Freelance Writer (Current Employee) – Remote – November 16, 2018
You work at your own time. They protect the freelancers from cons. Flexible payment methods. The hardest part of the job is getting clients since they are plenty of freelancers bidding on the same job.
FREELANCE WRITER (Current Employee) – Anywhere – November 14, 2018
Though their major issue is that some contracts have different currencies and sometimes on the other side of the world. Which there is nothing wrong with it, I would like to get some cash for the amount of work I put in.
Medical Biller/Coder (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 3, 2018
Working through Upwork its ok. You choose your own pay rate but Upwork has a 20% fee which makes what you earn a bit on the lower side. It has its perks, you can get hired on the spot and start working the next day.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Online – October 30, 2018
The company does a horrible job of taking care of their workers and they should be disgraced to call themselves customer service reps when they provide no customer service at all. Go somewhere else there are many other platforms.
It was difficult to find a job, since there is a lot of people ,looking, you need to be fast, the opportunities of finding one were low. But when you get to find one the client is very specific and nice, and pays well.

My freelancer and company account was suspended due to violation of rules without possibility to fix / correct my mistake. I spend months of building my freelancer profile with clients and now its all waste.
Freelance (Former Employee) – Canada – September 25, 2018
Unless you work in a niche field, don't bother applying for a profile on UpWork. They limit the amount of freelancers in their marketplace and will deny your profile. If you're just starting out as a freelancer, it's a waste of time.
Copywriter (Former Employee) – Remote – September 22, 2018
I have submitted 7 proposals and every one of them have been denied. I bid less than their budget and I have experience but nobody will give me a chance to show I can do the work. This company sucks! The people posting projects don't really want to pay workers to do the work! It's very hard getting jobs on UpWork. I do not recommend UpWork to anyone. Don't waste your time on a useless site. I would give 0 stars if I could.

VP and Deputy General Counsel (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – September 17, 2018
Management is quite transparent and there are regular company meetings. There are regular company events for team building. The most enjoyable thing about the job is that Wednesday is always a company-wide work from home day - when employees are supposed to use the Upwork.com online work platform for their own work, remotely.
