    I worked at Clutch Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Clutch in the Data Analytics team for one year, and honestly while there are a lot of negative reviews here on Glassdoor, those refer to other teams. The DA team was really a great place to work. When I came in I knew nothing about eDiscovery, but I was given tons of hands on training right from the start. The DA and PM s who I interacted on a daily bases with were really kind and for the most part pretty competent. I felt like my contributions were valued, and that I had everything I needed to be able to do my job well. The head of DA here in DC is a wicked smart guy, and encouraged me on several occasions to jump into new projects which were out of my depth. Honestly, I left the company because the field itself turned out not to be interesting to me, but for a person who is into eDiscovery I actually can't imagine a better place to be working.

    Cons

    The work is pretty unpredictable, some days it's very very very very busy, and some days it's really slow.

    I worked at Clutch Group full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to learn on the job - it's a small company (though not too small), so you will have to wear plenty of hats, and work often with only the most necessary supervision, but if you're genuinely interested in keeping pace with a rapidly changing legal industry, Clutch offers a great chance to work both in your field of specialty, but also to gain exposure in other areas. During my tenure, the 'hard skills' I could list on my resume more than doubled, and I probably gained some soft ones, too. It can be a whirlwind, sure, but if you're keen on gaining new skills and working on some exciting projects, Clutch has a lot to offer, and plenty of opportunities for growth within the company.

    Cons

    It's a still a fairly small company, so sometimes waves of work come in and there are only so many people to take on the work (other times there's not much to do - those these occasions are rarer).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to place trust in your employees - if you hire the right people, they will continue to do stellar work and keep the company running smoothly.

    I have been working at Clutch Group full-time

    Pros

    -Exciting, fast-paced work environment
    -A variety of interesting, challenging work
    -Opportunities for growth
    -Direct, frequent interaction with executive team
    -Great culture and colleagues - everyone works hard, but enjoys working together

    Cons

    As with any smaller, rapidly evolving company, it can be hectic/stressful at times, but this is outweighed by the exciting direction the company is moving in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue listening to employee feedback!

    I worked at Clutch Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive. Flexible hours, to some extent. Work was on the easier side.

    Cons

    Doc reviewers were fed a large number of lies about everything: duration of project, being converted to full time employees, travel opportunities, much more. They even lied to our project manager, who was unceremoniously fired for calling them out on it. Middle management was extremely disposable, leading to a real instability and lack of experience. The HR employee was let go for repeatedly divulging gossip from employee's files. Just a very unpleasant work environment. They hid (and still hide) behind ridiculous corporate speak.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is a better policy than obfuscation or omission. Just be honest, it's not that hard.

    I worked at Clutch Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a nice atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Was told they wanted to expand our role and make us full time employees. Then 2 weeks later they fired the entire group on a Saturday afternoon. Very unprofessional.

    Don't lie to employees

    I worked at Clutch Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After working at Clutch for a few years I felt kind of strongly that I should write a review given some of the personal mentions on the page. The company is not perfect but this company does care about us. Especially the Delivery Management, President and General Counsel. I have strolled by the conference rooms and I often heard them fighting for raises, benefits, work/life balance, additional hires. The Finance in India and CEO look at people on a spreadsheet and are clearly bottom line focused and the rest of senior management team does seem to care about every person at the company and do give up their own money often for special rewards or thank yous. I have been the recipient of this. They won't ask you to do something that they wouldn't do themselves.

    Cons

    The HR team is not great They seem to be a cost control cop.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting to create a good culture. Invest in HR and invest more in internal IT. The organization should publish a career progression chart.
