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

Pros

Prompt payment, variety of assignments, work as little or as much as you need to.

Cons

rules constantly change, not always a lot of articles to write and new editors take awhile to break in

Advice to Management

A review of current writers in your database for other assignments, rather than requesting each person interested in new or special assignments to do an application for each position would be helpful. You would get better quality writing for these new or special assignments because these are people who already know Demand Media rules.

    I worked at Demand Media as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + Wonderful people
    + Great learning experience
    + Good workflow system
    + A lot of snacks and a loaded fridge

    I learned more during my internship at Demand than my current 2 years in university. My mentor was very patient, friendly, and informative, and my coworkers made it a pleasure to come into work everyday. If my schedule permitted, I would have resumed my internship.

    Cons

    - Sometimes I didn't have a clear goal or task

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your employees with a clear goal or vision

    Bring forth assignments that are real subjects, not based on an algorithm.
