      Pros

      Great Colleagues, work/ life balance

      Cons

      I worked for Moravia at a client's facility in Culver City. Moravia is one of 3 vendors operating at the same client and by far the worse. The other 2 companies give from the start a better rate to most employees (depending on the language). Moravia pays a flat $25/hour, whereas you can get $27 from the other two, and maybe even more (you can bargain even if they initially say $25). After completing one year the vendors...

      Pros

      Like in every company, if you work hard, they'll compensate you somehow. You are responsible of your own growth, but definitely there's always a place for that. Also, you can always share your opinions.

      Cons

      Communication and administration systems need to improve.

      I worked at RWS Moravia full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      A global company, with all the pros and cons that come with that. If you like interacting with people from different countries and cultures on a daily basis, this is a place for you. There are many young, enthusiastic and talented people who are fun to work with. There is definitely potential waiting for competent leaders to grab and put to good use. The compensation and benefits are decent, and I'm told they go beyond...

      Cons

      In recent years, the company lacked focus. There have been a lot of seemingly arbitrary initiatives that didn't have clear leadership or accountability. As a result, many of them were later scrapped or just fizzled out. There have been some improvements in this regard more recently (2018). Until recently, there wasn't enough emphasis on employee development and knowledge sharing. You are merely expected to know whatever...

      Advice to Management

      Stick to what the company is good at. Focus on the tools, they are a source of frustration and confusion. Be honest and transparent with the employees, show them that you value them and don't just see them as resources.

      Pros

      Lots of pure-hearted nice people work here.

      Cons

      The work environment is getting more and more political. Management is very focused on immediate returns, and every decision is driven by its short-term profitability. The company has got rid of a lot of talents to become “cost efficient.” This was poorly communicated as well, and everyone is afraid of losing their jobs. There’s a high level of insecurity and anxiety across the company. It will take some time for the...

      Advice to Management

      If you have to downsize, at least communicate it properly and don’t just make people vanish.

      Can be the perfect job for a good work-life balance.

      I worked at RWS Moravia full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are lots of projects which is good Hoping now that they have been purchased things might change

      Cons

      They lost one of their best NA employees due to dishonesty in pay, fair treatment, lack of communications, understanding staffing processes, there is a c-level who lurks on social media instead of providing services to sell for profit, they fail to recognize the strengths of good employees which is a loss for this company

      Advice to Management

      Have some thing to offer aside from staffing and then teach your sales people to communicate efficiently and honestly with clients, recognize good talent when you have it, stop lagging in understanding clients needs and seriously learn to work together
