    I have been working at Wordexpress Corp as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn about translation, proofreading and project management
    Gain experience and training in marketing and HR if interested
    Flexible schedule and easy-going co-workers

    Cons

    Very small office, no room to grow
    Sometimes there's not enough work and things are very slow
    Very very laid-back environment

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire too many interns when you don't have enough work for them

    I worked at Wordexpress Corp as an intern

    Pros

    You learn about everything that can possibly be done wrong when managing a small business

    Cons

    When managing a business, you’re supposed to exemplify leadership, efficiency, ethics and integrity, especially in front of your employees and interns. Four crucial values that are unfortunately missing at Wordexpress. Unbeknownst to me, my unpaid internship was actually limited to doing translation work at no cost for the company. I found the German Director, whom I didn’t see much of as he was gone most of the time taking trips abroad while his employees complained about having to wait to cash their paychecks, to be somehow disrespectful and utterly awkward. Besides listening to him criticizing Americans and their values while obviously enjoying living in the US (hypocrisy at its utmost), there was not much to be learned in this intelligence-free zone.

    Advice to Management

    'Integrity'

  3. "Interning at WordExpress"

    I worked at Wordexpress Corp as an intern

    Pros

    Colleagues are nice, office location great (5-10 minutes walk to 3rd Street Promenade)

    Cons

    They utilize interns (unpaid) to do translation, editing, and proofreading projects. They tell you that upon completion of internship, you can become their freelance translators, but they pay poorly (way below industrial average).


  4. "Small Business in Prime Location"
