Pros

If you are a good producer, you will do well here. Once "trust" is earned, depending on the manager of course, you have a lot of freedom. Longer term employees have a good amount of vacation. Lionbridge attracts a lot of industry veterans, so you will always find someone to compliment or enahnce your knowledge of the G11n process, technology, etc.

Cons

HR is by far their biggest weakness. Many questionable policies are put in place and even their HR folks themselves cross the line on PC. Sr Management has been there a very long time and therefore nothing much really new comes out of it. It gets wrapped up as new, but ultimately it is the same old same old. Politics here are HUGE! If you can't play politics, this is not a place you would want to promote in!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing I say is what hadn't been said before - Middle management listens, but don't think upper management does - it is liek the emperor's new clothes. Some real, personal acknowledgement of accomplishments go a long way, and not incentivizing by shame. Smaller, token raises also would show people are an asset - Don't wait to offer people you do like and value quit to offer them a raise - the damage is done. These people leave because they feel undervalued and underappreciated. Proactively provide them this token appreciation and you can save a lot of good people.
