    Current Employee - Translator  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Translator in New York, NY

    Pros

    You can do it whenever you have time.

    Cons

    you are probably going to have to be refreshing the page every ten mintues to find a task that is usually 1 hour long and for four dollars (if you are lucky). When you do the job, if the quality team doesn't like your translation or if you made a typo... you are probably not going to get paid for the job and receive a humiliating feedback (which is going to be full of their own horrible grammar and spelling mistakes).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you pay your quality team only if they disqualify the employees? That is what it seems, those people are eager to find an excuse to grade our jobs like we were beginners.

    Zero communication

    Current Employee - Translator-Transcriber
    Current Employee - Translator-Transcriber

    Pros

    The tasks are interesting and the work can be fun. The platform is easy to use and you get the hang of it quickly.

    Cons

    There is zero communication between the company and the contract employees. Emails go unanswered and inquiries posted on the community forums are often ignored. Tasks are few and far between. There is not much earning potential here; not even to supplement your other income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your contractors. We feel we are ignored. Seek more clients to provide sufficient work for the employees currently working for you instead of adding more translators and transcribers that will never see any work.

    A Truly Dedicated Team of People

    Current Employee - Director of Marketing  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Director of Marketing in New York, NY

    Pros

    The people, location and leadership are all first rate. We wake up every day to find new ways to break down language barriers which is awesome. It's a laid back environment with music, free food and yes even free beer when the mood strikes.

    Cons

    We're a growing team working hard to grow more. If you're looking for established processes this probably is not the place for you.

    Former Employee - Interpreter

    Pros

    All in theory- should be a great source of work, and from home.

    Cons

    Lots of hype about a Company that really has little work to offer, bring on entirely too many free workers, for little or no work. VerbalizIt Is literally run by 1 person, Daimla, who does not get back to you on concerns or issues in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide real work and assignments, work harder on getting more customers instead of "holding" or engaging an endless amount of interpreters and translators to their desks in hope of finally, receiving a call, for a few cents.

    Current Employee - Translator  in  London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Translator in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    can't think of even one

    Cons

    In four months made less that $15. To unblock a payment need to make at least $15, which means that so far in four months I didn't get a penny.
    Make a lot of promises........and nothing happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to management school !!!!!
