    Former Employee - Content Writer in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Shmoop as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Shmoop is fun. If you're a witty guy or gal, you'll appreciate the opportunity to tell a lot of silly jokes. High standards.

    Cons

    The pay for content writing is ridiculously, almost hilariously low. The company wants folks with incredible content and pedagogical knowledge, with advanced degrees from elite schools, and yet their freelancer pay works out to about minimum wage or less. Tried to negotiate salary a bit, but was shot down immediately. I've been in this industry a while, and Shmoop's compensation is the absolute LOWEST of the seven ed tech companies I've contracted for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot retain high-quality people who will produce high-quality content without paying them a fair wage.
