    Pros

    Great team environment, great company values, works with charities that I believe in. Promotes a healthy working environment both physically and emotionally. Great people to work with. Like the fact that the job also is very challenging and can change from day to day.

    Cons

    Can be extremely detail oriented at times, due to demands and having to make sure everything is precise.

    Advice to Management

    More office events, discussions.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Trusted Translations as it has given me an opportunity to grow as a professional and learn an entire set of new skills.

    Dynamic environment with tremendous growth potential. Solid core staff with people dedicated to learning and improving the company’s performance through new technologies.

    Long hours and constant emphasis on perfection when sometimes it is not possible given tight deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Processes and training should be organized more efficiently.

    I have been working at Trusted Translations full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work! I feel all my peers are all on the same page striving to create a professional environment where performance is the key metric. I have worked out of both the DC and Miami offices and have enjoyed the professionalism of each of those teams.

    Incentives based in your own hard work coupled with great flexibility to develop your portfolio of clients. Excellent growth perspectives tied to a company that is always looking for ways to grow and expand its business.

    Cons

    Fast-pace growth can lead to longer hours and an emphasis on executing well under time-pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Never give up on trying to find the right mindset of people dedicated to growing the organization and committed to delivering results.

    I worked at Trusted Translations full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked directly for Trusted Translations and the CEO and had a great experience. People who put an effort at Trusted Translations always do very well. I personally developed my professional skills significantly and was grateful for the opportunity.

    Cons

    The job I was hired for required you to be a self-starter and take the initiative. However, I wish they would have had a bit more formal training to get started.

    Advice to Management

    Implement more training programs initially to provide the employee more tools to execute their function. I definitely like the fact that the more you perform the better you do.

    Pros

    I have been working for Trusted Translations as an Interpreter on a variety of different assignments and have been given this opportunity by the management on various interesting projects.
    Like the variety and the flexibility of the work. Whenever i had questions I have had good response and support. Last minute changes or clients wishes were taken care of in a timely and professional manner. Paid on time and get projects on a regular basis which is really nice.

    Cons

    This is a competitive and growing business so it will be very learning and you can progress if you are flexible and professional.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the support and interesting assignments. The interpreters can be scheduled with the experience on similar assignments to keep the great team spirit.

    I worked at Trusted Translations full-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot about translation.

    Cons

    They say they have offices in the US, which is not really the case and we tell customers we are there, but really we are all at a call center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living base wage. If you collect customers' fees in dollars, the pay should be higher.

    Pros

    Location in Brickell financial district is convenient and attractive place to work. The building has great amenities, great view of Biscayne Bay and close to Brickell shops and restaurants.

    Cons

    Cult of personality management. Very high turnover rate, many quit without notice. Employees all in the same small office, tension is palpable. Haughty manager hires a lot of temps because they cant keep regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management seemingly not interested in building loyal career employees. Not likely to be receptive to advice.

    Pros

    - good compensation when out of country

    Cons

    - terrible company environment (they prefer tension over cooperation)
    - terrible management-employee relationship
    - shady payment and portrayal to customers--they ask you to lie to customers regarding our location/size/work process
    - no growth opportunity
    - misleading hiring conditions

    Advice to Management

    - a positive work environment where employees opinions are respected is much more conducive to a higher output and sales generation.
