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

    Pros

    RVM allows you to be your own boss. It respects you as a professional and provides opportunities for training and growth.

    Cons

    You need a thick skin and a light hearted approach to your work. Otherwise, there can be a lot of racist, sexist, and masaginistic jokes around the office that can make you uncomfortable at times.

    Advice to Management

    It's nearly impossible control or prevent, but the ownership is a walking harassment lawsuit.

    Pros

    None. You will actually learn about eDiscovery in other shops. Walk away. Don't even try to work there. It's not worth your pain.

    Cons

    So many. The main one is the CEO who thinks he knows how to run an eDiscovery shop. Hiring exec people who look good on paper but bring no value to the business is not going to help the business. RVM's reputation outside is horrendous. So many people are dissatisfied with the pay, the benefits (their 401k is absolute garbage don't even waste your time saving money), but what is the most alarming is the high turn over rate and no one seems to realize that good hardworking people leave not because they're incompetent but because they're truly unhappy! The CEO gloats that RVM is such an amazing company to work with! Ha!! That's nice to live in a fantasy world. He doesn't know ANYTHING about eDiscovery. He spends the money earned on stupid parties and gives nothing back to the employees. This place is such a waste of time. I don't understand how they can still be in business.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't read or listen to advice. If they did the place wouldn't be such a disaster.

    Salary is almost competitive. Some nice people who work very hard.

    toxic atmosphere run by a couple of bullies. In 3 years they haven't had enough money to pay anyone bonuses.

    Treat people with respect. Honor bonuses.

    Pros

    I've been working with the Project Management group for a while now and this is overall the best group of people I've ever worked with. The people are smart, driven, and personable. Yes, we work hard and sometimes long hours, but we also laugh a lot and enjoy each other's company. Management is actually some of the funniest ones of the group and encourage the light hearted fun! Having a great work enviornment is incredibly underrated and the environment here is great. Management expects a lot, but that brings the best out of you and makes you up your game.

    RVM is in transition from a smaller to a medium/large company. Management has put in a tremendous amount of effort into revamping the company's culture, efficiency, and work life balance to scale up. It has it's rough patches, but you can tell they're trying and are on the right path.

    For those of you scared by the numerous negative reviews, don't be. People love to complain and mainly only speak up when unsatisfied and there are no consequences. I will say that many of the 4/5 star reviews seem fake and written by the owners/upper management though.

    Cons

    Going back to the negative reviews, some of the things mentioned are true. Some are under payed and there is no automatic cost of living annual raise. That was my biggest sticking point. That is a topic being discussed with ownership but until that is addressed, many will leave after a few years.

    I don't think management/ownership actively does enough to retain talent. There are too many incredibly smart and talented people who leave.. but that's also the revolving door of e-discovery.

    In the past the company apparently was a sweat shop, but in my tenure so far, it's been very reasonable. Yes, I've had the 18+ hour work days and 80 hour weeks, but they're few and far between. You'll have your long hours at times, but that's the nature of this business. No matter which company you go to, that'll happen. I don't mean to sound rude, but those who complain about the hours, find another industry.

    Management doesn't mess around when it comes to performance. If you can't keep up, you're gone. It's a little scary in terms of job security, but if you're not good at your job, management should let you go. After weeding out some under performers, the PM team is now very strong.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep your talented employees and compensate accordingly. Be interested in what is boosting or lowering morale.

    Pros

    Management truly believes in professional growth. Company promotes and rewards creativity, ambition and loyalty.

    Cons

    Location of office is great for some. The competitive salary and health / educational prograns more than make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    The new management and vision of company is working!

    I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    You learn a lot about most everything involved in the entire discovery process from intake to delivery. The COO was very accessible and helpful. You have control over your own cases.

    Cons

    Completely unsustainable schedule. You are literally working 24/7 and are expected to do so. Night and weekend work is every week not an exception on occasion. There is no support. System and structure is not strong and leaves PM scrambling to fix everything on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Hire support staff for PMs and be honest about expected schedule during interview process.

    Pros

    Good people to work with overall

    Cons

    Don't get fooled by the superficial glamor. It is an open door. In you come one day and out you go without any warning ....period. The new chief is a young brash guy and not exposed to corporate cultures in general. In other words he is in effective. They will not give you unemployment benefits. The pay scale is the cheapest in the industry.
    They make you work all day and evening if you want to survive in this company. it is a mom and pop shop.
    Unless you are desperate stay away from this company or take the job and KEEP LOOKING...SERIOUSLY.

    Advice to Management

    You will soon find out about your young chief. Ineffective.

    I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    They paid me. Which was nice of them to do at least that I guess.

    Cons

    No commuter comp. Terrible work culture. The "sweat-shop" rumor is true. Pay grade is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so sleazy. Treat your employees like they are human beings. It seems that every time someone reviews them negatively, a contradictory review just pops-up out of nowhere. I suspect management if trying to twist their reviews by adding new positive ones.

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

    Pros

    Health Insurance and an industrial Starbucks Verisimo which brewed decent coffee.

    Cons

    The people: Most are attorney's who think this is an alternative career path.
    Schedule: When you first start out you are required to work second shift which is like 3:00pm to 11:00pm. You are then required to keep up to date with all the email requests from clients throughout the day and night.
    Lack of Ingenuity: The position entailed creating document review queries for various clients through Relativity.The only problem is there was no creativity in developing the document reviews. Everything was regimented and quite inefficient.
    Cultural Environment: Reminded me of high school.
    Perks: A horrible 401K and minimal health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage it is an art form and not just a role.
