    Pros

    Pretty easy part time work from home job for extra cash

    They actually ask you to work at least 35 hours per week, but they don't give you 35 hours worth of work to do. When you ask for more work, they go silent. Communication is horrible.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Crawford Media Services for more than a year

    Pros

    *Some awesome content to watch and archive *Flexible schedule and management *Fair compensation for work required

    Cons

    *As a freelance, contract position, it can be feast or famine as far as work that is available. *While some content is cool to archive, much of it is dry and can get boring. *Fairly steep technical requirements, especially regarding bandwidth, restrict your ability to work away from home or an shared office space. Recently this issue has been compounded by data caps in my city. For best results, you really need to have more than just regular household internet. Fastest speeds for residential services will suffice, but getting hit with a rolling outage or temporary congestion can hinder your ability to make money with this job.

    I worked at Crawford Media Services

    Pros

    Working from home and employing my useless pop culture knowledge

    Cons

    I spent about 6 hours doing an unpaid training only to never hear back from them again. I emailed several people, including who was supposed to be my supervisor, and was ignored. Funny that they say you will be compensated for training after you complete your first assignment... an assignment that never comes. Also the work is mind numbing at best.
