This review is based on the culture when the company was Kroll Ontrack, before KrolLDiscovery purchased it.
Training Coordinator, Legal Technologies (Former Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNJanuary 2, 2018
Interesting place to work. Teammates made every day a pleasure. Collaboration and helping out others was my experience of the culture. Even if it didn't fall under a person's job description, if it needed to get done, it did and it didn't matter the title, everyone pitched in to give our clients the best experience possible.
Pros
Good Benefits, flexible scheduling, excellent coworkers
Cons
Frequent management changes

Very flexible schedule to entice employees
Contract Attorney (Former Employee) –  Tysons, VADecember 8, 2017
Generally open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (officially, anyway); often more than that though. Employees are limited to 12 hours a day, but there is no minimum. They encourage working "core hours" of roughly 10 - 4, but that's not strictly enforced. Weekend hours are also frequently available, so it's pretty easy to fit in your 40 hours work week at convenient times.

Overtime is an occasional perk. Sometimes capped at 50 or 60 hours, but I've seen unlimited too (if you don't go over 12 per day--they adamant about that).

Bosses are very laid back and cool. They expect a certain review rate and, of course, accuracy and do cut employees that are not hitting the required quality levels.

The upper management can be a bit more controlling, but they only interact with the project managers so general staff is insulated from their occasional issues (like getting overly freaked out about people working too late or early or work quality). The three main managers are very easy going if you are doing the necessary quality and quantity.

And free lunch on Friday free parking. Other benefits (like 401k and maybe health) only kick in after a year or 1,000 hours or something like that. I don't know, I never got there.

I only left because I relocated. Otherwise, would love to still be there!
Pros
Free lunch on Friday, very flexible schedule

Great management, work-life balance
eDocument Review Attorney, Quality Control Lead (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 21, 2017
KrolLDiscovery is a great place to work for document review attorneys. While Kroll is not immune to the pitfalls of project-based work, managers are straight-forward in expectations for each project length and type of analysis required. Further, if a project ends abruptly, HR and management are diligent in shifting attorneys onto new projects ASAP. Pay seems competitive with the industry, so as much as I'd like to complain about it being too low, I don't think that's a reflection of Kroll's treatment of employees.

A formerly great employer of document review attorneys, since the change in ownership late in 2016, the company is now just one of many employers.
Document review attorney (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNAugust 14, 2017
In 2015 Kroll Ontrack stated its goal to be the employer of chioice for document review lawyers. It offered the top pay in the Twin Cities market, health care plans for new reviewers, a 401(k) with a 100% match for the first 4 % employee contribution, 40 hours pay "special reward" for every 1500 hours worked, free park king, half pay for holidays, and a referral bonus to employees referring new review attorneys who were hired.
Since its acquisition in late 2016 by LDiscovery, Kroll has begun walking back its "employer of choice" goal. First to go recently was the "special reward" bonus,
and at the same time holiday pay was eliminated. This amounted to a 3 % pay cut on an annualized basis. Next to go was the employee referral bonus .
Still a good place to work, but a much less desirable employer than a few months ago.
Pros
Free parking, health care plan, comparable wages, 401(k) with partial match, free pop and popcorn
Cons
Incipient draconian atmosphere, eliminated bonuses and eliminated holiday pay

Bad place to work post-merger
Attorney document reviewer (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNAugust 12, 2017
Since LD Discovery bought Kroll in late 2016 in a highly leveraged deal backed by Carlyle Group, compensation for reviewers has been cut by 3% by cutting all holiday pay and eliminating 40 hour pay bonus for 1500 hours worked. Referral bonuses have also been cut along with internet and Wi-Fi access. The review room culture has changed too with pressure from new ownership to work faster.

Carlyle Group, a publicly traded private equity firm, appears to hold the largest ownership stake at this time. Its interest is to improve short-term profits and sell the company for a healthy profit by slashing expenses, including through pay cuts and elimination of benefit programs.
Pros
Free parking and on occasion bagels and ice cream to make up for the cuts in pay.
Cons
Pay cuts, stressful, new ownership

Great company!
eDiscovery Consultant (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAApril 18, 2017
The employees are caring people, treat employees well and have solid benefits. Friendly co-workers, the organization had lots of meet ups so employees from different departments could get to know each other. This helped us all reach a common goal.
