I suppose if we stay in the job it's because on balance we think it's generally a good job to have, but I was interested to see what colleagues would change if they could! Perhaps if everyone posts a single item we can vote up each answer.

I would like to see more entrepreneurial thinking on our part (private market) and more clients who understand the value and the input that goes into high-quality interpretation.

Colleagues who seem to think, that they are brighter than the listeners they are supposed to serve.

Well, yes and no,Andy! Of course I disliked Hindu andJapanese speakers ( in the sixties they really didn't know how to pronounce English),Italians speaking English ( or what they thought was English) and .....Irish speakers.Sorry, I never got accustomed to them. But what a pleasure to intepret a good speaker! And there were quite a few of them.
