    Pros

    Work is easy and can be done within your own time frame. Evaluations allow you to stay informed of social media trends and services. Pay is monthly, but consistent. Would recommend to anyone looking to earn some extra income.

    No real cons. No advancement opportunities have been presented to me, but I wasn't expecting any.

    Good stuff, keep giving me jobs.

    I have been working at Leapforce part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours. It has been rare that no work is available
    Get paid every two weeks.
    Guidelines are straightforward.

    Cons

    No verbal interaction with anyone. There are some chat rooms, but I have not found them helpful.

    You can ONLY work from home, so if I'm on an extended vacation in another state, I can't work.

    Some instructions not kept up to date. For example, there are instructions for a "live chat" every week, but none have happened in the time I've been there.

    Very little instruction time is paid for, and you have to request policy from HR-none is given in regular instructions.

    I have been working at Leapforce part-time

    Pros

    Quick 1-hour a day job.
    Easier than driving for Uber.
    Easy concept to grasp.

    Cons

    Repetitive work
    Only 1-hour a day
    Slow to respond

    Advice to Management

    My only wish is that they would offer more work to those who would take it or who stay here for a certain amount of time (ie...you work here for a year you can do 2-hours a day).

    I worked at Leapforce part-time

    Pros

    The pay is pretty decent, I averaged 13.00 an hour.

    Cons

    I was blocked from a job, the warning email asking to explain inactivity, was sent at 3:11 pm and blocking "firing" email was sent at 3:15, I was in the middle of picking my daughter not to mention a 4 minute time lapse to reply, that is crazy, I was hoping that this was a fair legit part time company to work for to earn some extra money.

    Advice to Management

    Give people more of a chance to respond before permantely blocking them and sending rude replies back when they question the fairness of "firing" them after they didn't respond in four minutes.

    I worked at Leapforce part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Because it may soon be proven that Leapforce employees are also Google employees.

    Cons

    Extensive unpaid training
    Contract includes a class action waiver, as well as a waiver that prohibits a lawsuit
    Actual time work is not billable-- you can only invoice for the time they estimate the work should take
    The managers are faceless and hide behind an anonymous email address
    They don't abide by state of federal regulations
    They misclassify people as contractors to avoid paying taxes and benefits and giving employees access to proper legal remedies under the law
    They don't care about their people
    Employees turn on each other to the point of getting other workers fired
    Constant perfomance evaluations and spot checks are stressful
    You are actually working for Google but both Google and Leapforce are going to fight hard to make sure employees never have access to the great benefits and protections Google offers

    Advice to Management

    Step 1. Decide to care about ethics and the law.
    Step 2. Engage in an ethical and legal analysis of your business practices.
    Step 3. Be horrified at how many ethical and legal lines you have crossed.
    Step 4. Stop crossing ethical and legal lines.
    Step 5. Make restitution to employees you exploited.
