    I have been working at Lionbridge part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Work from home -You choose when you work -It's easy to log time worked Overall I love this job! I love the flexibility, and being able to work from home. The tasks are really straight forward and if it weren't for the cons it would be a 5 star job for sure.

    Cons

    -There's frequently no work. -It's really difficult to get in touch with higher ups. -The exam process was long and tedious. During this pandemic I thought I would be safe since I already had a WFH job. Wrong. I've spent so many hours just trying to find work and there's nothing. You don't get paid for the time you spend looking for tasks so it's a lot of time wasted. This job would be perfect if there was always work available, but even before the pandemic I often struggled to get my 20 hours for the week in because there wasn't enough work. It's already Thursday and all I have worked is a little over 2 hours. Normally I'd be done for the week by now with my 20 hours. So the no work situation is REALLY bad. The irony is that I still see on job search websites that they're looking for more people.

    "Interesting concept, very subjective, borders on not legitimate due to practices"

    Former Employee - Ads Quality Rater in New York, NY

    I worked at Lionbridge part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work at home, good communication, CEO seems engaged here

    Cons

    The process for application is lengthy for such a position and the exams are very long and so subjective I thought the aim initially was literally the wisdom of the crowd type crowdsourcing...converging on a 'right' answer, there being no actual right answer. Actually, I'm pretty sure this kind of approach might yield them better results in what they currently do, given the veracity of Bing search engine results. I think I may have been successful in passing their exam if I had spent more time studying the idiosyncrasies of their not fully fleshed out reasoning process matrix (if this, then that, not accounting for a possible c, e, or d answer) re quality of ads...but that's a lot to ask for what I learned they actually offer. I'd say divergent or creative thinkers likely should not apply. Too bad, as I could have used the extra money, especially in the coronavirus era.

    I have been working at Lionbridge for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to determine your own schedule while working from home.

    Cons

    The sheer amount of constantly-changing guidelines that must be memorized in order to actually make any money is mind-boggling. You don't get paid until at least a month after you complete the work. The only way to contact actual humans is through an online portal; there are no direct phone numbers or email addresses for support. The main offices are in Ireland while much of the data is held on the West Coast, so the time zone differential can be confusing. The pay varies widely between tasks and can change without notice.

    I have been working at Lionbridge part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Easy and convenient schedule * Work from home, remote position I work for this company for about 1.5 years. This is my second job (part-time) and it helped my family during tough times. The company provides trainings, webinars and support a lot. The job is not easy or simple, you DO need to use your BRAIN. I am paid for the time I work. The time given for each task is realistic and adequate. Again, the best part-time gig for working mom of three. You decide if it is for you or not. You also get 401K with company match.

    Cons

    No raise. Limited working hours. No extras.

    I worked at Lionbridge for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work from home, job flexibility, somewhat of a team environment.

    Cons

    This company was constantly changing the performance metrics to stay competitive, but it resulted in unrealistic metrics for the evaluators. We were threatened with dismissal regularly if we couldn't keep up with the changing metrics. Many good people were let go because of the unrealistic goals and after a certain number of people were fired, they would scale back on the metrics. This cycle would be repeated over and over again. This company only cared about your performance and would drop people without a care and sometimes illogically. If you worked too long at the company and kept up your metrics, they would let you go because they needed fresh people. It is amazing I lasted over 6 years. I finally quit because it was miserable working for this company.
