Project Manager in Leeds, West Yorkshire
on 25 March 2020
Management is helpless and unprofessional
Management is the worst...they are fake ans show favoritism. HR is even worst...they do not really care about the employees. I had to get a therapist in order to cop.

Stressful work, inflexible staff, unprofessional attitude
I like my job as an interpreter and I have worked with this company for a while but it is getting worse with the time. The staff is very difficult to get in touch with and deal with. The operators on the phone (if they ever pick up the phone) are unprofessional and unhelpful; their aim is just to allocate the jobs and not to listen to interpreter's requirements. Dealing with them via email is equally difficult. It takes them a week to answer your request and most of the times it is urgent to be sorted out immediately. The portal where we accept the jobs is far from perfect. I have been trying to comment on some of the issues but they haven't been resolved at all. As a whole it is stressful to work with them because there is lack of coordination between the members of the staff and between thebigword and listing offices in court. As a result of this a lot of double bookings occur which is frustrating for the interpreters. Travel costs are not covered accordingly.

Very friendly
At thebigword you can meet very friendly and helpful teams. It's a great opportunity to gain your skills specially for a beginners in administrative role.

Review
Amazing company to work for but pay Was not great, I believe it has increased since I’ve left the company. Apart from that no complaints with the company.

Ridiculous
Would never work for these again, HR doesn’t know how to pay your wages accordingly.(they pay you then take it off you without reason) The interpreters don’t get paid either Avoid at all costs, they are better jobs out there that pays a lot better
