First time job
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  RemoteSeptember 26, 2018
It was a first job out of college. Long hours and low compensation.

Lots of fun events that make young people stay.

Management is okay if you're on their good side.

Great working from home!
English/Spanish Remote Interpreter (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJuly 6, 2018
I enjoy working as a remote interpreter for Transperfect. It is very convenient and I decide when I will or won't take calls during the day. I also enjoy the fact that when I have questions or concerns regarding the job, I am able to contact a representative from the company.
Pros
Working from home.

Underpaid and under appreciated
Remote Phone Center Interpreter (Former Employee) –  Oracle, AZMay 16, 2018
Going rate for free lance interpreters are at least $25/hr. Starting rate is $15/hr. Working a remote location provides minimal to no tech support and if you have a problem, management will not accept technical difficulties as an acceptable reason for logging in late. Interpretation for clients are very challenging at times as clients will start speaking even while you are speaking.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Substandard health insurance, minimal break times and "lunch" break, no tech support

Remote position. Work from home
Remote Over the Phone Interpreter (Current Employee) –  Remote currently fron Lodi, NJMay 11, 2018
Remote interpreting is an interesting position working from the convenience from your home yet can be somewhat isolating as well.

some of the limitations as a remote interpreter is that you are not always eligible for positions for advancement.

Okay temp job
Interpreter, Translator (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYApril 12, 2018
Overall an okay temp job. It was as needed so basically not a job that one could rely on to pay the bills. It was a supplemental option of employment. Management was not always accessible. Hardest part of the job was that if there were no assignments, there was no work for you to do and thus, no money to be earned.
Pros
flexible
Cons
no benefits

Toxic Environment
Account Manager, Financial Planning and Analysis (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 15, 2018
University feeder program, churn and burn. Overworked and underpaid. Management does the minimum, but there is no sense of pride. Culture is antagonistic.

Energetic and young workplace
Director, Business Development (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 7, 2018
TransPerfect's culture has long been awarded. Over the last few years and under the very public shareholder dispute, the company's culture began to erode. Company politics became more important than ever and often of greater importance than the work being performed for clients. It's not all bad as there are still many terrific employees at the company. I simply feel the company lost it's way when many senior level managers seemed to be jockeying for position while trying to appease warring shareholders. This positively affected some people's take home pay while at the same time burning others. Once the dispute is completely resolved, hopefully a collaborative and welcoming culture will return.
Pros
Entrepreneurial, opportunity, growth, place to learn about business
Cons
Inconsistent pay, work/life balance difficult for most to achieve, politics

Fixable Issues
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 26, 2018
The interview process alone took over 4 months
Lack of communication is very obvious - upon hire, it is not the new employees job to go searching through a massive company for where their work equipment is - if this is an issue that has been brought up numerous time, then fix it.
There is a lack of teamwork for pursuing new lines of business where industry competitors are having success in
The compensation isn't even competitive for the area
There are issues in communications between colleagues, if there is an issue in fitting in with the team, they will make it obvious - very childish, but when these issues are present at the top then it is bound to work its way through the organization
Pros
Good Service
Cons
lacking confidence in being a part of the competition, communication issues, low pay, issues at the top

Terrible workplace
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  New YorkFebruary 26, 2018
Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this company. It is the most dysfunctional and corrupt company i have ever come across. They make false promises to get you to join the company and NEVER deliver. The sales department is basically set up as a pyramid scheme, they take advantage of the sales associates and a few people up top pocket all the money. The quality of work produced is quite often terrible quality as they falsely advertise the experience of their linguists. There is no work life balance, you are expected to work day and night. The only benefit to having worked here is the couple of great people i befriended.
Cons
Everything

Poor Management
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZFebruary 13, 2018
I wasn't being compensated for the amount I was expected to do. It's a stressful environment and you never feel secure in your role. There weren't any opportunities for advancement or raises. There a micromanaging culture and as good as you are at your job, you aren't trusted to do your job without someone over your shoulder. Good luck!
Pros
It's a job
Cons
poor management, stressful, no opportunities for advancement.
