Overall Satisfaction with Upwork

We've been using Upwork to prospect new clients and offer our services abroad. It helps us expand to another markets in North America and Europe.
  • It has a lot of job opportunities (single projects)
  • Great amount of companies searching for developers and designers
  • The search tool is awesome, offering tools and filters to display exactly what you are looking for
  • They could offer better pricing for small companies
  • Change the way they handle company accounts (who are offering services), it's somewhat confusing
  • Since there are so many developers, they could better distinguish job offerings from individuals to companies
  • They charge a huge amount (around 20%) of every payment, besides Paypal's taxes.
  • But, it enables us to reach a huge amount of new clients with a monthly payment.
  • It's been somewhat difficult to get new jobs, since we're a company and we compete with individuals who have much cheaper prices.
I've never used similar products to Upwork, so I can't compare it to others, but I know they can improve on services from a company (looking for jobs) perspective.
I think it's perfect for short term projects, since if you work with clients from around the globe, you don't know if they're organised and follow best practices on project management.
