    Pros

    Remote, potentially challenging and educational

    Cons

    The company sends you an email, stating their interest in you, and they invite you to write 2 long writing samples, promising to get back to you in 1-2 weeks. This is a completely empty promise, as they never got back to me, and I've heard similar accounts from other applicants. If the company has no serious interest in you as an applicant, they shouldn't ask you to do 2 significant writing projects for them, and then proceed to fall off the face of the earth. Their evasiveness doesn't bode well, especially since they're a company that operates remotely. Moreover, it quickly becomes clear that the zealous enthusiasm they treat you with in the beginning stages is completely empty marketing talk. They want to reel in as many applicants as possible, and when they find what they want, they'll drop you like you're a piece of dirt.

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

    Pros

    Flexible and the communication is like the speed of lightning ! Very friendly editors and feedback is also given straight away!

    Cons

    Monthly payments. That's all. If you budget well I guess it's not too much of a con.
