    toxic work enviornment, poor management

    Jun 10, 2022 - Anonymous Employee

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    there are no good reasons to work here. it's the quintessential toxic work environment where you're worked to death and everyone is unhappy but then they throw happy hours and give away sweatshirts to distract everyone.

    Cons

    upper management only cares about turning a profit as quickly as possible and refuses to acknowledge issues caused by their actions - they just pin the blame on someone else, client expectations arent set properly so clients are constantly frustrated with the product, writers and editors are underpaid and deadlines are tight (and continue to shorten.. hello sweat shop!) and it shows in the work.

    Pros

    Determining what makes good writing good in objective terms is an incredibly hard problem, and Scripted managed to collect an amazing group of folks to tackle it.

    Cons

    As a startup, it took Scripted awhile to find its footing/product market fit.

    Great People, Great Vision

    Pros

    Friendly, flexible, fun, and none of the negative F words. Scripted has a strong vision for how freelance writing marketplaces should work and they're miles ahead of the competition. They have a long way to go, but it's a company you can believe in.

    Cons

    Scripted went through a big re-org early this year. The change clearly forced the company off a bad path onto something with a much brighter future, but it was clearly a jarring shift.

    Pros

    Great way to learn how to freelance. Can be a confidence boost to help you get into the full time writing game.

    Cons

    Very rarely any work. You can usually pick up one or two gigs, but there is very rarely enough to make a living. The work takes a long time for very little pay.
