    I have been working at Createspace for more than a year

    Pros

    I like that I can work from home, virtually from my own office. The on-the-job training is excellent; I improved greatly as an editor. When the money is good, it's great.

    Cons

    The content media coordinators do not answer the vendors' emails, which can be frustrating. CS does not pay on time, though it has the money upfront from the customers. It says it processes invoices on the due date and pays a week to two weeks later. This doesn't happen. Oftentimes, the invoice is processed a few weeks later and the vendor is paid a week to a month after that. Some months, the work flow is great; others...

    Advice to Management

    Please answer vendors' emails to improve communication. Pay on time, according to the contract and esp. since the money is already there. Pay editors based on the word count and the condition of a manuscript, not just on word count alone.
