    Pros

    I have worked for nSight for more than a year, and I've done both on-site and remote editorial assignments for them. NSight helped me make the transition out of a frustrating full-time job, so I will always be grateful for that. I love that they bring the work to me -- I don't have to market myself or negotiate anything directly with clients. They work hard to make sure that the assignment is a good fit for everyone. My current assignment has worked out wonderfully. I actually made less per hour at the full-time job I hated, so I could not be happier!

    Cons

    Work can be sporadic, but that is a challenge with any type of freelancing. I can imagine that working for nSight might be frustrating for someone who needs a solid long-term plan, because work is sometimes offered on short notice and deadlines can shift around. That does not bother me, because I keep my schedule flexible on purpose. I always have the ability to turn down work if I'm not available.

    Advice to Management

    For internal projects, it would be great if off-site contractors were given a better sense of the big picture and how the roles/ steps fit together. Sometimes the people running the project assume everyone understands the context for their piece of the project and who's responsible for what. A flowchart or two would help a lot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at nSight.

    Interview

    Very simple initial interview process. The hiring process for contract work was less than smooth, where they would ask for commitments from the contractor but not deliver the work to the contractor when they expected. It worked well for the agency, where they didn't have to pay contractors a salary, but it was a little less than on the up and up.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.
