Productive and fun though

It's fun working here, just that the hourly pay need to be looked into and politics has to stop. There should be flexibility to move from one technology to another without sentiments. Also, freelancers complaints has to be looked into with utmost emergency and not be abandoned.

Pros

Bonus

Cons

Not flexible to move from one technology to another and the hourly rate is rigid. Also, percentage cut from hourly rate is too big and they also collect big percentage from bonus too, which is weird!

Challenging

As a freelancer you won't go anywhere you will work globally and if your skills are good you will get the client. I am very happy to work as a freelancer with Upwork.

Ça en vaut la peine quand on travaille fort!

J'ai d'abord été déçue sur la plateforme parce que malgré mes nombreuses années d'expérience professionnelle comme rédactrice ailleurs, j'étais traitée comme une amateur. Certains clients offrent un salaire ridicule (5$ pour 3000 mots) ou demandent tellement de révisions que ça en revient à moins du salaire minimum. Heureusement, j'ai pu trouver des clients charmants qui m'ont donné des projets très intéressants, qui me paient de façon juste et qui apprécient mon travail à sa juste valeur. C'est facile de se trouver quelques contrats quand on a du temps libre puis prendre une pause quand on est occupé et pouvoir travailler où et quand on veut. Il y a bien sûr de très mauvais clients sur Upwork, mais aussi des très bons et ce n'est pas entièrement la faute du site. Leur service à la clientèle sur Facebook est également très bon. Upwork ne fait rien de mal, mais il faut tout de même faire attention aux mauvais clients qui s'y trouvent et qui ne respectent pas les travailleurs autonomes.

Pros

Travailler quand on veut, grande autonomie, contrats de tout genre.

Cons

Il y a souvent de mauvais clients sur la plateforme.

Share your experience to help others

Great place to be a freelancer.

The only issue is the large percentage of the profit that they take for being an escrow as well as the limited number of "Connects" offered. A good place to showcase your abilities and make some extra income and experience on the side.

Flexible Schedule

Great Company to work for with work life balance. You are able to use time management skills to complete work ahead of schedule. You are given deliverables and project deadlines, so you decide your work hours.
