On-line Freelancing for creatives
Freelance Illustrator (Current Employee), Website-based; headquarters in AustrailaMay 22, 2014
Pros: flexibility to choose creative jobs, between contest jobs and bidding jobs.
Cons: may need to do many revisions over long hours
It's an on-line job board for those who want to freelance their skills internationally. Both freelancers and clients can either seek jobs or post jobs that requires creative works.

There's flexibility for both as employers can hold contests with monetary award instead of just posting a job for getting many artists' entries before choosing a final work – more... or artists can create works to enter that said contest without needing to be rewarded a job through a bidding quote.

It's open to all freelancers, not just artists, such as writers, data entry, web designers, etc. You can take on jobs from around the world and interact with clients on-site throughout the process.

You do have the same set of complications that you have in freelancing here too, such as long hours for revisions, time zone differences and payment/contract issues. – less

Don't Bother
Freelance Graphic Designer Freelancer.com (Former Employee), Longmont, COAugust 14, 2014
Cons: newcomers at an inherent disadvantage.
A website with nothing more than contests and clients that don't know what they want. The more thing you pay for like tests, gold membership, etc the better off you are.

Not a great place for writers.
Freelance Writer (Current Employee), Saint Johnsbury, VTJune 9, 2014
Time spent browsing job offers for writing projects, at whatever time one wants.

Self-managed.

I learned to govern my own work habits, and to appeal the needs of contract-makers.

The hardest part was the competition from all over the World, where the economy is different. Stiff competition.

The most enjoyable part was the self-made hours.

Gets the gig
Freelance Writer/Graphic Design (Current Employee), Hot Springs, ARMarch 2, 2013
Pros: new work every day, competative atmosphere
Cons: occasion overly demanding clients, client based reviews with little review from the site administration
I have done freelance writing and graphic design for about six years now, and utilizing Freelancer.com definitely made it less of a chore finding clients. Hundreds of new projects a day. The only thing is that it is difficult to get a good reputation through the site. Most clients tend to be over demanding and will leave poor reviews if you do not cater – more... to their every whim (i.e. taking less money than negotiated pre-order). Other than that, great resource for the freelancer community. – less

Very Hard to Get Work
Software Article Author (Former Employee), Dallas, TXFebruary 4, 2013
Pros: work from home
Cons: hard to get work
It was very hard to find work once you start because you have no ratings and a lot of companies base off of that.
The small amount of work I did for this company I had to fight to get my payments
