I worked at Lionbridge

Pros

A paycheck. You may luck out and have some normal colleagues who make the experience of this place a bit more tolerable.

Cons

Not sure what the deal is with Lionbridge management.. Are they miserable and bitter before working here or does this place make them that way? The Management style.. make their employees feel stupid whether berating them in group emails or meetings. Innovation from employees..hah, you will keep your mouth shut if you have any ideas and sit around rotting waiting for your task; basically assuming the role of a button-pushing monkey. The only way to succeed here is to be an incredible bumkisser. You make one mistake or come up with a better idea than your manager and you're ripped to shreds. This place is good at one thing, making a mess out of honest, hard working, intelligent decent peoples professional and personal lives. A pay raise...HAH! Not one for years for the worker bees but it's fine for senior\middle management to reward themselves with fat raises\bonus\stock options while CEO sends out company-wide emails crying about 'belt tightening, 'trying times' This is a facade of a company which live day by day praying the next product will be the 'great one'. Prospective employees, read the other reviews and decide whether you want to subject yourself to this - trust me, you deserve better. I may sound bitter because I AM, It will take a long time to erase this place from my memories.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share the wealth, the cost of living is getting higher. At least give the worker bees a modest increase. We all see the financials and it's not trickling down to the folks who have to tolerate Lionbridge!

    Pros

    Competent work force, fairly flat organization so exposure to executive manager fairly easy to do. Flexible work hours but also global footprint requires work outside standard hours

    Cons

    many people have been here quite a long time and while the company wants to innovate there are quite a few people who are invested in the status quo

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more directly with the rank and file of the organization - review your compensation to what the market will bear --
