Lionbridge is a great side job with some perks of a regular job: retirement benefits and sick/vacation leave.
I work from home, so there isn't much I can say about team dynamics
Support from management
I wouldn't say I receive support, so much as Lionbridge making allowances for my situation and limited ability.
I've never had any vocal or in person interaction with anyone at Lionbridge. There are opportunities to provide feedback electronically, but no interactions with any co-workers.
Freedom to work independently
We set our own hours and choose within certain parameters how many hours a week we work.
There has been the occasional "challenge" to encourage increased work hours. But nothing to merit a team spirit.
I don't know about the corporate environment, but the opportunities seem to be available equally between the sexes. No discrimination.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I don't know the percentage of older employees, but I've found Lionbridge to be accommodation to my physical limitations and would think they would be the same for older employees.
I doubt that there is much room for growth here. If I am able to fully recover my health, I would expect to find other more challenging employment and perhaps keep this job as a "side hustle"
Overall compensation for your work
For repetitive work, the pay is not bad.
Office / Work Environment
I work from home, so am able to make my environment work for me.
I have not personally observed environmental awareness.
Again, you can set your own hours and the amount, so its very flexible to your needs.
My current job is at a far lower level compared to my work experience, but I am glad that I have this job since it accommodates my current health needs.
The nature of the work is high demand with fairly low pay so I don't feel that my position is threatened in any way.
I recently developed a hearing disability and Lionbridge has been accommodating for that/they still hired me despite my limitation.
Lionbridge can't examine my workspace for safety since I work from home, but they do provide some standards for employees.
Monotonous, repetitive work.
Inclusive / Diverse
The mundane work that I do doesn't encourage new ideas, but I don't believe they suppress ideas either.
Suggestions for improvement
- Although this might be out of their means, it would be nice if they provided some options for basic healthcare/insurance. Even something as basic as an HSA. Perhaps a newsletter or something that enables me to get to know who other Lionbridge employees ar
What I like about the company
I've been dealing with a long-term illness and Lionbridge has been incredibly accommodating the the times when I can only work a couple of hours a week during my ill times.
What I dislike about the company
Work is critiqued on a black and white/clearly delineated lines. Some much of my work involves opinion, it seems that they should cut a little slack/allow for some difference of opinion.
The following benefits were offered to me
