    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at SDL full-time

    Pros

    Lets be honest, its a job. Co-workers are awesome and the job is interesting

    Cons

    Management needs to learn to be good managers. They are slow on good decisions or necessary ones. One the other hand, they are really fast to implement useless policies which only adds to the workload.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and act on what everyone that reports to you say's. Look here for some suggestions.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great learning experience, loads of client facing and taking on new responsibilities as well as owning processes - it's been really useful after leaving SDL to show how technical and experienced I am now. Bonus is a good incentive.

    Cons

    No work family balance at all. My social life was close to 0 for the time that I worked there, I even lost friends and affected my health due to stress. Very long hours for not enough money - definitely not paid as well as in the industry. They don't take care of their good stuff until it's too late.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your good employees, don't burn them.
