I have been working at SDL full-time (More than a year)
Having worked at SDL for the last 2 years, I see an employee passion for doing the right thing like no other. Of course there are x functional concerns like all companies but its people want success, deserve success and work relentlessly to get it. HR programs in place have matured the company and especially the recent career framework that level sets all employees. Good monthly communication from the top plus weekly CEO blogs help to make sure employees get transparent updates how the company is doing and what are the latest projects, people and functional updates that are making a difference.
Last years management of profit warnings and bonus communication are still in peoples back of mind, but SDL (with the acquisition of DLS )and recent announcements at SDL connect with clear financial news on the year end performance has given more energy to the employees.
Advice to Management
Leadership support / investment to all managers across the company needs to be accelerated. The employees are young, diverse and hungry to learn. They need well trained and equipped managers to guide them through to greater personal and business success.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SDL (Maidenhead, England) in November 2016.
Normal conversation and not interview set-up, Very easy and talk about your experience that is relating to the job description . Do bit of search into the company and show that you know what they do.
