How are senior leaders perceived at Inspired Review?

Pros

Working from home can be considered a Pro and a Con. But we (the employees) pay for that, through lower pay, much higher tax burden - we shoulder the entirety of the payroll taxes for employer and employee, while they pay no duties on us and pay us less compensation, $22-24, making our actual take home in the $15 range-as ATTORNEYS. It's really the scam of the century.

Cons

1. Flex hours - this is a tactic they use to illegally classify attorney project employees as 1099 and to pay far less than market. This is a complete farce, a fraud that leaves the attorney consultant carrying the employer and employee tax burdens. Victimizes the employee. Check the IRS's 20-factor test. There is no alignment with Inspired's policies to the IRS's worker classification guidelines. 2. UnInspired Review discriminates on the basis of age. The CEO has what he calls a "Silver List," consisting of over-40 candidates. Everyone on the list is considered 'do not place.' We should all demand discovery of our candidate records and profiles. 3. The management team behave unintentionally-they lack mission and principles, and incoherently. The co-founder and ops leader, is not all there...you’ll never get a cogent, straight, honest answer. 4. Serious concerns go ignored for as long as it takes for you to forget about it. An employee had a legitimate payroll question and it went unanswered for weeks and weeks until the employee just stopped asking. Their management strategy is avoidance and confusion. 5. The culture is one of chaos and amorality. The CEO is unethical, in that he is always looking for ways to trim more out of payroll (by shifting W-2's to 1099's, among other illegal tactics), and to bilk clients at higher rates, disguising his project managers' poor work product. This is not what they're selling to clients: managed, secured, methods-driven...it's un-managed chaos that relies on the reviewers' superior legal knowledge and integrity to eek by day to day. The CEO is erratic and enforces a culture of zero integrity and disregard for laws regulating employment and employee needs. 6. Project managers with few exceptions are cruel and they avoid solving problems... You'll never get a straight answer out of them, either. Blind leading the blind. The list could go on.

Advice to Management

Replace the management team with sane people, who have at least a semblance of self-awareness. Replace the project managers with competent, trained, and mindful leaders--real leaders. Train recruiters to be better customer service providers. We are customers, too.

How is management perceived at Inspired Review?

Pros

Great management, which provides great training and useful feedback to improve the team's coding. The management listens to reviewer input makes a genuine effort to provide a comfortable work environment. Inspired offers frequent projects, both at it's Sunrise office and also remotely. The projects range from straight forward to complex litigation. The Sunrise office offers free parking, conveniently located next to the highway, flexible hours and average pay for the industry.

Cons

I have no complaints about this company. I have worked with several other document review companies and Inspired is by far my favorite. The commute is easier (no need to drive through down town traffic or pay for parking), the management is great, and its an enjoyable environment to work in.

Advice to Management

Thanks for the opportunities and recent positive changes.

Great management, which provides great training and useful feedback to improve the team's coding.

What is the salary like at Inspired Review?

Pros

Remote work is about it. But they make it so difficult to get onto a project and then ride you like crazy once you're on and then they cut you loose for months and months.

Cons

Everything else. The pay is low and getting lower. When I started there, it was about $30 /hr for remote work. Now it's 20-23 I did not go to law school to make less than my pizza delivery teenage son.

Advice to Management

No advice will ever reach their deaf ears. Useless group of losers.

The pay is low and getting lower.
