    Good place to work

    Software QA Leader (Former Employee)
    Nashua, NH

    ProsGood benefits, good pay, good people to work with. Management is very fair, promotions come if you work hard (as they should). The environment is very laid back and relaxed for the most part (except for government conferences)

    ConsUser Experience and Product Development team are all one, they sometimes are out of touch with the end users. Many times QA ends up writing the "Specs" because they weren't there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the proper software development life cycle, before you write a product, build a spec document, and stick to it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    This company is stuck in the 1990's.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou can wear sweatpants.
    Lots of people "work from home" when they feel like it.
    People have left here and gone on to be successful.

    ConsTransparent Language management makes very poor decisions.
    Consistently losing clients and having lay-offs.
    Dated and inferior technology.
    The QA people who don't dress appropriate for a professional workplace and smell awful.

    The CEO runs a software company and maintains control over the products but has no idea about software, programming, or tech trends- or really anything current pertaining to technology. This causes antiquated processes in every department and is the main reason Transparent Language has not seen much recent success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour only real success is in government contracts. Don't try anything else. Drop the content, creative, UX, and product people and hire that work out to people who are real experts in your field. There's ads for products that are nicer than the products themselves. Put all your money into developing new innovative software and less into marketing and sales. A better product will sell itself in reviews and accolades.

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

    Don't expect anything while working at Transparent Language

    QA Tester (Current Employee)
    Nashua, NH

    ProsManagement is hands-off allowing you to work at your own pace.
    Provide solid benefits if you can receive full-time status.

    ConsDespite what you're told, no room for advancement.
    Due to reliance on government contracts, risk of layoffs is greater than most companies.
    Able to bring up desired improvements to management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet people in management that will learn from mistakes and be willing to adapt to changes in environments.

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

    Great people, badly managed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Nashua, NH

    ProsGreat working atmosphere, very diverse and friendly co-workers. Very interesting mission. It should be better known, and has potential for being a serious contender.

    ConsManagement doesn't have a good strategy for the company, focusing on a single target market. Lack of risk diversification and product innovation results in random periods of job destruction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in more serious marketing efforts. Be open to target more markets.

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

    weird place

    Great Place to Work If You Are A Gamer (Former Employee)
    Nashua, NH

    ProsFlexible with time off and break times. If you are a gamer, there's a sense of community.

    ConsIf you don't play World of Warcraft or Minecraft you will get fired! Work stops to discuss the latest trends in WOW. If you discuss any thing really work related, it's basically are viewed as a bad guy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let 22-24 year old kids run a multimillion dollar company. Take experience over game play. If you are hiring, let the temps have a crack at the job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
