    I worked at uTest full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The best friendly team, Strong organization

    Cons

    They can't relocate! I didn't like developers there. They were making mistakes in very simple code, which even I can fix this source code.

      "Tester"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at uTest part-time

        Pros

        Some programs have nice residual-like income. You get paid for not doing much at all. Can work from anywhere in the world Steady stream of test usually, even though you may not be qualified for them

        Cons

        They don't care about paying on time. For instance, if a pay date falls on the weekend most NORMAL and COURTEOUS companies will pay the Friday before to ensure they keep their word about your pay date. Not Utest. I was told I would be paid today, just checked my Paypal nothing. The Utest platform only says pending for my payment. That is UNACCEPTABLE. Grow up Utest. I should be paid when you say that I will be paid.

          No opinion of CEO

          I worked at uTest part-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          - Good documentation - Active community - A few interesting projects

          Cons

          - Very Low Pay whether your followign a test case or exploratory tests - Stay away from exploratory testing! The hours you spent does NOT compensate for the ULTRA LOW PAY and; - You're at the mercy of some test managers or team leads who are very sloppy and subjective. I have had many disputes with either role in the business and technical aspect of a bug.

          Advice to Management

          Increase the pay for base payouts for exploratory tests! The current rate is less than five dollar is appalling and does attract talent unless desperate.

          I worked at uTest part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Flexible timings. Some times you get interesting and challenging test cycles.

          Cons

          Many times no clear instructions in the overview. After you spend lot of time testing and find bugs, they get rejected as they were known issues to the client but they never attached the known issues lists to test cycle. No value for testers time and their efforts. Testers are taken for granted. Client who evaluates the issues is not informed clearly about utest rating policy and many times the WAD bugs gets rejected...

          Advice to Management

          Good testers will not remain with you for long unless you start valuing their time and efforts. Testers are equally important to you as customers. Don't shy away from informing customers if they are not being fair to the testers.
