    Pros

    Easy work with good payment and lots of guidelines and I can work from home anytime I want to or I can take a vacation anytime I want to.

    Cons

    Tasks are not always available... And they are boring (repeated) tasks... there's no other benefits at all except for good payment and working from home anytime.

    Advice to Management

    We need some offline sociability with the other raters... It's not logical to expect us to continue rating as humans for ever if you are turning us into machines.

    Lots of staff are leaving due to below average salaries.

    Pros

    If you work in aerospace Technical Authoring, then you have a good opportunity to learn about aviation (but the starting wage for a graduate is £10,000 below the industry standard, with NO payrise, so graduates don't stay for very long....in fact, nobody does).

    Cons

    HR have a policy of recruiting graduates with lower grades because they know they can get away with paying them a pittance. Anyone with a higher grade is turned away because the rampant paranoia in the HR department leads them to believe that ANYONE with a good degree will automatically leave them to work for Rolls-Royce (this is nonsense: most staff are leaving to work at Bombardier).

    Some people have been working here for 3 years without a payrise.
    As we say around here, "the wage that you start on with Lionbridge is the wage that you will finish on".

    Advice to Management

    Fire your HR and recruitment staff.

    Stop bragging on Lionbridge's facebook page about how Chennai office is one of the largest Lionbridge offices in the world...that just shows that you like to employ people from India so you can pay them an EVEN lower rate.
