1642 0 Net 30 - See comments Payment received: Yes. (Probably several hundred dollars). (Will work for again: I'd rather not) [Moderator's note: Not rated due to lack and age of info] I did several smallish jobs for them back in 2003. Most of the invoices were paid in a more or less timely manner, but towards the end Payments started to get slow, and took some chasing, but I did get paid for everything in the end. Since this is so long ago, I can't really say any more how late those Payments were, but the delays were enough to get me worried. - Their deadlines were also always extremely short (they do mainly press releases, at least they did at that time). I've been contacted by New-Global again fairly recently, but decided that all in all it just wasn't worth the hassle. 1/6/2011
1641 10 I do not remember any problems with Payments - Do not remember Payment received: on time (around $200.00 ). (Will work for again: NEVER) [Mod. note: Not rated due to lack and age of info.] I have been contacted by several different PMs and they called me late one Friday evening (around 10PM MST) and wanted something translated for Saturday morning, I told them no, and do not ever call me again, I do not work that way. Still they keep calling me at all odd hours and want this little job or that little job done IMMEDIATLY. It does not help to say take me off your list, they still call. 5/29/2010

1639 10 30 days - no, at least 30 days late. I had to send them reminders, which they did not reply to. Payment received: YES, even earlier (A small amount, just a letter. ). (Will work for again: Funny you ask, since one of their PMs found me on the ATA site and contacted me just last month. When I told him nicely why I didn't have any intention of working for them ever again, he insulted me, even though I had said nothing to insult him. ) My only experience working for them was very unpleasant, with the PM calling me up international to ask me stupid questions when he clearly did not know the source language at all. He really pissed me off, but there was no complaint and they never threatened to not pay me based on quality. The original fellow's name was Greg Tapper. Cannot remember the name of the fellow who contacted me last month, but it was not Farah (not even sure if Farah is a man's name or not!). 2/3/2006
