Nice people, disappointing results

Document Review Attorney (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsThe recruiters are very nice. They tried to make the contract projects more tolerable by providing refrigerators, water coolers, etc.

ConsI was seeking a permanent job, but never once had an interview for a permanent placement. They always wanted to put me on document review projects. The document review jobs were certainly better than working retail to pay the bills, but the morale was almost always very low on such jobs and there was little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic about permanent job prospects with candidates.
