    Pros

    There are many great things about this company from the technology, to the customers to the commitment by the staff to create innovative solutions. What I truly appreciate is the emphasis on creating more than just a place to work, but an innovative community where new thoughts and ideas are encouraged and respected. The leadership team, and especially Danny Rajan the CEO, works hard to create an open environment of communication and respect at all levels of the organization. What I particularly like about Danny is his willingness to foster new ways of thinking. It's a great place to work, and its growing.

    Cons

    We have many single points of failure.

    Startup like culture. Great pay. Innovative technology.

    Cons

    Since it still at a a startup level, when sales people and management are out, it gets kind of lonely in the office... but that's subjective.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at SDL Government full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Super-smart leadership. Exemplary work ethic at the top of the organization. Well connected with very successful track records. Mission focused. Committed to the cause. Unique product combination in language technology, leading the way in foreign language social media, informal language and post editing machine translation (PEMT). Even better roadmap. I was disappointed to be caught in a RIF/layoff right when we were turning the corner. But the CEO and SVP were professional and communicated effectively with me in that process. At the end of the day I trust them and would do business with them or work for them again. If you are reading this you are doing your homework. Don't be distracted by the sour grapes. 2015 was a tough year. I wish I was starting now and not a year ago. Timing is right to make a big impact.

    Cons

    Company transitioning from a rock solid legacy machine translation engine to a suite of integrated, enterprise software that hit a couple of bumps in early '15 in that transition. A couple of key people got out of dodge in the midst of that process. Frankly this burned some people out. Tough year. For those who stuck it out, the bumps are now smoothed out. The product is now winning competitive government evaluations and the upside is huge. The CEO is a never say die, very driven, very determined leader and if you lose focus, he will hold you accountable. It is precisely this kind of drive that paid off to get SDLGov over the sophomore slump hump, but the pressure rubbed a few folks the wrong way.

    November 4, 2015.

    We encourage our employees to provide constructive feedback on their work experiences, so that we can constantly improve our workplace environment. Feedback should not include malicious personal attacks that are offensive, false, defamatory and libelous. A fast-paced technology start up environment is not for everybody, and different people interpret leadership styles in different ways. We are disappointed to hear our environment was not right for you and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. We strive to create an exceptional workplace environment that focuses on initiative, innovation, mission accomplishment and personal responsibility.
