    I worked at Welocalize for more than a year

    Pros

    None that I recall. You do get benefits after 3 months but you only get 3 paid vacation days a year.

    Cons

    Worked for Welocalize for over a year in Sunnyvale onsite at Apple Inc. The HR team there is pretty much useless. They never want you to know any of your rights and if you are working under contract with them they never tell you when or why your contract ends. They literally call you after you leave work and tell you your contract has ended and you may not come back. You cannot even come back inside and retrieve your...

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the respect they deserve by explaining their rights in HR and being a little more clear about what their contract means. Its very humiliating.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Welocalize for more than a year

    Pros

    Possible raise every 6 months, interesting projects to work with and the salary is high for a Localization Tester.

    Cons

    Not secure at all. At the moment that they don't need you they throw you away like a napkin. Good to start but keep looking until you find something where you have more stability. There is no space for growing because of excellence. Only because of friendship with management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people because of friendship and start doing it because they can be a good manager.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Welocalize full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People in the management is always very friendly. They works with top companies giving you the opportunity to work in high level environments.

    Cons

    They are located far from where you have to work, so you barely know them. If you want to re-negotiate your salary they pretend to not understand.

    Advice to Management

    They are super friendly, and try to make things super easy for you. But you will met them only once in a while.
