    Pros

    Words can't explain how grateful am I in working with Appen as an on-site full time employee. Nowadays, it is so rare to find a company that is being progressive without compromising the well-being and professional development of each employees. Appen provides healthy working environment and work life balance. Employees are the top priority. Not to mention that Appen walks the talk when it comes to being an "Equal opportunity Employer" I work in Appen Philippines and I am proud that my employer gives chance to all gender preferences, age group, and even differently abled individuals may it be deaf, orthopedic, and etc.

    Cons

    So far there's none, I believe.

    I have been working at Appen part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can work from home, but other than that it's garbage.

    Cons

    There are no jobs, I've been looking at the list for months now, and I'm more than over-qualified for this sort of thing so there is no reason other than these guys being utterly useless.

    I worked at Appen part-time

    Pros

    The tasks are very simple and easy to perform

    Cons

    It takes way more time than they describe to complete the tasks. Consequently, the wage is too low compared to the hours you put in to get it done(If you are doing it right, of course). Also, I couldn't get an answer out of them when I had questions regarding the changing payment method and I never got one. The payment will be delivered for sure and problems with the app were handled within a few days for me to finish the project, however. As anyone can perform the tasks(Repetitive and easy), there are no career opportunities or it can be considered as any viable experience. You should ask yourself how much your time is worth.
