The feedback from the reviewing editors is very constructive and is really helping me to develop as an editor. You get offered plenty of work and therefore plenty of opportunity to hone your skills. A friend recommended I work for Cactus as a freelancer. She now works as an editor for a renowned international journal but previously worked for Cactus. She told me that there was no way she would have got her present job without the experience she gained with Cactus.
CACTUS consistently provides me with the volume of work I want, and payments are always made on time. The work is both interesting and challenging, and I have access to an on-line resource library 24-7.
I am extremely happy with the task assignment system (Whiteboard). No more emails getting lost and calendars to fill in myself - Whiteboard takes care of every organizational aspect. The freelancer has to do just one thing: accept assignments and work on them. This is really what freelancing should be like, and Cactus takes the organisational hassle out of it. Moreover, I am very happy with the steady flow of assignments. Whatever your goal, you will find enough work waiting for you, regardless of whether you do it for a living or as a hobby - Cactus has something for everyone.
I haven't worked for other editing companies, but I like that the assignments are clearly presented and often shown as part of a broader workflow, so that I know CACTUS will return the manuscript to the client as soon as possible. I like the monthly performance bulletins, which highlight areas for improvement as well as good work. When I started with CACTUS, I was impressed by how quickly I was able to start working on assignments, and I appreciate how quickly the staff respond when I have questions.
