Doc Review Attorney (Former Employee)
Wheeling, WV

I worked at Orrick

ProsNice people. Good surroundings. Good coffee. Free parking. Interesting cases. Good dress code. Free CLE. Great IT department. Update computers with large screens

ConsToo much in-breeding in direct supervisors. They choose favorites. They play power games and become intimidated if a doc review attorney out performs them, even if their perception is wrong. Management stunts grow of program and makes sure the reviewers with talent beyond the computer don't get asked back

Advice to Senior ManagementFire the staff that is running doc review. They have been there way too long and are entrenched. They decide if they like you and will allow you to stay. So you have to kiss up to the non attorney managers and the staff attorney leads. This does not promote based on merit but rather favoritism. Program has great potential. Just inept management.
