    I worked at TransPerfect

    Pros

    great learning environment, independence on own projects, learned valuable skills for cold calls, research, and presenting

    Cons

    Got monotonous with some of the projects given.

    Advice to Management

    Assign interns to Account executives to provide more 1-on-1 time with an upper level employee as the managers were often very busy and not available for tons of 1-on-1 instruction.

    I have been working at TransPerfect

    Pros

    TransPerfect has a very nice company atmosphere, everyone in the office is very friendly, they have you doing tasks that actual Production Coordinators/Managers do, the intern program is highly coordinated, they really care about making sure the interns get the most out of their experience and the intern coordinators are great! It is not the standard internship where you will be making copies and getting coffee.

    Cons

    You don't make much money for the amount of work you do, there is a lot of tedious busy work involved in the job (which is what actual Production Coordinators/Managers), the hours are about 8:30-5:30 and lunch is not paid, and sometimes you feel a lot of pressure to do a lot of work in a short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the interns a bit more

    I worked at TransPerfect (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture of the company is very warm and welcoming. TransPerfect encourages growth for it's employees and wants them to succeed. There are constantly new trainings and conferences available for employees.

    Cons

    The company is huge, which relies on technology for everything. 80% of your job will be spent behind a computer screen. This can sometime make interactions seem rather impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Creating a more detailed training program for interns would be extremely beneficial. Giving a chance for interns to have more of a hands on experience would result in higher retention rate.
