    I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions

    Pros

    Very laidback management, great friends and people and opportunity to meet and make friends with people. Job satisfaction and great pay, benefits and vacations as well as 401k.

    Cons

    Sometimes good friends you make will not be there the next day which is a huge blow when you know them for a long time, sometimes its really slow and nothing to do but read and read.

    Pros

    This is entirely unsolicited and reflects my own personal opinion but it is a very real testomony from someone who speaks first-hand. Knowing there are many options and choices of language service providers, to me it is important not to have a "job" but to have an environment that allows my creativity to thrive and values my voice and input so I can inspire. In Langauge Line Services, I have found not only that but have also being inspired myself time and time again by its own mission of commitment to quality and excellence. It is the people that make a company great and I am proud to be among the best. It is not often that employees are given opportunities to be heard but this organization not only listens, but allows you to affect change and supports creative thinking. Our CEO has been at the forefront of many important industry-changing initiatives and has remained committed to doing the right thing for the good of the profession. The organizations commitment to enhancing quality standards is evidence of this in that it has invested more financial and human resources toward the development of a national standard of practice and other initiatives than probably all of its competitors combined. I would wholeheartedly encourage anyone who is committed to being the best in what they do to pursue a career here!

    Cons

    With leadership comes a sense of responsibility and often change requires bold industry-evolving moves. These sometimes can be controversial and can impact plans so its important to remain flexible and patient. This is a normal part of change and evolvement however and can also be very exciting and rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to expand on the already existing culture of providing a culture conduscive of supporting creativity and talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LLS should require from clients to use phones sold by LLS. To make sure all the phone are in excellent shape, and provide clarity in sound. To also make a profit from selling the phones.

    I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions

    Pros

    Work from home. flexible hours, no need to have a car to get around. no spending on gas and no boss looking over my shoulders.

    Cons

    I understand that it is a very competitive industry and your prices must be kept low in order to help customers use your services but the pay should be better in order to keep the turn over rate down. There should be a benefit package included in order to show employees that it is worth their while to stay with Languageline Services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great leadership at Languageline Services. Your phone interpreter recruiters are very freindly and courteous and make the whole interview and testing process very enjoyable.
