    I worked at Eclipse Translations full-time

    Pros

    - A really nice group of co-workers, sense of all being in the same boat
    - Starting salary is reasonably fair
    - Northumberland is a great location and property prices are reasonable
    - The experience looks good on your CV - good introduction to the translation industry

    Cons

    Very poor management. Discrepancies in pay rises and lack of transparency in management culture. Poor opportunities for career advancement, with staff being passed over for promotion on a regular basis. Incredibly high turnover rate for such a small company, which HR blame on the difficulty of finding people to come and work in Northumberland. Lost count of the number of people signed off with stress over the years. Staff bring up the same issues time and time again, but are told 'If you don't like the job, you know where the door is'. Unconfirmed but convincing rumours of social media surveillance of staff by HR. Pressure on PMs in particular to work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Try and hold on to your long term staff who have been trying their best in difficult circumstances - some positive feedback and/or acknowledgement would go a long way. Seriously rethink management culture, especially in terms of staff confidentiality.
