    Je travaille chez Upwork (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    I worked with many clients on Upwork and currently I'm doing some projects with them too. Let's assume you are shooting gun. Even though you are having a great gun, you can't hit target. Why? It's because you don't have enough skills and experience. Upwork is a great and convenient, but you need to do something more to get desirable result. If getting jobs is just your hobby, this site is not for you. But if you are diligent person, you can get more than you expected from it.

    PS: I'm not an Upwork employee, just one of software engineers.

    Inconvénients

    Currently some people are having difficulties because Upwork fee. It's difficult to get opportunity for new people. Only talent, diligent developer can be succeed.

    Avantages

    Good place to create a career as freelancer

    Inconvénients

    They ban you permanently for sending more than 10-15 failed requests per month.
    If you hit a slow patch sometime don't get hired, they suspend your account permanently, Without any Warning, and all your hard work is gone forever.

    Conseils à la direction

    Absolutely furious with account suspension policies.
    They aren't transparent.

    - Flexible working hours
    - You can decide on what project you want to work and choose a client.
    - You can have an income rate much above market if you live in a cheaper country than client you work with.

    - Train your support team.
    - Test changes before releasing them.

    Je travaille chez Upwork à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    It has a lot of clients and lot of freelancers because it is created by the merger of two very old freelancing websites i.e. oDesk and Elance.

    Inconvénients

    Because they have now a LOT of freelancers so they just removing without any prior warning or notification.
    The website has become more creepy and buggy.
    The website is down A LOT for maintenance or without any reason.
    Looks like they are unable to handle it.
    Whopping 20% commission at the beginning of project.

    Conseils à la direction

    The new CEO after the merger have done public apology but removing freelancers won't makes it a good platform.
    Bring oDesk and Elance back we do not like this merger because it dropped the quality.

    J'ai travaillé chez Upwork en contrat temporaire (Pendant plus de 10 ans)

    Avantages

    Flexible schedule and all the pros of telecommuting

    Inconvénients

    No peers to share information or consult with. No code reviews or sanity checks. Poor employers often do not know how to verify the results. This is the world of contract work.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the employers for more full-time work. Very nice to see. Long term commitments lead to better quality work and relationships.

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

    Avantages

    A platform where you may get hundreds of jobs in just a few day.
    All customers are under one umbrella so no need to run here and there to get work.

    Inconvénients

    This platform is not freelancer friendly.
    I am the guy who never get:
    a. A single negative feedback,
    b. A single account hold,
    c. A single dispute with customer,
    d. A single request for money back

    I was a top rated contractor with 95% success rate, Instead of this they saw irregularities in my account and permanently suspended it without any reason. I ask several times that what was my fault but they never told me. I earned more than 15000usd , spend more than 2000hrs , everything get shattered in a few seconds. They suggest me not to write to them as their decision is final.

    Conseils à la direction

    You should not be biased, why you are spoiling carriers, There should be no dictatorship, You are not a part of North Korea Government. We lives in countries where we respect democracy, you people should understand this. Initially we think it is our company we are growing with it , and this company is growing with us. Now I understand you grow enough and you hardly need us. Today I , Tomorrow Someone Else, slowly slowly everyone will leave you. If it is possible that in a few years you reached to the sky then it is not impossible that you will be back on earth again. Overall you all have to come back here. Learn something from Steve Jobs last speech.
