Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Development Manager

I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

- You can learn a lot very quickly in a very short time - Surrounded with nothing but incredibly smart and driven individuals. - Compensation is well beyond my expectations, and more than suitable.... - Exciting projects all across the company that keep you interested and focused. - Amazon is changing the world

Cons

- Can be overwhelming, very steep learning curve - Can be difficult to keep up if you are not self motivated

Former Contractor - YouTube Partner/Independent Contractor/Content Creator

I worked at Maker Studios for more than 3 years

Pros

* PayPal optional, the payment was also done by snail mailed cheques (UK)/checks (US) no mater where you live. (If you choose so). For US residents, direct bank transfer possible. * Not so hard... entry requirements for partnership * Offers for campaigns * Referral program * Royalty Free Music * Merchandise store to sell your own T shirts online * Community forums with great helpful moderators * After the buyout, it felt great to be part of a Disney owned company * Equal treatment and no discrimination based on ethnicity or country.

Cons

* Minimum $50 threshold for payment * 1 year contracts which can be renewed and if you want to leave, you have to send a support ticket before it is renewed. * Not much help to actively increase... your subscribers although, tips and tricks are taught to you. Just don't expect the company to hand hold you to your dream subscriber count. You have to do the hard work, and use the Network as a helping tool. * Huge layoffs in 2017 which removed many small YouTube channels. * Now Maker Studios is Disney Digital Network so support tickets to the old Maker aren't answered from 2018 at least.

Advice to Management

Accept small channels again into the network and see how it goes. Being more vocal and transparent through blog posts and communication helps in building good employee -employer relations. Also,... active help for the needy and very small partners would make them appreciate the company more.
