    I worked at Brainfuse part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros for working here.

    Cons

    No supervisor Inconsistent feedback for improvement - no matter what you do, you are wrong No communication. When you ask for tips to improve or clarification on feedback, you will not get a response. They will just continually tell you you're wrong. Inconsistent word availability Company website is consistently down, making it impossible to reach out and try to contact them

    I have been working at Brainfuse part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun, easy, make your own schedule, can log in and tutor whenever you want as long as there are students available - As an online tutor this is good for some extra money but would definitely not work out as a full time job

    Cons

    Semi-low pay, some difficult students demanding answers, no guarantee of students to work with

    I worked at Brainfuse part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sometimes there is work (you'll be able to get 3-5 projects per day when students are in finals)

    Cons

    The pay is atrocious. They pay around $3 per project and expect tutors to provide students with in-depth comments and feedback. They take advantage of employees who've earned their higher education degrees by not even paying them a decent minimum wage. You will have to fight for projects as if your life depended on it only to be paid $3-6 per document. You're lucky if you get 2 projects a day.
