I worked at Elance

Pros

Good work live balance. Casual and relax work enviornment.

Cons

The group is a bit "clique-ish" but the company throws weekly social event to have employees mingle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management hire people from big name/prestigious schools but there are smart people who went to no name or unranked school.

    Pros

    - Elance is a dynamic company with excellent job opportunities for talented people. Personally, Elance has been great for my professional growth.
    - Opportunity to work with smart and dedicated people is a great benefit.
    - Many employees seem to stick around for many years which is a good sign too.
    - The company is moving in the right direction in an exciting industry. I am looking forward to seeing where Elance is in a year or two.

    Cons

    The office is getting a little cramped and getting a conference room on short notice is tricky. Fortunately, the office is getting redesigned early next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. The leadership team is moving in the right direction in terms of growing the business. I am looking forward to seeing where Elance is in a year or two.
