    I worked at Applus+ as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, responsibilities from day one and ample learning opportunities. It was a good starting job as a translator intern. Salary was high for an internship position.

    Cons

    Little possibiility for a hire after you are no longer a student. The company does not use any translation tool which makes translation process time-consuming. No proof-reading or project manager positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The role of a translator in such an important company needs to be better established and more stable. Translation tools should be used and a small translation department should be established, considering the large quantities of documents, and their variety, that need to be translated.

    Pros

    - able to have a good balance between work and family.
    - autonomy

    Cons

    - Some management does not lead or take action.
    - lack of any kind of strategy in sales, company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - In my opinion they should analise who really has talent in the company and promote them.
    - Do not think just short term, think long term.
    - Get more clients.
