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

    Pros

    Diverse workforce. Some benefits. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance are minimal, and based off of if management likes you, not actual merit or skill. This is why so many people brown nose the management and waste their time socializing here instead of actually working. Then this is why the client complains about having such poor quality data, and why management complains about not having enough time to do anything... well duh, when you waste time chit-chatting...

    Advice to Management

    Promote people with actual skills and who are able to lead. If you’re going to engage in favoritism when giving out privileges and promoting talent you could have been smarter and more subtle about it... the blatant favoritism involved when people were favored over and promoted over others was GROSS. Control your testers better. Don’t let your client or upper management bully you into making decisions that aren’t good...

    I have been working at Welocalize full-time

    Pros

    The work really isn't that difficult, which is nice. Good enough pay for the work if you're only providing for yourself.

    Cons

    Feels like a modern day sweat shop. Dark basement with no windows. Can't talk to your coworkers in person (like taking an SAT test). Super mundane and repetitive. Will literally make you anxious if you're a socialite.

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

    Pros

    Diverse work force. Flexible schedule. Some paid time off and (as of recently) some paid holidays. 401k and health care benefits. Depending on the client you have the work style can be a night and day difference.

    Cons

    Workload does not match the pay. Very stressful at times. Projects can change on a dime and, depending on the client, your work life can be quite lovely or very frustrating. Very competitive, if you want to move up you have to be absolutely perfect in everything you do. Contract work, so you're at the mercy of the client. At times it feels like the company sides more with the client than with their graders when issues...

    Advice to Management

    This applies to the Houston lab: Re-evaluate what your project managers are truly worth in this high-employment market place before you lose great assets and they get picked up by another company. Put proper management structure in place instead of relying on one or a few people to take care of large amounts of people and projects all at once. Make better decisions for the long-term gains and not the short-term gains....

    Current Employee - Linguistic Tester in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    You get to work on the relevance of client software to users and see what is going on behind the scenes. Sometimes shocking, can be fun or highly interesting. Since the office is always expanding and hiring, they want more hands on deck and once in a while hire assistant managers from among the current testers. Can easily get people you know to apply and be offered a position (since they're always hiring it seems), and...

    Cons

    The job title says "Linguistic Tester", so I thought this job would be directly related to linguistics, but it really isn't and doesn't require linguistics training sadly. Can turn tedious and repetitive, and if the client decides to change guidelines suddenly, you may be thrown off your beaten track and forced into learning your role all over again. No paid holiday + forced 2 week holiday for the end of the year season....
