No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Upwork (More than 3 years)

Pros

You work from home and you work with some great people.

Cons

You get nothing working for them. No benefits, sick time, vacation time, flexibility you normally get with a work from home job, and you are absolutely replaceable.

Advice to Management

Care more about the people you employ and maybe they will work harder for you.

    Please ease the transaction fee and try to value important freelancers in a greater way. Increase the connects for experienced freelancers thus they get motivated.
