ProsAbsolutely none. These cowards don't even allow for a feedback box at the end so you can tell them they're underpaying and likely getting poor data at the second half because the survey is so punishingly long. Even if you're trying, and I always do, it is very hard not to let your attention wander in a seemingly endless and ungratifying task.
Cons1.) Get ready for 20-22 minutes of rating faces, faces, and more faces! Oh, you thought you were done? Get ready for... MORE FACES! You know the point in an underpaid study where you grimly decide to push on because you've wasted this much time already and it can't be that bad? This study appropriately punishes you for buying into the sunk cost fallacy.
2.) Along with every face, you're required to memorize an ID number. This is fine when it's a 2 digit number, but occasionally they'll throw in a 5+ digit number and this has, as far as I can tell from the debrief, NOTHING to do with the study. The only way to get these attention checks correct is either to have a photographic memory or to be very fast with copy and paste - the page automatically forwards after a few seconds. It just made a terrible HIT even worse. You're screwed if you have memory problems or you're a little slow with your mouse.
3.) And when you're done with the faces, and the demographics page, are you given a submit code? NO, MY FELLOW TURKERS, YOU ARE NOT YET FREE. HOW FOOLISH I WAS TO THINK SO. You are then hit with socioeconomic questions and multiple sliders and radio buttons. Oh, what fun we're having! Now recall [extremely specific demographics] about your childhood, and please give personal information like the zip codes of the places you grew up in, now that it's far too late to back out of this survey!
Advice to RequesterMy advice is unprofessional and unprintable.

ConsI seriously thought it would never end. Once the main task is over you have survey after survey after suvey then demographics then more surveys and bubbles.
