Pay is horrible

EmployeeWorked at Appen Global in Yelm, WA at the time of review.

What I like

The pay is on time direct deposit.

What I dislike

The pay is low.

Suggestions for improvement

Have better interaction with the employees. Actually, try to solve our issues and not push us along.

Company Culture

The employees talk amongst themselves and solve their own issues because management won't. We depend on each other.

Internal Communication

Not one real issue I've addressed has been solved. I only get the run around from department to department .

Teamwork

We help each other fix our issues. We have a whole chat room for that.

Work-Life Balance

This is a work from home job.

Support from management

We are underpaid, underappreciated and replaceable.

Freedom to work independently

Every so often we work on team projects but this is mostly solo work.

Inclusive / Diverse

We are from all over the world.

Gender Equality

No issues here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Nothing negative I have seen so far.

Office / Work Environment

N/A work from home.

Environmental Friendliness

N/A work from home.

Handicapped Accessibility

N/A work from home.

Workplace Safety

Much better than working in an office and standing the chance to be gunned down for no reason by a white American terrorist.

Overall compensation for your work

Low, not enough to pay two bills.

Job Security

We are easily replaceable.

Company Image

I am not to find of the way they handle technical issues. If there is a glitch in an app, it is deduction from our tiny pay. Like it is our fault?!

Career Development

This is what they do: Here, read this, take a quiz. If you pass your in. No real training here.

Challenging Work

It's repetitive. And, being accepted for other positions within the company is unlikely, I've been trying for a year.
