    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    interesting projects (depends on end client)

    Cons

    might also depend on project, but no interest in how linguists work and their workflows, linguists are disposable and are employees only on paper, profits and client are most important, there is a clear divide between project and account management and linguists

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

    Pros

    Supervisors are accessible and flexible. If working from home is needed at times, it can be accommodated. Office has a fun atmosphere; kitchen is stocked with snacks, and there's a ping-pong/pool table. 😁 Great team!

    Cons

    Life Sciences department is overworked at times, having to regularly work over 8 hours. Systems used can certainly use improvement, often times they cause extra manual work from the PMs.

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

    Pros

    This job pays the bills. For someone who had to grind to earn every paycheck this is a nice break. Everything is done on the computer, you know what to expect when you come to the office. Flexible schedule helps with avoiding traffic. There's zero stress that comes with this job, never work weekends, no work that you have to take home.

    Cons

    It extremely hard to grow at this project, all manager positions are taken. Benefits are not great
