I have been working at Akorbi full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Tremendous growth opportuntity, strong salary and bonus potential, with open communication with senior management. "If you want to move mountains, this is the place for you...."

Cons

Nothing major..... (Better coffee, a Soda Machine or a ping pong table in the break room would be nice)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing and this company has the potential to do great things. The leadership team is solid and they truly care about the welfare of everyone and the company as a whole.

    I worked at Akorbi full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Most of the people are very nice to work with.
    -If you are a translator or linguistic at an early career, It could be a good place as long as you are willing to put time and work for a lower rate if you are Spanish, Portuguese or Chinese speaker.

    Cons

    -Long hours.
    -Lots of "Extra time" expected to help the company grow w/o extra compensation.
    -High stressful environment.
    -A lot of micro-management from CEO.
    -No work/life balance.

    VERY WEIRD THAT THE LAST THREE REVIEWS IN THIS WEBSITE, WERE ALL FROM THE SAME DAY (FEB 7) AND ALL OF THEM POSITIVE...EITHER IS MANAGEMENT MAKING UP ALL THESE REVIEWS OR THEY ARE PUSHING EMPLOYEES TO LEAVE GOOD REVIEWS TO AVOID BAD REP IN THE INTERNET.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't exploit mid-career employees by telling them you should be grateful to be working for such a great company, so we expect you to put in extra hours for the privilege of working for us. Find some good work/life/family balance or you will never retain people who are vital to the long-term growth and stability of your company. I saw many people leave the company and heard that a lot of people left the company before I joined them.

    It is a sweatshop, hard to perform top notch and feeling undervalued and underappreciated all the time.

    Pros

    Gain a lot of valuable experiences that you can take with you on your next job. Get to work with many wonderful linguists from overseas.

    Cons

    If you don't mind being micromanaged day in and day out, possibly working late even on a Friday night without any reward be it financial or whatnot, and working with a weak technology and expected to perform "A" class, then this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not enough to find good employees, need to find ways to keep good employees. Also, in order for the employees to take care of the clients, the employees need to be taken cared of and feeling valued.
