Pros

The work is endlessly interesting. We're actually changing how people work, and in turn how they live.
You get to have an impact on something really meaningful: work and people's livelihoods
We're in a high-growth market and have barely scratched the surface.
People are really smart.
People are very team-oriented and collaborative.

Cons

Since the merger between Elance and oDesk, it does feel like a bigger company (in fact, it is)

    Pros

    People are very nice. CEO is always around and accessible. Company-wide meetings allow anyone to express their complaints.

    Cons

    Not as many perks as other startups when I was there. Interesting mix of people. Upper level hierarchy is interesting.

    Pros

    People really care about their job here, and are generally motivated by the fact that we are creating job opportunities all over the world outside of gender, ethnicity, location, appearances, and all that. Free lunch three times a week plus a work from home day doesn't hurt either.

    Cons

    The merge has been hard on culture, there hasn't been enough effort made to blend the two companies, but I have faith things will work out.
