    Pros

    The opportunity for motivated people to get their foot in the door of the eDiscovery industry. I'd give one star, but this did give me the jump start for my career.

    Cons

    Let me begin by saying eDiscovery is a hard industry to work in. The hours are long, the clients are more than demanding; anyone in the industry knows what I’m talking about. None of the below negatives pertain to the industry, I love working in eDiscovery. Nepotism, lack of promotions, minimal raises, compensation not even close to industry standard, unprofessional behavior by management, atrocious benefits and PTO. I worked here for over 2 years, during that time over 50 people turned over. Teams were smaller when I left than when I started. People were fired without warning. Referral candidates were chosen over qualified ones, then subsequently fired for being unqualified. This did not happen once or twice. This happened consistently with multiple candidates referred by a variety of people. Management restructures the departments every 3 months, which results in reviews being conducted by people who have never worked with you. Reviews are a joke - manager comments are positive, but number ratings are kept low because raises are based on the numbers. Management warned us on multiple occasions not to discuss compensation amongst ourselves. I left for a comparable position in the industry doubling my salary. Management matched the offer when I put in my two weeks. Let me be clear. This was not a 15% bump, this was a 100% increase.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure where to begin. Unresponsive HR, money wasting restructuring so that management has something to do, atrocious benefits and compensation, and above all, unprofessional and petty management.

    Pros

    Awesome Work/Life Balance and my boss has been an amazing person to speak to. Communication is key in this company and my boss and I communicate great. Compensation is also reasonable, but....

    Cons

    Compensation good, but the fact that I work at home after work and on weekends doesn't really balance. I don't get any overtime nor am I getting paid salary. Working this particular position it's almost impossible not to work at home. Insurance really sucks ... as for you and one child it's almost $200 every two weeks, and if you want the other plan which is $120 every two weeks...dental (you pay $150 off the jump, then you pay 10% of the bill after that) medical ($6000 deductible, preventive care is free, but anything other than that is 100% out of pocket until you pay at least $6000 then after that you pay 30% of the bill). Leave - You get vacation, sick, and bereavement. 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave, no parking discounts, no real benefits anywhere. They stick to the basics of the law, what they are "required" to give you and that's it. Employee appreciation is at an all-time LOW!

    Advice to Management

    keep going at this rate and you will lose many employees and fast. There are hundreds of companies out there offering what you aren't. Be Competitive!

    Pros

    Full-time, steady hours, the buildings typically have nice views. There is plenty of downtime to do your own stuff (IE schoolwork, internet, whatever)

    Cons

    Bad benefits, low pay, no communication from managers, there is too much downtime and you have to invent things to do to look busy.

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

    Pros

    It's an easy job for those who are okay working where you can't move up the corporate ladder. You will rarely have to do overtime- so if you're looking at a consistent schedule it's a plus.

    Cons

    Lied to about starting price and I was so desperate for a job I took it anyway. They will tell you that they love to promote from within but myself and MANY coworkers were looked over for promotions and growth within the company. Terrible management, lazy coworkers, and less than ideal job tasks. If you're looking for an easy job than take this, but if you want to keep your sanity go elsewhere. Loved the clients, and that was probably the best part about this job.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the hardworking and well-educated employees you have rather than keeping college dropouts in your management. PROPERLY TRAIN YOUR MANAGEMENT.

    Pros

    There are good Employees to work with Decent Salaries for some Nice Technologies for this size company Nice office space Some flexible work hours

    Cons

    Poor Executive Management Low Employee Morale Performance reviews non-existent and No raises Benefits were terrible Travel expenses must be covered personally then reimbursed No work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Executive Management should care more about employees to reduce churn. Manager and Employee feedback and opinions were ignored. Direction of company seemed to be a secret to the chosen few.

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

    Pros

    Always paid on time; stellar training program that was adjusted and revamped to better suit its users; solidarity among employees. Everyone in Senior Management is very nice & approachable, when they are available. I have only had positive, constructive interactions with anyone in a corporate management position.

    Cons

    Clients treat you very poorly; management views you as a cost to cut; non-competitive wages; no job security; no possibility for advancement. Very limited vacation time with blacked out dates where you could not take time off i.e the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve & 12/26. I was often asked to come in & work Saturdays & Sundays on little notice.

    Advice to Management

    I advise you to show the respect to your employees that they have earned by providing livable wages & decent benefits. The lack of respect is constant from the lawyers & staff in the offices you are staffing; your employees need a source of support.
