Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at ALS full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Standard public company with good people around

Cons

Giant elephant is difficult to dance.

I have been working at Wonder for less than a year

Pros

You can take on questions and work that you feel is appropriate for you. You will always self-assign the work. Can work as long as you like, although there is way they are making sure you are active... so you can't step away too long. They have a wiki for tools and advice to do searches, which they are trying to build up.

Cons

I've seen them react very positively and very negatively to feedback. They have a #Slack channel they use for everyone to communicate. I think there is a disconnect sometimes between people who are... offering advise, and management not taking the full time to understand the situation. The payments can be low. The amount of time for a question to be answered up to their snuff takes me an average of 4 hours, which averages a $14 payout.

Advice to Management

Please continue developing relations and ways to talk with your researchers. There is a huge disconnect between reviewers and researchers. We're thrown into a sink or swim situation. Also, create... more channels to promote and talk about web search skills. The wiki is nice, but it's not enough.
