    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at TransPerfect full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have never seen a company so dedicated to its employees. This company, not only excepts you as part of its family but ensures you have time for yours. Recently, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. The company paid for me to go back home to spend time with my mom and allowed me to work remotely until the heavy part was over. Also, working for TPT, is a family in itself. Everyone is so kind, generous, inviting and loyal. It's hard to find a company these days so inviting. I love working for TPT.

    Cons

    Obviously, with any career, you are required to put in the time to ensure success. It is challenging at times but it does make up in other ways like happy hour with your team. Dinners, travel, training opportunities and experiencing NYC. Annual salary could be more. Again, TPT makes it up in other ways, such as benefits, dinners, lunches and friendships. I know these don't sound like cons. I suppose I'm greatful for the opportunity that TPT has given me. I hope to move up the ranks at TPT.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to train the people that need help to succeed. I believe that the management is solid. But, they tend to have a high turnover rate because management is busy growing the company.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TransPerfect (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    As an independent recruiter I was contacted via LinkedIn several times by a corporate recruiter to work on a special recruiting project. The first two times she didn't get back to me after I reached back out to her several times. I never heard from her again. Then she contacted me about a year later and we had some back and forth emails then we spoke via phone. All seemed kosher. Next, I met with a VP and she described the project with more clarity. Further, another employee, who sold the project, came in and met with me and discussed it in further detail. I exchanged emails with the sales person where colleagues were discussing the project. The VP stated that I would hear something from them in the next day or two and that she would reach out. The corporate recruiter reached back out to me on a Thursday and asked if I was available to fly out of town to meet with the client on a day or two notice to which I agreed. So I waited and then emailed and called... Nothing. I have never heard from them to this day. I gave them a week and emailed again. Finally, I emailed stating I'd appreciate an update on the project. I was fine with the fact that the project either fell through or they used someone else, but I have never had so many meetings, discussions, calls and emails regarding a project and then no follow up at all, especially when I was contacting them and all they had to do was send a quick email stating that the project was on hold, etc. Very unprofessional!

When you work for a small company, you get to interact with the owners, have a say. Often when a small company gets big, you have less of a voice—owners become distant or there’s too much red tape. We offer the best of both: the resources and financial stability of a big company, with the personal interaction, visibility, and autonomy of a smaller outfit. How often do you find ... More
