I have been working at Polyglot Group full-time (More than 3 years)
I have worked at Polyglot Group for more than 4 years and it is the best place I have ever worked. I have been given opportunities I wouldn't have had at other companies, I respect our founder and admire their values, and (perhaps most importantly) I love the people I work with.
My colleagues and peers are the best I've met in my professional career. The company's culture is like none other I've experienced especially because the WHOLE company (founder, management as well as the people) truly care about others around them. The company's mission is about bringing humanity back to business and they don't just talk the talk, they walk the walk.
Not only is the company multicultural, multilingual and incredibly diverse, it truly feels like coming home to a family that accepts and celebrates you for YOU (strengths and weaknesses). The founder is a great person and I believe they have the best intentions for the company, the employees and our community.
As the company continues to grow internationally there is a lot of opportunity to learn from different teams as well as diverse training and the possibility to switch roles as departments grow and new teams form.
It's a fast-paced company, so work-life balance can be difficult to manage at times, but it has improved since I've been here. And liking the people you work with helps it feel less like work.
Advice to Management
Continue doing the magic that you are doing and don't forget to communicate your plans for growth with every employee, not just management. This way, the "family" grows as a unit.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Polyglot Group (Singapore (Singapore)) in June-2016.
Polyglot found me on Linkedin for one of their Event Management software company (They did not reveal the name) and wanted to discuss with me on this role. I had 2 rounds. 1 on phone on basic introductions and interest for the role. Then first Skype interview with the same person in Polyglot about your experience in software implementation.
The interviewer was rude and impatient to listen. He will constantly interrupt you when you are talking about your experience in detail. Finally after all this - he said his client is looking for someone who has more experience in software implementation for their customers. My experience was clearly stated in my Linkedin profile before he wanted to talk to me about this role. I did not apply for this job and he found me on LinkedIn to be fit for the job. I had a schedule a early morning interview to match timezone he was from. Waste of time. Please do more research before approaching a person for a job. Or ask more relevant questions related to the skills needed for the role during the initial phone conversation itself.
