Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Demand Media as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Make your own schedule
Work from home

Cons

Did not make enough to keep working there.
Editors can be real jerks, sometimes they change and publish the work under your name without your consent. Not just small mistakes but sometimes they rewrite the entire body of work and publish it under YOUR NAME~ wish I would have used a pen name.

Advice to Management

Listen to the writers. Editors are not God!

    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.
