The company is great as an opportunity to start your career. The environment is open, supportive, and easy-going. Teams usually are marvellous and everyone shares skills and experiences. The management is not so great, making the organisation an excellent stepping stone in your career, but not a place you stay at long-term, as evidenced by the legendary levels of churn.
Pros
Great opportunity, great challenge
Cons
exponentially growing expectations with little to no wage progression

Working at the bigword is good if you need call centre experience, it is a repetitive job and the only challenge you face is trying to get a booking sorted that comes on the day for a court that needs a linguist to attend asap There is no career progression and the salary is too less compared to the amount of work you put in to the business They accept people from different backgrounds but at times you will feel there is favouritism amongst managers There is nothing difficult about the job and the fun aspect is the few colleagues that make the work life enjoyable
Pros
None
Cons
Less pay

Fun place to work that can be a bit demanding at times. Atmosphere is friendly, teams are nice. Pay is far below other industry competitors. Daily work variety is nice. Offers challenges and some room for career growth.
Pros
coffee!

A typical day at work involves fixing broken files for project managers that have either been broken by them or by their linguists but they seem to want to blame engineering for it instead even though it is us that fix it. We do not get any recognition for hard work. If a project is delivered ahead of time it is usually because engineering cam up with a slick process but nobody seems to care about that, it is just the PMs that get the praise. They will not pay anybody what they are worth but continue to promise pay rises that never come.
Pros
Free coffee and fruit
Cons
Shift work with no extra pay, no recognition for hard work, low pay

I have learnt about various Adobe programmes which I believe will help me to advance in my aspiration to become a website designer. The company is a fun place to work however there isn't much chance to progress within the department I work in.
