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

    Pros

    I'm usually paid within a week of submitting my pieces. DM contacts are friendly, helpful and professional. Ive always been more of a producer but I've become a better shooter since working as a filmmaker w/ Demand. Their feedback is usually solid.

    Cons

    Requirement information is not always consistent, Sometimes 2 people in authority can tell me opposite info in a 5 minute span. The pay is pretty low. And the network is not as dependable as it could be.

    Advice to Management

    From my end its flowing rather well. Talent Producers dont seem to have any casting-talent- or producing experience so it makes it hard for filmmakers sometimes. Pay incentives for pieces that require no edits would be nice - Since the pay is low it would show appreciation for professionals who do it right the first time.
