    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Twice a week payments are reliable, no billing required.
    Article topics provided, no queries required.
    Good money source when titles are available.

    Cons

    Copy editing is random and inconsistent...and does not always follow guidelines.
    Writers have a scorecard determined by random and inconsistent copy editing. This scorecard affects the number and quality of articles available to the writer.
    Articles are odd and sparse. There is nothing much to write at Demand Media.

    Advice to Management

    Value writer's more on reader's feedback than copy editors.


  2. "Reliable income for a little while"

    Pros

    The pay is relatively good, especially once you develop a system and become more speedy and efficient. Most of the editors are helpful and polite.

    Cons

    Suddenly, the pool of available articles will dwindle to almost nothing, and hundreds of people will be competing for what little there is. Anyone who is relying on that money will be abruptly disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Warn writers when they won't have any work to do so that they can find other jobs.
