Good work, but perhaps managment and staff training too much to overcome
Sr Logistics Engineer (Tech Writer) (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 11, 2016
Skip this one. Its a quagmire. Company willing to take shortcuts and forgo real role up your sleeves engineering analysis. Trivializes efforts. Bad mindset, willingness to overlook actual, helpful engineering analyses. Yup, just get the job done. If the client wants updates, they'll contract for more work. Kind of a disservice for the client, and professionalism.
Could be a good company. Work is genuine and good, if you can separate it from staff and management. Major efforts supports JSF. Work not hard, if you do it on your own. Unknown if client really wants LSAR backing into Tech Pubs, or at least a certain amount of engineering. You'll have to figure that one on your own. It just might be that there's too much to overcome, even if very knowledgeable. Teaching both engineering and LSAR/Logistics is almost insurmountable. Management would have to be hands-off, letting you do the job.

Good intentioned people and eager, but you can't get there from here. Third Tier Employer for Logistics & LSAR. Young staff, untrained, short on engineering experience which makes training more than a challenge. Local management ignoring that not helpful, they listen, but don't. They think they know the effort, but things fall short when trying to explain inherent database difficulties and trainees have to be willing to do they heavy lifting, studying, working on examples. and eagerness isn't a substitute for mechanical & electronics
Company has Logistics staff at sister location. Some help, but they too won't get involved with overbearing local upper manager. One down the road on mediocrity,
  more... hard to turn back. Good intentioned, but forgetful of roots as Vets
Upper manager in Indy is a tough cookie, somehow well meaning. Some sister company management knowledgeable of LSAR, but micromanages efforts.

Pros
Small company, nice atmosphere, free coffee, people are genuinely nice
Cons
Local upper manager gets in way of work, management underplays staff short on formal training and education

Good place to work, but not a career job.
Tester Technician 1 (Former Employee) –  Corvallis, ORNovember 19, 2015
Contract workers at another company's site. Great shift managers, and co-workers. Upper management cares more about the numbers of product put out for the contractor each month then the employees' welfare.
Pros
Discounts at nearby fast food locations.
Cons
No benefits at time of employment.

My tenure here at Lionbridge
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 26, 2015
Working for Lionbridge was the most challenging job that I have had to date. Building a business within a larger corporation, while performing a specific service for that company, is very complex.
Overall the management is spread thin, which makes working for them stressful at times. There are many professionals within the company, but after five years with the company I cannot find the proper work life balance.
Pros
challenging, advancement opportunity
Cons
improperly managed, no communication, no increase in salary

The lessons learnt are over the top but the pressure will make you physically sick! They push you to close government deals that are notoriously slow. Make sure your commission structure is real and in writing.

Fixed Pay, No Progression, Glorified Agency
Data Collector (Former Employee) –  UKMarch 11, 2015
After working at Lionbridge I can only offer my experience;

Fixed Pay, the standard salary is not bad to be fair however with no career progression or financial bonuses based on performance, this can feel very like a 'dead end' job.

Vague job description, almost all employees I have met are all contracted under the same job title despite vastly different roles, some of which far exceed the stated role profile.

After working for Agencies in the past, Lionbridge certainly has that atmosphere of disposable employees and the lack of career prospects. On top of this, they have strict rules with regards to using in-house systems to record daily tasks & time taken per task as well as recording own working hours. With a zero tollerance view to people unable to record hours (I was demanded to record my absence hours on their internet based system while I was absent from work after being hospitalised, with the threat of disciplinary action if this was not completed by my standard finishing time I must add)

Lionbridge is a poor company to work for, however, for a stop-gap or an experience builder, the roles available are quite suitable for a moderate wage.
Pros
moderate salary
Cons
poor in-house hr systems, poor communication, non-existant management

If you are a Drone
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAFebruary 17, 2015
If management takes a liking to you then you may be ok. otherwise good luck surviving this hostile work environment.Co-Workers are cool people most are recent college grads. There is not enjoyable aspect to this job, it was a terrible experience. Also if you cannot teach yourself how to do the job, good luck cause management sure will not. Even though it is an entry level position.

Nice and flexible hours but it can also be a downfall
Medical Consultant and liaison (Current Employee) –  FranceJanuary 6, 2015
Nothing to say about specifics about the company; when you receive a request to work it may be a good project but the negative part is they would need it ASAP. As mentioned before the down part is they request your service quickly but their turn around on their pay is not good at all. It takes them 6 weeks to pay you.
Pros
felxible hours
Cons
no well paid, and takes too long for reimbursment
