    I have been working at Lionbridge for less than a year

    Pros

    Really a nice, supportive culture. My boss is extremely affable and supportive. He has that privilege, in my opinion, because my co workers are professional and don't require micro managemet.

    Cons

    The pay is below market average. Employee reviews are futile because raises are non-existent. Health care costs are a lot more than what I expected.....$700 a month.

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Writer in Chennai

    I worked at Lionbridge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Will recommend to work for 1 year experience and move out.

    Cons

    There is no Technical Manager, they are managers who do not care what work you do, how you do the work because they don't know that stuff. They only look at your monthly target and blame you. It is waste of time and energy to convince them about the complexity of the task. There is no continuity in work. Sometimes you may have work and sometimes you might not. Whenever a team meeting is held, the manager often says "Work will come". But those people don't know, when will this happen. And the funniest thing which I experienced in this firm is, "you should go and ask for the work." No one will assign you work. The writer should find the work, do the work and deliver the work. Still I don't understand why there Project Management Team and Manager. Earlier the situation was not like this, it was a very good company. But from 2017 everything has changed. The Management is very poor at managing things.
