Pros

Elance 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.

Cons

For 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.

    Pros

    Love working here! The company overall has a great atmosphere, the team is very committed to building a business that is not just a fast-growth flame but real and sustainable; and the team is strong while being humble. A truly great place to work.

    Cons

    The cubicles are very 1990... glad they will be fixing that soon though. And we don't have a cafe and the location is somewhat of a food desert... but all small gripes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the mission of changing the world for talent and giving others great opportunities! It's very inspiring, we'd love more.
