  2. Huron, the consulting company for which they staff, creates a terrible and thankless environment.

    Pros

    Free Coffee and tea and on occasion, continental breakfast.

    Cons

    The full-time, salaried, Huron staff treats the review attorneys like second-class citizen and most of them aren't even attorneys. Segregated refrigerators are the tip of the iceberg.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the contract attorneys like actual human beings.

    Cons

    Lots of uncertainty with the length of projects; lack of communication from project managers regarding status of project

    I have been working at synergy legal professionals as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Frequently hourly requirements are set for the week, not by the day. For example, with a 40 hour week you can work four 10 hour days and take one day off. Parking is available nearby for $9/ day. Expectations dare pretty clear and feedback is always professional.

    Cons

    Somewhat hopeless atmosphere because there are no opportunities for advancement and no one went to law school to do document review all day. There is no clear path to becoming a Quality Control leader.

    Pros

    $20 an hour and overtime is available most of the time.

    Cons

    --They may pay $20 an hour per project but rarely is a project available. --It is possible to officially become an employee and work just one week out of 3 months. --This is not a company to be taken seriously. If you graduate from law school and need a pet project before you find a "real" job, give them a call. --Very unstable work hours....you may have been told that a project will last 2wks and in reality is last 2 days. --Management cancel projects sometimes minutes before you start work for the day.....no heads up given whatsoever. ---Imagine this -- you are sent an email that says a project is available and it will last two weeks. Then they tell you to arrive at 9am and be on time. You're sitting in the parking lot at 8:50am when you get an email (through your cell) that the project has been cancelled ---go home. That really sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional. If a project is cancelled, give employees proper notice. Giving notice minutes before the start of the workday is very unprofessional.

    Pros

    Synergy legal professionals serves as a great segway into the legal workforce. The company offers great temporary employment as you attempt to secure a permanent legal position.

    Cons

    The only downfall about working for Synergy legal professionals is that the contract duration isn't certain. You may be prepared to work for three weeks, but learn after week one that the contract is complete.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can offer Synergy management is better communication on the duration of the contracts. Some people communte to the contract location and only desire contracts for longer periods of time.


  11. OK, but you can't make a career out of it...

    Pros

    Great flexibility, so you can balance the demands of your life (family, solo practice, bar study) with work. The people are generally very pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    The pay has not changed at all since I've worked there ($20/hr). Some people get paid a little more, depending on whether or not they're doing QC work or other work.

    Advice to Management

    Get at least half of the projected amount of data loaded onto the review platform before bringing people on the project. Get a clear idea on how long the project will last. Then hire people to work daily, straight through, and finish the project instead of having them come in at the drop of a hat when work is available, and sending them home mid-day if work runs out. Raise the salary.
