Fun and productive online workplace
Filmmaker/Producer/Video Editor (Current Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: work on my pace basis
Cons: no benefits
A typical work day would include purchasing costumes, setting up studio including: lighting, sound, camera, and talent. This would also depend on the day but video editing would be the majority of the time taken in a day.

Good way to make some extra money in your spare time.
Oustide sales and marketing (Current Employee), Orlando, FLNovember 12, 2013
Pros: fun, no boss, free time job
Cons: below average pay, pain in the butt filmmaker team.
A friend of mine set me up with Demand Media Studios. Would be very hard to make it a full time job if you have to pay any bills but it is a great way to make some extra money if you have the talent for the job. A brief description would be you go on YouTube, Linkedin, and other sites and try to find talent that is specific to their field and offer – more... them the opportunity to present videos for eHow and Livestrong. If you have some spare time and have an eye for people who are good on camera it is a great way to make extra money. Downfalls would be that the pay is not great and the filmmaker team you have to submit the projects to are a pain and a little picky when it comes to shooting locations. Also they do not pay their talent so you have to convince people that it is worth it for the promotional aspect of being on their websites. – less

Keep changing the way they pay and make assignments
Freelance writer (Former Employee), Work from homeMay 14, 2013
Pros: work from home, did have a good set up
Cons: low pay
This company was easy to write for, once an application is approved. That is, in the beginning this is how it was - about two years ago. They have good writer resources, clear guidelines, an easy-ti-use website and forums for writers. However, they changed their method of pay and giving assignments, without any warning. Suddenly they required a new – more... application for every type of writing - business, lifestyle, etc. and a lot of writers, like myself, said on the forums that they weren't accepted, even though we'd been writing for them for years. My work has appeared on well-known sites, and suddenly it's not good enough. The pay also went down drastically. It has gotten to the point that they have high expectations for which they will pay $15. When I applied I had no idea the pay had dropped so much. If you're interested, go ahead and apply, but don't set your expectations too high. – less

Great to work from home, but hard to stay on staff
Writer (Former Employee), OnlineNovember 29, 2011
Pros: work from home, flexible schedule, no quotas
Cons: inconsistent standards, fluctuating requirements
This is a great job to start out as a freelance writer, but the company has fluctuating standards that are not applicable to both the writing staff and the copy editing staff. The article submission process was pretty straight forward, but did not give much lenience if a copy editor turned one down.

They pay almost nothing.
