Great opportunity to progress in your career and work with great people. Great salary increases and bonus scheme, and hard work is rewarded. Great office to work in.

Extremely biased toxic nature- senior management is appalling. No such thing as work-life balance. you only succeed if you're close and spend your free time with the work clique! It reminds me of a high school in America

The job is a good introduction into the corporate world for a graduate but the company is very hierarchical and it is very difficult to negotiate any change from the set career path.
The pay is low for the pace of work and pressure from management.

There are no benefits for junior staff, a minimum tenure of 3 years is required to have access to benefits such as training and travel opportunities.

Low morale throughout teams, disguised by strong friendships built between colleagues.

Lack of transparency between management and staff.
Pros
Free fruit twice a week

Probablement l'une des organisations les plus crapuleuses que je n'ai jamais connue. A la hauteur des relations conjugales de leurs fondateurs:

Transperfect doesn't pay their contractors on time, I highly suggest that anyone considering entering into a contract with them for translation or document review services have at least a month and a half float of your own savings because Transperfect will string you along promising you that they are working on payment. Also they lied about when the project ended, just emailing me that the job had finished Monday morning rather then telling me so that I could have worked at another project.
Cons
Don't pay

Very high staff turnover - especially new joiners tend to be given targets that are simply impossible to achieve without a massive amount of unpaid overtime. Directors bully you and staff cries on toilets and the stairwell.
Pros
Interesting job
Cons
Lack of appreciation

The job was mainly to arrange translations of medical documents ranging from customer's note to complex scientific books into the desired language needed by the client.

The job consisted of finding the translator, proofreader negotiating with them salary for their services.The role ultimately was to be in charge of every project ensuring it was 'final eyed' by me before submitting to the client.


I learnt a lot of project coordination, negotiation skills, time management and attention to detail.


Management, was concentrating on targets which meant over working staff, to the result of high turn over.


co-workers were great however most of them left very sudden, as a result of no life balance.


Hardest part of the job, was deducting the translators their well earn money as a result of the client not being happy with the translation or as a result of technical/formatting.


The most enjoyable part was the translators, it felt very much like a community and built a lot of relationships.
Pros
you will learn lot of skills for future jobs
Cons
long hours, inadequate management, unpaid overtime, stressful environment

a typical day would be receiving emails from clients who have issues with their PC, it would then be my job to go over and try and resolve the issue, any issue i was not able to sold i would escalate to the IT engineer.
Patching of network and phones

Troubleshooting issues that internal or external clients had

the co-workers were very nice and easy to get along with at times.

hardest part of the jobs was when people would come requesting us to do a big job in a short period of time
Pros
high pay for an apprentice
Cons
long hours

There was a very high employee turnover across all departments. Most of the employees I knew worked on average 1 year. Especially Account Managers had hard times and surprisingly little reward. Sales people were revered and pampred, although they also had to experience a lot of pressure.
There was a very high pressure on all employees to work overtime (the "productivity" targets were regularly increased, also above the feasibility threshold), this time was not paid for, nor rewarded in any shape or form.

A lot of stress, good to learn new skills, but do not expect being rewarded or valued for your work.
Pros
many opportunities to learn the profession hands on
Cons
unpaid overtime, very high level of stress
