    I have been working at Appen for less than a year

    Pros

    You can work from home, Flexibility,

    Cons

    Low pay, you need to pay one month to get invoice. You can submit it in the next month and get paid after another month. They don't pay on time. Once, I took part in one project. It took me five days and they don't want to pay. Because I did more work than required. 😌 Very disappointed. You don't have a report how are you paid, what work is rejected and why.
