    StarStarStarStarStar Current Project Manager in Seattle, Washington State

    They offer 4 weeks PTO that you start accruing from day one in addition to two floating holidays. They also just changed their health package to include a fully paid for plan which is nice. Also EAPs are available like free counseling etc

    Appen makes an effort to ensure our benefits are wildly mediocre. Living in Silicon Valley surrounded by some of the top employer brands in the world, the benefits provided simply don't compare. They also make a point to scale their benefits depending on where you live in the world. For example, our coworkers based in the Philippines receive significantly less which is unfortunate.

    There are no benefits as as independent contractor and you pay you own tax.

    There are no benefits besides the work being flexible and remote.

    There isn't a benefits package through Appen Connect. You're on a six-month contract and you get paid based on the projects you work. That's it.

    4 weeks vacation every year

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Social Media Evaluator in Fairfax, Virginia

    Great for side-hustle type of work, if you have between one and five hours a day you can commit. Each project has differenly hours each week that must be met; choose one from several that fits for you. Pay is always on time. Training is ok. Pretty straightforward. After several weeks, you'll get bored from a project. Work on your own time, as long as you work the required hours per week. Takes a while to get a response from their Support team if you get stuck on something while working - but they do reply. No social aspect to the job.
