Corporate Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 15, 2018
Clear path to promotion, close management contact. The people are wonderful, and everyone is committed to the job. You get to work with people from all over the world. The company has offices in the top locations of every country it inhabits.

company events, good pay
overworked, no room for advancement, high turnover
English/Spanish Remote Interpreter (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 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.
Remote Phone Center Interpreter (Former Employee) – Oracle, AZ – May 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.
Work from home
Substandard health insurance, minimal break times and "lunch" break, no tech support
Interpreter, Translator (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – April 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.
Director, Business Development (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 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.
Entrepreneurial, opportunity, growth, place to learn about business
Inconsistent pay, work/life balance difficult for most to achieve, politics
Account Executive (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 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
lacking confidence in being a part of the competition, communication issues, low pay, issues at the top
Project Manager (Former Employee) – New York – February 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.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – February 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!
It's a job
poor management, stressful, no opportunities for advancement.
