      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Good for entry level roles but that's it

      21 Jun 2022 - Project Coordinator in Dublin, Dublin
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly and supportive colleagues plus great and challenging clients to work for. Flexibility to work from outside Ireland from time to time. It's a great way to learn more about localization and start in this industry. Then you can gain experience and move to another company.

      Cons

      Very poor promotion opportunities. Low salaries for Dublin standards. If you decide to relocate outside Ireland and keep working for this company, your salary will be cut by 21%. The role can be quite stressful, and most project managers are hard to work with as they tend to 'miss' their tasks and never follow processes in place. There are only promotion opportunities for managers' friends. Some team leads don't have a clue about what they do. The company doesn't close during holidays (Christmas, Easter and so on) and there must be employees that cover those periods. Managers prefer to keep good employees stuck in the same position for ages and don't let them grow professionally when they're good at something, even if they know they're tired of doing the same over and over, and prefer to go for other internal opportunities. Salary increases are quite low. HR doesn't even bother to reply to candidates' emails that show interest in internal opportunities.

      A terrible company with zero respect for staff. Do not work here.

      30 Jun 2022 - Project Coordinator 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work hours are flexible enough Some decent initiatives throughout the year

      Cons

      Senior Management are oblivious and uncaring towards staff, as long as deadlines and clients needs are met they couldn't care less about you HR are utterly incompetent, allow bullying to happen without any consequence (I have been subjected to numerous times) Vistatec don't invest in hiring, so all teams are under huge pressure to get things done. What's worse is that there is no overtime pay so you are just expected to work into the night to meet deadlines. The salary they offer is PITIFUL, it's actually insulting how bad they pay people. I only really realised this when I left. Vistatec should be your last resort as an employer.

      Great colleagues, poor people management

      11 Nov 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great colleagues, Vistatec knows how to identify talent and enthusiasm. Some teams at the company have a more positive experience than others. If you are thinking about taking a role at Vistatec, do your research about the team you will be joining.

      Cons

      Due care for mental health of the workforce was not a priority to management. The client was always right and to be accommodated in everything, at the expense of Vistatec employees having boundaries. Any line managers who objected to this MO did not last long in their roles. No transparency around salaries, or promotion paths. Translation Project Managers and Language Quality Specialists were all either overworked or underpaid, or both.

      Nice colleagues, micromanaging leadership

      Pros

      Nice colleagues, good place to start off one's career; flexible WFH.

      Cons

      SPMs and operations team leads are not extremely competent; Program management team is quite micro-managing - some senior employees are toxic, lack basic soft skills and have a negative impact over more junior members - who end up feeling bullied and burn-out and leave the company: program team management and HR are aware but no action is taken. Decision-making is not transparent. Team members who want to grow have no real support from their managers, who lack people management skills.
