      Pros

      Flexible schedule, great for moms and dads who cannot be full-time attorneys 24/7

      Cons

      Workload depends on how the litigation goes. If the parties settle, then there is no work to do.

      Good review company, likes to roll people over to new projects.

      decent company to work for

      Pros

      The thing I like most about working here is that they leave you alone so you can work -- not a lot of picky time restrictions, administrative stuff, or time card complexities. Both a pro and con here -- the experience changes depending on who your project manager is.

      Cons

      Training is a little shaky -- there's not a dedicated process for keeping the team appraised of changes as the project evolves.

      Good employer re eDiscovery project work

      Pros

      Just completed a 9 month project with Hire Counsel's Morrisville, North Carolina office. We originally worked on-site, but shifted to working remotely during March 2020 due to Covid-19. I really enjoyed my time on the project, and regretted that it drew to a close for our team. I thought the management team and QC support team were very professional - and knowledgeable. They also did a great job of trying to keep us in regular contact as a team through group conference calls and Zoom meetings. This project was originally expected to run about 6 months, but fortunately went to 9, which was excellent. Thank you.

      Cons

      None. I would have liked for our project to have continued.

      Pros

      If you are experienced in doc review they pay as well as most.

      Cons

      The company does virtually no training, coaching or prep. They let people go very abruptly with no warning far short of the term promised at hiring
