Inconsistent Standards, Unreliable Support

Writer (Current Employee)

ProsLearned to write to numerous topics. Reliable and frequent pay. Some rate increases. In the early days, the editorial team was supportive and committed to quality content.

ConsTotal lack of transparency with contractors led to extreme disgruntlement. Failed to resolve ongoing editorial issues. Hired writers with only glancing blow writing experience and flooded the system with WAY too many writers. Followed a typical corporate business model of race to the bottom line and not care about quality and ethical practices. Repeatedly circulated disinformation to juggle IPO and other machinations at the expense of the contractors. Failed to moderate forums with anything resembling professionalism. Blue Gaia has had her say now.

Advice to Senior ManagementAbandon all hope and the DMS ship if you refuse to opt for quality. You are a disappointment because you blew a chance to really be something of value in New Media.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Who is behind the curtain?

    I have been working at Demand Media


    Pros: Twice a week payments are reliable, no billing required. Article topics… Cons: Copy editing is random and inconsistent...and does not always follow guidelines. Writers have a scorecard determined by random and inconsistent copy editing. This scorecard… Advice to Senior Management: Value writer's more on reader's feedback than copy editors. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
