    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and awesome location (NYC office).

    I had a hard time finding a job straight out of school because it seemed like companies were all looking for someone with experience. My heart was set on getting into project management so it was a tough road for me. TLS (Transperfect Legal) gave me a chance and I've been here for 3 years now! I've learned so much and continue to learn something everyday.

    Cons

    It does get crazy at times but that obviously comes with the job of project management. Gotta keep the clients happy!

    Advice to Management

    Continue strengthening and encouraging your teams to make sure everyone's satisfied with their career. So far, so good! Keep it up.

    I worked at TransPerfect full-time

    Pros

    Small company, gift perks, purpose of company is interesting, personable experience with customers.

    Cons

    Not diverse company at all, poor training, not too welcoming, inconsistent resources/programs. They express diversity and in the DC office that was not the case.

    Advice to Management

    put more effort and resources into training

    Pros

    A ton of opportunity if you are a hungry salesperson. There are a ton of companies TransPerfect does not work with that you can go after.

    Cons

    There are a lot of companies that TransPerfect already has relationships with. There is also a lot of internal competition.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce territories more clearly.

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

    Pros

    - 5 o'clock Friday happy hour

    Cons

    - The hours are 24/7. You are expected to be on email at all times of the day and night, without any compensation for your time (including weekends). The in office hours are M-F 8:30-6 (but expected to be there earlier and stay later).
    - Co-workers hook up/sleep with each other, making it a disgusting work environment
    - It is frowned upon to take time off for vacation/personal/sick days.
    - You are given the legal minimum holidays off. Every day you are expected to work.
    - If you do not share the same views as the company you are treated unfairly
    - The pay is the absolute minimum, with no compensation for the hard work you will be forced to put in
    - You will be tricked during the interview that there is so much potential to grow. Do not believe it.
    - An all around disgraceful company that I would never recommend for anyone to work for.

    Advice to Management

    - Learn to treat your employees with respect
    - Have consideration for a work-life balance

    Pros

    New York City location for headquarters

    Cons

    People who work here think that they are typical New York City hot shots, but the company has none of the integrity to back that up.

    Pros

    Medical, Vision, Dental benefits
    Holiday potluck culture

    Cons

    The company is not flexible in scheduling enough to accommodate students and housewives. They do not care if the employees have to leave because they cant work around the current shift schedule, so there is a high turnover in this company, at lease for the past 8 months when I am in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the people instead of wasting time and energy hiring new one, costing the companies money in training.

    Good coworkers some good people around

    Cons

    Pay sucks, management is horrible. Recruiting department lies to you about the pay to lure you in. They treat you unfairly. They hire bilinguals with no experience and train them for a week and now they are considered "Professional Interpreters" .
