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

    Pros

    There were a few interesting projects. And flex-hours, if you need that.

    Cons

    Poor pay and absolutely no benefits. No opportunity to grow. Office is more like dark basement. No way to park.

    Advice to Management

    Unprofessional

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Sit on your butt and do nothing but click your life away if you like that good for you.

    Cons

    Managers if they dont like you they will go to HR make stories up and have you called into HR to be told why did you say this. Managers are unprofessional and if you are friends with the manager good for you promotion. Also since you contracting for apple and work for them you are not given anything and apple gets the credit for the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being the unprofessional and talking trash about your employees

        I worked at Welocalize full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Okay pay, relaxed dress code, chill supervisors

        Cons

        No variety in work, tedious work flow, no PTO or paid holidays

        Advice to Management

        Either treat your employees like employees, or just hire contractors. It’s not a great company policy to force fulltime employees to take a two week unpaid vacation during the holiday season.
