I worked at Demand Media

Pros

It was good while it lasted

Cons

They get rid of people like they are disposable napkins
They change the rules and regulations but don't tell you. You are expected to look at the guidelines daily as they can change daily, I even saw them change from hour to hour, rarely consistent
Department leaders will tell you one thing but then you are judged by a completely different standard by completely different people
They say you will get a chance to retest if you have a poor review but instead they just remove your privileges

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the leaders in forums who are telling you what to do actually do the reviews
Actually allow people a chance to retest when they make a mistake, especially people who work for months without a bad review and then make their first mistake

    I have been working at Demand Media

    Pros

    Learned 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.

    Cons

    Total 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 ManagementAdvice

    Abandon 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.
