More Pros and Cons

  1. "Attorney Document Reviewer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Contractor - Document Review Attorney in New York, NY
    Current Contractor - Document Review Attorney in New York, NY

    I have been working at FTI Consulting as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really great managers, sane work hours and a physically comfortable work environment make this place a pleasure to do document reviews. The managers are very supportive, and encourage reviewers to seek to become certified in the proprietary review software, and to "work up the ladder" to becoming assistant team leads and team leads. We all know that we're "cogs" in the document review industry, but at FTI, they don't treat us as "cogs" -- they treat us as attorneys.

    Cons

    Reviewers are not permitted to use cellphones in the review rooms.

    Pros

    The Company has great benefits depending upon where you fit within the organization.

    Cons

    The company headquarters being located in Washington DC actually creates a greater than average government-mindset. The politics are worse than in most companies but any mature-minded person can navigate them quite easily. Most younger careered individuals may find the environment rather challenging to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Management and Leadership are not necessarily congruent. There are many managers within this company but very few leaders. Because of this, there is nothing I am willing to share with the management because of concerns it would fall upon deaf ears.

    Pros

    Upper management is almost never around

    Cons

    Middle management is left to do what ever they want and it is far from ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being individual contributors; I am sure you are probably better at that.

    Pros

    Phenomenal team-oriented environment.
    Great culture, especially in the Construction Solutions practice. A great group of people who enjoy exchanging ideas and knowledge.
    Supportive environment that supports personal and professional growth.
    Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management can get too focused on bringing outside talent rather than developing the existing talent pool.
    Compensation and benefits are not bad, but could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage out-of-the-box thinking and innovation in your employees.
    Focus resources on developing and properly compensating existing talent rather than pursuing outside talent.
