Low pay, email only contact with employer.
There was no way to speak to anyone directly with questions. All of the things they told us to look for as a shady operation were the ways they conducted their business.
On a monthly basis they would send out criticism of your work.
The only contact was through email. Sometimes emails would go days unanswered or not be answered at all.
In the beginning, they only paid a fraction of the time I'd spent working for them. They did not make it clear that they would only pay a very low amount for the initial amount of work that was required.
ConsOnly email contact with company, low pay for a LOT of work. Criticism with no positive feedback.

Great company to work for from home. Project managers are very efficient in communicating. Emails and questions answered in a timely manner. Transcription jobs are of good quality for the most part.
ProsWork from home.
ConsCan't project income or jobs coming in.
Flexibility of teleworking and choosing your own schedule
As a freelance interpreter at Lion Bridge, you have a lot of flexibility for choosing your own working days and hours. If you are a telephonic interpreter then you get to telework. The only caveat is that you must have a quiet place to work from. Any background noise is very distracting in this field. Even though you work from home, you are required to maintain a high level of professionalism when talking to a client.
ConsNo fixed schedule

Best working hours and plenty of new challenges. High level of professionals.
Good jumping off point
As one of my first positions post graduating it was a great experience. I was working with a good team on first lead development and then was able to transition into more online marketing related tasks.
Your Supervisors are always there for you
I love working as a Telephonic Interpreter for Lionbridge. The moment you log in you receive calls in the language your are skilled in and you start Interpreting. If there is a problem, just e-mail and the solution will be handled. Even though I work at home, I get dressed and am a professional when I put on my headset. I love helping and making a difference in someone's life.
ProsWork at Home
ConsPayment per minute could raise every year due to Interpreters performance and quality of work done
Overall cheap but fair company to work for.
The people you work with are very knowledgeable, but very busy.LB likes highly skilled people for cheap. If you're not willing to take a pay cut for your skills, look elsewhere.

Great flexibility but no advancement. Busy work schedule and great leadership. This is a good entry level management job for young professionals. Stressful clients.
It works flexible time and that the manager it's really nice
This is a great company to work with, and the salary they paid it's not too bad for our student, and the working time is really flexible, you can choose any time you want and also sometimes you can choose the workload so that you won't be too busy with your study and working.
ProsTime is flexible, easy to get into
ConsDoesn't paid much
Great, lets you work at your pace
It is a nice side job that you can pick up when you need the extra cash. The customer service is great. They work with you to help you get started on the job.
