    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Gengo gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    - Relatively decent pay
    - English work environment
    - Convenient office location
    - Little to no overtime

    Kontras

    - Everything else
    - Management

    The company is run by two friends who seem to be clinging to what Gengo was and not directing it into what it can/could be. The CEO is out of the office most of the days and when he is in, he doesn't inspire the team with his actions/words. He tries to do it through his "fun" activities. Since he is not in the office much, that leaves his buddy and COO to basically run the place. Too bad considering the COO is a walking HR violation who laughs off the inappropriate things he says or does by simply saying "I'm from New Jersey, this is how people behave there."

    Rat an das Management

    You had your chance to learn from the outside/investor Japanese sales team that came in and observed Gengo for almost a year. You should have handed over the reigns to them and you two step aside. Since you won't do that, take a look in the mirror and try to grasp why the turnover rate is so high. On paper, the positives listed above would be a dream for almost anyone, it's just dealing with the management that is the mental drain that makes people want to leave. And get some more actionable quarterly goals, not vague hipster-sounding religion-invoking catch phrases like "build an industry-agnostic platform".

    Pros

    They pay on time. They give enough time to complete the projects. The idea of the system is quite good.

    Kontras

    The reviewers are not fair at all.
    If a customer doesn't like your translation doesn't have to pay for it, however they already have the base from which they may build upon. And they have it for free, which is extremely unfair.
    Rise the reward per word.

    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”

    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Korean-English Translator in Seoul (Südkorea)

    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 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.

    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 habe in Vollzeit bei Gengo gearbeitet

    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

    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.
