    I have been working at Acclaro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All of the individuals I've worked with are great! People have positive attitudes and are always willing to answer questions and help in any way possible. Good work-life balance, and it's rare to have to work long hours. Project budgets are good, and there's not such a need to haggle with linguists over rates.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth within the company. I'm not sure whether it's due to the company's size, but there is a lack of opportunity to step outside of the Project Manager role and really learn something new and explore other opportunities at Acclaro.

    Emphasis is not placed on investing in employees in regards to adequate training (general loc. PM training as well as what's new in the industry), and there is little acknowledgment of a job well done in regards to raises. While this is not necessarily uncommon in many other jobs these days, it is clear that the higher-ups at Acclaro don't have much regard for experienced PMs' work and do not give raises unless the PM takes on 2 or 3 times their original workload.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that there are many other opportunities for localization PMs in the Bay Area, and invest in your employees and acknowledge when they do good work. When senior management comes into town, take time to talk with all employees one-on-one about their roles and how things are going. Consider potential bonuses if a raise is not fiscally possible.

    Part-time Translator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Acclaro in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. They contacted with me the day after to confirm certain criteria. Then they sent me a translation doc. After couple of days, I was just informed that test evaluator did not approve my translation. I did not get any feedback so far and it is very unlikely to get one.
