    I worked at Demand Media as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some editors actually provide decent feedback to make your article more engaging. The pay is decent and the site does supply helpful information.

    Cons

    Gee, where to start? Articles, though there are a lot of them, need to be more specific. Many of them are VAGUE and need to be thoroughly researched before even claiming the title. Of course while looking to see if the title would be something you want to write about, someone else could grab it. Many of the articles are How-to and focus on cars and DIY. If supplying a picture, you must choose from a limited file of pictures the site supplies. Most editors should not be editors. It's not always their fault though. DS has so many rules that must be followed, there is very little wiggle room for creativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More topics, less cars. Screen the hired. More pictures!

    Pros

    Great culture and great people to work with. Interesting business and challenging work. They have a good product and room for growth and development.

    Cons

    No 401k match. Bonuses are not as much as other companies but are fair. Other than that there really isn't much to complain about. It is a good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring smart People. Listen to your smart people and do a 401k match -your people demand it! Stay open about all issues and successes.
