International and diverse company with great technology

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sheffield, England (UK)

I have been working at SDL plc full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe Language Technologies division has some great products and a very forward thinking vision. The culture and environment feels very international, working with different people from across the world which adds to the appeal. The management team is strong and very supportive of progressive ideas. Although SDL is not a small company, individuals can really make a difference. It has the excitement and flexibility of a startup combined with the solid structure of a large company, well established in its individual fields.

ConsCould do with more focus on employee development. Additional training courses to this end would be beneficial.

Advice to Senior ManagementStick to the vision.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
