I worked at Upwork full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The best part about Elance-oDesk is the company culture. My co-workers are not just my peers but also some of my close friends. Having an open culture where everyone is friendly and working for the same coming goal makes it easy to come to work everyday and really enjoy what you do. On top of that, you get to work from home every Wednesday! At Elance-oDesk, we truly believe in our mission; therefore we always put ourselves into the shoes of our customers to get a true understanding of our product. Overall, working at Elance-oDesk has truly given me a lifetime of learning opportunities!

Cons

The only con for me would be the long commute but they offer great commute perks and work from home days to offset that!

Advice to Management

Keep showing the amazing company culture!

    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.

    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!
