    I have been working at Elance-oDesk full-time (more than a 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.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Elance-oDesk.

    Interview Details

    One phone screen and onsite, got the offer. People is nice and fair on the process. The management is really dedicative and even call you on the weekend to discuss the offers detail. The general feeling by just looking into the management background, it looks like the company is doing well and should have some future.
