    Pros

    Good benefit package. Direct upper management in the headquarters office has a lot of experience working with interpreters and with the deaf. They look out for the interpreters in general. There is a huge need for Interpreters who also speak Spanish fluently, although the paycheck is not commensurate with this extra skill.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge about the Interpreter's role at many of the schools where you would be assigned to, which puts the extra responsibility to educate others on the interpreter.
