    Awesome collegues, exciting work

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsMost of the employees have been there for over 5 years so everyone is really invested in thier work and chummy. Once you've been there that long you get 3 weeks vacation plus an extra 4th week at Xmas time. The last few years the company has expanded their programs and sites so lots of exciting buzz and opportunity. I enjoyed my time at Rennert and had a great supervisor which is hard to find.

    ConsThere can be a lot going on all at once

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the momentum!

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

    Better off elsewhere

    International Admissions Coordinator (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe best thing about Rennert were the people that worked there (non-managers). Teachers and administrative staff are intelligent, supportive and a fun group. Work conditions encourage staff to be very close/commiserate and many of the people I worked with are still friends of mine today. Could be a good place to get your feet wet if you don't have any experience in the industry but not ideal to be there more than a year.

    ConsLow pay,very little vacation time (1 week per year and not allowed to take vacation during the summer which is late may-sept), little room for advancement, lots of work and no overtime during peak seasons, management can be overbearing and is disconnected from the every day work that staff does to keep business afloat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your staff by acknowledging hard work, allowing more international or domestic opportunities for travel. Pay people more! Rennert is based in NYC and salary is barely at living standards. And increase benefits. Managers could also benefit from training on how to be actual managers. Staff is very self sufficient and administration has run as well as it has but no thanks to their managers ...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rennert Translations

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsYou can learn about different departments not just your main duties.

    ConsAbusive coworkers and managers. Very true - The company keeps them because they have been there for many years. Very hostile environment. Nobody has people skills. Two face to each other. Manager works from home 80% of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be fooled by the two face of your employees. They talk bad about you but cannot be abusive to you in your face because they will lose their job immediately.
    They think its ok to be abusive to others. Implement 0% tolerance to bad behavior.
    Hire professionals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A very toxic and hostile work environment.

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe only bright spot is that you get to work with Fortune 100 companies and it provided some excellent experience.

    ConsRennert is stuck in the 80s. Innovation is looked upon with hostility. Mediocre and inappropriate behavior is condoned. There's absolutely no commitment to employee development and the turnover rate is extremely high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Rennert Translation department is beyond repair. They're better off shutting this division down since their primary focus is the school.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Manager - Translation Department

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood for a complete beginner to gain some experience in the field and learn how know how to deal with people who are completely over their head and abusive.

    ConsUpper management who will keep lying to your face and do absolutely nothing even after you complain about the same person for a hundredth times even though you have a solid proof that the person was completely absurd, insane and abusive towards other people in the department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management and HR need to change, Rennert needs to completely restructure the whole company and hire the right people who will listen and do something when many people are complaining about the same person over and over again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting and challenging work; impossible to succeed because of institutional shortcomings.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsSmall company, so there are opportunities to work outside your job description (in good ways). Rowdy work parties and some cool folks working in the lower levels.

    ConsAbsolutely horrendous work culture. Leadership is lazy and abusive behavior is tolerated without recourse. Departmental directors/managers have no oversight or accountability. Employee dissatisfaction and turnover is extremely high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure industry best practices are being applied to everyday operations. Provide your staff with useful and ongoing training. Perform some kind of long-term planning/goal-setting. Put PQI procedures in place and emphasize accountability.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
