    I have been working at Demand Media full-time

    Pros

    Growth Opportunity, ESPP, 401k Match, stock options

    Cons

    Lacking HR review & salary title/comp adjustment process in 2012. All indicators show 2013 will be a better year and that the company is listening to internal feedback.

    I have been working at Demand Media as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    First, I'm an independent contractor and not an employee -- there are significant differences between the two, as most people know. However, for purposes of this review, Glassdoor provides only two choices: current employee or former employee.

    Flexibility and the ability to choose how many hours you want to work or how many hours you need to work are truly the greatest benefits of working with Demand. There's a tremendous amount of pride in producing content from which our readers will benefit. Plus, I was fortunate enough to be invited to do more work for the company -- other than writing.

    Cons

    I don't see any negatives to working for Demand. They're supportive, responsive and helpful whenever you need it. If anything is a "con" maybe it's the uncertainty of a relatively new, publicly traded company. However, its acquisition plans and assessments by those in the finance industry are encouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent when you see it and tap independent contractors for permanent roles, since we're familiar with the company's processes and goals.
