    I have been working at Clutch Group full-time

    Pros

    Clutch is exciting, to say the least. There's always something going on, be it a new deal, a new technology, or a new way of looking at things. The job requires a lot of thinking on your feet and learning on the job. For a young person looking to build a skillset, this environment can't be beat. If you want something predictable and repetitious, look elsewhere. It's small enough where you get to know people across departments and offices, and people are always willing to lend a hand if you've got questions, even if they're not directly related to your line of duty. The company is definitely growing, and it's great to be a part of something that's making a real dent in a new market.

    Cons

    It can be hectic and disorganized sometimes - such is the nature of growth. You may work long hours for a few days in a row - maybe even a few weeks. That said, the culture is pretty flexible, and if you're not working on something and it's 2pm and you'd really like to go for a run, you can do that.

    Advice to Management

    More new business is critical to keeping the ball rolling. Make sure that the current team is really solidified and believes in the company's mission, and don't be afraid to keep taking risks and innovating to keep up with (or lead) this emerging market.

    Clutch is a dynamic and innovative company that is growing rapidly. The culture is collaborative and fast-paced, and the work is engaging and challenging. There is a lot of opportunity for career growth in the organization and people who work hard and excel move up quickly.

    As with many rapidly growing organizations there are times that it is tough to maintain a strong work-life balance.

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

    I worked at Clutch Group full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Clutch Group full-time

    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.
