Pros

Client Services department has a great management team and great group to work with in any office.

Cons

Work/Life balance not the best, but beggers can't be choosers! Work hard / play hard

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't undervalue your sales team, they work extremely hard to bring in new business for the Client Services team to hold onto.

    I have been working at TransPerfect full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    casual workplace. people are nice usually, even though working conditions are deplorable and and morale is really low. in production, people work 12+ days, several days a week. while this was a really awful job, having pleasant co-workers made it marginally more tolerable.

    Cons

    working in production was definitely like working in a white-collar sweatshop. there is no such thing as work-life balance. the job itself isn't hard but the workload is unwieldy and management rarely steps in to help someone struggling to complete their days work or show any interest in letting someone go home on time. if you seem to be working at a comfortable pace without being overwhelmed, a second later you will be handed more work that day and will end up staying in the office until 8/9 p.m.
    what was really miserable to witness was how trainers acted towards new PMs. during training period, which lasts 3 months on average, the more experienced project managers tend to be condescending to newer folks and strict and overbearing. i don't think new people (recent college grads especially) should be publicly shamed for missing commas or replying to emails incorrectly. scores of PMs quit in 6 months to a year and go on to be really happy elsewhere.
    outside of the office social events are just really boozey. pretty off-putting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    production is a revolving door for a reason. hire more people and increase base salary.
    each dept is severely under-staffed so each PM needs to carry more work, earn more revenue, underpay more linguists to make mark up, pull longer hours...and for what? 40something grand a year? that is a JOKE. this a really unsustainable model.

    Pros

    Exciting corporate culture - young and vibrant
    Ability to make money
    Global company
    Growing market
    Great co-workers

    Cons

    Used to be easier to get to know everyone when the company was smaller
    Underperformers don't do very well or last very long (maybe this is a pro...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up...a lot of good people in the company now and a lot of good things happening.
