    Pros

    learn to multitask with efficiency

    Cons

    most of the time things are out of your control and you get penalized for linguists' mistakes. Not many opportunities to move up.

    Pros

    The project involved an interesting case.

    Cons

    At that time, they had a single coffee pot, and nearly 20 contract attorneys in the office. On a good note, I believe they upgraded the kitchen to include a better coffee maker. I wouldn't complain, though.

    Pros

    Amazing insight to corporate leaders

    I worked at TransPerfect full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people were mostly great. We bonded over the stress levels unfortunately.

    Cons

    No support, just cracked the whip harder. Worked on Christmas Eve, all hours of the day and night to make deadlines. Part I didn't like the most was bargaining with linguists to get their rates down so TP could make more money. Things are so rushed it was nerve-wracking especially having to do with medical texts.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees not just your bottom line.
