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
A typical day working at Thebigword, would involve completing various menial administration task for management throughout various teams In the Translation department of the company. I sent emails and made phone calls to clients and to freelance translators and various other tasks that are very company specific. Fun work place with supportive management. I also trained new members of staff on all the software the company uses and all the different types of projects that they would encounter within the role.
In the middle of a warehouse estate, was a little woring walking to my bus stop 30 mins away.

Great people that are intelligent and funny
As part of my role at thebigword I used to receive project requests from clients regarding translation jobs for specific languages. While my fellow colleague analysed the source files received from client to check the number of words and the specialism required for each job then I had to find a supplier if not available in house. I had to make sure the translation quality was up to the mark and delivered in time to client. As meeting the deadline as well as quality of each project was crucial part of my role.Management was always helpful where I needed any assistance. I enjoyed my work due to it's diverse nature. Meeting the client's deadline was a bit tricky part of my job that I achieved throughout my job period at thebigword which was reflected in weekly based KPI.
diverse nature of work
i had to stay longer at work than usual hours sometimes
