  1. "Great training, Great people, horrible upper management."

    Pros

    Trialgraphixs provided excellent training to all of it's employees. Also, since there isn't much competition in the indusry it is an easy sell.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management, people get fired because they don't like them. Goals are not resonable. Unwilling to listen to client complaints.

    Advice to Management

    From what I have heard most of the upper management has left over the last couple years. Hopefully, the newer managers will make positive changes.

    I worked at Trialgraphix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere and easy going, friendly working staff.

    Cons

    Upper management ran the company into the ground. Dishonest wheeling and dealing of the owners and the most recent company (Update Legal) that administered our employment from New York.

    Basically kicked to the curb when things went bad for the company. It was done over the phone. No severance and hardly any notice.

    Disapprove of the CEO from the company (Update Legal) that controlled TrialGraphix from 2013-2014, which was not Richard Pennell. He had left a while back, so this rating has nothing to do with him.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying.

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

    Pros

    - Great (excellent) group of jury consultants. They could rename the company "Trial Jury Consultants".
    - Consistent, exceptional reviews of their work and professionalism on the Jury Consulting side.
    - Generally good to great client experience for graphics. Several excellent graphics consultants.
    - Smartest group of experienced consultants I've worked with.

    Cons

    - Attorneys are not - just *not* - demanding a lot of graphics for trials anymore. Especially not expensive ones
    - Consistent Crashing revenue that is worrisome.
    - 3D output is a bit outdated, as are the website / marketing materials / marketing examples.
    - Most attorneys rarely have 'trials' anymore. They've just become rarer and rarer.
    - Most younger associate attorneys grew up with PowerPoint & Photoshop, know how to work it. Sad but true. Small projects have dried up.
    - Many slicker, faster, and cheaper competitors who do fantastic work.
    - On last 2 of last 3 big projects I worked on, the attorneys didn't use the graphics at trial. They weren't allowed, or thought they weren't accurate, etc.
    - Management provides little leadership or inspiration.
    - No sense of direction with sales plans, lack of communication between departments. No sense of interdepartmental community.
    - Terrible health plan. You will find yourself not wanting to go to the doctor under any circumstances. Found myself calling for months on 3 separate occasions sorting out billing issues. Large deductibles.
    - Not sure if HR cares anymore. They know your plans suck - sorry!
    - No sharing of information across offices.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with that.

    Pros

    interesting industry. They offer a variety of service providings, the clients are actually worth meeting and getting to know. Employees work as a team there.

    Cons

    they will find creative ways not to pay you. Upper management has their head in the clouds, and really add no value to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in folks that actually can train and develop the sales team. Dont rely on a strategy of just asking them to learn on their own. Management needs to keep their door open more often so employees can feel comfortable reaching out for help.

    Pros

    Casual dress and snacks provided.

    Cons

    Zero financial incentives, unattainable goals, and employees are micromanaged by supervisors.

    Pros

    People are smart, work hard and do things efficiently. You will feel as though you are among the competent elite, and hard work is recognized, though expected.

    Cons

    You are expected to give 150% percent of your energy and time. This is not the best place for you if work life balance is important to you. This is a place to work before you have kids, when you want to be a workaholic who is well rewarded for giving it your all.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to respect people's private lives while looking out for the bottom line. You are losing good people because things are just too intense at times.

    I worked at Trialgraphix full-time

    Pros

    Hardworking co-workers made the insane work-life "balance" almost tolerable. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. I don't know why I kept working here for as long as I did.

    Advice to Management

    The company's been gutted, so it really doesn't matter anymore.

    Pros

    Great place to learn a tremendous amount of skills from a litigation consultant perspective. I was like trying to drink from a fire hydrant. If you could keep up you were golden.

    Cons

    TG hasn't been the same since the original owner sold the company several years ago. There has been a revolving door of owners and/or managers. Very sad to see the demise of what was once a leader in the industry and a cool place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck, I know your hands are tied and you probably have a tough time staying afloat while having to manage a team in a rocky environment.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to sharpen skills and perform in client-facing situations, often in fast-paced seat-of-the-pants scenarios. If you are confident in your talents and software, then it is an excellent environment to excel.

    Cons

    Hours/shifts can be long and often drift into weekends and overtime—proper compensation was delivered to those who took the work seriously. The owners circa 2011-2014 were poor managers who shook everything apart: I'm confident current management (RLM) has an excellent grasp on how to manage and execute workflow properly, letting TrialGraphix become relevant to the 21st Century.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and learn from the errors of the former managers! TrialGraphix has a fine reputation, so keep open communication to each employee: that can help keep quality and morale high.
