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

Pros

I had a desk.
And a chair.
Nice coworkers to work with.

Cons

Working at this company wears you down little by little every day until you begin to value your self worth. Upper management should be utterly ashamed of themselves that they have created such a destructive and unhappy workplace for so many people based on fear and blame.

They offer no development opportunities at all and the "change" in job titles is usually in name only with the actual job not changing whatsoever. To even get a promotion, the statistic system used is completely flawed, with no transparency about how to achieve good scores and constantly changing targets (which I'm pretty sure is illegal).

The below-inflation pay raises are equally ridiculous - effectively taking a pay cut after a year of working hard is far from rewarding. Getting a bonus was just as hard - receiving just one negative feedback on a job wiping it out completely.

I have never met anyone in the company that actual likes working there, which is not a good long-term business model. When I spoke to someone in my new office, they mentioned that they sometimes use translation agencies. I asked which ones and they said SDL and TransPerfect - guess which one I told them not to use anymore?

Advice to Management

Learn to value staff, even slightly more. Stop putting fake reviews online.

    Pros

    Will hire you with no experience and provide solid training. When I left this job after a year--the Job I got right after paid more than double for a less taxing job.

    Cons

    Will underpay you for what you do, keep you on salary and expect 80 hour weeks. Only promotes from within. Will fire you if you leave your résumé on monster.
