    Pros

    TransPerfect has a very nice company atmosphere, everyone in the office is very friendly, they have you doing tasks that actual Production Coordinators/Managers do, the intern program is highly coordinated, they really care about making sure the interns get the most out of their experience and the intern coordinators are great! It is not the standard internship where you will be making copies and getting coffee.

    Cons

    You don't make much money for the amount of work you do, there is a lot of tedious busy work involved in the job (which is what actual Production Coordinators/Managers), the hours are about 8:30-5:30 and lunch is not paid, and sometimes you feel a lot of pressure to do a lot of work in a short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the interns a bit more

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of my office. My co-workers were great and the company is always putting on fun and exciting events.

    Cons

    The office was a little small for the volume of work that it did, but they are soon relocating to a larger and newer space.

    Pros

    Opportunity is available if your want it! I have been at transperfect going on three years. In that time I have watched several people advance their careers with hard work and dedication. upper management is accesable although super busy. The people are the best resource at transperfect! A young eager and enthusiastic staff.

    Cons

    The company is growing too fast, especially amidst all the distraction of the CEO drama. Things aren't always done as fast as needed and departments aren't always in sync with what others are doing. Expectations to work long days on salary with out bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Halt sales, and train and develop the staff you have. Perfect and streamline client processes, then take off to the moon with a refreshed energized young staff that want to work and make transperfect great!
