We All Loved It, But Then Overnight It Disappeared

Title Quality Assurance (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Demand Media

ProsIt was a great company to work for remotely. It paid better than any work at home job for the type of work. It offered the opportunity to work in a field that is not offered by any other company. It was a stress-free place to work. They kept it simple and devoid of unnecessary or antiquated systems. The Forums were a place to learn new knowledge and make some great friendships. It paid twice weekly, unheard of.

ConsIt dissolved all of the jobs for thousands of remote workers that had worked for the company for years. The management gave no forewarning, notice or indication and ended contracts with everyone in the blink of an eye. The jobs were taken away under the pretense of it being the employee's performance, when in reality the company essentially ended their work at home departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook into the future and develop your projects in accordance with long-term growth. Popping on the scene and dropping off the scene is not the best business model. Practice good employee communication. It's essential to communicate clearly and honestly with the people who make it all possible.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
