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

    Avantages

    They used to be rather good when I started (as an oDesk freelancer) in 2014: The fee was only 10%, you could see your competitors bids and profiles, the support 'existed'... even the typography was very legible.

    Inconvénients

    Despite the tremendously abusive ToS I signed when I started, month after month since oDesk merged with eLance, they are devoted to downgrade the quality of the site: Constantly raising fees (last time I checked they were 20%), absurd requirements, increasingly opaque bids, "premium profiles", job-success indicators altered without any warning of explanation, and so on.

    And, well, their servers are constantly experiencing downtimes. I almost forgot to mention the clumsy typography they chose for their new design and the horrible and flawy messaging system. Some sections of the site, especially the ones related with your money, are just mazes.

    Most clients are scammers and the remaining are just rude, as a norm. But I found nice people, especially from Europe, that were very kind and even payed more than agreed as an acknowledgement for my job. However, they are just rare exceptions.

    As a freelancer, you are totally exposed to your clients, but customers are behind a brick wall, so, many times, you do not know who they are before signing a contract with them. I could tell the case of a customer who had evident psychopathic traits (I fled from him ASAP after requesting from me to be abettor of criminal acts) but who had a lot of 5-star ratings I cannot explain.

    I decided to leave one day I received an obligatory request to be interviewed through Skype in order to check my identity (after 3 years and dozens of high-quality jobs and excellent reviews!).

    As a final insult, when they asked the reasons for leaving, 4 out of 5 possible answers were just infringements of their ToS (e.g.: "I just agreed to work directly with my customer" something that is totally forbidden). I suspect they ask that in a purposedly designed maneouver oriented to sue you if you click the wrong answer. After clicking "I just finished my tasks here", not even a "Good Bye and Thanks for All, Folk" message, but a login screen.

    Conseils à la direction

    None, having into account they NEVER listened to any of my suggestions or fair demands.
