Freelancer AND Freelance Staff Member
I've worked on "both sides of the coin" at Artisan - I've been placed on freelance assignments by them with some great medium sized companies and have worked as a member of the internal team.
Their pay rates are competitive, and while they get less jobs in the Copywriter/Social Media space than some of their competitors, the jobs they do get are - more... at a much higher pay rate. They do offer benefits (if you qualify starting at 1,000 hours/year) and host a holiday party for some of their working talent every year. It's nice to feel included in these things as a freelancer.
As an internal empl ... - less
ProsRemote work, inclusive and caring, occasional free lunches/group happy hours, West Loop office location.
ConsNot dog friendly, lack of promotion opportunities (as with any small company)
