  1. "Court Interpreter"

    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I have been working at Massachusetts Trial Court as a contractor

    Pros

    You feel like you are making a difference, that your skills and knowledge are depended upon. It is dynamic. No one job is the same and you get to live vicariously through the experiences and emotions of your clients and LEPs (limited English proficiency). You’re always in a learning environment, no matter what assignment you take on.

    Cons

    Many interpreters are self-employed, which can lead to fluctuating income

    I have been working at Massachusetts Trial Court full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fulfilling work helping your fellow citizens improve/progress with their lives, team atmosphere(depending on location), mission-driven colleagues, numerous training and professional opportunities.

    Cons

    Outdated technology. Projects and processes that can take a very long time. Cutting budgets on a yearly basis. Some flexibility with schedules and siting, but there is absolutely no working from home, under any circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    Project prioritization a must. More-agile approach to project management. Shed the legacy tech. Consider additional flexibility, like a summer hours rotation, to attract and retain 21st century talent.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Massachusetts Trial Court full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    very interesting and fulfilling work, private office, education is highly valued, great benefits, great locations(downtown Boston)

    Cons

    very conservative environment, very traditional environment, very hierarchical/protocol bound environment, advancement path not always clear, not very technologically advanced (government)

    Advice to Management

    more flexible, more modern work environment would attract younger, more tech-savvy workforce; less micromanagement/"top-down" type culture would also help

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Massachusetts Trial Court (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was a great introduction to the entire judicial system, and the efforts of the trial court to offer services to those being held awaiting substance abuse or mental health services.

    Cons

    This, position was a "contract" position, and not guaranteed from year, although I was employed in this position for eight and a half years

    Advice to Management

    None

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Massachusetts Trial Court full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The job is good in regards to job security, generous benefits/retirement and a great work schedule with holidays and weekends off.

    Cons

    Advancement or changing career paths in the organization does not exist as very few positions are posted internally. Upper management in Boston is unaware of dedicated employees who get brushed by the wayside because they are not liked or don't fit into a certain mode.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing and listening to your employees who show initiative and come to work everyday. If attendance and team effort are shown than that should be considered positive signs!

    Pros

    M-f schedule and all holidays

    Cons

    No coverage when some one is absent. No weapons for protection. Higher ups have their favorites and the Nage union is crap

    Advice to Management

    Get more staff and safety measures
