    Pros

    Big focus on creating a culture and ensuring that we are all collaborating with one another. Leadership team has gone above and beyond to convey that message. No complains at all!

    Pros

    can do it whenever you want up to 20 hours a week. Not hard work.

    Cons

    very hard for me to stay focused with no specific schedule. I'd find myself getting distracted by the articles and such. Also lots of the rating took me longer than the amount you're supposed to submit for payment.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe reconsider the timing on some of those rating tasks. Some were fine but some take a bit longer if you are actually gonna check website reputation and stuff like that.


  4. "Easy to do and learn"

    I have been working at Lionbridge part-time

    Pros

    Easy way to earn a little extra cash, and it's easy to learn how to do.

    Cons

    Limited to an hour a day.
    Only get paid for how many minutes you work and chances are you won't work the full hour.

    Advice to Management

    Look into combining everything into one site rather than multiple.

    I worked at Lionbridge part-time

    Pros

    Able to work anytime from home.

    Cons

    Slow response to emails and responses seemed "canned" and generic.
    Zero feedback about performance, so if there is a performance issue, the rater has no clue until its too late.
    No follow-up to training, no webinars.

    Advice to Management

    Since quality checks are being done, provide the feedback (positive or negative ) to new raters.
