    Avantages

    Upwork allows you to be flexible and take the jobs you want to while providing the security of getting paid.

    Inconvénients

    You have to be very proactive to get jobs because there is a lot of competition.
    It can be hard to get your foot in the door because people would rather hire someone with experience, so if you don't have any experience, it's hard to get jobs and get experience.

    Avantages

    Upwork really seems like a good company for Freelancers. I can SEE opportunities there.

    Inconvénients

    Unfortunately, I can only SEE the opportunities and not partake in them because they have prevented me from verifying my location, after one failed attempt. I receive this message: Unfortunately, you cannot submit a proposal for this job post because it requires location verification. Based on your previous attempts, you are currently not eligible to verify your location. Please contact customer support.

    I have only made one attempt, and I believe my photo was too dark for recognition, I'm not exactly sure what the issue is because all I received was that message and two spam subscription emails thereafter, not acknowledging the issue.

    It's frustrating that I cannot contact upwork directly about this matter. I have to upload a post in order to get this resolved. If it gets resolved at all.

    Fingers crossed that there is a resolution. Because I see so much potential here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Please have a way that people who work through your portal to contact you directly, if you guys are going to directly affect our accounts.

    Avantages

    You can improve in any field you like, can either negotiate hourly or fixed payment, there is a form of payment protection when a client fails to pay (warning: there must be a contract in order for that to apply and client must have verified payment), service fee advantages after a certain threshold is reached.

    Inconvénients

    Initial service fee (20% + VAT), there should be more supervision from moderators, more protection for users.

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

    Avantages

    Used to be a good company, but has overstepped the lines with new fees and policies. Generally poor attitude over all with no regard for fairness and poor customer service. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere.

    Inconvénients

    Clients can be quite cheap, (as in slave wages) and the new fees suck. A Freelancer $50 contract will cost you $10 (so you make $40) and you have to pay to get extra connects. Clients also pay a fee. The amount depends on the amount, but still it's a good percentage they charge both Client and Freelancer. So it's lose, lose either way and Upwork are the only ones making real money here. Also they can unfairly decide to suspend good accounts based on not being hired. Upwork is a flooded market place and I can tell you when hiring I get a lot of 100% qualified applicants, but I can only hire the amount of applicants I need. Freelancers should not be prosecuted or victimized because they do not get a certain percentage of contracts they apply for. You will be here at Upwork! That is why my account as a freelancer was unjustly and unfairly suspended and they refuse to reinstate it. So RUN. Don't waist your time. There are better websites and avenues for freelancers out there.

    Conseils à la direction

    My advice to management would be, to review your policies and stop victimizing and prosecuting freelancers based of fact out of their control. I would advise that they revise there suspension notice email, as it is offensive and they train their customer service people better as I have found them on a few occasions to be dismissive and rude. I suggest that they take better care of their freelancers and clients. I want them to know they have lost at least one good freelancer over this and 3 businesses. Very disappointed with a company that I have recommended for so long. I will no longer be recommending.

    J'ai travaillé chez Upwork (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Work from home
    Possible supplemental income
    Maybe an option if you are a new freelancer and need to build a portfolio--good luck geting a job.

    Inconvénients

    -20% fees--depending on project cost, this can mean you lose hundreds.
    -Suspect proposal submission process--do clients really see all proposals; only the quirky algorithm knows
    -Job Success is NOT accurate--and disfavors hourly projects
    -Low pay--many clients are small business who pay very low rates--and freelancers accept so they can obtain feedback but drives down the value of all on the site.
    -The will hide/suspend your profile i you don't get jobs--basically they want to weed out the freelancers who aren't earning and therefore not bringing in money to Upwork. Never mind that the competition is harsh with significant underbidding
    --They make it difficult to submit a request for help--you will run in a loop to find the email. Basically, they don't want to hear from freelancers

    Conseils à la direction

    Go back to Elance because Upwork is the detritius of the gig economy
