    • Career Opportunities

    • Senior Management

    Current Employee - Freelance Writer
    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    -Write what you want, when you want -Get paid often -If you get lucky you'll get a good editor

    Cons

    -The topics to choose from are generally miscategorized and aren't explained. -Though they advertise their pay as $18-$25 per hour, I've yet to see an assignment that pays more than $15 per assignment. So you can make $25 per hour if you submit flawless copy that's compiled within 1 hour for a couple of articles but the chances of that happening aren't good, especially if you want to have some facts or substantial references. -The editors aren't necessarily knowledgeable. You always get a different one, whose name you don't even know and I've had articles incorrectly corrected. Worst part is that your name is attached to the junk produced.
