Interpreter (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 25, 2017
Legal Interpreting Services offers interpreting and translation services to their clients around the borrows. So anytime that you get an assignment the location you go will change, so the environment.

Good place to work if you need a side job.
Freelance Spanish Interpreter (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMarch 21, 2017
I work for Legal Interpreting Services as a freelance Spanish interpreter. The work opportunities are unpredictable. It is not steady work. You will get paid 45 days after a job assignment is completed. Therefore, you must not rely on this company for a stable salary if you work as a freelancer.
Pros
Free Water
Cons
Unstable

Negative working environment, no chance of advancement
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 8, 2012
It's a very negative working environment. Only 11 personal/sick days for the first year, no vacation time, and you must work on federal holidays. Limited health benefits only after 6 months. Strict management rules and general distrust towards employees, employees have to report status and whereabouts. No communication between management and employees, suggestions and feedback from employees is never heard and dismissed. An alarmingly high turnover rate for a company with less than 15 employees. There is no chance for promotion or growth.
