    Pros

    LOVE the sense of community, collaboration, potential for growth. Great team members. I feel Appen values you, rather than treating you as a disposable addition to the team. We really care about diversity, collaboration and responsible leadership. Good social causes in play-- really looking to see our social impact increase over the next year! Great company wide communication - very transparent in times of COV19. Weekly calls with the CEO + global team. Daily calls with my team. Impactful work- not an ant in the ant hill. Love working from home!

    Cons

    Let's be leaders in the name of AI/ML and sustainability! If AI is the future, let's lead with a sustainable torch!

    I have been working at Appen for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility, able to work at home and apply for projects that interest you.

    Cons

    Flat fee pay rate on some projects is not indicative of the actual time needed to complete the project correctly. This results in many unpaid hours. Horrible customer service for contractors. Emails go unanswered for days (if ever). Auto-invoiced projects don't get created regularly and it might be months before you get paid. (I am still waiting on payment for 2 projects completed in Nov & Dec). :(
