    I worked at oDesk as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Independence, flexibility, be your own boss.

    Cons

    The people you work contract with are exploitative and expecting a lot of work for zero money. You need to defend yourself and turn down a lot of crap in order to make it here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a tiered system for quality. I don't want to vie for space with the $3 and $5 bids from people who provide low-quality shmaltz and it gives the employers false expectations.
