    I have been working at Elance-oDesk full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love Elance-oDesk. We are the market leader but still have a lot of growth and challenge ahead. The CEO and Senior management are great. They really care about the employees and the mission and provide a lot of transparency. If you do well, you'll be recognized for it and have opportunities to take on more responsibility and change roles. The work is interesting and meaningful, and we move fast, yet we have great work-life balance.

    Cons

    -It's big enough that you don't know everyone's name, you have to go out of your way to meet people
    -Whereas at another company you may manage a team, it's more likely you'll manage a team of freelancers here than of teammembers in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone knows our company values and is measured on living them out.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Elance-oDesk in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Odesk reached out to me about a position they thought I was a good fit for. The initial communication process was smooth. But the phone interview and communication thereafter was truly a bad experience. I've never dealt with such bad professionalism.

    During the interview the recruiter asked me to list what I did, understandable. Then I asked her what is she looking for. She listed some additional things, of which I forgot to mention. And long version short, we bid our farewells. Soon after I emailed her, providing some examples regarding the things she listed, of which I forgot to mention over the phone. I felt as if the recruiter was looking for specific words/phrases and because I didn't say it in the preliminary conversation, it meant I lacked experience in it, which isn't true. It would've been better if she had follow-up questions like, we are looking for XYZ, do you have any examples of those you can share? But I felt like she instantly dismissed me like a bad apple just because I neglected to list keywords she was looking for.

    So getting back to my email. I emailed her and no response. I emailed her again, still no response. I emailed her coordinator, also no response. I hate to generalize but this experience does depict a level of professionalism and integrity within the company.
