    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Gengo gearbeitet

    Pros

    well funded
    everyone except management team is nice.
    some benefits/perks are nice

    Kontras

    they say they work "silicon valley style", but don't trust them. they only "sillion valley style" going home 6 pm flat, without getting anything done.

    lots of stupid meetings
    lots of internal politics.

    management team have no relevant experience, no idea what to do, no commitment, no effort, no passion, no decision makings, and extremely conservative. they seem want to be paid well and stay where they are as much as they can.
    your hard work never pays off here

    if you are looking for a job here, make sure to ask more details from someone who work/used to work here before you sign anything.

    Rat an das Management

    consider all quit at once and hire better management team or sell out the business before it's too late

    „Korean-English Translator”

    Pros

    Clean interface, good guides for translators, regular newsletters. They seem to have high standards for choosing translators, and they are very transparent.

    Kontras

    Not a single job in over a year for my language pair. I haven't made a cent since working there.

    Rat an das Management

    Try to recruit work for every language pair so that your freelancers aren't frustrated at lack of work.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Gengo gearbeitet

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in Tokyo. Interesting problems to solve and huge amount of data. Multicultural environment. 6 months paid language lessons.

    Kontras

    Insane internal politics, and management-level dishonesty. Decisions are made without your input, and then you’re told afterward what the decision is. The communication is top-down. In interviews they might tell you that it's a flexible startup environment which is not really true. It seems they only want developers that do what they’re told, and on deadlines. Developers who are passionate about languages or whom have interesting ideas and want to innovate are not really wanted.

    Rat an das Management

    Should listen to people more and not just trust whatever the managers says.

    Ich arbeite bei Gengo (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    You can work anytime you have spare time from home.

    Kontras

    Not enough tasks and kind of hard to grab a job on the dashboard.

    Rat an das Management

    Would be better if they can improve customer service.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in Tokyo without needing to speak Japanese. Strong engineering team. Interesting problems to solve. Good challenges and nice office environment.

    Kontras

    Insane internal politics, and management-level dishonesty. There are also some inexperienced managers, which would have been okay, if they weren't also so full of themselves and purposefully breaking down others (in their teams!) to make themselves look good.

    Pros

    Fundamentally, Gengo is probably one of the easier ways to get into translating - simply take (and pass) their tests and start translating.

    Unlike some agencies, they pay on-time and there is a lot less hassle.

    Kontras

    Professional translation agencies (note: I said professional ones - there are plenty of unprofessional ones around) have translations evaluated by two native speakers - I translate Japanese to English, so mine would be checked by a native Japanese speaker and a native English speaker. Gengo doesn't do this (they don't even tell you the native language of their checkers). Their tests aren't even checked by native speakers of both languages. I distinctly remember issues regarding 「」 being translated (J->E translators know this can be a huge issue).

    Fundamentally, for me, Gengo suffers from one issue that most translation agencies suffer from - the concept that sentence A in one language must have an equivalent in the other language, and it must be included. Whilst this is true, it really limits your ability to produce natural translations and instead you get something that most people either gloss over because it sounds like it was written by a dolt (Gengo checkers probably have to look it up in a dictionary).

    Negative Prognose

    Pros

    As a translator you can take on as much or as little work as you want.
    Website design is fairly intuitive.
    Periodic evaluations of your translations are helpful for those with little experience looking to improve their skills.

    Kontras

    Pay is way lower than the industry standard, making this unfeasible as your primary employment.

    Rat an das Management

    Find a way to increase translator pay. The current rates are so dirt cheap it's practically slave labor.

    Positive Prognose
    Keine Meinung zu Geschäftsführer

    Pros

    In general, it is a good platform for building experience in translation. There are professional translators who review work and give very good advice for improvement.

    Kontras

    The pay is poor and the work infrequent. Overall there is very little incentive to work on the website consistently.

    Rat an das Management

    Increase overall pay and introduce a structured system to incentivize work on more technical documents.
