Former Employee - Doc Review Attorney in Wheeling, WV
Former Employee - Doc Review Attorney in Wheeling, WV
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Nice people. Good surroundings. Good coffee. Free parking. Interesting cases. Good dress code. Free CLE. Great IT department. Update computers with large screens

Cons

Too much in-breeding in direct supervisors. They choose favorites. They play power games and become intimidated if a doc review attorney out performs them, even if their perception is wrong. Management stunts grow of program and makes sure the reviewers with talent beyond the computer don't get asked back

Advice to Management

Fire the staff that is running doc review. They have been there way too long and are entrenched. They decide if they like you and will allow you to stay. So you have to kiss up to the non attorney managers and the staff attorney leads. This does not promote based on merit but rather favoritism. Program has great potential. Just inept management.

    Pros

    it paid well, it had decent benefits, it had many nice and decent people to work with, and there was almost always a way to make extra money working over time.

    it did not have up to date hardware or software, it was hard to get equipment or other items when required, there was a lack of appreciation of the paralegal support staff.

    Have a more merit based award system, treat the staff with more respect, balance work loads better, stop micromanagement and improve technology tools.
