    The management is great, they keep the site running well, it's just a matter of getting hired and doing a good job.

    Avantages

    It opens doors for entry levels of all genres. It helps with portfolio building, and the system helps ensure the freelancer gets paid.

    Inconvénients

    I recently fell for a scam through an invitation on upwork. There are warning heading about not talking to employers off of the website for this reason. So long as warnings are headed, there shouldn't be a problem. Other cons are getting paid under what you should be. Employers set the price, so you have to pick through what you want. It's not a steady pay if you don't get hired by a long term job or constantly take up fixed priced jobs.

    Avantages

    Literally zero positives. Joke of a company that i strongly advise you to stay away from.

    Inconvénients

    - They changed the Upwork fees by 10% making it significantly harder for people to make a living and get jobs. I now have to charge almost $5 more than i was charging before hourly because of this change. When clients see that, they'll simply look elsewhere for cheaper work, not realizing that it is Upwork forcing me to do this. Essentially they are taking money away from hard working people.

    - The platform is almost daily down for maintenance, making it extremely difficult to find jobs at times and causing problems while trying to work on current contracts or contact employers.

    - Their support team is incredibly incompetent. They can't actually do anything for you so I'm not even sure why they're there. No matter who you speak to, they'll simply tell you that anything and everything is "out of their control".

    - Their policies are incredibly ridiculous. My profile is constantly flagged for not following profile guidelines often because of my profile picture. Every time theyll tell me that "it needs to clearly show your face and be a clear, high quality, professionally taken photo". My photo was taken by a professional with a top of the line DSLR. It also clearly shows all attributes of my face (not that an online client actually cares about that anyways). My profile has recently been flagged for having a link to my portfolio on Behance that showcases my work for clients to view if they are either trying to verify my resume for a job i applied for or if they seek me out. This has been flagged for direct contact information. This just simply isn't the case. They instead expect me to upload my project files to my upwork profile. The terrible thing about this is that they have a very low file size limit for uploads. What this means is that i have to sacrifice the quality of my work drastically to be able to show potential clients what my work looks like.

    I could honestly rant for hours at how terrible this platform is. PLEASE do yourself a favour and do not get involved with Upwork; it'll only cause you a huge headache in the end.

    Conseils à la direction

    Just let the company crash and burn or have someone who actually knows how to run a business with fair and reasonable business practices to come in and completely overhaul the company. What a joke!

    Je travaille chez Upwork (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    — A lot of cheap jobs;
    — A good system of recognition of problem customers;
    — Fair protection of earnings;
    — A good system of motivation.

    Inconvénients

    — Terrible support (a little bit responsive to the premium members);
    — The website is a powder keg because as I can see all of the new features and fixes implementing on the main server without any tests. For example: after latest update I lost some Job Success points (rating). Support agreed that. And I think it`s terrible that for this reason freelancer can lost his reputation.
    — Not so many job posts with a good budget;
    — Was chosen as the vector of simplification and primitivization of interaction tools for freelancers.
    — Many dumping freelancers.

    Conseils à la direction

    Change the CEO. Cease to create a platform for their own needs and start listening freelancers. Conduct public polls and voting before implement new features.

    Avantages

    I think upwork gives artists and designers a platform to gain experience at the prices they wish to set. I also really enjoy that it takes the place of what would be an internship, giving experience and work ethic to people in the comfort of their own homes. It also guarantees payment for the work that is done.

    Inconvénients

    A lot of the work is not worth what the customer is willing to pay.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the work!

    J'ai travaillé chez Upwork (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    None, sorry, the website has no interactivity, the interface is difficult, there is no transparency for understanding and learning about the hiring clients.

    Inconvénients

    Too many to list here, but too much exposure for freelancers, no customer support, very low paying jobs with no tools for working with the system in order to accommodate the client and the job they wish to be done.

    ADVICE TO FREELANCERS: Join and then go straight to the Community Forums and read them. Check in several times a day because posts are taken down if the UpWork moderators think they are too negative. You will read about all the problems freelancers are having from technical issues to fraudulent job postings.

    Conseils à la direction

    I don't have any advice for management because there is none, and massive effort is being made by the owners to automate the site entirely and have as few humans running the site as possible, and those people will be located in the Philippines, not San Francisco.

    Avantages

    Work anytime from anywhere. That is good.

    Inconvénients

    Many of the jobs are very low paying. Some clients are very poor quality.As a freelancer you will get a 1099 and will have to pay all the taxes. Always consider that when accepting a job and a rate of pay. Freelancers are required to submit ID before they can work.

    Conseils à la direction

    Clients should be vetted just like the freelancers are to ensure they are honest and real jobs to offer. Why you brag about being a global workplace, it feels more like global exploitation.
