    Pros

    Pay slightly quicker than most.

    Cons

    Theft, abuse, lies. 100% Ukranian. You'll never know the name of anyone you work with or staff, it's all banned. They routinely steal compensation, never substantiate. I've worked for a dozen of these mills... this is by far the worst in every metric.

    Pros

    work from home and steady work

    Pros

    Lucrative CPP averaging at $6 per page with highs of up to $30

    Cons

    Getting an order on the site is hectic especially on a new account The company expects you to work on three orders for free to be promoted from probation (which are extremely hard to get). There are very few orders on the site, especially during low season.

    Pros

    Good work at home gig. Do not show the management too much high quality work or you will only receive math and science assignments having a high level of difficulty

    Cons

    Clients walk all over the agents. The agents become frustrated due to a lack of sales ability. The agents eventually try to starve the writers. There is no work from May to November.
