas of commerce. Wonderful benefits and excellent pay. I am very happy to be working for Clutch Group and consider myself blessed to have this wonderful opportunity come into my professional life.

    Cons

    I really can't say anything bad about this company, the people are fantastic, there is a work-life balance, and best of all I can apply my legal skills and not work for a law firm.

    Pros

    Clutch Group is a catalyst for change in the legal and compliance market. We are a client-centric organization that has one goal, to help our clients reduce the noise and solve their most complex and data-driven challenges. Clutch Group is defined by an unparalleled group of creative, knowledgeable, and decisive professionals working across the most heavily regulated and highly litigious industries. On a daily basis, the management team is awe struck by the dedication, innovation and resourceful nature of the global team.

    Cons

    Our success has driven a culture of demand. This intensity and work culture can, unfortunately, infringe upon your personal life. However, we are actively working to fortify our support functions and to focus on work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    We need to replicate the same passion we bring to client satisfaction to employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    My coworkers are probably the people that I hand out with most, which is great. Everyone works hard, and everyone plays hard. You have a lot of freedom and flexibility to plot your own course and accomplish your goals-- and at the same time you have the opportunity to interact with the upper management at some of the largest companies in the world. Global travel is a definite plus. It's fun to be part of an innovative, growing company.

    Cons

    There is always work to do, so timetimes work-life balance is a challenge. Because Clutch is global with offices around the world, sometimes communication is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate effectively and often with teams; increase transparency.

    Pros

    Clutch Group is a great company to work for. Each day is different and the opportunities to handle projects and travel are endless. The company is growing rapidly in the last few years. The leadership team has a great vision for the future of the company.

    Cons

    The only con to working with the company is the unpredictability. With the right attitude and approach this is not an obstacle.

    Advice to Management

    The management are very passionate about the work that we do. They value and appreciate the employees and take the time to help those that are new to the company! It's a big company feel in a small community.

    Pros

    The people at Clutch can achieve the impossible. The work at Clutch is complex and interesting and is for very large clients. You get the opportunity to work with very senior executives at large banks. The pace of growth has been both an advantage and disadvantage, but it keeps things exciting! The people at Clutch are fun, intelligent and considerate. They are a diverse group and the company does support diversity. There are opportunities for growth from a compensation and title perspective. These opportunities are not spread over a long period of time, you can see substantial merit based growth within a few years. The senior management cares about the employees.

    Cons

    The company is a demanding (but rewarding) environment. The work is difficult and the hours can be very long. The pace of growth has made it difficult to scale individual employee and professional development plans but that appears to be a current focus. The CEO, Abhi Shah, plays no real role in the business and is distant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Good Work!!! Invest in your people. They will drive your revenue, profit, culture, and success.

    Pros

    -The company "gets it" - smartest people around in the legal technology and process space
    -Extremely friendly culture - my coworkers are people I'd actually be friends with "in real life"
    -Work for some very interesting, high profile clients -- front page of Wall Street Journal type of cases
    -Explosive growth recently, it's exciting (and potentially HUGELY rewarding) to be involved

    Cons

    -Growing so rapidly that workload can be intense at times
    -Chaos and stress (though, I will say expectations are reasonable and adjusted)

    Advice to Management

    Communication across project teams needs to an ongoing priority, especially during these fast-paced times.

    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced work environment. Everyone contributes from Day 1. Company is growing fast, providing great opportunity for growth. Good work is recognized and rewarded. Schedule can be demanding at times, but great flexibility in terms of when/where to work from, as long as you get the job done and meet deadlines. Lots of very ambitious, hard-working people; and my team in particular is great to work with.

    Cons

    Company is entirely focused on results and bottom-line at all costs. High turnover rate among associates and directors. As fast as its growing, the company will crumble quick if it doesn't do better to sustain and retain the most valuable of its employees. Must do better to provide for and encourage work/life balance. Lots of Type-A's leading to frequent office drama. Once they realize that happy employees lead to even greater productivity and higher margins, the possibilities are endless.

    Advice to Management

    Must do better to provide for and encourage work/life balance. Better Benefits. More Vacation Time.
