Pros

Flexible hours are nice. 0-24 for part-time. You don't have any set hours. Responsive supervisors. They do offer a 401k match.

Does Lionbridge have a pension plan?

Pros

Most Colleagues are nice, Good culture and values among many employees, lots of events and dinners during the working year. Christmas parties are good and summer event once per year. But I always felt this is to keep the salaries low while keeping the workers happy. Working with people from many different countries keeps things interesting. 5% pension from company and healthcare plan as standard. Flexi time.

Cons

A lot of long term resentful underpaid colleagues that will suck the life out of you if you are young and have to listen to them. I was very underpaid but gained good experience, overworked at times and the management know it. Unless you speak up or threaten to leave if things don't change do they actually decide to do anything about it if they believe you to be valuable enough. Management always give you new tasks to complete as work as lionbridge is fast growing but new tasks pile on until there is too much work to manage. Pressure can become unbearable if you let this happen as many tasks become your responsibility alone. Little room for promotion in some teams, lots in others. Promotion always seemed to depend on connections rather than experience/ability.

Advice to Management

Your reportees are not there to make you look better at your job, they are trying to do their job the best they can and continue their careers, it is your support they need and guidance. you cannot push their achievements as your own without resentment building up. You cannot treat them as if they are disposable and throw them away once you see they are no longer making you look good at your job. You cannot fool them or the team with excuses when they are let go with little explanation or when an potential interviewee doesn't hear back while telling them the 'job is gone'. Yes, it saves you the hassle of explaining why it did not suit you own needs but it makes you as a person and the company look bad. It makes the company look like a company that only uses people. Steady salary increases every year are needed to make the employees feel like that are not being taken advantage of. There is a lot to learn, try to put yourselves in the shoes of an entry level employee.

Does Lionbridge offer a wellness program?

Pros

Contrary to a lot of information on the web, they are a great company to work for and do pay well for worked done. People make it seem like this is some sort of anonymous organization that is hard to understand but they do respond quickly to most questions. It seems as if they want you to improve instead of just firing you. They have a wellness programs as well.

Cons

Everything when it comes to rating is not as straight and forward as the training indicates. When starting new, you basically have to forget how you interpret things on the internet and rewire your brain to the guidelines. Feedback is provided once a month, but you can be put under review at anytime and just have to wait it out for the outcome of your review, Additionally, the ratings at times seem to be very subjective and depending on your reviewer this could result in a bad evaluation.

Advice to Management

Lionbridge does provide feedback which is appreciated but in order to actually improve the performance of the raters actually hands on training (i.e., dialogue with the quality team) would reap many benefits. Additionally, holding new employees to a three month learning curve should be reevaluated. Employees get conflicting messages pertaining to completing tasks on time which adversely affects the 85% quality of work standard.
