They have an office in cool Milan and beautiful Rome. However, I never had a chance to explore the wonders of Italy (even on the weekends) as the workload, payment issues and dealing with nasty superiors was too much. Speaking from experience, being and employee at The Language Grid was a nightmare, it was the worst job I’ve ever had.
The location of the Milan office is great as it's where the fashion houses, bars and restaurants are. The location is the only positive aspect of working here. That and the students were always a pleasure to work with.
That's all, sadly.
Where to begin? So many cons!
The location of the Rome office is in the middle of nowhere - you need to drive to be able to reach work, as public transport is virtually non-existent on this route to work, but that's the least of your worries!
The supervisors have personalities that can crush your self-esteem, one of them has no other experience of working in the real world and how to communicate in a professional manner with colleagues. They rant about equality and professionalism (it's even in their so-called list of company values, however, these qualities are far from reality. It's all very much PR. There have been many occasions where I, as well as my 3 other colleagues have been bullied, put under pressure and patronized to the extent of which we have all shared experiences of breakdowns and mental health stress. All this just so that the Management team feel superior. Working at The Language Grid was such a negative experience, the atmosphere was always tense due to the attitude of the Management team - it was unbearable.
See the cons above and suggestions would be to either treat your employees fairly and as adults OR close this company down.
Stop saying that a job at The Language Grid looks great on your CV - it really does not.
Take a Leadership and Communication course please.
Take more than one therapy session.
Worked in both:
Milan Office is very central to all bars/restaurants.
Rome Office is in the middle of nowhere.
Previous employee.
I have not even added this to my CV as it's just not worthy - what a mockery!
