Negative Outlook
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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Upwork 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 Management

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

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Upwork full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Business opportunity appears interesting as oDesk is market leader.
    oDesk believes in work from home, and that is a big plus for me. Many of my co-workers work effectively from remote locations.

    Cons

    Lots of old technology in use, and people are reluctant to implement change.

    Advice to Management

    Managers rarely give feedback.
