    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?

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you'll do Encourage an environment that is professional, courteous and approachable Stop asking employees to write positive reviews on Glassdoor in order to balance all the negative reviews Stop focusing on quick turnarounds and start caring about the quality of your work

      I have been working at TransPerfect full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good processes and continuous development of new strategies . Some managers are flexible and try to help you.

      Cons

      Long hours if you want to move up is almost a must. Atttention to detail, otherwise little mistake would fire back big. Daily routine gets monotonous and rarely you can switch.

      Advice to Management

      Don't overwork your employees. Life work balance is important so hire more people to cover the work available.

      I worked at TransPerfect full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Decent level of autonomy with projects Working with translators! Generally they're smart and kind, helpful and generally amazing at what they do. Great for working in linguistics and being part of an international team

      Cons

      No loyalty to workers, it's the kind of place where an employee will "win" quarterly awards and then as they're quitting you suddenly get an email blast announcement, "Effective immediately, so-and-so is no longer at TransPerfect". Management plays favorites and promotes the wrong people, bullying happens often and seems to be encouraged, lack of recognition, no work-life balance, you put in hours for little respect,...
