I have been working at American Journal Experts as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Make a real difference to people's ability to publish; the AJE team (well, at least my managing editor) is great about giving and receiving feedback

Cons

As a contractor, the work may be irregular

Other Employee Reviews for American Journal Experts

  1. "Flexible Hours, Flexible Income"

    Pros

    Being able to set your own schedule is nice. They also provide bonuses for consistent good performance. Being able to keep yourself sharp on academic skills by applying them to make sense of the submitted papers is also a plus. Management is generally helpful and supportive. Their system of performance review, while not perfect, lets you keep abreast of how well you're doing from assignment to assignment.

    Cons

    As a contractor, the tax situation is some what more complicated. Obviously, they do not offer any benefits to contract employees either, so be prepared for that. Occasionally, the work flow gets a little bunched and you have to scramble a bit. The difficulty of the editing assignments you get vary, so it is sometimes difficult to make plan out your schedule. The principle downside, if you are working this full-time and not as supplementary income, is that you only get paid once a month, on the 15th.

    Advice to Management

    Shift to biweekly payroll


  2. "Exciting at first, then repetitive"

    I worked at American Journal Experts full-time

    Pros

    Flexible and laid back. You could take unpaid vacation as needed with approval, which was mostly received

    Cons

    A little laissez-faire. Start up, so there was not much structure. Grueling work and hours

    Advice to Management

    Find out exactly what motivates each employee and help them achieve it so that more are willing to do more than the bare minimum
