    Je travaille chez Upwork en tant qu'intérimaire (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Ability to bid on and submit proposals on a wide variety of different jobs, make your own hours, meet and work with people all over the world.

    Inconvénients

    Lots of scams and phishers looking for your personal info. Lots of employers paying below minimum wage and people working for that, just so they get positive reviews and ratings. Also, Upwork takes 20% of your earnings.

    Conseils à la direction

    Filter out the scammers and reduce the 20% to 10%.

    Inconvénients

    There are certain rules that now even more freelancers have encountered as over the top of strict.

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

    Avantages

    The only great reason to work on upwork is the clients you get to meet and the amount of experience you gain.

    Inconvénients

    -The company has a somewhat racist and sexist approach to approving or declining freelancer profiles.
    - Upwork has the worst customer support anywhere.
    - Regarding suspension of accounts, the company offers no explanation even in cases where a suspension isn't justified. The least you can do when cutting off a freelancer's source of income is offer a genuine reason.

    Conseils à la direction

    This company needs restructuring top to bottom. The staff needs a complete overhaul.

    Avantages

    I love having the ability to apply and interview potential clients while they interview me. It's nice to be able to find the right projects that fit with your talents and schedule.

    Inconvénients

    Upwork, being a business, does take a percentage of the rates you give your clients, so you need to make sure you're pricing everything accordingly.

    Avantages

    They secure payment for you

    Inconvénients

    -20% fee plus an extra dollar every time you pull your funds.
    -An inaccurate job success rating that is based on information you cannot dispute or correct. You could find yourself at the mercy of a secretive rating system in spite of providing quality work on time. Subsequently, the low ratign will keep you from getting jobs.
    -Slave labor rates.

    Conseils à la direction

    Give freelancers a fair recourse and ability to fix the score.

    Avantages

    Lots and lots of opportunities avail themselves on Upwork. A freelancer can also take the many tests available on the site to illustrate their level of expertise in these fields.

    Inconvénients

    Getting a response from a potential employers is not very easy unless you respond to the vacancy advertisement immediately they have posted it.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the good work. Increase the number of connects for all types of accounts so that freelancers can have more opportunities to seek work. Also, please reduce the commissions to upwork as they are too high.

    Je travaille chez Upwork (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    I'm my own boss and can choose which jobs to undertake, which clients to work with. I can also choose how much to charge for the job. And I'm not limited by hours or when and where I can work.

    Inconvénients

    Most jobs do not pay until the job is completed which is fine for small ones but then you must negotiate the larger jobs concerning payment.. You must also be wary of clients who have never used UpWork before because they may be a scam if requesting to pay outside of UpWork.

    Conseils à la direction

    For many clients requesting larger jobs, they often request to skype or IM away from the UpWork community, many times because they want to get the authors to agree to receive payment in a different form than the contractual agreement which UpWork provides. One reason I was told by one client is because they didn't want to pay the fees UpWork charged. I'm unsure if this is the case for other clients, but it was in this one. I do know that I've had several clients want to speak to me using IM of yahoo, gmail, hotmail or Skype. And because I prefer to do things through UpWork to keep a better record, have told clients to continue to work with me through UpWork - at the same time I feel I'm loosing jobs because of it. Surely there must be some solution which keeps both client and author safe and honest.
