I have been working at Soshace full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Remote work.
- No strict requirements on schedule.
- Wide choice of good projects.
- Technology stack is based on modern frameworks = new experience and professional growth.
- Rates higher than average in Russia.
- Many financial and organizational questions may be resolved by managers.
- English practice is a natural bonus

Overall conditions are great for ex-freelancers who are used to work on outsourcing. If you have some experience with foreign customers then Soshace may become the next step of your professional career.

Cons

- Time tracker may be uncomfortable for developers who used to work without it.
- Requires some additional unpaid activities to manage your business (taxes, documents). Interviews with potential clients also take time.
- No paid vacations.
- Some work processes are not regulated by Soshace and must be negotiated directly with clients. Hence comfort of work may vary on different projects depending on client's requirements. (This "con" may even become "pro" if you have good contact with customer and able to negotiate for optimized work process and most comfortable schedule)

Advice to Management

Try to improve management strategies to reduce potential "downtime" for developers. Timeout between first interview in Soshace and first real income is quite long.

Keep up a good work!
