Difficult Bureaucracy and Low pay

Translator (Current Employee)
Provo, UT

ProsIf you enjoy working in a religious environment where you can generally trust others, then this is the place for you.

ConsThe pay here is pitiful, and there are few chances for significant growth. The upper level of management places a stranglehold on creativity and flexibility. It is extremely difficult to make any beneficial changes.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake an effort to streamline processes and requests. There is so much control over every single issue that it is difficult to get anything done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
