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

    Avantages

    The job flexibility was great and I was able to get a good relationship with a long term customer. We communicated very easily through the interface and we very easily exchanged projects from him and work from me. I loved the job and only gave up because I really didn't have the time to do it. I was well paid as well, which was a great bonus, and the user interface allowed me to keep track of my earning and hours worked really easily.

    Inconvénients

    None really. It was great.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep going! Your system is great. It would be useful to be able to screen out the silly job offers like "Write a 5000 word computing book for $10".

    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%.

    Avantages

    Interesting jobs posted, rewarding work.

    Inconvénients

    Too competitive. Potential employers don't reply (not Upwork's fault). 20% to Upwork till you earn $10K is steep.

    Conseils à la direction

    Go back to 10% or less taken from new earners. Insist that clients at least acknowledge proposal submissions. Insist clients pay at least 15USD/hour.

    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

    You don't have to look too hard to find jobs. You'd always find a job perfect for you. I looked for writing related work and there were many offers with a decent pay.

    Inconvénients

    Not many. Except it can only be extra work. You can't make this your primary work.

    Avantages

    Surety of payment in hourly jobs

    Inconvénients

    There are many, especially since they acquired Elance, which has led to some very high handed treatment of freelance workers (and maybe clients, but don't have enough experience to went about it.)

    The main objective of this review is to bring their recent unjustified termination of freelance accounts. A couple of days ago I received an email from them stating that they are terminating my account as it had been inactive for last couple of months. Now, if it had been specified in their prior policy that inactivity for a specified period would lead to such termination, I would have been fine with it.

    But there was no such information in terms of use or company policy. Now, I had been using Upwork for last two years and have raked up more than 100 hours in work along with two dozen jobs. I had worked very hard to build a good profile (overall rating above 4.80) and had even put up with some ridiculous client demands for the sake of it.

    On top of that their review system is an absolute joke. I was promised that my suspension would be carefully reviewed if i submitted my qualification documents and listed my reasons. And, I got their reply within a minute, which seemed to be auto-generated.

    Conseils à la direction

    It is time you guys review your heavy handed approach.
