    Pros

    I love being able to log in and work on a whim. For a busy mom with little ones running around that was always great.

    Cons

    The pay could be better starting off. They are Ways to make better pay but it takes time.

    Pros

    No pros, like actually none.

    Cons

    Pay is literally Pennies, tasks are unreasonable for what you’re paid to do. A 4.00 task can take 2 days. Ridiculous.

    Insulting pay

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work your own hours. Work anywhere

    Cons

    The pay is an insult to the workers. I haven't seen a task that wouldn't take an hour atleast. Some tasks take many hours and you only get paid 3 or 4$ for that time. Alot of customers ask for things that require you t access their personal information ( login to accounts, handle billing disputes, etc). This type of work should not be done by any random contractor. These things should be done by employees. It's a huge risk for everyone.

    The most ridiculous platform I've ever seen.

    Pros

    Literally none. There are no pros. I thought at first it would be working my own schedule, but it's not like that. See "cons."

    Cons

    Extremely low-paying for the work and rules to memorize. Terrible user interface. Nobody monitors the help forum. You will routinely see tasks available that have been abandoned by others. Literally, everything you do on the platform has to be "approved" by a mentor or manager so there's no trust, you cannot finish things on your schedule because of this yet they'll tell you "don't take a task unless you know you can finish it." Let me tell you, an innocent-looking task that might be work $3 for 20 min of your time will wind up taking you down a rabbit hole of more requests from customers that you can't ignore or you'll have to unclaim the task, get dinged on some arbitrary unclaim task metric they show you no data for, and bonus you won't get paid for the work you did do.

    Great job for free time

    Pros

    Fancy Hands is a great job to have for free time. You can pick and choose tasks when you are available. There are so many to choose from such as data entry, travel planning or even paying bills. So you are bound to find something that you like. You can also access tasks 24 hours of the day. All you need is a laptop and phone. You can even do tasks while away on vacation. I find that I have learned quite a lot of things from doing the tasks themselves. Most clients are friendly and appreciative. Managers are usually very responsive as well. When you have been working for a while you may get bumped up to being a mentor. This opens you up to hiring people that work under you as part of a cohort and getting pay increases. You can also proofread others' tasks for additional pay. Occasionally opportunities arise for possible positions as lead assistants or managers as well.

    Cons

    The pay could be more. Currently, the pay is between $3-$4 for up to a 20-minute task. The only downside is when you plan to continue a task at a certain time and date and email comes into the task or the client has another question and you miss seeing it, occasionally this can cause you to lose the task. So you really have to be on top of checking tasks regularly.
