My work for the Montreal office was a waste of time financially, personally and professionally.
I was just told by a prospective employer that my experience at Transperfect reflects poorly on my quality as a translator, and I sadly have to agree.
Many people working in Montreal, including team leads, translators and reviewers, are basically impostors. People who really shouldn't be pretending to know how to do the job and who behave like spoiled children when faced with any kind of challenge. This includes recent immigrants playing the role of native speakers in real life. Lots of emotional reactions in what should be a professional business setting composed of adults. They corroborate their wrongness in a loop, just like a group of high-school students. Your arguments and references do not matter.
Inflated egos despite the complete absence of any inflating substance. People who really should be learning are trying to teach.
Avoid if you have the choice. You will not be a happy camper if you are above intermediate level in your field. If you are a beginner, this place will teach you how to do your job wrong. They will shape you into incompetence.
Working is better than not
Every aspect of the job from the environment to the tools
