    I have been working at Language Services Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Spend most of my day coloring which is relaxing.

    Cons

    A lot of office politics. Managers from every department think because they speak in Spanish no one knows they're talking about other managers and employees. We hear you and we think you're ignorant. No one speaks up because no one would listen. If you try to make things better you become a part of the Spanish gossip circle of hate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about people behind their back.

    "Interpreter contractor"

    I have been working at Language Services Associates (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility of the job and ok pay

    Cons

    I don't think they value the interpreter ; they don't realize that without us this business would not exist. They say they pay the 15th and 30/31 but because they send check you always recieve it the 21st and 6th of the months. I wish pay day was a fixed day or directed deposit. Make sure you negotiate higher pay, travel expenses or miliage in the beginning because you will never get a raise no matter how long you work for them. Research the pay of your language before you accept the offer.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure who ever send the interepreters' check put it in the mail the 15 30/31 or before so we can get our check at decent time not week later or more! Thank you

    Pros

    we get to help others communicate! LSA is an amazing company with hard working people that are on a mission to help others communicate!

    Cons

    Immature coworkers that like to complain about everything. I think a lot of the problems started when they hired young immature kids that are Bratty and get upset when they get reprimanded for not doing their job. I have worked at LSA several years and have only had a positive experience. It is a place of great opportunity if you apply yourself and actually do your job and follow the simple rules. i have made great long lasting friendships here!

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to the negativity, these negative reviews are from immature employees who didn't belong at such an awesome company!
