  1. Document Review

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC

    Pros

    The pay was good compared to other document review companies in the area.

    Cons

    It's a contract position so you are not extremely important to the company. Many people stuffed into one office. Becomes very monotonous.

    Pros

    Office filled with great people.

    Cons

    Terrible infrastructure. Management is poor and lacking in knowledge. HR is located in Virginia and they are of no help, so save yourself the phone call. No appreciation for employees, they are overworked and underpaid. Poor raises (if any at all). Training process is essentially non-existent and severely lacking. They have many offices nationwide, but it is like they are a bunch of small offices operating separately. I guess if HAD to work here, opt for the VA office.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they make a difference and they will.

    I have been working at LeClair Ryan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There isn't a single positive thing to say. Really. Most hate it here and would tell you that. These positive reviews are suspicious. HR is a scheming bunch of people who are not respected by the staff.

    Cons

    If you like not getting a pay raise year after year and being told there is no money for raises while you watch them hire and add offices, and you like not having a meaningful year end review with true feedback this is your place. You will never be compensated fairly and you will never see a bonus or pay raise. The people in HR are the worst and are ruining what was once a great firm. Firm has a terrible reputation locally and nationally for being cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your HR and your morale will completely change.

    Show your employees you value them.

    Pros

    None. You must enter at least five words for pros.

    Cons

    The salaries are 40% below market from top to bottom. Firm management can be quoted for saying your salary is not a direct correlation with merit. They do not even pretend to value work life balance. You cannot pay small firm salaries and expect big firm hours.
