The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to work remotely.
No obligation to go to the office each day and avoid traffic and loosing time on the road.

If you have trouble managing your time this isn't for you. You get paid by task not by the hour and if you don't know the textbook you by heart you can make half of what they state.

However if you do your homework this can be an amazing opportunity .

is a good place to start your adventure with localisation. One gets to learn a lot. People fun to work with. Management not so good. A lot of work no bonuses. Hardest part is you do not know if the management sees the good work you do, no motivation.
Pros
good place to start work
Cons
no bonuses

Job Culture
A typical day of work might either include a micromanager breathing on your neck and sending over 15 emails for the same topic or an absolutely indifferent manager who doesn't even know your name. I learnt that no matter how unprofessional the attitude is, no one, and I mean not even the HR will do absolutely anything to make things better.
There are no salary augmentations, no bonus, no coaching to learn new things. The evaluation when they are bad are asked to be rewritten to match the bell. You are a slave of the customer, not there to help, improve or even show them new options. No. You just shut your mouth and move files.

There are people who spend their whole day in Facebook, over the phone talking or chatting and in the kitchen. Then there is a small group who has all the client's, responsibilities, workload, stress and no help.

You will be asked to lie on your timesheet to hide the level of occupancy. In the last year, two different county managers left their post. Over the past five months, some people have had four different managers. The organization changes every single day and you have no idea where the business is going.
Pros
Close to a metro station in downtown Montreal
Cons
oh, yes wait, they won't be there anymore: moving to Brossard

Lionbridge Canada provided me with a great first experience in my field. I would definitely recommend it to people looking to start out in the world of translation.
