    I have been working at About as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for writers, best for independent workers. Profitable with a lot of work. I would recommend to someone who is a strong writer with knowledge and interest in a particular topic, but be ready to produce a lot to have some success. Would not recommend to others.

    Cons

    More and more promotion responsibilities put on writers means less time to write, yet strongly encouraged to write more. The website looks looks old, poor user navigation = less trust in content by readers. This is supposed to be remedied soon, but so far the UX has not extended to individual topic sites. Little communication with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up communication on all levels.
