1. A good opportunity to be a Work-At-Home OPI with a status of a self-employed worker; 2. Flexible work schedule - a great perk for a semi-retired individual; 3. A great work team to be a part of.... Knowledgeable, courteous, easily accessible administrators: contact center operators, IT specialists, coordinators, accountants etc.; 4. A superbly designed, user-friendly Interpreter Portal that allows for a top-notch quality level of accountability bilaterally/bidirectionally; 5. A highly reliable system of communication; 6. Negotiable hourly rates; 7. Sufficiently intense flow of incoming calls from clients (plus - another great bonus for an OPI! - an opportunity to operate on a pre-scheduled mode "ad hoc"). Of note: all of the above makes merely a short list which is to be continued, as LanguageLink keeps on growing and improving. Blessings unto you, dear colleagues, in 2023.
No significant negative aspects became known to me throughout the entire time period of my work history as an OPI with LanguageLink. The only exception, perhaps, is the occasionally malfunctioning... virtual "counter" of missed calls; at times, this tool would negatively interfere with the controller of the Interpreter's Status, thereby automatically making an interpreter unavailable unbeknownst to the user. This minor problem is certainly manageable, though may leave a bitter "aftertaste"...
-The people that work here love this place and are truly passionate about what they do. -Great work-life balance. -There have been a lot of new people hired over the last 2 years and they seem very... focused on making Blizzard inclusive and a great place to work again. -Good work benefits including medical, dental, vision, 401k matching, etc. -Recently relaunched BlizzU, a program that provides plenty of opportunities to learn and grow your career. -The Irvine campus is one of the coolest offices I've ever seen. -It seems like leadership tries to be as transparent as possible, even if it leads to mixed or negative results.
-Your annual bonus is more dependent on how the company is doing, not necessarily reflective of how well you've done your job. -No longer a full-time remote company for most, they are trying to get... everyone back in the office for a hybrid work schedule. -Not the most competitive in the industry in terms of base pay.
