I have been working at Translation part-time for more than a year
Pros – friendly, professional and helpful. and they pay well for the job I did. Very good people to work with and you can do good friends there. Good place to grow professionally
Cons – very far from home and they, sometimes are not very comprehensive with familiar problems, so you have to lie about why don't go to work.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Translation full-time
Pros – There's always inspiring projects happening at Translation.
A lot of great opportunities. Think, going to Jay Z/Rihanna/Kayne concerts or Nets games.
Always some "cool, awesome" project happening. Think Budweiser Made in America Music Festival and Bud Light Music First
Cons – All the creative decisions are dictated by Steve. He merely uses the CCO as his puppet. No one wants to be disrespected like that.
Be prepare to spend weekends, nights and vacations at this place. Forget you have friends.
Also, people sit on top of each other at Translation. Desks are literally created inside of closets and hallways. Conference rooms are nonexistent.
No privacy in this place. No place to think and work.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Translation
Pros – Exciting, ambitious, shoot-for-the-stars kind of consultancy, that, at its best, produces great ideas and fearless thinking.
"Never been done before" is an opportunity, not a reason not to do it.
CEO Steve Stoute is a natural marketer with raw, savvy brilliance.
Fantastic group of employees: passionate, culturally savvy, smart, creative, interesting.
Cons – Weak upper management.
Employees tend to be overworked and under-managed.
"Never been done before" ideas often tax resources and come with a steep learning curve. (There's a reason other agencies shy away from this stuff)
Lack of a strong team ethic.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire strong senior management that can forward Stoute's vision AND create healthy, empowered teams.
Actively manage and support .employee growth.
Built a culture of trust and respect
