I worked at Demand Media as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

They pay in a timely, reliable manner. Unlike other content providers, they don't expect writers to earn a certain amount before providing a paycheck. If you're just beginning a career as a content writer, this is a decent place to start.

Cons

They have very high standards for low pay. I'm talking about for the general pool of writers. There is a high income bracket for more experienced writers. The amount of available work is ebb and flow. There are times when the queue of available titles is very low or nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Pay your writers what they're worth. Keep the flow of available titles consistent.

    I have been working at Demand Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While we work for demand, each business unit operates separately like a start up except you aren't expected to work crazy hours. Pay is great. People are awesome. They like to promote from within.

    Cons

    Mostly just the bs people right online about demand. Otherwise its great.
