I worked at OTR Global part-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Working from home is awesome. Pay was good, but used to be a lot better. Mostly great co-workers. Training was with a mentor, and mine was excellent.
Cons – Sometimes difficult to get assignments. I had no trouble as long as my editor loved me. But a new editor had another favorite and my ability to get assignments dropped significantly. Very difficult to get past my editor to another layer of management in order to remedy the problem. I was laid off due to cost cutting, but I got a decent severance package after 10 years of employment.
Advice to Senior Management – Recognize how easy it is for Editors or Senior Reporters to pass blame down when it is really their own responsibility. If someone is always making excuses, maybe the problem is them, not the scapegoats they pick. And if someone has a long track record, but suddenly is getting bad feedback, consider the source of the feedback.

I worked at OTR Global as a contractor for more than 3 years
Pros – Provides good training, great communication from headquarters thru regular meetings, paid trip to annual conference, great opportunity for people seeking flexibility and telecommuting positions, ideal for those desiring work with international colleagues
Cons – Leans too much on contractors
Advice to Senior Management – Offer full time on-staff positions to your contractors. This will strengthen loyalty and dedication and therefore the quality of your product.
