  • You can work from home and choose your own work hours, so long as you meet the deadline (in 22 reviews)

  • Since Cactus is strict regarding deadlines, I learn to be more disciplined and I do my best to deliver high-quality work given the time constraints (in 8 reviews)

  • But I guess there are enough smart, educated, under-employed native English speakers out there that they don't really need to pay more (in 12 reviews)

  • If you want a job done right, it takes a lot of time and you might end up with less than minimum wage ( (in 17 reviews)

    Flexibility (altho constantly pressured to work when unavailable)


    Extremely demanding standards not commensurate with pay (remote editors).
    Clients constantly revise and re-submit jobs: editors are expected to re-edit for free.
    Services overlap, which clients use to their advantage.
    Constant pestering to take new work / accept revisions to deadlines: poor life/work balance.
    Lack of timely support for remote editors.
    Corporate structure and culture are hierarchical and bureaucratic.

    No training or career progression for remote editors, in contrast to the positive opinions expressed here by in-house staff.

    Advice to Management

    1. Staff retention.
    2. Staff retention.
    3. Staff retention.

    Organize better.
    Protect remote editors from clients who constantly revise or extend their work and attempt to re-submit for free re-edit.
    Pay your most valuable asset (your editors) what they are worth.
    Otherwise, talent will go elsewhere.
