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

Pros

-Pay. The pay was fair for the amount of work required
-Interesting Work. While some of the article choices were boring, there were often fun and interesting choices to take on

Cons

-Editors were not on the same page, causing confusion and frustration for the writers
-If you're a slow writer, you'll barely make above minimum wage

Advice to Management

Get editors on the same page. I have known many writers that have decided to no longer write for your company because of the inconsistent demands of the editors.

    I have been working at Demand Media as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work 24/7, pick your titles so you write what you are interested in and what you know You can work anytime day or night, save data and finish assignment later. You have one week to finish each assignment. You can go months without writing and not get dropped, as long as you produce quality articles. They pay twice a week for finished material that has been approved.

    Cons

    If you do not have much education you may have difficulty getting enough assignments to write. You have to be approved to write about topics. It took months to get approved for parenting because so many freelancers were eligible, but it only took less than an hour to get approved for accounting topics.
