The Upwork platform is great, well polished, and user friendly. When it started, it was great, great balance and services. As time went by and management changed several times, and the freelancer base grew, it became more and more profit and employer oriented. With a fee of 20% for all earnings, it is considered one of the most expensive platforms, and smaller projects are less and less worth the time and effort.
Very large platform, user-friendly
Excessive fees, not freelancer-oriented
