    Horrible

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFair with PTO for the most part

    ConsTerrible environment, management does not care about employees as much as they care about pleasing corporate

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a bit more reasonable with employee expectations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like human. Ever took the time to wonder why employees are dropping like flies . Build your employees don't belittle them , remember happy motivated employees equals happy customers equals successful company. BTW keep an watchful eye on your so call management team , you might also enjoy their Facebook comments and online shopping experiences while on company time and everyone is slaving away

    Avoid this place like the plague!!

    Visa and Passport Specialist (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIt offers health insurance. But that's about it.

    ConsLow pay for all the stress and harassment you'll receive. Unless someone quits, gets fired or dies, there is absolutely NO room for advancement. Pay raises are never more then a measly 30 cents or so. The harder you work, the more you'll be harassed and ridiculed. A compliment is never given without a gripe about your ability to do your job, even if you're an excellent employee doing your best. Expect to be be threatened with a "job security" speech daily. Vacation is offered, but at least 5 months out of the year are restricted. And when only 1 person can take time off at a time, you wonder what the point of even offering it is. Don't expect to have a life outside of CIBT. You're expected to be a robot with no feelings or life of your own outside of work. Upper management in the corporate office is a mess. They couldn't care less about their employees, talk poorly about employees to other employees, make big mistakes and poor choices and then force their employees to fix the problems. Company is extremely profit driven and will work you into the ground until you just can't take it anymore. But don't ever expect to benefit from rising profits aside from the measly salary you'll take home. Employees, especially long term employees are leaving right and left whether or not they have something else lined up. In this economy, that has to tell you something...

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that your employees are people, not robots. Start treating them with respect and stop harassing them. Stop writing people up for getting sick or for having to tend to a family emergency. And most importantly, realize that happy employees = happy customers. Your current business model is going to drive CIBT right into the ground. This used to be a great place to work, but as of 3 years ago, it's now one of the worst. It's time to wake up and realize this.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFew of them, perhaps the fact that healthcare is good enough but it is not saying much considering how healthcare is expensive and treated differently by companies.

    ConsMany. Restricted time off (5 months out of the year!), stress and pressure, overtime (paid but still, it seems to be impossible to avoid it without missing key deadlines), constant victimization from both countries attended to and management which commits many, many mistakes that are suffered by the front line people, obsession with customer service when little of it is rendered by management itself which comes across as completely incompetent, obsession with profits at all costs and mostly at the detriment of the front line staff and middle management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to anyone considering employment there is don' t! You will thank me for it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
