Document Review Attorney (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 28, 2018
good location -close to train stations; flexible hours but no overtime or benefits; wonderful management; casual business attire; weekly paycheck; everyday you use Relativity for legal document review.

They set you up really well -- all is done remotely yet our session went without a hitch. Hours were set at 8 and capped at 40/week, though they were flexible with the actual hours we worked. All in all they did a great job
Flexible, take it or leave it
Depending on the firm you're working under can be stressful
Hire Counsel is not a bad company to work for, as long as you don't expect too much. It works like typical doc review. The health insurance offering is sad, no vacation, no raise, no retirement, no guarantee that a job will last tomorrow... But, the pay is on the slightly higher side of average for the area, the facilities are clean, and the HC contacts and managers have always been pleasant.

So far, so good. I'm starting week 2 tomorrow for a project in Nashville. The pay is not great, but it will help you out of a bind and the hours are flexible (8am - 8pm, M-F; 10am - 6pm Sat & Sun). We are working in the UBS building downtown, which has good security. The office is clean and well-maintained. There is plenty of coffee (Keurigs in the break room) and supplies. The floor is quiet and comfortable. The project managers are professional and friendly. There is occasional system downtime due to system overload, but that's apparently to be expected, and you are still on the clock while they get it back up and running. There is no overtime for attorneys if you work more than 40 hours/week. There is an emphasis on volume; but from what I'm told, they only keep you on for later phases of a project based on your accuracy level in coding the documents. Overall, not a bad gig for a few days or weeks. If you are someone with a short attention span, or basically cannot sit and stare at a computer for at least 8 hours solid, this will drive you up the wall.

I don't have anything critical about the companies Hire Counsel represents, it's Hire Counsel's way of doing business. They insist on people coming in to meet them personally. I've worked with recruiters before who have gotten me permanent jobs and never had to meet personally. Where I live Hire Counsel is 50 miles away in traffic so a big deal to get to. I saw a job in my town and applied, and they insisted on my coming up to meet them, I told them I did this a couple years earlier but they would not accept that and I decided just not worth the bother. I just saw the same ad for the company near me. I guess they are not filling the position quickly which is a shame because I am perfect for it. I won't use them again.

A typical day at work is reviewing documents I learned proficiency in both Relativity and DocuMatrix reviewing softwares My co-workers pretty much stick to themselves and there isn't very much employee-to-employee interaction the hardest part of the job is the long hours the most enjoyable part of the job is the end of the work day
