Pros

Prompt payment, variety of assignments, work as little or as much as you need to.

Cons

rules constantly change, not always a lot of articles to write and new editors take awhile to break in

Advice to Management

A review of current writers in your database for other assignments, rather than requesting each person interested in new or special assignments to do an application for each position would be helpful. You would get better quality writing for these new or special assignments because these are people who already know Demand Media rules.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of interesting and useful stuff. Very good staff and had a mentor who taught me a lot of really valuable information. Free lunch every Friday was icing on the cake.

    Cons

    Work got a bit boring by the end of it. There were days where I did nothing. Some nights I had to stay extra late (7pm).
