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

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.

Not recommended - good place to learn about the translation industry but bad working conditions and company ethos.
