General opinion on company overall
Analytical interpreter (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 5, 2017
Metlang offers excellent salary but they don't guarantee steady work. However they expect their employees to be available any day of the week for any shift. Other than the monetary compensation and the centrally located office there was no other advantage in working for them. As of right now there's no work available for most of the current employees.
Pros
good pay, easy work most of the time.
Cons
no steady work.

Challenging and interesting job
Translator/Interpreter (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 26, 2017
Busy and challenge job that requires translation and computer skills. This is an ongoing learning job, with diverse cultures besides the Spanish, which makes it more interesting. Management could be better, but like in any job not everything is perfect.
The most challenging part of the job is to work with the different dialects and slangs in the Spanish language. I enjoy to be able to learn something new every day in my line of work.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
There is not job security, I can be out of work for months.

Worst company to work for.
analytic linguist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 18, 2017
The only thing good about this company is the salary. Management needs people skills, and does not follow the Equal Opportunity guidelines. This company violates all ethics. This company has also had many lawsuits. Unstable source of Income. You never know when you are going to work. Sometimes you work 8 hour day shifts, and without noticed you work 16 hours and then switch to night shifts. This company is always hiring, but a big turnaround in employees because the company does not care about their employees.
Pros
salary
Cons
Management skills.

Toxic and unstable
Linguist (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 16, 2016
Unstable and toxic work environment. Instead of scheduling fairly across the board, they mostly put on schedule their favorite employees. This is why the high turn around, if you are not on the favorite list you cannot count on job stability. Employees are toxic, vulgar and gossipers. Management is unprofessional and if you are not on their favorite list forget about getting work! The employee manual on respect in the workplace is a total joke as it only applies if you are not on the favorite's list. Employees curse, are loud and totally disrespectful to the others who are serious professionals.
Pros
pay
Cons
environment and instability

Employee (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 15, 2016
Terrible Company
People get laid off due to lack of work but the company starts to hire new people while there's so many people laid off. So much lack of communication. Not a stable job at all. Don't recommend it. Will not pay your bills.
Pros
Nothing good
Cons
Health care super expensive

Very stressful work environment.
Linguist Analyst (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 23, 2015
The schedule varies every week, so you never know in advance what day you will have off, in addition work shift also varies, so you can be working midnight and the next morning also. However, you can ask for time off, so it is easy to travel whenever your time off is approved.
Pros
vaction time at anytime
Cons
short brakes including luch.

Worst!
Linguist (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CAJuly 25, 2015

Pros
Made excellent handful of friends
Cons
Lack of knowledgeable management

Linguist (Former Employee) –  VArious parts of the country/travelingJuly 24, 2015
Metropolitan is one of the best companies to work for. They show respect for employees and pay once per week. You must be willing to travel all over the country. It's like taking mini vacations with everything paid --temporary duty for your country.
