    I have been working at Upwork full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic and experience team of dedicated and team-oriented members.

    Cons

    Organization is very compartmentalized. Info not shared well across departments and teams, leading to duplication of efforts and needless 'reinventing the wheel', a waste of time and resources. Technology platform can be challenging/buggy, but is improving.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Upwork.

    Interview

    One phone screen and onsite, got the offer. People is nice and fair on the process. The management is really dedicative and even call you on the weekend to discuss the offers detail. The general feeling by just looking into the management background, it looks like the company is doing well and should have some future.
