    Pros

    Great team spirit and nice people to work with; you learn a lot when coming to the company right after uni

    Cons

    Extremely low salary; feeling to be just an anonymous number and nobody cares, if you quit; if you are unhappy, your manager cares but has no power to change anything or help you; company grows and earns but doesn't give anything back to their employees; upper management seems completely detached from lower entry levels, like they don't care about them; no matter how many people complain, nothing ever changes

    I worked at TransPerfect full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Back in the office days they had free coffee and fruit. I realised I made a mistake working there after my first month or so. Interesting clients. Some colleagues were nice. That’s it.

    Cons

    Would be here until tomorrow writing this but... team lead was a joke, same for group mgrs, zero soft skills and faaaaake and toxic environment all around. Poor PMs. Skype drama. But really, it’s really fake... as someone said it here it’s like kindergarten for adults.
