I have been working at SDL

Pros

There is a great group of employees, and I enjoy working with my peers.

Cons

Management is very secretive and makes a lot of empty promises. Reviews are postponed inevitably and attention isn't generally paid to the PJM team unless it's negative.

    I worked at SDL

    Pros

    Local management very good about work/life balance.
    Local management proud of our office's accomplishments and gave good feedback on individual projects.
    Smart colleagues, always an opportunity to learn from them.

    Cons

    I worked with a great group of people under a very good manager, but upper management seemed not to care about us. The CEO (at that time) never visited our office, even when he was traveling through our area--in the 5+ years I worked there, I never met him. It was as if he couldn't be bothered to take time to meet people who worked hard to produce a good product--we were beneath him.
    The company is tragically stingy; I can count on one hand the number of times the company ever bought us lunch or did something to recognize our efforts.
    We were not allowed any program on our computer unless it was approved by IT--couldn't use Chrome, couldn't upgrade browser, etc. Everything had to be sanctioned.
    Weren't allowed to work from home; I really got the feeling that the company didn't trust us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the "little people" who toil for you. Do something nice for your employees in the States once in a while.
