    Pros

    Friendly people, great rates and on-time payments, without the need to ever have to follow up.

    Cons

    Limitations in the software used- sometimes it's easier to look at a document itself outside of a CAT tool.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice, the management team is great to work with and flexible when they can be.

    I have been working at VerbalizeIt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people, location and leadership are all first rate. We wake up every day to find new ways to break down language barriers which is awesome. It's a laid back environment with music, free food and yes even free beer when the mood strikes.

    Cons

    We're a growing team working hard to grow more. If you're looking for established processes this probably is not the place for you.

    "Underpayment"

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The work is relatively consistent.

    Cons

    I was a transcriber for them. The pay is under a dollar per minute of video. One minute of video speech in the real world equals roughly to about 20-30 minutes of labor of putting it in writing depending the speed of the speaker, audibility, noise and so on. Not according to this company. So, after spending 3 hours of transcribing you getting about $9 of pay. Ridiculous.

    Pros

    the platform makes it easier to translate texts.

    Cons

    usually it pays very low. 95% of the work will have a ridiculously low pay for the effort you need to make.
    support is not great too. amateurs.
    I saw this company on sharktank and the founder had a great ideia but he obviously can't make it work under these circusntances.

    Advice to Management

    make sure the people who review the work are actual professionals and not some random dudes or employees

    Pros

    There is no best reason to work here.

    Cons

    İn my experience ; I spend my hours to complete the companies sample translation test.After you publish your translation the website shows you to evaluate which translation is good or bad in 1 to 5 points.I compared my translation with the original, It perfectly matched.When I saw that I was happy.Your translation is being shown for the community review.By community I mean translators that works on.They said I couldnt pass the test and for that they cant offer me a spot as an employee without any detailed explanation.What I mean is the people that evaluating your test are employees like you.So Job options are not enough.Because of that they dont want to share these options with you.

    Advice to Management

    Sample tests has to be evaluated by professionals not employees.
