    I have been working at Ultius full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've seen a handful of reviews here on how work is limited. But honestly, if you're efficient and willing to take on a variety of projects and learn, you can make really decent money. I average anywhere from $3-4.5k/mo depending on the seasonality, except for the slow months of September and December. Great client and writer support, for a large company, they have a great portal that allows you to share feedback.

    Cons

    Client revision requests can be cumbersome at times.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have been working at Ultius full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I love my job and can work whenever, however, and wherever I like. Not everyone can handle that freedom and responsibility which is presumably why there is a dissing review on this website

    Cons

    There is not a lot of team interactions. All you, all day. That's how you play.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real.

    I have been working at Ultius full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At the moment, I am a bit irritated because new writers aren't even being given the fair chance to prove themselves. There's always a catch. I've read many positive aspects from writers about working for Ultius, but these writers have been working for the company as freelance writers for at least six months. The pay is certainly fair for the work the writers do. Paying by the hour would be even better but to me, the pay...

    Cons

    It is extremely difficult to reach the 20 minimum amount of orders new writers must complete in order to apply to have access to graduate orders, regular orders, and urgency orders. This makes no sense, and it's absolutely frustrating to refresh your 'Take Orders' page in your account multiple times throughout the day only to have just one or two orders showing up at max. New writers should be allowed accessed to at least...

    Advice to Management

    Allow new writers to see more than just two orders in his or her own account. Stretch it out to like eight or nine, and don't allow them to take urgency orders or graduate orders starting out. Not only is this more fair, but it guarantees new writers the chance to prove themselves being able to choose from multiple assignments in the regular queue category. This would also make it easier for editors to work with these...

    I have been working at Ultius full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have found my dream job at Ultius, and am going on my fourth year as a writer. Ultius has allowed me more freedom and success in life with the ability to set my own schedule, chose my own jobs through interest and availability, and develop strong client relationships. I get paid to learn and help people, and I feel like my dreams have truly come true.

    Cons

    It would be great if a 10 minimum for a page was the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being so supportive!

      All of the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The work culture was amazingly positive.

      Not a con against Ultius at all. The only reason that I am no longer there is a back injury from another job.
