A nice normal office job. Not real exciting, Not great pay but stabel
Junior Java Developer (Current Employee), wakefield maOctober 26, 2013
Pros: stable
Cons: low pay
SDL plc is just a typical day job at a desk. Not much happens. it's low stress but on the other hand the salaries tend to be significantly lower than the standards at other companies in the same area.

It's not a bad place to work but things move pretty slowly and I don't see much in the way of opportunity for advancement

good job. too much work for too little pay.
Project manager (Former Employee), ColoradoMay 7, 2013
Pros: good work environment and good people
Cons: well below industry salary, inadequate training.
This is a good company in many respects. There is a very well documented process (ISO) and plenty of people with lots of experience and knowledge. The office is full of interesting, international people. And overall it is quite friendly.
The main issue is that they don't pay nearly the local going rate to its employees. This is true across offices. – more... Because of it, there is very high turnover. It's a wonder management doesn't seem to put a monetary value on turnover and therefore compensate people correctly to minimize it. Also, because of the turnover it is common to throw new employees into work without them having a proper training. Again, the negative affect on accounts and deliverables is obvious and a value could be placed on this. – less
