    I worked at TransPerfect full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fancy offices Some good fish in the shark pool Free coffee

    Cons

    Unethical business practices. They love calling themselves the "largest translation company", but what good is that if you treat employees and linguists like dirt? Long hours with low pay No benefits unless you are a manager Annual raises are very low or non-existent (1-2% raise is standard) Frat house mentality among managers Salespeople bully the production staff and managers don't step in to stop it
