I have been working at Corporate Translations (Connecticut) full-time (More than a year)
Most of the staff are likable and friendly. They also will pull together well to finish a project successfully.
I have been miserable here and actively searching for a new job since I started. There is no acknowledgement of a job well done and constant nit picking of errors that really don't matter. The pay is quite low and opportunities for advancement are non existent. From associate level to senior, everyone does the same work. Lower level employees are taken advantage of this way, because they are assigned complex, high liability work for much lower pay. Management constantly acknowledges the company's growth and success but no one sees any of it in their pay. You are expected to work past your capacity and go out of your way to help the company, but you will be treated as totally dispensible. It seems they have failed to notice that all this success comes from the employees, so they keep losing them. They have lost at least 10 people each year since I began.
Advice to Management
Hire more people and train management. If you actually asked employees for feedback more than every 2 years, you would see that they are exhausted and very unhappy. No one in a managerial position motivates their employees. They are impersonal (when they actually have time to speak to any of us) and more negative than positive. Maybe there would be fewer small errors to complain about if we weren't expected to do double the work that is realistic for one person.
