    Pros

    Being able to set your own schedule is nice. They also provide bonuses for consistent good performance. Being able to keep yourself sharp on academic skills by applying them to make sense of the submitted papers is also a plus. Management is generally helpful and supportive. Their system of performance review, while not perfect, lets you keep abreast of how well you're doing from assignment to assignment.

    Cons

    As a contractor, the tax situation is some what more complicated. Obviously, they do not offer any benefits to contract employees either, so be prepared for that. Occasionally, the work flow gets a little bunched and you have to scramble a bit. The difficulty of the editing assignments you get vary, so it is sometimes difficult to make plan out your schedule. The principle downside, if you are working this full-time and not as supplementary income, is that you only get paid once a month, on the 15th.

    Advice to Management

    Shift to biweekly payroll
