Great place to work and learn in a fast-paced industry with smart people.

Marketing (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsElance is a great place to work. Management is solid with a real commitment to excellence that permeates through the culture. There is a strong focus on hiring well, and as a result, the team is smart and the people who work there are can-do people. There is good teamwork across departments and it fosters an environment that is very solution-oriented. The industry of online work is a fast-paced, dynamic one which presents interesting work across the board from engineering to marketing. The culture is supportive and friendly (and family-friendly). The people are fun to work with, the work is challenging and the world of online work is fascinating and growing rapidly. Overall, a solid, stable, fun and interesting place to work.

ConsFor me, the only downside was my commute. Management was very supportive and let me adjust hours for my commute and even offered work from home days.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
