I have been working at Elance full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The culture here is so fun to be a part of. Everyone pretty much knows each other, food and drinks are always stocked and catered. Management is great and is always looking for ways to improve. Feeling of a large company but with the aura of a start up.

Cons

Too much food means I never leave, also parking is occasionally an issue (if that's even an issue)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep pushing us to provide great work, we can reach our goal!

    Pros

    The title speaks for itself. You are helping clients and freelancers meet their professional goals. You are at the forefront of how work will be managed. Everyone cares and wants to do the right thing and get to the truth. You are expected to contribute quickly. Highly collaborative environment. There aren't silly egos and politics to deal with and the leadership team really wants to work together as a team to provide clear vision and direction for the organization. Shockingly drama-free environment.

    Cons

    The place is growing fast and the company needs to start thinking actively about process, controls and accountability without adversely impacting the culture that exists today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on the big challenges of growth and scale. It would be a shame to lose what we have.
