    I have been working at Demand Media as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Work whenever you want if work is available
    - Work at your own speed/pace
    - Can network with other contractors on forums and blogs
    - Paid twice weekly
    - Easy and non-stressful work

    Cons

    - Although guidelines and training are pretty comprehensive, it would be nice to have more formal training on how to properly check duplicate titles
    - No benefits
    - Paid for each duplicate title checked so don't expect to receive hourly pay.
    - You are not guaranteed to have work available so could experience bouts of dry spells, so don't depend on this to support your living expenses - strictly supplemental

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

    Pros

    Some editors actually provide decent feedback to make your article more engaging. The pay is decent and the site does supply helpful information.

    Cons

    Gee, where to start? Articles, though there are a lot of them, need to be more specific. Many of them are VAGUE and need to be thoroughly researched before even claiming the title. Of course while looking to see if the title would be something you want to write about, someone else could grab it. Many of the articles are How-to and focus on cars and DIY. If supplying a picture, you must choose from a limited file of pictures the site supplies. Most editors should not be editors. It's not always their fault though. DS has so many rules that must be followed, there is very little wiggle room for creativity.

    Advice to Management

    More topics, less cars. Screen the hired. More pictures!
