    I worked at DTI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New Velocity sales training was beneficial. Insurance and benefits were average for industry. Met a few colleagues that were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management was difficult to work with. Brought in a few large projects and was forced to hand over to other BDM's for whatever reason and was told not to tell client. Very unprofessional.

    Pros

    Great resume builder as the company has grown.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Compensation is well below market. Expected to take on ever increasing duties with promised salary increases that don't materialize. The best team members have left. Antiquated systems.

    Pros

    Really nothing good to say.

    Cons

    Low pay! Promised lies, low raises, benefits are crap, no advancements, HR is horrible, their glassdoor review replies are fake. If you do contact them with concerns you're more likely to get fired which most employees wouldn't mind. You will get pretty much the same pay on unemployment. You're better off working for McDonald's flipping burgers.

    Advice to Management

    Our advice doesn't matter to this company. We're worth nothing to them.

    Pros

    There is nothing "pro" about this hell hole!!

    Cons

    I have never been associated with a bigger bunch of cry babies and tattlers. You're micro managed to death. If you don't eat, drink, and sleep this place you will not fit in. Don't bother to speak your mind either. You're a malcontent if you do. Stay away from Kansas City unless you like kissing behinds.

    Advice to Management

    The manager in KC is nothing short of the biggest brown noser I have ever had the displeasure of knowing!

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

    Pros

    The people, I worked with some wonderful people (site manager and other staff was so awesome )

    Cons

    Everything else ... DTI Upper management promised raises and great bonuses all lies. Raises was not at all raises based on the location but "what they could afford" witch is what the upper management was telling my boss people at my site where getting .10 .25 cent raises like WTH where do they do that at "DTI"..(so disrespectful)

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with some respect pay people what they are worth your Company would not be where it's at today if it was not for your staff working hard to keep your clients happy . Stop making promises that never happen

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with smart, motivated and experienced people in the litigation support field.

    Chicago office is in a great building with Starbucks, restaurants, convenience store and nail salon on first floor.

    Fast paced environment.

    The high turnover has allowed me to make lots of industry connections.

    Cons

    From Iris to Epiq to DTI, I have worked for 3 different companies in less than two years. Iris didn't have a culture other than burning out and replacing their employees but at least there was room for advancement. Clique work environment is the closest thing to work culture here.

    Quality of health benefits decreased once DTI took over.

    Constant fires getting put out with bandaid solutions.

    Employee morale is so low. Everyone has been afraid of getting fired so good people are jumping ship.

    Don't believe the recruiters.

    Micromanagement is the name of the game and public reprimanding is favored in the open floor plan.

    Highest turnover rate I have experienced but it makes sense. Analysts and coordinators are burned out while the project managers and upper management sit nice and cushy and are way, way better paid.

    Something is always broken or doesn't work which makes getting your job done a huge challenge in addition to the lack of resources in about every other department.

    Was hired salary and then became hourly. Redundant time entry processes for admin workers.

    Strained relationships between departments, lack of collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Having to fend for yourself and adapt is no form of training. Why hire new people if you won't train them? Being told "this isn't so bad" doesn't empower or encourage your team to work harder.

    Promote the hard workers and stop dangling carrots in their faces.

    Just because your team is "hitting" their hours does not mean that they are working. Perhaps create an incentive for the project managers to train analysts as the manager does not have/make time to train his own employees.

    Pros

    None - Court Reporting business is woefully lead by a nice man who does not know what he's doing.

    Cons

    Continuous RIFs, especially in court reporting. Never seen a more "depressed" workforce...really horrible. DO NOT JOIN THIS COMPANY at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the future of the company rather than trying to constantly "cut" your way to profitability. Management clearly does not understand the court reporting business, particularly at the most senior level.

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

    Pros

    Many offices located nationwide, specifically in the SouthEast

    Cons

    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Many of the "supervisory" staff members can barely speak English let alone convey instructions to carry out work

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent regional management that is from the specific area in question instead of having hillbillies with no regional knowledge
