    I have been working at Lionbridge full-time

    Pros

    Lionbridge is a truly global company. There is a high level of transparency at Lionbridge - even though there are over 6,000 employees, the company communicates promotions and new hires. In addition, from a culture perspective, there was recently a meditation class (we even had a really fun super bowl party!). The employees here are all very friendly and helpful. Honestly, before I interviewed here, I was taken back by some of the poor reviews; however, I realize now that many of them are from contractors who work part-time from home who do translation work (vs. FT employees of Lionbridge). Lionbridge has brought in some new leaders who are eager to bring change to the company - and the company is hungry for it, too.

    I wasn't too aware of Lionbridge prior to interviewing here, but now that I'm here, it's a pretty cool company that has grown organically and via acquisition. Lionbridge acquired a digital agency called Darwin no too long ago, which has propelled Lionbridge's digital/emotive marketing area.

    Lionbridge also offers good flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Not many that I can think of. The benefits are standard with good time off. Corporate office is very nice, but can be quiet at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate.

    Pros

    Great environment and ability to work from home sometimes. Management is supportive and doesn't typically micro-manage, which I appreciate being tenured and skilled at my job.

    Cons

    There isn't too much room for career development and US employees outside of sales don't seem to get bonuses or annual raises - even for cost of living.

    Pros

    Easy hiring process, the certification isn’t crazy hard or long, everything can be done online

    Cons

    Response time/communication is a tiny bit slow but what can you expect really. It’s an actual company they are busy I’m sure.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a friend referral or incentive program
