A successful company with interesting technologies.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at SDL plc

ProsThis is a very interesting area and the problems that need to be solved are challenging. The international market penetration is very broad, which gives global brand recognition to anyone involved in localization/translation. Having someone you just met tell you "oh, sure I know about Translation Memory, we use it in our company every day" is very satisfying.

ConsSDL is not your typical software company, the main business focus is not on software, so for a software engineer, that can be a little disappointing.

Advice to Senior ManagementSince the company is very successful I say "keep up the good work", because whatever you are doing, it's working quite well!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
