How are career development opportunities at Accdon?

Pros

Learn hot-of-the-press findings from some exciting new studies from around the world; hone your writing craft in the form of writing scientific commentaries/evaluations and journal recommendations; work from anywhere in the world, from home, coffee shops, or anywhere your heart desires; choose the volume and type of projects that you'd like per week; the managing editors are well friendly, responsive, and are native English speakers (which is not the case for many other editing companies)

Cons

Some of the manuscripts that you will have to edit are not well-done studies, lack novel findings, and/or are poorly written to the point that editing/evaluating can be incredibly cumbersome; you will only get a steady volume of projects once you have established yourself as an excellent editor; it can be difficult to control the precise volume and timing of jobs that you receive per week, which is the nature of the industry; the pay is decent but still fairly modest if you have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral training; this kind of position is not scalable and does not offer much room for advancement, but it is a great option if you no longer want to be in a laboratory focused myopically on one topic and instead want to be exposed to a breadth of research areas

Advice to Management

Cons

Insufficient feedback No training is offered to inexperienced editors; hence, the company is mostly fit for only experienced editors

What are co-workers like at Accdon?

Pros

The pay is pretty good, far better than some other companies I edited for. And, there is actually a human that you can communicate with. Other companies don't have anyone that you can actually talk to, so that becomes a very impersonal relationship. I found the Accdon people to be friendly and helpful.

Cons

There is relatively little feedback to the editors about what they are doing right or wrong.
