Good work-life balance and salary, but minimal job security with virtually no career progress
Paid travel, flexible work
Not enough hours, some bookings only guaranteed 1 hour pay with their booked duration being longer, progress is
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.
Great opportunity, great challenge
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
Not easy to be a successful interpreter. Updating studying and qualifications required. Can be depressing and difficult to deal with sometimes.Good as a first job in the business.
easy to work from home
demanding, low-paid and no future advancement possible.
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.
Free coffee and fruit
Shift work with no extra pay, no recognition for hard work, low pay
